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.

Electronics or 22 gears

Given that roadbike pros already deliver incredible performances, are then at least their bikes comparable to the material of a "normal" biker? The answer is: Yes and no.

(...)

The professionals' race bikes are not as different from the ones hobby cyclists can (soon) buy in shops as, e.g., Formula-1 race cars are from everyday cars.

(...)

Way ahead of its time is as well an apparently spectacular innovation which is tested during the Tour de France under toughest conditions: the electronic shifting system of market leader Shimano which is to be presented at Eurobike, the bike trade show taking place at the beginning of September in Friedrichhafen.

(...)

Dirk Zedler, sworn bike expert from Ludwigsburg an technical expert of roadbike magazine "Tour", is of the opinion that the bike professionals ride on the material they are given - also today, when they have to climb the 2802 meter high Cime de la Bonette, the "roof" of this year's Tour. They get custom-made material when it comes to shoes, tights and jerseys, but apart from this, the sponsor decides what is ridden on.

In comparison to hobby cyclists, roadbike pros often ride heavier material - especially when they have lightweight carbon frames. This is because their bikes do not only have to be solid (as they are exposed to more stress and strain), but also must comply with the 6.8 kg weight limit set by the international cycling union UCI. The time trial machines, however, are "special" equipment which is custom made and built according to the respective rider's body geometry for every (promising) roadbike pro.
