Dekra and Velotech.de Join Forces in E-Bike Testing

In close cooperation with Velotech.de the international company Dekra will start to carry out safety related tests on fast hybrid e-bikes that apply for Vehicle Type Approval with any European approval authority. E-bikes are difficult to classify. For the time being, they are considered standard bicycles if motor assistance requires the rider to pedal in order to activate the motor and if it does not exceed 25 km/h and 250 W.
