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.

Provide impetus for more bicycle

On May 12 and 13, 2014 the third vivavelo conference of the bicycle sector took place in Berlin. The conference focussed on future oriented issues of the bicycle industry as well as on the dialogue with politicians. The event was under the patronage of NRW Prime Minister Hannelore Kraft.


Graduate engineer Dirk Zedler, bicycle expert, Zedler - Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit GmbH:

"Every two years an argumentative audience extremely interested in the matter meets at vivavelo. It becomes again and again clear that there is actually the need to discuss such perspective issues more often. The mixture of technical presentations, the variety of topics and the collection of bright minds from the sector of vivavelo 2014 was sensational. Unfortunately, it seems that the interest of most in the sector is still not as high as required by the bicycle as emerging and promising means of transport. That raises the question to me whether our sector is actually able to position the issue bicycle mobility in a future-proof way?"
