Last month, Stromer announced that their new model will be equipped with a frame-integrated ABS. News? Not for us and our fans as the Trefecta RDR has been available with the fully integrated Blubrake ABS system inside the frame since the beginning of this year!
Surveys show that 58% of the accidents involving e-bikes happen during braking and 24% are related to braking. 39% of fall events are caused by the front wheel lock up, 25% by a loss of balance. Blubrake ABS drastically reduces the risk of front wheel lock-up and rear wheel lift-off and guarantees a safer cycling experience. A cutting edge innovation between Blubrake and Trefecta which was co-developed specifically for our eBikes during 2018 and 2019 for the 2020 model year.
More value for money
So why is it news now that Stromer offers it and is the media reporting that it is the first speed pedelec with an integrated ABS system? Did they not pay attention when we introduced the Trefecta RDR? The explanation is simple; Stromer has a bigger marketing budget and therefore a greater reach in connecting with media and the consumer. Where we as Trefecta mainly spend our money on innovations and the quality of our bicycles, Stromer puts that part of its budget into marketing.
Does that make a Stromer an inferior bike? Not for us to say, but if we compare the Stromer ST5 ABS with the Trefecta RDR with ABS, the differences are obvious and the full option Trefecta RDR with ABS for €12’200 offers a lot better value for money than the Stromer ST5 ABS.
The Stromer ST5 ABS is scheduled for launch in June 2021, but why wait when you can already drive a Trefecta RDR? Contact us for more information about the Trefecta RDR and we would be more then happy to assist you in choosing the perfect Trefecta RDR for you.
