The INK series

The Kalk INK is based on the same technology as the Kalk OR and brings 280Nm of raw electric instant torque to support your off-road adventures.

The unique power to weight ratio delivers superior nimbleness and speed in tight, technical environments. It’s all about fast, hassle free and thrilling backcountry exploration, without polluting or disturbing.

”Like flying down an endless DH course with no need for a hill."

- Robin Wallner, Ibis cycles Enduro race team

BikeRumor

”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"

Hiconsumption

“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”

Revival Cycles

"Of the ebike craze, this is the finest one made."

Braking Modes

No simulated motor braking. Feels like riding a bike, perfect for smooth, relaxed sessions.

Similar to 2-stroke motor braking, with energy regeneration. As you release the throttle you feel the bike slowing down at a slow pace.

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.

Components

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 INK delivers 280 Nm's of powerful, rear wheel torque.
