"Treat the Earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children."
-Native American Proverb
One of the primary reasons we've brought Kalkhoff to the U.S. is to provide Americans with better alternatives to their cars. Not just because bicycles are fun, healthy and convenient, but because each trip not taken with the car is a small victory in the effort to halt the trend of global warming.
About 25% of the trips taken in the U.S. are spent driving two miles or less. In many situations, riding a bike is the perfect alternative. But there are times (commuting to the office while dressed for work, riding uphill, etc.) when that becomes more difficult or less appealing. An e-bike can make all the difference.
Whether it is the recycled materials in our desks or the clean-diesel motor in our support cars (yes, we do have to drive sometimes) or the state-of-the-art -low waste and water-based painting process used by our manufacturing partner in Germany, we pledge to operate our business in a sustainable and environmentally conscious way.
For our customers, Kalkhoff bikes are the quality and value choice, providing a long-lasting, dependable, eco-friendly transportation vehicle. Our bikes are backed by our two year warranty on parts and labor, a warranty unsurpassed by other eBikes available in the U.S.. Now that's sustainability that's good for you and the planet.
If you have any thoughts on how we might build a more sustainable business, we would love to hear from you.
