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.

Zedler-Institut: Manuals in five new languages

User manuals made by Ludwigsburg’s Zedler-Institut are now available in the languages Polish, Croatian, Czech, Finnish and Swedish.

With the languages already available, i.e. German, English, French, Italian, Spanish and Dutch, the manuals can now be delivered in eleven languages. The manuals can be ordered for the bicycle categories pedelec, e-MTB, city/trekking bike, youth bike, mountain bike, road bike, toy bicycle and BMX.

According to the test institute, user manuals are required due to identic, EU-wide legislation applicable for consumer protection in all countries of the European Union. In particular the Product Liability and the Product Safety Act as well as the Machinery Directive mandatory for e-bikes would require unambiguously comprehensive consumer information in the respective national language. In the case of pedelecs manuals were required by law, because without manual these bicycles would not obtain a CE mark and were therefore not allowed to be sold.
