Design & Engineering
“Quality creates sustainability.”Andreas Krause, Head of Technical Development
“If we try a new design and it’s not a vast improvement over what currently exists, we do not produce it”Franc Arnold, CEO
“Good design does not stand alone. At Ergon, design is shaped by ergonomics.”Isabell Jusek, Industrial Design
Our Designers in the Third Development Stage
Ergon designers are also cyclists; they test new concepts and ideas where they should be tested on roadways, trails and bike parks.
Highly complex design and an intuitive approach merge into one product.
A synonym for diligence, character, enthusiasm, precision, passion and reliability.
Ergon has a strong German network of professionals who specialize in product material, research, production, and testing.
- Materials Manufacturer for Bio-leather, Compounds, Protectors and TPEs
- Development Partners
- Partner for Research in the fields of Ergonomics, Materials and Construction
- Laboratory that performs extreme tests on all Ergon products
A fascinating diversity of materials.
Examination of Purity
All materials are tested for toxic and impure substances. Materials used by Ergon meet the highest German government food and child toy safety standards.
Mechanical stress test
Products are tested for tensile strength, compression, and repetitive shock load.
Deterioration and the life-span of Ergon products are tested to specific in-house standards.
Different kinds of environmental exposures are recreated in a 4 year simulation.
There is no better way to test products than the real-life usage under extreme conditions.
