Even though it sounds trivial, it’s (unfortunately) true: tight is followed by broken. It is therefore advisable and may be accident-avoiding to determine reasonable torque values and assembly instructions for component groups.
We have tried and tested test rhythms for years, also and in particular for high-end products made of aluminium and carbon. Because precision and compatibility directly affect rider satisfaction and failure prevention. Besides the quality assurance tests, our portfolio also includes further tests in the field of accuracy, coating tests and various functional tests.
Insufficient precision and the combinations of incompatible components can have devastating consequences, not only for cyclists and e-bike riders in accidents, but also for you as manufacturer when it comes to product liability.
We therefore determine realistic torque values on the bicycle component itself and give experience-based advice on the combinations to be avoided.
The very important first step in view of minimizing component failure in operation: determination of reasonable torque values and assembly instructions for component groups, instead of relying upon the specifications of the screw manufacturers. At Zedler-Institut we have tried and tested test rhythms for years, in particular for highly sensitive high-end aluminium products and for carbon products in general.
In case of inquiries about coating and functional tests, please contact us.
We determine realistic torque values and give advice about unsuitable combinations. This avoids failures and increases the fun during riding.
Thanks to years of experience in testing and actively cycling, we ensure tried and tested test rhythms – for carbon parts as well as for (high-)end aluminium parts.
We do not only offer the determination of torque values, but also measurements in the field of fit and precision as well as coating tests and functional tests.
