The outback patroller
The Kalk AP has been engineered for wildlife conservation areas, a force to be reckoned with along the trails of the African bush. 18" off-road tires, a rear carrier to attach various equipment, suspension modified for low maintenance – the electric anti-poaching bike is built for efficient wildlife protection, with premium components for low maintenance and long-lasting use.

Developed in close collaboration with the Southern African Wildlife College.
All power, no compromises
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.
- Mfana Xaba, Anti-poaching team leader at the Southern African Wildlife College.
“The petrol bikes we’ve used previously have all been loud, heavy and expensive to keep running in these areas. The CAKE bikes are quiet, which makes it easier for us to approach poachers undetected."
”This partnership […] is extremely exciting. We are very proud to be partnering with CAKE and Goal Zero to test these electric off-road bikes given the impact that this could have on countering poaching across Africa.”
Cake B2B Manager and First solo rider to cross Africa on an electric bike
"90km of this without taking a break, crossing the border from Guinea-Bissau to Guinea through the jungle… I loved it, definitely one of the best days of my life and one that I’ll remember forever!"
Founder & Guide at Skojphoj
"Everyone can ride. Kalk is a beauty to ride. Its silent power, torque, and swift handling is a sensation for everyone in all off-road environments”
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 AP delivers 280 Nm's of powerful, rear wheel torque.
Suspension, Wheels & Tires
Equipped with 200mm travel, the upside-down MX spring forks with rebound adjustment offers everything you need for both the outback and paved environments. The Kalk AP comes with wide 18" off-road tires, optimized for riding in harsh environments and remote areas. Sturdy motorcycle rims together with dual sport motorcycle tires easily meets the toughest of demands.
