The 36V and 7.5AH lithium battery has a total capacity of 270 Wh: the manufacturer declares that depending on use, the range varies from about 30 to 70 km with a single charge. Of course, these parameters vary depending on numerous factors, including the weight of the cyclist, the type of surface, the slope and so on.

Carbon belt drivetrain: quiet and performing
Now, let’s move on one of the most important peculiarities of the K7, talking about the innovative chinless technology that we usually only find in high-end expensive electric bikes.
The Kakuka K70 is equipped with a single chain ring transmission with a carbon belt. This solution makes it more silent, precise and versatile, since it excludes all the problems related to the classic adjustments of the derailleur.
You can therefore forget about the annoying falls of the chain, or the constant adjustments of the gearbox. In addition, the belt does not require lubrication and will stay clean during use. Less fat on your pants and less worries even with frequent or daily use.
In addition, we also remember that the belt drive is lighter than a traditional configuration with chain and gearbox.
The carbon belt is reinforced and has a long service life, to ensure you have a large number of kilometres travelled before its replacement.
Kakuka K70: quality components
Now, let’s examine all the components that have been chosen for this modern urban ebike.
The aluminium frame employs hydro formed tubing and a high quality weld smooth finish, which helps make it even more refined and elegant. The Kakuka K70 is offered in two colours, respectively with the Silver frame or in the Black colour.
On the left side of the handlebar we find the classic hand crank accelerator, which allows you to activate the full electric mode. The handlebars are decorated with synthetic leather grips with visible stitching, for a retro appeal. The Black model features a combination of vintage saddle and grips in brown color.
In addition, the saddle is wide and light, and takes up the look of the racing models of the past: the shape offers ample support to the pelvis, for a comfortable and easy seat.
Braking is entrusted to a set of mechanical disc brakes with a Power Off sensor which interrupts the assistance of the engine when the pressure of a lever is detected. The disc system ensures safe braking in all weather conditions.
The 700C wheels are fitted with 32C section CST rubber slick tires. These tires offer a high level of smoothness and high abrasion resistance, for a long life. The sidewall of the tires is reflective, to optimize visibility on the road in low light conditions.
In conclusion, easy parking thanks to the practical central stand, which is stable and robust. The equipment is completed by a set of reflectors and a white (external battery-powered) front light.
Super light ebike: best in category
The complete Kakuka K70 weighs around 17.8kg – an amazing result for a “low budget” urban electric bike!
