2nd and 3rd July 2016, Kirchberg, Tirol, Austria: a quite extraordinary experience. Your dream pedelec at one of the most beautiful test-ride locations worldwide. With ExtraEnergy Test IT Show and LEV Components Special Exhibition.

With the ExtraEnergy Test IT Track on site, this second e:bikefestival in the Kitzbühel Alps, on the 2nd and 3rd July 2016, offered the opportunity of the year to test-ride electric bikes. The huge selection of electric bike models let you experience for yourself the widest possible variety of riding sensations. And with the LEV Components Special Exhibition, themed leisure rides, a ‘night owls’ ride, electric bike riding techniques training, speed testing and a pedelec book tour, it was a remarkable experience like no other.

The ExtraEnergy Test IT Show
The Test IT Show is a test track on which all sorts of pedelecs and e-bikes can be test-ridden. Its layout includes curves, straights and an almost 20 m long section with a 10% gradient for ‘hill-climbing simulation’. Test riding has proven itself the most persuasive way to convince people about electric vehicles. Even sceptics become electric bike riders with huge smiles after a few circuits of the test track. And among these riders are often people who have not cycled at all for many years before.

New mobility for new thinking
This fun-factor will result in the pedelec eventually becoming an everyday form of transport, in which role they can be an effective countermeasure against physical inactivity, the main cause of the diseases of modern civilisation, as experienced pedelec users have already discovered. Testament to this is a comment from someone who has ridden pedelecs for many years, heard by side of the Test IT Show track: “I’ve had an electric bike for three years now. I can’t imagine anything more wonderful.”
