MAHLE ebikemotion: Award for technological innovation from the specialised press in Spain

February 11, 2019
Last Thursday, January 7th 2019, “The Bike of the Year 2019” Awards Gala was held in Madrid. These awards were organised by the Motorpress Ibérica group and brought together all the benchmark entities from the world of cycling at a national level for the 27th year of this event. By way of the specialised Ciclismo a fondo media, the magazines Bike and Triatlón, and the great biking community that consists of almost 20,000 readers in Spain and Portugal, these awards highlight the year’s leading moments in the world of cycling. And this time, MAHLE ebikemotion was present in a very special way, since we were awarded the special prize for “Technological Innovation”; a recognition that we were especially pleased to receive, and one that encourages our team to strive to improve every day in each of our technological developments applied to the world of cycling. It was an immensely proud moment for all of us who are part of MAHLE ebikemotion to share the stage at this gala with international figures from the world of Spanish sports such as Alberto Contador (Sports Career Award) or Rakel Mateo (Award for overcoming), and to share this gala event together with unique figures in cycling in Spain such as Miguel Indurain; figures who valued our contribution to the world of cycling very positively, with the hybrid bicycle systems we develop for the leading world manufacturers of road bikes. In particular these include bikes like the Orbea Gain, Wilier Cento1 Hybrid, Pinarello Dyodo, Bianchi eAria and Rible Endurance SLe, or electronic accessories in eMTB in emblematic bikes such as the BH AtomX Display or Rocky Mountain PowerPlay, among many others.

XD02, The new e-bike in town

December 11, 2018
Since differences really matter, it’s a pleasure for us to present a great electric bike with its own identity: the XD02 from Logo e-bikes; a spectacular electric bike that we’re sure will become one of the main benchmarks in the urban segment over the coming year. The XD02 model incorporates the X35 system developed by MAHLE ebikemotion, integrating it perfectly to ensure that no one is immune to the charms of this hybrid bicycle with a purely urban heart. It stands out, above all, due to its versatility, both in town and out of town, thus responding successfully to the difficult challenge of being the perfect bike for almost any occasion. The XD02 is a bike that adapts to you, to your daily needs and to your riding style, thereby presenting an innovative concept of a light urban bicycle. Its weight has been kept as low as possible (30% less than the market average) making it a bicycle that is responsive but without sacrificing any of its features. The transmission is smooth and silent, the indisputable hallmark of the “Gates Carbon” system, which also achieves a remarkable weight reduction in this model and ensures that this bike adapts perfectly to any terrain thanks to the two-speed system on the Kappstein Doppio pedal-set. Both systems become the perfect complement to our X35 system, thereby achieving the ideal bicycle. The XD02 transmits great sensations from the very outset. The careful design of its geometry, the quality of the materials and its excellent assembly are all striking features, giving the user unbeatable sensations on every outing. In addition, despite being an electric bike, the X35 has a hybrid system to ensure that the rider never lacks the feeling of control and pedalling so that every cycling buff can keep on enjoying their time on 2 wheels while minimising suffering at the more demanding moments of their trip.

Schindelhauer presents Adam, its e-bike with MAHLE-ebikemotion technology

November 22, 2018
In Berlin, on the 15th of last November, the premium German brand Schindelhauer presented its new e-bike models for 2019. The new Schindelhauer Adam stood out particularly among all the innovations presented, being an electric bicycle that maintains all the pure and minimalist lines that characterise this brand in every one of its creations. This purely urban bicycle integrates the motor and the battery developed by Mahle-ebikemotion perfectly, giving the sensation on first contact of being a bicycle with no power assistance, while in reality being one that will allow the rider to travel between 50 and 100 km in urban areas with electric assistance. At first sight the Adam’s geometry makes this bike look like a purely sports concept, yet that sensation changes completely on riding it, since it gives the user an amazing sensation of comfort. This is no doubt achieved due to the reduced weight of the assembly (13.4 kg) and a careful distribution of all its components, with all the wiring concealed inside the fork and the frame, giving rise to an extremely elegant appearance. This work of art on wheels is completed with components that are guaranteed to impress, such as the “Brooks” leather seat and handgrips, Gates Carbon Drive CDX drive belt, hydraulic brakes, etc. In addition, another great new feature that the Schindelhauer team demonstrated in this event was the LightSKIN LED lighting system integrated in the handlebars, an ideal complement to the LightSKIN LED rear lighting built into the seat post, both controlled to perfection using our iWoc® ONE remote control, developed by MAHLE ebikemotion. This bike is sure to become one of the benchmarks in the urban hybrid bicycle sector in 2019, destined to hit the streets from the summer of 2019 onwards, although it will be possible to reserve it from the beginning of the year at a price of €3.795 (19% VAT incl.)   Official press release here: https://www.schindelhauerbikes.com/en/Schindelhauer-Goes-Electric/   More information in networks (German) here: https://pedelec-elektro-fahrrad.de/news/schindelhauer-2019-die-e-bike-modelle-im-detail/204220/amp/
