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.

"A brake pad loosening from the holder is not necessarily an immediate problem during braking. However, as soon as the rider opens the brake after braking, the brake pad can fall out through the developing gap as a result of the shocks occurring on the trail. 

If the rider wants to brake later, he comes to nothing. Repeated pumping is theoretically possible. But the experience from many accidents with brake problems has shown that there is either no time or the rider is too shocked that he can no longer react or makes a mistake. Even in cases where only the rear wheel no longer functions, bikers have overturned, because they pulled the front brake wheel too hard on impulse. There is no alternative to reliably working brakes."
