Design & Engineering

  • “Quality creates sustainability.”

    Andreas Krause, Head of Technical Development
  • “If we try a new design and it’s not a vast improvement over what currently exists, we do not produce it.”

    Franc Arnold, CEO
  • “Good design does not stand alone. At Ergon, design is shaped by ergonomics.”

    Isabell Jusek, Industrial Design

Our Designers in the Third Development Stage

Ergon designers are also cyclists; they test new concepts and ideas where they should be tested on roadways, trails and bike parks.


Highly complex design and an intuitive approach merge into one product.

  • Insights

  • Molding

    Foam is milled in-house to examine various prototype forms.

  • Line Management

    The evolutionary, precise, and constructive examination process.

  • Texture

    3D models produce the first prototypes.

  • Brainstorm

    Sketches of future concepts determine which product designs to pursue.

  • Combination

    The merging of various raw materials into one working component.

  • Simulation

    Examination and virtual stress testing of new innovative designs.

  • Experiment

    Unique concepts and designs through the use of innovative materials.

German Innovation

A synonym for diligence, character, enthusiasm, precision, passion and reliability.

Ergon has a strong German network of professionals who specialize in product material, research, production, and testing.

The Network

  • Materials Manufacturer for Bio-leather, Compounds, Protectors and TPEs
  • Development Partners
  • Partner for Research in the fields of Ergonomics, Materials and Construction
  • Laboratory that performs extreme tests on all Ergon products

  • Ergon Materials

    A fascinating diversity of materials.

  • Die einzelnen Komponenten und Materialien eines GP1 BioKork Griffs.
  • Die einzelnen Komponenten und Materialien eines SM3 Comp Sattels.
  • Die einzelnen Komponenten und Materialien eines BE3 Enduro Rucksackes.

Lab Tests

  • Examination of Purity

    All materials are tested for toxic and impure substances. Materials used by Ergon meet the highest German government food and child toy safety standards.

  • Mechanical stress test

    Products are tested for tensile strength, compression, and repetitive shock load.

  • Deterioration Test

    Deterioration and the life-span of Ergon products are tested to specific in-house standards.

  • Environmental Simulation

    Different kinds of environmental exposures are recreated in a 4 year simulation.

Field Tests

There is no better way to test products than the real-life usage under extreme conditions.
