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.

The Product Safety Act valid throughout Europe stipulates “A product…, must only be made available on the market if it does not endanger the safety and health of persons in case of proper and foreseeable use. The following points must be considered particularly when assessing whether a product meets the requirements ...:
The properties of the product including its composition, its packaging, the instructions for its assembly, the installation, the maintenance and the period of use.”
And further below in the Act: “Where specific rules have to be complied with regarding the use, addition or maintenance of a product in order to guarantee safety and health of persons, German language instructions for its use shall be supplied with the product when making it available on the market...”
