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., 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.
