Review: Kalkhoff Include 8 Premium Electric Bike


Hi I’m Karen Wiener here at The New Wheel electric bikes in San Francisco and I’m standing here with the Kalkhoff
Include 8 Premium. Kalkhoff as a company has been really rethinking the way the
engineer bicycles the frames of electric bicycles in particular and this is their
take on the most sophisticated well-designed step through so often I
think that depth rules are not super well engineered not really taken
seriously this completely different so today we’ll talk about the features that
make this bike special you might enjoy writing it and hopefully you’ll get
excited about it the brakes Shimano hydraulic disc brakes
this means that the experience going down a hill is gonna be just as solid an
awesome going up so you can come to a full stop
incredibly quickly you can just said very steep hills with total confidence
that’s part of the kind of some very solid nature of the bike the include raft is custom ragtime rack
this means that you’ve got a standardized top which allows you to fit
in baskets bags but of course carry a bag like an orderly paneer on the side
these include has safety basics covered front and rear lights are wired into the
battery which means you always have lights when you need them and the bike
comes with integrated cast a lock that allows you to lock in basic locking
environments like when you’re standing with a friend on the corner or in your
garage excellent tires Schwalbe Marathon that are made for urban rioting and
super super puncture proof and sturdy vendors that are never going to rattle
on you and will keep you dry and happy and invoiced whether the centerpiece of
this bike is really the ways in which the drivetrain and frame are integrated
you’ve got the impulse Evo Dr combined with a Shimano Nexus eight with the
conduit of the gates carbon drive to impose Evo Dr piece of 80 meters and
will support your efforts of 220 miles per hour they’ve added a new level of a
cyst which is called ultra which will give you an extra boost of power when
you’re going up a steep hill the system uses many of the technologies that are
already on board all the great impulse motors that we see here the new wheel
this includes things like to shift sensor which acts like a clutch as you
shift and really protects the drivetrain it always cracks me up when I’m talking
to the germans and they say something about the HMI human machine interface
will do what we call the console and the centerpiece of the cockpit here on the
spec on the include you’ve got a clean set up a very clear and large display
where you can easily see the information that you need for speed your battery capacity estimated range
based on your battery capacity and level of USSS and then integration with a
smartphone act which will give you actually simple and useful turn-by-turn
navigation if you put a destination into the application the designers and
engineers really want the riders feel included as a part of this piece of
technology it’s really a bridge between machine and human power right and the
way that they’ve worked towards this is added features like a suspension at the
front door and the seat amazing comfortable grips made by earth on which
will give you a full him support we can customize the adjustment of the stem
this way you’re never gonna get numbness in your hands are always going to feel
comfortable and that is really part of the fundamental design of this bike if
you’re looking for a sturdy reliable and very high quality by this is the one
