Lightweight, torquey, quiet. The riding possibilities are endless.
A category of its own
Light & Powerful
280Nm of rear-wheel torque, housed in a lightweight chassi, creates a unique power to weight ratio.
The Kalk combines leading lightweight and sturdiness at maximum performance. No pollution, no disturbance. Explore with respect.
Electric drivetrain means zero emissions of carbon dioxide from riding. It also means that you can forget about fumes, oil changes, and filling up fuel.
”Like flying down an endless DH course with no need for a hill."
- Robin Wallner, Ibis cycles Enduro race team
”The reason the Kalk works so well is the use of a frame, a motor, suspension, wheels, tires, and cockpit all designed specifically for this weight class and riding style. Nothing is over or under-built, and that means lightweight, high performance."
“Thanks to an envelope-pushing powertrain with gobs of torque and a ridiculously light curb weight, the riding experience offered by the Kalk is genuinely unlike anything else out there.”
"Of the ebike craze, this is the finest one made."
Midsize - A new category of bikes
Introducing the Midsize category – a nimble form factor that make the most out of a powerful, all-electric drivetrain. Premium, proprietary components that can take a beating, while being feathery light. Enjoy the ride.
Ride mode 1
The ultimate mode during exploration. Top speed limited to 45 km/h (28mph) with 3-4 hours of battery range.
Ride mode 2
With 1-2 hours of riding time, a top speed of 70km/h and snappy acceleration, this mode is perfect for enduro riding out in the woods.
Ride mode 3
The perfect choice when you need all power available. Maximum torque and speed, no restrictions when it comes to performance. Up to 1 hour of riding time.
Braking mode 1
No simulated motor braking. Feels like riding a bike, perfect for smooth, relaxed sessions.
Braking mode 2
Similar to 2-stroke motor braking, with energy regeneration. As you release the throttle you feel the bike slowing down at a slow pace.
Braking mode 3
Similar to 4-stroke motor braking, with energy regeneration. The bike will slow down significantly when the throttle is released. A good choice for technical tracks when full control of the bike is needed.
The Kalk features a lightweight and class-leading, powerful battery with premium lithium cells for the best possible range. The battery is easily removable and can be charged when installed on the bike or separately.
The external charger uses standard 110v/220v outlets and gets you from 0 to 80% in two hours, 0 to 100% in three hours.
With a superior power to weight ratio, the mighty drivetrain of the Kalk OR Race delivers 280 Nm's of powerful, rear wheel torque.
