Schmolke Carbon TLO handlears – the stiffest and lightest
This is the conclusion of an independent test on BIKERUMOR.COM in which absolute stiffness and also stiffness related to weight (STW ratio) have been measured. Our FullOver handlebar takes first place in this important category. For more details click here!
Test victory for Schmolke seat posts
The german cycling magazine ‘RennRad’ published in its current issue (06/2012) a test of 13 comfort seat posts. Thanks to their by far highest flexing characteristics (50Nm, 53 Nm respectively) and low weight, Schmolke’s TLO and SL seat post landed on top position.

Everything has been put to the acid test.
Before we start production we test everything on our purpose-built test-bench. Our first goal is to meet the new DIN EN 14781 and 14766 requirements. On top of that we punish the parts with our own, even tougher tests. Under loads of up to 150kg the ends of the handelbars are made to flex some 25mm! Still they survive. We understand our work as an ongoing development, even when our seatposts and handlebars are already made in batches we continue testing. We are still on the quest for less weight and more durability.
