Speed pedelecs re-write the rules of urban cycling – and the Kathmandu Hybrid 45 re-writes the rules for speed pedelecs. Conceived around our versatile, comfortable and practical Kathmandu Hybrid frame, fourth-generation Bosch power with a powerful 625Wh battery and easy-to-use Intuvia controller puts the world at your feet. Full of neat touches and equipped with the most reliable components we could find, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. The elegant frame features our sleek, strong and sturdy Integrated Carrier 2.0 – the perfect way to carry your belongings and essentials with you, whether you’re just nipping across town or exploring further afield at the weekend. The high-capacity battery is entirely contained within the bike’s down tube, thanks to our new Modular Battery System – but you can charge it without removing it. A Shimano 12-speed SLX and XT transmission transfers your pedalling and the Bosch system’s power seamlessly and smoothly to the rear wheel, while comfortable and grippy Marathon E-Plus tyres in a 55mm width work with the Suntour Mobie45 air suspension fork to ensure you’re comfortable and in full control. Powerful Magura hydraulic disc brakes with oversized rotors offer dependable stopping whatever the weather, full-length mudguards help keep you drier, built-in lights – with a brake light, too – ensure you can always see and be seen… and we even included a convenient kickstand so that you don’t need to rely on the nearest wall or lamppost. Fully equipped for any journey, the Kathmandu Hybrid 45 is the eco-friendly way to get around that you’ve been looking for.
