Eurobike 2019: Special cargo bike area with 32 specialists – Strong growth in cargo segment – Compact solutions on the rise

Cargo boom – at Eurobike too Friedrichshafen – A glimpse of the market figures currently conjures up a gentle smile on the face of many a bike manufacturer. But where the producers of cargo bikes are concerned, the smile turns into a broad grin. The sales figures for cargo bikes are simply soaring, particularly for those models where an electric motor is propelling bike, rider and load. During the Eurobike trade fair from 4 to 7 September, practically all the relevant market participants will be represented with their forthcoming models for the 2020 season. The Eurobike Academy program also reflects the trend theme. “In 2012, when we were one of the first manufacturers to have an e-cargo bike in our model range, there was still no discernible growth market for many people. Since then a lot has happened. As we offer the right cargo bike for every application, we are […]

MERIDA 2020 – eONE-SIXTY DESIGN MEETS HERITAGE

The ‘original’ eONE-SIXTY is the most decorated, tested and awarded bike in MERIDA’s history and has shaped what MERIDA is known for today: innovation, quality and outstanding performance. However, after three years at the top of the e-enduro ranking, it was time to distil the essence of the ‘old’ eONE-SIXTY, incorporate the latest trends and standards, and create the new version: goodbye and hello eONE-SIXTY – the new MERIDA benchmark for dynamic and design.  The new eONE-SIXTY once again embodies e-enduro bikes, instead of the normally needed shuttle to session your favourite tracks, you have your own built-in engine to assist you to the top. On downhills, it still feels like a normal bike, agile due to its perfectly tuned MTB geometry, but more planted because of the higher weight. All in all, it’s a super fun bike with a clear focus on trail riding. But the last few years have […]
