In 2019 the word "pedelec" will be 20 years. Nonetheless, the product itself is still very much in its infancy. The survey is still open for your participation.
The pedelec, often also called an e-bike, has earned itself a major presence on many cycle paths. Furthermore, for most dealers the pedelec is the dominant factor in turnover, and also a key driver of growth.
Thanks to electric assistance, cycling has once again become part of everyday life for many people. This is a development which ExtraEnergy has driven and supported since 1992 with independent product testing, test tracks, specialist training, special exhibitions of components and much more.
At ExtraEnergy we believe that awareness of the pedelec is now universal in people´s everyday lives, and that pedelecs serve people well. Nonetheless, the product itself is still very much in its infancy, and there are many technological developments yet to come. We endeavour to accelerate these developments through the independent information which we publish.
Because the cycle industry traditionally works in a very compartmentalised fashion, drive system and cycle component suppliers play a central role in driving innovation and utility for the customer.
Because the market is developing very fast we believe that it would be of benefit to all stakeholders if we can, for the upcoming EUROBIKE, collect and publish reliable data on the current market relevance of individual suppliers from the points of view of cycle manufacturers, cycle dealers and cycle end users.
For the evaluation of the surveys for vehicle manufacturers and dealers, we had not received enough data to be able to evaluate them until EUROBIKE 2019.
Therefore, we will puplish the results, as soon as sufficient data is received.
The results will be published for free access online, without identifying any participants.
