KARL is a modern, innovative Cycling-Lifestyle-Magazine. It’s goal is not only to motivate people to cycle, but to lift their enthusiasm for it. KARL exemplifies every perspective of life with a bike and is for those people who love to navigate life with a bicycle.. The name KARL pays homage to Karl Drais (1785-1851), the inventor of the original bicycle.
