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.

In times like these, with an exploding e-bike and e-MTB market the average prices of all bicycles are reaching levels that could hardly be hoped for and with the only shortcoming of delivery problems at the moment, suppliers of cheap brands also see their opportunity. Whereas the well-known special interest magazines as well as for ex. the German news magazine Focus and the German foundation for comparative product testing (Stiftung Warentest) usually take a critical look on high-value e-bikes, virtually no one examines the cheap offers of DIY stores and online shopping marketplaces.

The report that was filmed in the test workshop of Zedler-Institut focused on the question: “How much e-bike do you get for little money?”:
