BICYCLE & PEDELEC

A few years ago, the successful motorcycle development of the EDAG Group gave rise to the development of bicycles and pedelecs. The recipe for success here: Developers who are passionate bikers themselves know what matters and make their hobby their profession at EDAG.  In addition to their know-how, our bicycle and pedelec experts draw on the specialist expertise in the EDAG Group, e.g. in the development of electronic components or in app & software programming. In this way, you benefit from our excellent overview of best global practices, which enables us to provide you with optimal advice and support during implementation.

Dynamic, agile and with a hands-on mentality, we accompany you from the first idea, through design, conception, development and prototyping to validation & testing - whether as a component supplier or as a total development partner.

FROM BIKERS FOR BIKERS

COMPONENT DEVELOPMENT

In component development, EDAG focuses on the classic hardware components of a bicycle: from the brake to the handlebar to the seat post.

    • Component development and design, function development
    • Development of brake components (virtual and on our brake stands)
    • Development of spring/damper elements virtually and on our test benches
    • Validation and endurance tests

FRAME AND CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT

We design and detail complete bicycle and pedelec concepts. We also develop and build so-called "test carriers" for component suppliers.

    • Engineering and design
    • Kinematic design (Anti-squat, Anti-whip, frame size)
    • Design and structure optimisation
    • FEA (rigidity, resilience, durability)
    • Composite Layer Definition
    • Validation and endurance tests

DRIVETRAIN DEVELOPMENT

In pedelec development, we focus on the development of the drive system, battery system and the control of these systems.

    • Engineering and design
    • Design of engine and gearbox
    • Design battery + BMS
    • Development of control units (software/hardware)
    • NVH
    • Thermal

Digital Business

Benefit from our technologies and developments that make cycling safer, more exciting or even more fun.

    • Ideas, applications, development methods
    • UX/UI Design, Display Design
    • Frontend/backend/app development, operation
    • IT development assistance
    • Connectivity solutions, HMI concepts

COMPONENT AND CYCLE TESTING

Let us find out at an early stage about the performance of individual components or your bike/pedelec. This will save you from unpleasant or possibly legal surprises.

    • Testing of the braking systems
    • Suspension Testing
    • Validation and endurance tests on special test stands
    • Stiffness and strength tests of the components and frames
    • Environmental simulation tests (corrosion, sun, climate)
    • Vibration tests
    • Driving tests
    • Battery protection
    • Powertrain Testing
    • Safeguarding on the test stand
    • Realistic safeguarding in the road test

DEVELOPMENT OF TESTS AND TEST STANDS

We design and manufacture customised test benches and test bench technology for the safeguarding and testing of bicycles, pedelecs and their components.

    • Test systems according to customer requirements
    • Complete or individual solutions
    • Modernisation of test stands
    • Endurance test stands for E-drive units, electronic components, batteries and chargers
    • Stiffness and strength test stands

CYCLE AND COMPONENT PROTOTYPE CONSTRUCTION

We transform the virtual product into a hardware prototype.

    • Components and frames
      • Prototype construction of frames (aluminium and steel)
      • Prototype construction of bicycle components (aluminium, steel, titanium, carbon)
      • Prototype construction battery and drivetrains
    • Manufacturing technologies
      • Additive manufacturing (metal, plastic)
      • Welding operations (aluminium, titanium, steel)
      • Casting, forging and milling work
      • Laminates
