    The Swiss e-bike manufacturer has received the highest praise from the Red Dot jury for its ST5 Pinion electric bike

    Swiss electric bike manufacturer Stromer’s new ST5 Pinion e-bike has received Red Dot’s highest accolade from design experts, The Best of the Best Award, highlighting its outstanding product design and quality to the world.

    This is not the first time Stromer has received a product design award of this calibre, last year its flagship ST7 received the same award, marking a successful few years for its e-bike product designs.

    Stromer ST5 Pinion, winner of Red Dot Best of the Best Award

    Stromer’s ST5 Pinion features an aluminium frame and fork, an 850W hub motor, and Pinion’s C1.9 Smart Shift internal gear system. It uses a Gates carbon belt instead of a chain, which is rare for a multi-gear e-bike. It also features Stromer’s state-of-the-art anti-lock braking system, which was developed in conjunction with Blubrake and TRP.

    Stromer’s latest award-winning model is a class 3 pedelec with a maximum assist speed of 45km/h and a range of up to 180km on a full charge. It is also equipped with a Pinion C1.9 drivetrain that provides riders with nine gears and can shift smoothly and silently, whether they are pedalling or standing still. Finally, it offers users an extra level of safety with Bluetooth connectivity.

Accessories (bags, helmets, batteries, etc.) can be delivered directly to the addresses of customers.

    With the click-and-collect model, Stromer offers customers the highest level of convenience and at the same time expands the brand’s reach,” says the MyStromer headquarters from Oberwangen near Bern, Switzerland.

    Digitalisation and customer needs are constantly changing, which is why we are also adapting our sales channels accordingly,” explains MyStromer Co-CEO Tomi Viiala about this new sales channel, “our retail partners remain of central importance for our business with this click-and-collect solution and our online customers benefit from personal dealer contact. With the online shop on our website, we expect to be able to attract new customers to our retail partners”.

  4. Stromer joins the ‘Coalition for Cyclist Safety’ to create safer roads for all users

    Comments Off on Stromer joins the ‘Coalition for Cyclist Safety’ to create safer roads for all users

    Bicycling fatalities are on the rise. Leading innovators in the automotive, cycling, and technology industries have come together to establish a new coalition that’s committed to creating safer roads, for all users, through emerging C-V2X technology.

    Stromer, the market and innovation leader in the field of Class 3 e-bikes, is proud to join the new Coalition for Cyclist Safety (C4CS) to help enable safer cycling on North American roads.

    Whether for recreation or mobility, cycling provides numerous environmental, economic, and health benefits. Many people now rely on biking as their primary mode of transportation. Yet, the rise in cycling’s popularity also coincides with an increase in fatalities from traffic accidents involving cyclists. According to a recent report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, from 2011 to 2020, bicyclist and other cyclist fatalities increased by 38 percent, from 682 in 2011 to 938 in 2020.

    The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) is committed to reducing deaths and serious injuries on the nation’s roadways to the only acceptable number: zero. A powerful tool for achieving this ambitious, long-term goal is cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology, a form of communication tech that is already used throughout the automotive industry.

    “The safety of our Stromer riders is a top priority, as they travel an average of 30 km [19 miles] on the road every day. Our aim is to ensure that they not only get from A to B efficiently, but also safely,” says Tomi Viiala, co-CEO of myStromer AG. “That is why we have been developing V2X technology for some time now. This intention is one of the reasons why we are joining the Coalition for Cyclist Safety to work with the automotive industry to achieve a higher standard of safety for cyclists.”

    Cross-Industry Coordination

    Cycling safety cannot be achieved by one company alone—it requires the cooperation of the automotive, the cycling, and the tech industries, along with policy makers and advocacy groups, all working together toward the same goal. Traditionally, these industry sectors had little or no commonalities. But now, the C4CS provides a platform for mutual understanding on advocacy, cooperation, alignment, and exchange. The coalition is an important step in creating a comprehensive V2X communication ecosystem to improve cyclist safety. 

    The diverse array of partners includes:

    • Automotive: Audi, Cariad (Volkswagen)
    • Cycling: Accell Group, AT-Zweirad, Bosch, BMC, Gazelle, Shimano, Stromer, Trek
    • V2X Technology: Autotalks, Commsignia, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Spoke Safety
    • Telecommunication: Deutsche Telekom, Telus

    Saving Lives with Connectivity

    C-V2X technology can save lives by enabling vehicles to communicate with each other, with roadside infrastructure, and with other road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. It works through a V2X chipset, software stack, and onboard unit within a vehicle, which then connects via a mobile network or directly to the corresponding system on a bicycle. This allows the car to digitally “see” a bicycle that also has the technology, and activate a timely safety alert to help avoid a collision.

    C-V2X technology has the potential to help decrease the more than 130,000 injuries (according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control) suffered by cyclists annually on U.S. roadways.

