Test winners of the 2017 ExtraEnergy Pedelec and E-Bike testing season will be honoured on the 15th April 2018 at VELOBerlin.
A superlative cycling festival
VELOBerlin 2018 promises to be a truly superlative cycling festival. The show area of 20,000 square metres at the Tempelhof Airport, with around 300 exhibitors and a comprehensive programme of events, ensures there’ll be maximum cycling fun on offer.
‘Testival’: ride the test winners
Many of the test winners, plus many other current pedelec models, can be test-ridden in the covered ‘Testival’ area at VELOBerlin. The ExtraEnergy test track at VELOBerlin is presented by Bafang, and it includes curves, straights and a section almost 20m long with a 10% gradient for ‘hills simulation’.
Travelling with an electric bike: tips and tricks
Find out everything you might want to know about undertaking your own pedelec expedition from Susanne Brüsch of www.pedelec-adventures.com on the 14th and 15th April at VELOBerlin. For over a decade, Susanne Brüsch has helped build, and supported, ExtraEnergy. In 2011, she broke new ground as frontwoman for the Pedelec Adventures project, and ever since this experienced journalist has, with her team, organised multi-week pedelec expeditions to exotic destinations to demonstrate what electric bikes can achieve.
Be there! The Pedelec Awards Ceremony takes place on the 15th April 2018 at 17:15 on the stage in Hanger 6.
ExtraEnergy has carried out independent e-bike and pedelec tests since 1992. Since then the organisation has established itself as the most influential information, user protection and promotional organisation for light electric vehicles (LEVs) worldwide.
The founders realised from the start that these vehicles need to be experienced first-hand. Since 1997 the Test IT Track has been on the road, and today has three units for the Test IT Show. ExtraEnergy is also rooted at its test facility in Tanna, where 25 years of test reports and LEV history are on display at the LEV Museum.
Other services on offer include presentations and exhibitions at trade and public shows, plus information distribution with the assistance of correspondents worldwide.
Alongside our physical presence, www.extraenergy.org provides a treasure-house of information online. With support from the European Union and the IEA (International Energy Agency), in 2012 the Go Pedelec! Handbook was published in German, English, Dutch, Hungarian, Czech, Italian, Spanish and Chinese, including much new information and best practice studies for electric-assist two-wheelers.
As founding members of the EnergyBus and BATSO (Battery Safety Organisation) associations, ExtraEnergy is also active on both the ISO (International Standards Organisation) Standards Committee, with a focus on mechanical standardisation, and on the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), and so helps set safety and communication standards for LEVs worldwide.
