Since its launch at the Eurobike 2012, the Ergon eRocker has gained a lot of interest by e-Bike manufacturers and special interest media and on top was awarded with the prestigious red dot design award. The Ergon eRocker grip will be available for the AEG e-bike system as early as July 2013. All components are designed and produced in Germany.
In general this unit will be available for all interested e-bike and drive system manufacturers for the model year 2015. Benchmark Drives will be in charge of all technical adaptions and has exclusive distribution rights under the direction of Horst Walter. "The cooperation between Benchmark Drives and Ergon has worked very well since the first minute. Both company cultures and the people behind them are on the same page. Together we are moving forward quickly. That is fun and efficient", says Ergon CEO Franc Arnold about this cooperation.
