Quality Reviews

Our experienced team tests the most exciting urban bikes and urban mobility products for each issue. We write honest and detailed reviews to help you make well-informed buying decisions.

Riding time is living time

The topic of future mobility is often reduced to a rational and functional topic. For us, it’s different. We combine hard facts with emotion: adventure, experience and fun as integral parts of your everyday life.

Inspiring Essays

Biking is so much more than riding your bicycle. We want to show you the sides of it that inspire you to head off into new adventures and perhaps get you to think.


We have made it our aim to transform cities into something more livable. We want to clear up misconceptions and spread excitement and inspiration instead. We want to present you with solutions and alternatives. You have a central role in this.

Full of Surprises

We love variety as much as you do. That's why you want to continue surprising and inspiring you. Issue after issue, year after year. Are you ready?
