From the small business of a country postman to an international bicycle brand – Kalkhoff was founded in 1919 by the 16-year old-Heinrich Kalkhoff in Cloppenburg and expanded to a globally active bicycle brand. Since Derby Cycle took over Kalkhoff in 1988, the brand has become a clear market leader with its bikes and above all e-bikes. The secret of the success: innovative products which inspire through their functionality and design. Or quite simply always an idea ahead!
