about Kalk INK

The Kalk INK is based on the same technology as the Kalk OR. Same powerful drivetrain with slightly heavier and stable wheels and a simplified yet sturdier suspension. It’s all about fast, hassle free and thrilling backcountry exploration, without polluting or disturbing.

More about the Kalk INK

The focus on developing the Kalk Models has been off-road performance and innovation.
As there wasn’t anything off-the shelf to support the category, every single component had to be developed from an empty sheet, to support the intended level of quality and durability:
The sizing, the geometry and engineering of axles, hubs, rims, the cockpit and suspension, as well as building and customising the different parts of the drivetrain, together with developing a whole new chassis; having led to numerous patent pendings, constitutes the introduction of a new category, the Light Electric Off Road Motorbikes (L.E.Os). Please note that KalkINK is developed for off-road use only.
