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 put into operation third test lab

One and a half year after having moved into the new company headquarters in Ludwigsburg the test engineers of Zedler-Institut put into operation their third test lab.

The roller type test stand for wheels is also located in the third lab

The testing systems of the category safety, for ex. the new pedal and bell testing systems as well as the roller for wheels, are located in the new lab. The internal standards of the test institute, such as a constant indoor climate, 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.

These testing systems are also complete in-house developments, as usual at Zedler-Institut. They 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 institute, experience has shown that often enough the natures of loss which are known from thousands of analysed failures on the road or in the terrain can only be reproduced with supplementary test procedures.
