Everyday and tour test riders autumn 2015

The ExtraEnergy Pedelec and E-Bike riding test autumn 2015 is completed. The test riders. What is their motivation to participate in the ExtraEnergy Test? What are their favorites in the test?

The ExtraEnergy test rides include instrumented riding on everyday and touring circuits, as ell as an extra test for off-road pedelecs.

During these test rides, the performance of each bike is tested by at least five test riders under a variety of conditions, and every test rider rides each pedelec.

The instrumented rides are essential for the determination of values for power assist factor (Tour), power assist factor (City), power assist factor (Hills, speed (Tour and City), range (Tour), range (Hills) as well as the values for ride performance with and without the motor.

At the conclusion of every test ride the test riders fill out questionnaires, awarding marks for each bike.
