Tested to the extreme

We push our bikes to the limit – and beyond – so they can handle what the city throws their way.

Tropical rainstorm proof¹

We subject our e-bikes to 39 litres of water every minute at extremely high water pressure to make sure their electric components remain safe and dry whatever the weather.

The industry standards in place to test e-bikes weren’t high enough. So we made our own standards.

Sahara-level heat. Only hotter²

We place our bikes’ components in a 70℃ heat chamber for 72 hours straight. That way we know they can cope on the hottest day of the year, wherever in the world that may be.

Higher standards meant creating much more extreme tests. So, we turned up the dial and started putting our bikes through the toughest conditions imaginable.

Sub-zero certified³

We place the bike frames – without any of the tech inside – in a -40℃ chamber for 72 hours. Once the ice has melted away, we test the frames to make sure they’re as
 strong as ever.

Built to ride on. And on⁴

So our bikes are prepared for any length of journey, we run them over 200 km of uneven terrain at 25 km/h. That’s Amsterdam to Brussels. Without a pit stop.

Sandstorm ready⁵

To make sure airborne particles won’t affect the performance of our bikes, we lock them in a chamber and create our own confined storm that weathers on for 8 hours.

By putting our bikes through such an extreme testing process, we know our bikes aren’t just built to survive the city – they’re built to master it.

S5 in dust chamber

Withstands extreme shocks⁶

Our e-bikes need to be able to handle the rough and tumble of a busy city. That’s why we strap them to a vibration plate at three different axes and subject them to extreme shocks that go on continuously for 36 hours.
