Kalkhoff Include Premium 8 - City-Comfort Very Good, Easy Very Good

A high-endurance all-rounder with a well-balanced drive system and well-matched components. The Include Premium earned itself two “Very Good” verdicts – as an easy pedelec and as a city-comfort pedelec.
 

 
The Include from Kalkhoff broke the 100 km range barrier on the Tour circuit. It achieved this thanks to a large battery and a harmonious assist system which, in the hills, challenges the rider, so you need to contribute spirited pedalling, too. The belt drive, Impulse Evo motor and Nexus hub gear make a good team, and thanks to a pause in assistance for gear changes, the Nexus shifts positively and without graunching in all ride conditions, even under load. The ride quality of the Include was praised as exceptional by all test riders. Particularly impressive was the stability of the red ‘trapez’ frame, which has its rear dropouts neatly designed to match the carrier rack. Frame lock and battery are also very successfully integrated. The Include’s display is very legible and easy to operate. A solid stand, internal cable routing and good lighting are also, of course, present and correct. In short, a top class pedelec, but one which comes at a price. Note that from the 2017 model year, the Kalkhoff Include Premium 8 is no longer available in the cherry red colour pictured. Colours available are ‘diamondblack matt’, ‘absinth beige’ and ‘marsala red’.
