All about bicycles, electric-assisted bikes, technology and safety in the press

The most common safety risks that we come across in our daily work around bicycle safety, technology and operating instructions are also published by us in articles in the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR (Europe's road bike magazine no. 1), BIKE (Europe's mountain bike magazine no. 1), MYBIKE and EMTB in order to make this information, which is important for the industry, available to a wider public.

For many years now, the Eurobike Show Daily, trade fair magazine of the annual Eurobike Show, has also given us the opportunity to publish our view of major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent expert presentations about all areas of bicycle technology and the bicycle market. In addition, we are quoted by further special-interest magazines of the industry and the trade as well as increasingly by radio and television in their media reports, which shows us that we are spot on with our advice. The section "News" informs you about the latest news from our specialist areas. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to areas of interest.

Competence centre

Realistically, precisely, reproducibly – the EMTB testing system is the result of decades of experience of our affiliated magazines BIKE and TOUR. The symbiosis of competent field tests and comprehensive laboratory tests makes our test unique worldwide.

Trust, but verify – this motto has been programme for our affiliated magazines BIKE and TOUR for decades. Field tests alone, regardless of the experience the test riders may have, cannot produce comparable results over a longer period of time. Together with testing technology specialist Dirk Zedler (...) we have built up a test lab of our own for EMTB as well over the past years.


These are the testing methods of EMTB
EMTB tests all bikes and most components in their own test lab. Many of our test stands were developed by Zedler-Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit. The values measured in our lab together with the findings of the field tests feed our complex scoring system. This system allows us to make fine differentiations between the individual products. In collaboration with Zedler-Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit we constantly keep enhancing our measurement technology thus taking account of the product development in the bike sector. Details, photos and further information about our test procedures are available at
