Engineering in Germany
Our development department consists of six engineers and one product designer. For more than ten years, we have been developing high-end software products such as Catia V5, SolidWorks or ANSYS for the automotive industry, medical technology and mechanical engineering. Our know-how is for example in premium vehicles from Audi and BMW, in automation systems from Jenoptik or in gas turbine maintenance systems from Siemens.
Since July 2013, we have focused on our own product, the cyfly-Antrieb® and the Möve franklin® bicycle. We worked together with many specialists from other fields. Schaeffler Technologies has been supporting us for over three years in designing and optimizing our bearings. Another long-term development partner is Mitec AG from Eisenach. Their gear specialists have supported us in the optimization of gear components as well as in the selection of materials for series production.
Other colleagues, such as the forging specialists Radebeul or colleagues from Kappstein, have used their know-how to provide innovative ideas and perfect series components.
Made and tested in Germany
In addition to product development, our team also consists of experienced bicycle mechanics, professional cyclists, bike fitter and airbrush artists. This enables us to map the process from the idea to the finished product. Short communication channels, many years of experience and modern machinery are the keys to successful implementation.
With our love of precision we produce first class products with soul - Made in Germany. In addition to the internal quality tests carried out by us, such as a dynamic endurance test (300 watts input power over 20,000 km) on the test bench we have developed as well as real journeys under adverse conditions, we also work together with external partners such as the renowned Zedler Institute.
For more than 20 years, the institute has been producing bicycle surveys for insurers, lawyers, cyclists and private individuals. The founder of the institute Dipl.-Ing. Dirk Zedler is Germany's first publicly appointed and sworn expert for bicycles and electric bicycles (IHK Stuttgart). In the Zedler tests, our cyfly, frame, fork and bag holder components received the internationally recognized seal of quality.
"POESIE DES SAUSENS"
Mobilität Ein deutscher Fahrradhersteller hat einen neuartigen Pedalantrieb entwickelt. Der sieht merkwürdig aus - macht aber tatsächlich schneller.
Dass die einfachste mechanische Konstruktion häufig auch die beste ist, wird kaum ein Ingenieur bezweifeln. Als Beispiel mag der Tretmachanismus des Fahrrads dienen: zwei Kurbeln an einer Welle - seit anderthalb Jahrhunderten bewährt. Dieses Prinzip infrage zu stellen erscheint köhn - und die Alternative, mit der sich der Fahrradhersteller Möve nun in den Handel wagt, allemal komplex:`` >>> zum gesamten Artikel
STRAVA KOM HUNTING WITH CYFLY DRIVE
Strava is one of the most popular cycling apps worldwide. The special feature of this app is that you can create special segments and then compare with all cyclists who have ever passed this segment with Strava.
The King of Mountain (KOM) is the winner of this segment. A very interesting segment for us was the steepest road in Germany in Deesbach. There we drove a distance of 375m in 102 seconds with our 13 kg cyfly-Crosser, one of our prototypes from 2016, with an average gradient of 17.2%. That equates to an additional 78 kg for an average weight of 557 watts.

Our idea to make the mechanical bicycle drive noticeably more efficient has inspired numerous strong partners from industry and research. Only in co-development with them we could make cyflywhat it is today: high technology from Germany for a global market. We thank all those who have believed in us for the past three years!
the cyfly - COOPERATION PARTNERS
The MITEC Automotive AG from Eisenach is one of the world's leading companies for automotive transmission technology. Since 2014, they supports us as a strategic partner in prototype production and in the future production of cyfly components in the highest precision.
Since 2013, we have been working together with Schaeffler Technologie AG on developments in the sector of deep groove ball bearings. In the future, we will expand our cooperation with Schaeffler.
The development cooperation between Kappstein and MÖVE has existed for more than 3 years. Kappstein is a premium manufacturer of bicycle components and manufactures the cyfly chainring for MÖVE.
Thanks to our research collaboration with FH Schmalkalden, we will be able to produce cyfly components made of materials such as carbon or natural fibers in Germany using 3D printing technology.
With the Faculty of Biomechanics of the University of Leipzig, we are researching the positive effects of the cyfly drive on the movement sequence during cycling.
The drop forging specialist is committed to the high-performance material lightweight aluminum 7070. The forming technique manufactures high quality drive components such as e.g. the cyfly crank.
STRAVA KOM- HUNTING MIT CYFLY- ANTRIEB
Strava ist eine der bekanntesten Radfahr-Apps weltweit. Das Besondere an dieser App ist es, dass man spezielle Segmente anlegen und sich danach mit allen Radfahrern die jemals dieses Segment mit Strava passiert haben, vergleichen kann.
Der King of Mountain (KOM) ist der Gewinner dieses Segments. Ein für uns sehr interessantes Segment war dabei die steilste Straße Deutschlands in Deesbach. Dort sind wir mit unserem 13 kg cyfly-Crosser, einem unserer Prototypen aus dem Jahr 2016, bei einer Steigung von durchschnittlich 17,2 % , eine Strecke von 375m in 102 Sekunden gefahren. Das entspricht bei einem Fahrergewicht von zusätzlichen 78 kg einer durchschnittlichen Leistung von 557 Watt.
