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.
In 1919, the 16-year-old rural postman Heinrich Kalkhoff founded the Kalkhoff company in his family home in Cloppenburg. As a postman, he often had to contend with a flat tyre on his bike, so he began to deal with bike tyres and other bike parts.
From 1920 onwards he also bought and sold used men’s and women’s bikes, as well as spare parts.
In 1923 he began producing his bicycle frames together with two employees. By then he had built offices and a production facility on the grounds of his family home.
We want you to get wherever you’re going quickly and safely – to work, into town or touring the countryside on Kalkhoff electric bikes.

Most importantly, we produce both the chassis AND the drive system of our e-bikes in-house, which means we’re able to tailor them to your requirements all the better. What advantages do the centre motor, front- and rear-wheel drive offer? Which is the best e-bike for sporty riding and which one will give me a natural riding experience?
