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.

Testing technology on the upswing

The product safety of bicycles is becoming increasingly important: This is the conclusion that can be gathered from the business report 2014 of one of the most renowned test institutes. With up-to-date services a basis was established for a further development of this business activity.

With regard to the past year 2014 the Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und –Sicherheit speaks of a "record-breaking development". Although the turnovers had constantly experienced a double-digit increase in the past years, a new high was achieved with a plus of 27 percent. In particular the testing department had reportedly developed disproportionately, whereas the turnovers in the two other business activities loss assessment and operating instructions had experienced a linear increase.

Dirk Zedler is happy that he can now reap the fruit of his consistent work in the testing department: "Our test laboratory is meanwhile equipped with 37 partly highly complex, static and dynamic testing systems. We are consistently able to conduct tests at short-term for our customers. Typically, it takes no longer than 48 hours until the respective test units are mounted on the testing systems; the results are available to the customer after one week at the latest," states Zedler.

New standards already in use

In addition, the Zedler institute has started a few months ago to test in accordance with the new DIN EN ISO 4210 standard which includes some new requirements on 200 pages. Apart from the tests in accordance with the standard, further tests were developed and validated. These are designed for bicycles and components facing demands going beyond the minimum requirements. With the so-called Multiload tests they were in a position to perform test cycles that vary or mix up load types as well as forces.
