CAKEs mission is to contribute to speeding up the transition towards a zero emission society, combining excitement with responsibility. Developing light, quiet and clean electric off-road performance bikes, requires a cross-scientific approach to sustainability. To promote the competence and guidance needed in terms of sustainability, in the areas of clean technology, ethical conduct, circularity and life cycle perspective, to the benefit of people and the planet.
The lightweight electric off-road motorbike segment started with small, dedicated manufacturers assembling and customizing standard parts from the world of cycling and motorbikes. These hybrids, equipped with off-the-shelf motors, batteries and controllers have helped to define a new direction that changes the future of riding. The characteristics of an electric drivetrain, as opposed to a combustion engine, brings a number of exciting changes. The weight aspect is one. A dramatic reduction in weight, compared to a regular combustion bike, enables snappy and lively rides. The electric drivetrain makes riding more accessible for everyone regardless of their physical condition and experience.
Everyone can comfortably handle the bike. The fact that it’s almost completely silent boosts the riding experience and serves for the absolute presence and focus while out exploring. It also enhances the level of respect towards our surroundings and those sharing the space with us – whether they’re fellow hikers, wildlife or even your neighbors when riding around your backyard track.
CAKE creates a new category of premium electric motorcycles. The fact that there’s no pollution or fumes and that you can charge your bike with renewable energy throughout its lifetime is a true evidence of sustainability. CAKEs approach when building the bikes was: no compromises. Everything, from frame, to wheels, components, suspension and drive train have been specifically engineered and manufactured to reach the intended level of performance in riding, durability and overall quality. This multiple innovation and design awards winner brings you Kalk OR and Kalk INK racing bikes so you can pick your own adventure.
These two motorbikes were engineered for racing in kinship with the core aspects of the Kalk platform: light, quiet & clean. The combination of 280Nm on the rear wheel and being super light creates a unique power to weight formula with superior nimbleness and speed in technical, compact formats. Build a track in your own backyard, host a race at a square in your hometown or beat your fellows on gas bikes at the next enduro race.
