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.

Invisible damage

Is it necessary to always replace sensitive carbon parts after a fall?


“Handlebars, seatposts, forks etc. should be replaced as a preventive measure, serious testing is too expensive. For frames it is different, in this case either the manufacturer or a specialized laboratory can perform tests. Defects on current frames of serious manufacturers are anyway either visible or there are actually no defects. The second good news is that the feared sudden and complete failure, also referred to as “sudden death”, is no longer an issue on good frames today. A regular visual control of the entire frame for cracks, chipped-off paint or discolourations is a very good, preventive measure.”
