e-KOSTKA arrives! Discover the reasons for the first edition of Czech electric footbikes...
This is a smart e-footbike produced in Czech Republic. You can travel so easily and so lightly as you have never experienced before. The system is based on sensors which are located in footbike’s hub. These sensors record people’s motion activity and respond to all your impulses. Whether you want to ride faster or slower, the footbike adapts to all what you need - you will experience the feeling of synergy and enjoy the swiftness and ease of motion.
Two modes, many possibilities
There is a lot of options you can set up. And then you just push off! You can set up parameters using a mobile app which adapt footbike’s behaviour to your needs.
The PEDELEC mode will enhance the needed pushing power, so you can move very easily. If your speed drops to 6 km/h, the footbike will maintain it. Since it is speed of an agile person, you can easily move among other people. The speed support works up to 25 km/h.
The FUN mode adds another function - it will maintain the last reached speed for the specific duration you set up. It includes the push-enhancement function, just as in the PEDELEC mode. Both modes include energy recovery. The maximal speed of the FUN mode is 20 km/h.
You no longer need to worry about cables or unwanted damage. This unique system is based on the All-in-one solution, which means that all equipment (including sensors and batteries) is placed in the compact e-hub with nominal power 250 W.
No registration or insurance needed
The Footbike Pedelec mode meets the strictest German legislation for electric footbikes - and you need not register anywhere or have an insurance.
*The legislation requirement can differ from country to country. You should always check the information of the appropriate country authority. E.g. in Czech Republic you can use both modes without any restrictions.
Safe and controllable
The big front wheel provides you an easy ride through all obstacles. The tires Schwalbe (German brand) will provide you a comfortable feeling. The optimized geometry is based on the long-year experience in footbike production. This makes our footbike models very stable and easy to control. You needn’t be afraid of an unpleasant bumpy ride because the e-footbike is small and unstable. The brakes Shimano will provide an excellent braking performance. Now you can simply enjoy your ride!
Control by phone app
You can connect to your mobile device via Bluetooth and check your speed, your location or distance travelled. The whole setting is done through the mobile app - there you can choose various parameters such as Kick intensity, Assistance duration or Kers (energy recovery). You can pair more footbikes with your smartphone and choose the actual one. But you don’t need a smartphone for riding!
Energy recovery (recuperation) and quick charging
You can use the energy recovery while braking or downhill riding, which allows you to charge a little bit energy back again. The time it takes to charge can be only about 2 hours using a standard 2A charger, which won’t overuse the battery too much, so that it can hold up to 1000 charge cycles!
160 Wh lithium battery provides a highly-developed power management and energy recovery system. The PEDELEC mode ensures the range of 50 km, while the FUN mode up to 20 km. But the real values always depend on the assistance set up, route profile and footbiker’s weight.
Stretch your body
We preserved all qualities of a sports footbike. That’s why the ride is quick and easy but and you can stretch your body without any additional efforts. Do you want to exercise while coming back home from work? You can just reduce the engine power and make something good for your health! The footbike helps you to stretch and strengthen your muscles, improve your joint condition and prevent back pain.
Low weight but big weight capacity
The weight capacity is designed for 150 kg while dynamic load. We test the lifespan of our footbikes on our testing places, where we check the material fatigue behaviour during real ride simulation. A low weight of this e-footbike ensures perfect driveability and manipulation.
You can fold the footbike easily in two steps within a second. The FOLD system provides the handlebars folding and the SPIN system ensures that the frame can be rotated around its axis. You will get a compact package which you can carry while travelling by public transport or car and which you can deposit where it is necessary. Our unique folding systems will help you with this!
5 model variants
We present a total of 5 different models of electric footbikes.

Limited wedding edition
We would like to introduce your our unique wedding limited edition footbikes. These models were made especialy for Marek II. and Eva's wedding. Footbikes are made in limited number.
As Marek says about these models.
"The idea of creating this limited edition was basically spontanious. For our wedding, I want to make footbikes, which will reflect some of our wedding's features. And so the first four footbikes were created, which accompanied us throughout the day. There were ment to be a symbol of what we live for in our everyday lives."
"I also wanted to give myself a present in a form of a new footbike. This led to a creation of our new model, which we cal Travel. This model is basically created from our favorite model - Tour, but the steering geometry and frame tube were completely redesigned. We also make the front wheel bigger - 28". We have designed something, which we want to introduce to all of our customers. This footbike can excite more people in the same way, as it excites me. I personaly would recommend this scoter to people from medium to tall height. I think, that this is one of our best sports-touristic models we have ever made."
