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., 2019/03/07

Test institute Zedler expands testing facilities on their premises

About half a year ago the impressive new company building of Zedler-Institut opened officially (...). But the wheel keeps on turning; that of owner Dirk Zedler, as well, who continues to invest in his test institute and his equipment. Most recent example: a third test lab that was put into operation recently.

New roller type test stand in third test lab

The testing systems of the category safety, for ex. the new pedal and bell testing systems as well as a roller type test stand for wheels, are located in the new lab. In this lab the high internal standards of the test institute were also implemented just like in the already existing test labs. According to Zedler, these are namely constant climatic conditions, high load carrying capacity and vibration reduction of the floor as well as bright radiant LED illumination for crack detection.

The new testing systems were also developed in-house and Zedler states that their range of functions would cover of course the relevant standards. They would 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 Zedler, experience had shown that often enough the natures of loss which are known from thousands of analysed failures on the road or in the terrain could only be reproduced with supplementary test procedures.
