DEVELOPMENT & DESIGN
Atera Carrier Systems.
When form follows function.
Design is much more than just visual appearance. In the beginning there is a demand and a product idea. Market behaviour, consumers, new materials and environmental aspects need to be researched and evaluated.
It is a long way from the first design sketch until the final series product. User comfort, functionality, design and quality are currently the center of this development..
In the process, designers and engineers use state of the art 3D CAD constructions and the Finite- Element- Method (FEM) for the strength calculation.
Before the finished product is being released, it needs to pass extreme tests and conditions.
What will the future look like? Which sport equipment will we use in 5 or 10 years? Are we still going to travel by car?
Will there still be bikes as we know them today?
Requirements and demand are constantly changing.
A few years ago, we could not foresee the strong development of e-bikes and thus, demand for carrier system in this area were still dreams of the future. Today, Atera is the company with the worldwide widest range of products for e-bike carriers.