"And since the color combinations were such an success, we decided to make them available in limited numbers for sale, so everyone can have one of these unique footbikes. We'll see when our son Mark III will have his own edition."
Let us now show you these exceptional models and talk about them a little.

We are focused on the development and production of scooters for more than 15 years and during this period, we were able to monitor the newest trends in the development of this branch. However, recently there are new products introduced on the market, which are suspicious by their price and also by the weird quality of their execution and possible similarity of products. Purpose of this article is the response to questions of customers, if we are producing scooters under different brand than ours and if we are not participating on this in some manner. We would like to assure you in advance, that we are definitely not. Our objective is not to sell the product for any price to the detriment of quality or subsequent customer service.
Boom of scooters
Current increased demand for scooters and increasing popularity of riding of scooters brings the justified effort of brands to not sleep through this boom and to establish themselves in the still young scooter market literally at any cost. If this is not be performed quickly, they are usually after the first or second season reassessing their efforts and they will try to direct their efforts to the other sales item with which they will try the same as in previous cases. They will change their bearing programme with a clear conscience and they will focus their efforts on potential customers in a new territory. Frequently, commercial companies are acting in this manner rather than production companies. Compared to that, a production company may show off the peep into its own production. A commercial company more likely hides a producer from its nature, because it does not want to reveal its supply chain to other dealers.
We, as one of already established producers, may promise, that we will be acting in the manner as our customers are perceiving us for many years. We are not sleeping, stagnating, we are not stopping to continuously increase the quality of final product, including the development of suitable and compatible accessories and we are not going to stop with the maximum effort and we will never provide a fake “statement” with the objective of maximum turnover or annual profit at any cost.
The thing, which we are adding to the product the most, is the above-standard care about the product already during its development, including the use of suitable material, creation of the birth certificate of scooter and documentation of compliance with relevant ISO norms. However, it must be said, that current requirements imposed on the construction of scooters as for the legislative point of view included in the relevant norm are not reflecting the current status of development of this branch. This is why we have created our own methodology of designing and testing, which imposes higher requirements on individual parts in comparison with the relevant norm. Such marginal conditions specified according to our own measurements of ride under various conditions are much closer to the real operation. We are then verifying particular construction suggestions on our own testing machines, which are verifying the behaviour of components during their lifetime before they are delivered to a customer.
How can I recognize your scooter?
First of all, we are recommending to visit the specialized store, where we can help you with the selection, but where you will be also able to try scooters and to avoid other problems.
It is not necessary to mention the whole range of clearly identifiable characteristics of our products and also the regular voluntarily performed certifications of products at the relevant national testing body. Even if it is performed by an independent auditor of national body, such testing cannot absolutely discover possible hidden defects of the final product and it is not evaluating the manufacturing quality. During the selection it is necessary to focus especially no details, such as the quality of joints and the locating of individual parts on a scooter. Plagiarisms are often copied without the thinking about the function and use of individual original components and their copy may lead to the higher danger or discomfort during the use of such product.
Plagiarists are usually not undergoing such certifications, which are valid for more years, and the problem may be postponed by a “declaration of conformity”, if necessary. The dilemma of producer, if it shall pay hundreds of thousands for certifications and patent claims with an uncertain result, is crucial. At the same time, the essential question for a potential plagiarist or any commercial company newly entering the market is for how long this product should be sold in fact before there will be discovered some more interesting product. Here, it is not looking for the prevention, but it is only waiting, if somebody will object to such acting and then it will focus its main effort to the downplaying of such problem and through legal obstructions it will pulverize the nature of such problem to less significant partials elements with the objective to not pay for the violation of patent rights and their claims.
Good price is misleading
Of course, you can save some money during purchase, but it is necessary to realize, that a scooter should bring you especially the joy of movement. This is why it is necessary to consider, if the saved amount is adequate. During the selection of scooter, we recommend to select scooter of traditional and proven brands. Thanks to this, a scooter will not discourage you from this sport after the first couple of rides, there will not be any issues with the maintenance, you will receive a long-term customer services and if this sport will not interest you in the end, you can believe that the price of a quality scooter is not declining and you can send it for a really good price even after several years.

The footbike KOSTKA is completely produced in the Czech Republic. The company KOSTKA has almoust 15 years tradition. The frames and parts are made by contemporary and robotic technologies just in the Czech factory in Potucnik. The assembly of the footbikes is made in our factory too, however not by robotic machine, but just on the contrary. The footbike is brought to the word by professional obstetrician, which put life to the footbike with love. In each peace is inscribed work of „the gold czech hands“ by the indelible writting.
