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. 2019/03/13

Zedler-Institut put into operation third test lab

It was only just a year and a half ago that the test institute Zedler in Ludwigsburg moved into their new innovative energy-efficient building. The company announces now that the third laboratory is being operated by the test engineers since the beginning of this year. It reportedly included the testing systems of the category Safety, for ex. the new pedal and bell testing systems as well as the roller for wheels.

For wheel tests: Test lab with roller-type test stand.

According to the information obtained from Ludwigsburg, these testing systems were complete in-house developments. Their range of functions would, of course, cover the relevant standards, but they would also offer the possibility to perform tests according to the intended purpose of use that may go far beyond the tests specified in the standards. According to the statement, experience had shown that often enough the natures of loss which are known from thousands of analysed failures on the road or in the terrain could only be reproduced with supplementary test procedures.

With the new testing systems the high internal standards of Zedler-Institut, such as constant climatic conditions, high load carrying capacity and vibration reduction of the floor as well as bright radiant LED illumination for crack detection, have now been realised for the rotating tests as well.

In the company own test laboratory in Ludwigsburg quality, stiffness and service strength tests are carried out for customers from all over the world.
