Medienberichte und Publikationen rund um Fahrräder, Pedelecs, Technik und Sicherheit

Die häufigsten Sicherheitsrisiken, die uns in der täglichen Arbeit rund um Fahrrad-Sicherheit, -Technik und -Bedienungsanleitungen auffallen, publizieren wir auch in Artikeln in den führenden Fachmagazinen TOUR – Europas Rennrad-Magazin Nr. 1, BIKE – Das Mountainbike Magazin Europas Nr. 1 und E-Bike – Das Pedelec-Magazin, um diese für die Branche wichtigen Informationen einer größeren Öffentlichkeit zugänglich zu machen.

Auch die Eurobike Show Daily, Messezeitschrift der jährlich stattfindenden Eurobike Show, gibt uns seit vielen Jahren die Möglichkeit, unsere Sicht auf wichtige Entwicklungen in der Fahrradbranche in ganzseitigen Artikeln auszuführen.

Darüber hinaus sprechen wir regelmäßig in unabhängigen Fachvorträgen über alle Bereiche der Fahrradtechnik und des Fahrradmarktes. Auch weitere Fach- bzw. Branchenzeitschriften sowie immer häufiger Radio und Fernsehen zitieren uns in ihren Medienberichten und zeigen uns, dass wir mit unseren Hinweisen genau richtig liegen. In der Rubrik AKTUELL erfahren Sie laufend alle Neuigkeiten aus unseren Fachbereichen. Diese Berichte und Publikationen sortieren wir für Sie chronologisch bzw. nach Interessensgebieten. 2019/03/15

No fear of new markets - Zedler manuals in new languages

It may sound hard and for 20 years now there has been no doubt about the fact that the legislation for consumer protection is the same in all countries of the EU. It is in particular the Product Liability and the Product Safety Act as well as the Machinery Directive mandatory for e-bikes that require unambiguously comprehensive consumer information in national language.

Five additional languages, i.e. Croatian, Czech, Finnish, Swedish and Polish, supplement the portfolio of Zedler-Institut manuals that can be supplied within a few days. Just like our long-standing successful models English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and of course German the manuals available are standard-compliant and CE compatible for the bicycle categories pedelec, e-MTB, city/trekking bike, youth bike, mountain bike, road bike, toy bicycle and BMX.

Cross out your own effort from your to-do-list
Particularly in the case of pedelecs and e-MTBs the authorities do not show mercy: No manual, no conformity, no CE mark and thus no (legal) sale. With the manuals often awarded test winner and numerous times positively checked by market surveillance authorities all over Europe you are on the safe side when it comes to meeting legal terms and to you being released from liability.

We know that a market entry is expensive. For this reason we offer the manuals of our three individualisation categories Basic, Brand Basic and Individual in small quantities already and partly immediately ex warehouse. As a result, this essential part of your international activities does not require any relevant expenditure of time from your side.

Small quantities – minor invest
Your financial invest remains small, because we have already had our manuals translated by native speakers with a high affinity to bicycles, created printable files and checked them in many countries. You determine the quantity, we supply to your line within a few days.

What about the exotic languages?
Since the first manual for the contents of which we were fully responsible was printed in 1996 we have built up an own network of translators. For “our” natives terms like front derailleur or headset have nothing to do with “derailing” or “a pair of headphones”.

For customers with bigger quantities and worldwide market presence we have meanwhile supplied our manuals in more than 40 languages in more than 70 countries. Get in touch with our team of the Technical Documentation, we have got the tailor-made solution for you!
