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.

How does the balance tilt?

Bicycles without motor sometimes get lost in the euphoria about electric bikes. Nevertheless, the industry sees a future for them, even when e-bikes get stronger.

SAZbike asks

What significance has the classic bicycle without motor today and in the future?

Dirk Zedler Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit

At present, the classic bike is in my opinion undervalued. For many purposes it is still superior to the pedelec. Especially in urban areas, light bikes are more practical to carry them to the basement, they are cheaper and therefore less attractive for theft, and they always do, because the battery is never empty. The overheated e-bike market will calm down, things will get back into balance in the medium run. Even in corona times, there was an increased demand for non-e, for which some dealers were not even prepared. I am looking forward to a time when the respective advantages will be fairly weighed against each other.



For many suppliers and service providers bicycles are and will remain an important product group. But many also believe that the share of electric bikes will continue to grow.
