The Kalkhoff Agattu Advance i8 is a classic touring electric bike sitting perfectly within Kalkhoff’s flagship Agattu range that’s stood the test of time.
It’s no surprise that Kalkhoff’s best selling bike, the Agattu, continues to go from strength to strength. This beautifully crafted touring electric bike has immense range as well as ultra comfort.

Available in both a 26″ or 28″ wheel size, the Agattu Advance i8 has a number of frame size options and is perfect for riders of all heights. The Impulse V2 alloy frame is strong yet light, and elegantly formed. Cables are neatly tucked away internally. Aesthetically, this e-bike is ergonomically designed for both gents and ladies seeking the very best in quality and comfort. Adjustable front forks make the Agattu Advance i8 a flexible performer and is suited to a multitude of different types of terrain. Canal tow paths, railway cuttings and firmer road surfaces are dealt with admirably.
The Impulse Evo Smart compact display is simple and easy to read and comes with a navigation app connection for use with a smartphone. It’s mounted centrally on the handlebar, positioned unobtrusively. Battery charge level, power assist mode, speed, daily mileage and odometer all feature. A nice backlit display ensures easy to read information at all times.
At the heart of the Agattu Advance i8 is the Impulse EVO motor. Strong and powerful, this high torque and reliable drive unit delivers where others fail. The combination of the Impulse EVO and huge 621Wh battery provide range and performance that’s hard to beat. Nexus 8-speed hub gearing ensure shifting is effortless, quiet and a real joy. Equipment levels include front and rear guards, a carrier and top performance lighting. On the front is a Herrmans H-Black MR8 LED with parking and daytime running light. Schwalbe Marathon puncture resistant tyres ensure hassle free rides. Braking is deployed via Magura HS11 hydraulic rim brakes for effective and decisive stopping power.
The Agattu Advance i8 is new for 2018, and is a great example of Kalkhoff’s best selling e-bike.
