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.
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 testing systems of the category safety, for ex. the new pedal and bell testing systems as well as the roller for wheels, are located in the new lab. The internal standards of the test institute, such as a constant indoor climate, high load carrying capacity and vibration reduction of the floor as well as bright radiant LED illumination for crack detection, have now been realised for the rotating tests as well.
These testing systems are also complete in-house developments, as usual at Zedler-Institut. They also offer the possibility to perform tests according to the intended purpose of use that may go far beyond the tests specified in the standards. According to the institute, experience has shown that often enough the natures of loss which are known from thousands of analysed failures on the road or in the terrain can only be reproduced with supplementary test procedures.
