The highest score is given to bikes for their riding behaviour in the field explored by at least three experienced test riders on different trails. Light trail bikes get the highest score for the handling on the trail and tourers for an uncomplicated riding behaviour. But we do not want to rely on our feeling alone. Our in-house laboratories are involved in every test. Is it possible to substantiate the impressions we gained in our tests by exactly comparable data relating to geometry and weight? In addition to classic values, we also determine special data such as ground clearance or height of the centre of gravity, which are particularly relevant for e-MTBs. Field tests with sophisticated measurement technology and standardised parameters provide information about range and motor characteristics.
With the step test in the EMTB laboratory we determine the ground clearance of the bikes. Thanks to the compact motors and batteries the light e-MTBs have clear advantages in these points over the classic models.
EMTB test partner
EMTB test all bikes and most components in their own test lab. Many of our test stands were developed by Zedler-Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit.
