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.

Insights into the Zedler institute

A few days ago a visit including technical training for manufacturers only was organised by VSF accademy at the premises of the Zedler institute in Ludwigsburg. 

In the evening hours on October 28, the event started with an informal warm-up meeting at a restaurant. On October 29, one got down to basics. Before the tour through the institute started, the event was opened from 9.00 o'clock on by lectures on damage incurred in practice on carbon, pedelecs and load bearing components. The event was completed by the presentation of specialist knowledge on current legal practice in the case of damage, operational safety and the necessity of technical documentation. 18 participants, not only manufacturers, but also media representatives, experienced an extremely informative event.
