All about bicycles, pedelecs, 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.

Zedler-Institut: Manuals in five new languages

User manuals made by Ludwigsburg’s Zedler-Institut are now available in the languages Polish, Croatian, Czech, Finnish and Swedish.

With the languages already available, i.e. German, English, French, Italian, Spanish and Dutch, the manuals can now be delivered in eleven languages. The manuals can be ordered for the bicycle categories pedelec, e-MTB, city/trekking bike, youth bike, mountain bike, road bike, toy bicycle and BMX.

According to the test institute, user manuals are required due to identic, EU-wide legislation applicable for consumer protection in all countries of the European Union. In particular the Product Liability and the Product Safety Act as well as the Machinery Directive mandatory for e-bikes would require unambiguously comprehensive consumer information in the respective national language. In the case of pedelecs manuals were required by law, because without manual these bicycles would not obtain a CE mark and were therefore not allowed to be sold.
