The next ExtraEnergy Pedelec and E-Bike Test will start on 11 March 2013. Manufacturers can register their vehicles until 6 March 2013.
ExtraEnergy has been testing pedelecs and E-Bikes since 1992. At that time only three vehicles were established on the world market. Meanwhile, participation in the ExtraEnergy Test is limited and much in demand. About 40 participants can be included in each test.
In June 2013, the test results will be published via the ExtraEnergy online magazine in English and German and on the magazine market in German language. The ExtraEnergy magazine reaches downloads of at least 40,000.
Riding and Ergonomic Test
The ExtraEnergy Pedelec and E-Bike Test is composed of 2 different tests. The Riding Tests take place on an outdoor test track to get an accurate picture of the vehicle on an every day use. They are conducted with an unique and special developed measuring technology. The parameter distance, support, efficiency of the drive, average speed etc. are determined for tour, hill and urban track.
The ergonomic test examines a product’s suitability for daily use and its intuitive usability.
