For over 95 years Kalkhoff has been developing impressive bikes on both the design and technology fronts. Every year we succeed in driving the trend forward and bringing significant innovations to market, Made in Germany at our facility in Cloppenburg.
Kalkhoff has one of the most advanced and largest test centres in Europe. Three engineers oversee this linchpin of production. They test frames as well as forks, seatposts, handlebars, stems, pannier racks, wheels, brakes, tyre-rim combinations, pedals, pedal cranks, grips and more, amounting to more than 1,000 parts a year.
Our references are the DIN standard PLUS and the even tougher in-house load testing standards.
Each Kalkhoff bicycle is individually assembled. The individual departments conduct quality controls throughout the production process. At the end of assembly, each Pedelec undergoes a 100% performance check in the test centre
The exact dimensions of all frames are checked here, and corrected if necessary.
Up to 6 coats of paint are applied. Even heavy hammer blows cannot harm the paintwork. Hard-to-reach spots are touched up by hand afterwards.
All spokes are mounted by hand and subsequently checked by computer scan.
After the décors are applied, they are given another coat of clear lacquer to ensure the colours do not fade.
At JE James Cycles we pride ourselves on selecting only the best possible bike brands that innovate and strive for improvements in cycle design and performance.
