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.

“Quick and dirty” at the cross duathlon

DIRTY RACE – Tough enough? That’s the claim of the cult race in Murr which has been taking place since 2002. Julian Großkopf and Philipp Kipker were definitely tough enough in icy winds on the last Saturday in January.

With only 40 seconds behind the winner, but 3:13 minutes ahead of the third-placed Julian cycled and ran confidently to the winner’s podium in 1:01:19.

The multiple German and European age group champion in triathlon (middle distance) was only beaten by the current German champion in cross duathlon, Jonas Hoffmann.

Not quite as far ahead as our working student Julian, but with a respectable 38th place, our quality engineer Philipp Kipker was fully satisfied. Philipp’s time of 1:18:11 minutes for the Dirty Race in the steep vineyards consisting of 5 km of road running – 15 km mountain biking – 4 km of cross running is something you have to make.

The two athletes were supported by Zedler-Institut with cycling material, jerseys and a loud fan block.

Congrats to both dirty racers from the entire team!
