The event around the comparison and testing of e-bikes, e-mountain bikes and speed pedelecs. Visitors make thousands of test rides during each edition on large indoor bicycle test tracks. More than 40 e-bike brands take part in the E-bike Challenge.
On the 18th and 19th of February 2017, the first edition of E-bike Challenge took place in Flanders Expo in Ghent (Belgium), under the banner of ‘Hicle Outdoor’, together with Fiets en Wandelbeurs and Mount Expo. This total event attracted 15,532 visitors. The fifth edition was scheduled for 1-2 May, but was cancelled due to the corona crisis. In 2022, a new edition is scheduled, on 19 & 20 February.
The first E-bike Challenge test event in the USA was held at the Minneapolis Convention Center on March 23–24, 2019. It was deemed a success with 2,800 attendees.
The second edition has been rescheduled due to the corona crisis to 2-3 April 2022. Location will be again the Minneapolis Convention Centre.
Visitors will be able to try out a wide range of well-known brands of electric bicycles, speed pedelecs and e-mountain bikes on large and challenging indoor test tracks. Exhibitors and experts will be there to answer any questions. Also, lectures and workshops inform visitors about the ins and outs of e-biking.
Visitors of E-bike Challenge are a 100% target group. They come to the ‘Challenge’ because they orientate themselves on the purchase of an e-bike. The USA as well as Belgium are real growth markets for e-bikes and the event offers bicycle brands an ideal opportunity to reach the right audience.
The stands of the exhibitors directly adjoin the bicycle test track (e-bike, e-mountain bike and speed pedelec) so visitors can get information about the models and immediately try out one or several e-bikes.