    “As a premium manufacturer, we are committed to supporting new safety-relevant developments and integrating them into our platform without delay. We are also able to integrate new technologies into our bikes quickly and easily, as we are one of the few manufacturers to develop and produce electronics and mechanics entirely in-house,” says Stromer co-CEO Karl Ludwig Kley. 

    The coalition will begin this initiative in the United States and Canada, with the goal of expanding to Europe and other regions of the world.

    Comments Off on Stromer’s subsidiary brand announces Kross as a new production partner

    Speed pedelec brand Stromer welcomes a new manufacturer on board to meet increasing demand for Deskinio’s premium urban bikes.

    Spanish company Deskinio was added to Stromer’s portfolio in 2021, and has had significant growth since then, especially in Germany. The brand is expecting a positive 2024, and to facilitate further growth it has recently changed its assembly and painting site from Italy, to Kross’ Polish production centre, with its R&D department remaining at its headquarters in Granada, Spain.

    Kross’ bicycle production history

    Over thirty years Kross has developed from a small company to one of the largest bicycle manufacturers in Poland, with an annual production capacity of 500,000 bikes. Its cutting-edge facility is located in Przasnysz, Poland and has a dedicated R&D team, in-house testing lab, three production lines, carbon frame production, and automated painting, which enable Kross to make bikes from initial design to final product.

    A positive outlook from management

    Morten Kristiansen, Managing Director of Desiknio, has said the following on the new partnership :

    “For Desiknio, market leader in high-quality urban mobility solutions, quality and attention to detail are crucial. Our customers expect only the best from Desiknio – and with Kross we have one Partner who embodies an equal level of craftsmanship and quality in what they do.”

    Stromer’s Co-CEO Tomi Viiala has said:

    “We are pleased to have Kross as our new assembly partner for Desiknio. When searching, it was important for us to find a European assembly partner with a lot of knowledge and experience in assembly and painting of bicycles. With Kross we have the right partner for our growth plans.”

    Kross’ VP, Kacper Sosnowski is also very positive about this new venture:

    “We are looking forward to this collaboration. It is part of Kross’ strategy to offer our experience, product knowledge and resources to carefully selected partners. We are proud to be able to meet the growing demand for Desiknio bikes with our knowledge and capacity. I am convinced that the production location Europe is important in the purchasing process for end customers. Our location helps to shorten lead times and also has a positive impact on the CO2 footprint. Together with Desiknio, we are convinced that assembly in our factory is just a first step in our collaboration.”

  6. Stromer achieves sustainable growth in 2023, despite cycling industry headwinds

    Comments Off on Stromer achieves sustainable growth in 2023, despite cycling industry headwinds

    Against the prevailing challenges in the bicycle industry, the current financial year has been profitable for myStromer AG, which achieved consolidated growth of over 10 percent.

    Despite overall stagnant or declining markets in Europe, myStromer AG, the parent company of the two premium e-bike brands Stromer and Desiknio, was able to buck the general trend and continue to expand its market shares in the Netherlands and Belgium, and secure its market leadership. In the challenging e-bike market in the United States, the company achieved double-digit growth.

    The company is also preparing itself for growth by strengthening its internal development skills: The number of employees has risen globally to a total of 180 people. A majority of the personnel growth is accounted for by the 25-strong digital hub in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, which is responsible for promoting new developments in the area of the “digital experience”.

    Highlights of 2023 included the introduction of the first drivable prototype with a solid- state ceramic battery for e-bikes at the IAA mobility trade fair as well as the multi-year collaboration with Alinghi Red Bull Racing and the successful launch of two Alinghi Red Bull Racing Special Edition Stromer models.

    With more than 109 million commuter kilometers (67 million miles) traveled with Stromer bikes, the connected Stromer Community was able to save more than twenty thousand metric tons of CO2, which is the equivalent of more than ten thousand round trip flights from London to New York. A substantial contribution to a more sustainable mobility future.

    “The bicycle industry had a much harder time last year than in the boom years during and after the coronavirus. That just amplifies our excitement about the growth we achieved in our core markets. And at this time in particular it is essential that we continue to invest in innovation and growth to improve our market position,” states Co-CEO Dr. Karl Ludwig Kley.

    Forecast 2024
    The coming year will also be an exciting one: myStromer will be presenting a new category of Stromer bikes at the Eurobike 2024 and will unveil further innovations in the course of the year. Continuing to promote the mobility transformation remains the primary goal of Stromer for the coming year. But 2024 will also be marked by innovation development and the expansion of innovation leadership.

    Co-CEO Tomi Viiala is confident: “2024 will remain a difficult year for the industry—and yet we have a positive outlook for the new year. We will surprise the market with a number of innovations. We also believe that the emerging mobility transformation will have a positive effect on the e-bike and S-Pedelec market. We are promoting this transformation with financing solutions and leasing offers and corresponding products that make traffic easier in your day-to-day life.”
