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., 2020/09/17

Award for sustainable construction

Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH was honoured with the two top awards of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).

Presentation of certificate and plaque by Johannes Kreißig (DGNB chairman), Dirk Zedler (Managing Director Zedler‐Institut)

The building where the about 25 team members of the Zedler-Group are working within four business fields, reached best marks in the criteria “ecological quality, economic quality, socio-cultural and functional quality” of the demanding DGNB audit. The “Building in service”-certification not only examines energy-related and climate-friendly aspects, but also, for example, the mobility situation, the quality of living in the rooms and much more. The Ludwigsburg company is particularly proud of the fact that they reached the second best result ever with a degree of performance of 92.2 %. In addition, Zedler was awarded the “climate-positive” status, because the bicycle specialist produces more company-own electricity than the building consumes, including heating, lighting, etc. Even with the enormously intensive test operation, it is completely climate-neutral without certificate trading.
