Karbon Kinetics Limited (KKL) was founded in 2002 with a mission to develop the best electric bikes in the world.
After an extensive and in-depth product development process, KKL’s multi-award winning breakthrough product Gocycle was first made available to the public in April 2009. Inspired by F1 high-performance and automotive design, Gocycle is the first injection-moulded magnesium alloy bicycle in history. Lightest in class, environmentally sustainable and stylish with on-demand electric power, Gocycle is an automotive joy to live with.
Gocycle is the brainchild of Richard Thorpe, a former Mclaren Cars design engineer with a 25- year career working in the motorsports and light electric vehicle industry.
What is a Gocycle ?
A bespoke front-hub motor separates the powered drive from pedal drive.
Lighter and providing better front/rear weight distribution, this system also provides powerful advantages when the lights go green. Conventional e-bikes use derailleur gears which can leave even experienced cyclists in the wrong gear at the lights. Not only does Gocycle’s predictive electronic gear shift ensure that you are never in the wrong gear, the front hub drive never can be. Only Gocycle makes sure you always make a clean geta.
Gocycle provides contact points in exactly the same place as a large-wheel bike – but with more adjustment to fit more riders. The Vgonomic™-designed seat-post and frame geometry, combined with height and reach adjustable handlebars, provides adaptable fitting with superior comfort levels for a wide range of body types. Gocycle has an automotive inspired adjustable driving position. Cars come in one size with an adjustable position; so does Gocycle.
