The Transfer and Start-up Center (TUGZ) at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg is dedicated to helping students and scientists successfully implement their start-up ideas. Urwahn Engineering GmbH is certainly one of the most remarkable startups that this program has produced. At the Saxony-Anhalt joint stand at HANNOVER MESSE 2022, those involved in the project are now presenting the world's first 3D-printed Urwahn Gravel E-Bike Waldwiesel.E.

Gravel bikes are trendy, e-bikes are trendy - so what could be more obvious than to combine the two? But not somehow, thought Ramon Thomas and Sebastian Meinecke. The previous bikes from Urwahn - recognized as a genuine manufacturer thanks to its own frame production - already attracted positive attention thanks to their extravagant looks, among other things. Parts of the distinctive frames of the Urwahn bikes are created using 3D metal printing. In this innovative way, the connecting pieces are manufactured before they are soldered together with other steel tubes to form the complete frame. The result is an organic-looking silhouette with smooth shapes and invisible tube transitions, as is otherwise more familiar from bikes with carbon frames.

At just 14.8 kilograms, the new Urwahn Gravel E-Bike Waldwiesel.E is one of the lightest Gravel E-Bikes on the market, not least thanks to hand-picked components, and has already been awarded the prestigious 3DPC Award 2021 for its innovative Softride technology in the rear triangle.
