FURTHER AND FASTER WITH IMPULSE EVO
Verdict of the pedelec tests: almost all of our e-bikes were rated “Very Good”. Coincidence? Absolutely not! All the features we include are of the highest quality and we aim to cater for as many of our customers’ requirements as we possibly can. The new Impulse Evo boasts a powerful battery and high-performance motor. The assistance comes in gently, resulting in a ride with a natural feel. The torque has even increased to up to 80 Nm and the range to up to 205 km.*
LONG SERVICE LIFE OF COMPONENTS
The components used on our e-bikes also include gears from the world’s largest manufacturer, Shimano, as well as SRAM. Another winning component is the Concept EX Pro LED front light which has been developed exclusively for us and boasts an output of 80 lux. Our product developers ensure that all components are developed with particular attention to a long service life and precise functioning. The results from the 2016 e-bike tests thus flow directly into the ongoing development of our existing bikes and new bikes.
