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.

Object of exchange

Nothing lasts forever. Mountain bike handlebars don’t either. Considering the increasing number of broken handlebars, you should control or exchange this part regularly.

Planes and bikes have not much in common except for one thing: They must be as lightweight as possible in order to need as little energy as possible – aviation gasoline or muscle power respectively. A plane’s parts are therefore constructed consistently to achieve endurance strength: They offer the best possible compromise between low weight and durability. Durable parts are made for a certain period of usage and intensity. After this period they are exchanged - no matter whether they have been damaged or not.
