Gocycle® is a new class of electric city cycle. Designed, developed and assembled in the United Kingdom by KKL, Gocycle is the lightest electric bicycle in the world weighing 16.2kg.
Gocycle's on-demand power comes from its Empower Pack® lightweight and micro-sized motor and electric control system. The electronic controls are placed within the front motor fork assembly for efficient power transfer from battery to motor.
With Gocycle, KKL introduces several breakthrough technologies and features to the bicycle industry. Gocycle is the world's first production bicycle to feature a completely enclosed multi-speed chain-drive with side-mounted wheels. The internationally patented Cleandrive® system's sequential three-speed, enclosed chain drive seals the chain and transmission to keep the rider's clothes clean, while offering a zero-maintenance drive-train.
Gocycle is also the first bicycle in history to use a magnesium injection-moulded frameset and wheels. Gocycle's entire frame and wheels are injection-moulded in high-tech and lightweight magnesium alloy. The Magflow® process delivers the smooth, seamless look and performance of carbon fibre but at one-tenth of the cost. This makes it possible to offer Gocycle at a price that is affordable for young city professionals and their families.
Gocycle is now available EU-wide at a retail price of 1158 GBP
