Latvia represented at the largest cycling industry exhibition in Germany
Latvian bicycle manufacturer Ērenpreiss takes part at the Europe’s largest bicycle exhibition “Eurobike 2015” in Friedrichshafen, Germany and presents its new bicycles.
Exhibition “Eurobike 2015” – the largest cycling industry event in the world, where the most notable professionals of the industry meet each year in order to present their work and newest creations, as well as to improve and develop their business opportunities. The exhibition takes place in Friedrichshafen, in the south of Germany, from 26 to 29 August, where a large former aviation complex with 12 halls and a territory of 100 000 m2 is arranged for the purposes of an exhibition hall. The exhibition has more than 1,500 participants and it is visited by more than 50,000 people over four days.
“We have worked hard and created new bicycle models, which we are also pleased to present to our current, as well as prospective European cooperation partners. We are taking part in the exhibition for the fourth year, and we have placed the spotlight on our new Ērenpreiss “birds of the city” – the city bicycles “Sparrow” and the colourful women’s bicycles “Finch”, the design of which has been praised by those interested,” acknowledges Toms Ērenpreiss, Manager of Ērenpreiss.
As with every year, the Eurobike exhibition is a place, where, similarly to car shows, the newest technologies and innovations in bicycle design are presented. “Eurobike is able to solve various technological, as well as conceptual issues. It can be seen that the cycling industry altogether is giving more attention to bicycle functionality – how to use them in everyday life, thus replacing other means of transportation,” tells Toms Ērenpreiss.
During the exhibition there was also a presentation of an electrical bicycle that can develop a speed that no other bicycle of such a type has reached before – 75 km/h.
“It can also be clearly observed that certain functional design solutions are given more attention, for example, the so-called belt-drive system is getting more popular among bicycle manufacturers instead of the traditional bicycle chain,” Toms Ērenpreiss shares his impressions.
