The first Bosch single speed e-bike — for fans of a well thought out design, coupled with reliable technology. This model doesn’t require a gearshift, as the powerful Bosch Active Line Plus drive unit more than compensates for this.
Fully equipment for the city: Karl has a complete lighting system and will impress with its crisp e-support, low-maintenance components and clean look. Karl can also be ridden with the motor switched off; and we also offer optional accessories for baggage and all weather conditions. Karl is reliable in every situation. The Bosch Active Line Plus drive unit ensures a natural riding experience. The special geometry of the frame guarantees sporty cornering. Despite its e-motor, Karl still has the typical ride feel of a Schindelhauer bike. Behind the tidy exterior is a technically complex in-house development that encloses e-motor and battery as compactly and elegantly as possible — without sacrificing functionality or stability.
The design is reduced with every detail well considered, with the hidden cabling a typical Schindelhauer feature. Reliability is paramount here: years of proven Gates CDX belt drive are complemented perfectly by the reliable Bosch drive unit.
Karl is a clean commuter pedelec; a genuine alternative mode of transport — without the need to find a parking space.
