The e-bike has been established for a while and in recent years it has undergone a change of image from a luxury thing into a popular means of transportation. Even athletes favor the new trend. What does all this have to do with the DEW21 E – BIKE Festival presented by SHIMANO? Quite a lot due to the fact that the visitors of the largest European festival get to see new and exciting e-bike innovations from June 25th to April 27th 2021 in Dortmund. Using the “Discover e-mobility – The largest consumer test of e-bikes at the city center of Dortmund in 2021,” theme, the entire spectrum of e-mobility will be covered in just three days. As in the previous year, attendees can lend one more of over 1,000 test bikes for free. A new and crucial lending system makes the process of testing even easier and safer. Moreover, the SHIMANO test area at “Brüderweg” in front of the church “Reinoldikirche” will be given a new look that develops the area into an “active test center.” However, the e-mountain bike course will experience the most drastic change. In 2021, the new focus will definitely be on practicing the riding technique, because there is a high demand on operating and riding the bicycles. Apart from this, visitors can look forward to another highlight. Next to the “testing” topic, we will emphasis “services,” which covers the everyday things that are related to e-bikes. This will be customer-friendly presented in workshops, service contributions and tests. In Dortmund, all interests will be covered: From the right battery care, to legal matters, leasing offers, and insurances. More than 150 exhibitors will be showing their new products of the season. Whether cozy trekking e-bike, city e-bike, e-mountain bike, e-folding bike, e-transport bike, or sporty road bike, there will be the right concept for every requirement.