We permanently develope news, which push ahead comfort, driving quality and value of the footbike. The company KOSTKA has own developmental centre and own team of professional designers and developers. Every inovation we test properly in the long term and in extrem condition and we find out practical experience from professional drivers, footbikers and mushers from all over the word. Without own developmental and continuous testing can not be succeeded any producer in the contemporary word.
The footbikes are equiped by first – rate components – brakes, tyres, rims, hubs. We still increase utility value of footbikes by practical supplements which are „tailor - made for footbiking“. These are adaptors, holders, stands, bags, and many practical supplements, without which serve footbikes only half – fully. The footbikes KOSTKA have very nice impressive design and they can find use in many activities such as tourism, sport, racing, city transport, supplement of yachts, caravans and similarly.
Our young team is opened by new ideas and inovations. Therefore we are able to present quality of Czech work in Western Europe markets, too.
Dear readers and visitors,
our success is success of everybody and is created primarily thanks to you. You bring us many impulses and inspirational ideas. We apply them in practice. Without you, satisfied, loyal and respectable customers we would never achieved any success.

KOSTKA MAX - GOLDEN MIDDLE CLASS
MAX model line scooters are middle class models for the most widepsread customer group and for the everyday movement and hiking trips. Great riding abilities as handling or stability even in the higher speed is able thanks to the new geometry and new front wheel fork. New tapered design of frame and forks, based on 65mm wide hubs prevents the foot contact with the scooter through the "kick" process. Great driving comfort is guaranteed by wheels with stainless steel spokes with double-wall DRAGON rim together with hubs equiped with industrial bearings. Speed, comfort and safety is guaranteed by Schwalbe Marathon Racer tires and Shimano 4000 brakes. The rear brake cable is coated with a NANO layer, which is reducing the friction and provides better operation of the brakes.
Differences between model lines 3 and max
Max series Scooters are equiped with higher quality and more expensive components, Those factors highly improved riding ability, comfort and of course the maximal speed.
Discover all the news and inovations with us!
Scooters are now equiped with KOSTKA HK 6542 hubs, those are manufactured directly at our company. Their advantage over previous hubs lies in using much better bearings with longer lifetime, lower rolling resistance and lower profile. We were able to use inner axle with greater diameter in the hub, this inner axle is tougher and stronger. The construction of the hub was remastered. Now it's not prone to self-adjustment (bearing preload from manufacturing), because there hub is using floating bearing storage. Hub has no threads, so there is no chance of weakening it's parts. You can also pretty simply disassemble the hub and clean it.
KOSTKA SK 2822 stem optimalization brought us lower weight and also a huge step forward in design of the whole component, which fitts better to the scooter conception. The stem includes an opening, which is used for equipment mounting. On the bottom side there is a thread for mounting the dog adapter. This stem is newly used on TOUR models as well.
FBH 20 handlebars (STREET, HILL, TWENTY) are now made without the crossbar, so they are more pliable and can better absorb micro vibrations. New KOSTKA FBH 26 handlebars are made from high-strenght aluminium and are ergonomically adjusted especialy for scooter enthusiasts needs. They are replacing the original MTB handlebars used in the cycle industry. The advantage of using these handlebars is in easy and switching to another handlebars with different heights. Thanks to this, you wont need the adapter for raising your handlebars anymore. Together with the KOSTKA SK 2822 Stem they are singnificantly contributing to better control of the whole scooter.
The A-Head headset is an improved solution to the steering system placement, eliminating free play in the steering.
It is completely dust- and waterproof. It is used for transmitting motion from the handlebar to the fork.
The change of the fork geometry contribute to an increase in driving abilities, especialy in the handling of the scooter. The fork offset is solved by tilting the arms of the work, instead of the previous bending, so there is a huge increase of the material stiffness. Thanks to the milled endings of the fork there is no need of using the pad with the hooks. This way of mounting is not only better from tho construction point of view, but is also more aesthetic.
Bellow stem rings
Also the distance rings went throught the redesing. They fits even more with the whole scooter design.
Rear brake cable
The rear brake cable was replaced by cable coated with a layer of NANO, which is reducing the friction and provides better operation of the brakes.
Grips from high density foam are replaced by the original rubber one. There is an improvement in comfort and holding these grips now feels more comfortable. They are also able to better absorb all the micro vibrations.
Change in frame and handlebars plugs, which are equiped with the reflective stickers.
All of the scooter stickers are now made from reflective material. You will find a reflective sticker under the identification tag, which is increasing the safety.
New bags fixation. Instead of the previous handlebars fixation are the bags now fixed straight to the KOSTKA SK 2822 stem. This solution enables simple and quick mount/unmout of the bag. Also in the STRRET, HILL, TWENTY models we were able to increase the size of those bags.
