“The Chainglider is protected by several national and international patents,” says Hebie CEO Dirk Niermann. In the past years we have invested in extensive technical expertise for the continuous development of the product resulting in a large variety of models.”

“It is a shame that in this case of patent infringement we do not need to address manufacturers in the Far East, but a European bicycle distributor. We call upon our customers to report any dubious third party offers.”
