Issue 13 of the ExtraEnergy Pedelec and E-Bike Magazine is in English and German, and includes 26 detailed test reports and results. Find your perfect pedelec via the product categories. But don’t forget to take a thorough test ride before you buy.
In this, the 13th edition of the ExtraEnergy Magazine, the spotlight is firmly on the test results for the 2016 models which we tested in Autumn 2015, a total of 26 bikes. Seven of these pedelecs were crowned test winners, having most closely matched the requirements set for their particular product category.

Not all of the bikes submitted for this test are included in these published reports. Fahrrad XXL were obliged to withdraw their Carver Route e03 and PHT E CPS models from the test, although the results were excellent. The reason was changes in the specification between the test bikes and production models, so that these bikes were no longer representative of mass production bikes currently available. The ExtraEnergy Test only publishes test results for bikes which match production models actually on the market. This ensures the best possible consumer confidence, and that we are informing purchasers about products which are available to buy.
We hope that you will find your perfect pedelec within these pages, but don’t forget to take a thorough test ride before you buy. And do take advantage of ExtraEnergy Test IT Show events to obtain a first riding impression of the best pedelecs from this test; you will find the full events listing at:
We look forward to meeting you
