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

In our daily work as we deal with bicycle safety, technology and user manuals we come across lots of safety risks. The most frequent ones are published in articles of the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR – Europas Rennrad-Magazin Nr. 1, BIKE – Das Mountainbike Magazin Europas Nr. 1 and E-Bike – Das Pedelec-Magazin to make this information important for the sector accessible to a wider public.

For many years now the Eurobike Show Daily accompanying the annual international Eurobike Show has given us the opportunity to publish our perspective on major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent lectures about all topics relating to bicycle technology and bicycle market. In addition, we are regularly cited by further special-interest magazines or trade journals as well as more and more by radio and television and in their media reports, which shows us that we are completely right with our information. The section NEWS informs you about the latest news from our specialist fields. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to topics of interest.

These are the testing methods of EMTB

Taken individually, the handling of many e-MTBs is good. Decisive differences become only obvious in benchmark tests which are therefore the core of our testing system.

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. Enduros get the highest score for downhill performance, 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.

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.
