European countries are gradually “unblocking”, and foreigners who are worried about the safety of going out have rushed to buy bicycles and other means of transportation. Chinese bicycles have become popular in Europe overnight.

Bicycles suddenly became a hot online celebrity product. E-commerce platforms and major offline entities were all snapped up. On the weekend, I went to a circle of sports monopoly and found that there were only mountain bikes with a unit price of more than 5,000 yuan left in the bicycle area. The rest… are sold out!

And there are not many non-motorized vehicle lanes in our local area, so there are relatively few bicycles, and it has never been so popular, so where do the cars go?

The sales of bicycles and electric vehicles on a cross-border e-commerce platform have risen sharply. The sales of bicycles in the Spanish market have soared by 22 times, and the sales in Italy and the United Kingdom have also increased by about 4 times. In Russia, bicycle sales in May were 60 times higher than in the same period last year. The factory is urgently recruiting workers and working overtime 24 hours a day. The supply is still in short supply. After the order has been placed for a month, some bicycle manufacturers are already planning to expand their factories and increase production lines.

Bicycles have become the safest means of transportation during the epidemic?

01 The main reasons for the surge in exports

Affected by the epidemic, many countries and regions have temporarily suspended public transportation, and bicycle travel has become an important mode of travel. At the same time, due to the increase in time at home, overseas people have a strong demand for fitness, which has increased the demand for fitness bicycles and children’s bicycles. In addition, some countries have subsidized people’s purchase of bicycles, which has further strengthened the demand for bicycles in overseas markets.

But suppliers will also be worried, because of the sudden surge in orders, it seems that sales will be relatively low before and after Double Eleven, and it is unknown how the situation will go down.

There are also factory shipments. Once the inventory is depleted, it will take at least three months before the goods are available. After receiving an overseas order, if it cannot be delivered on time, it will face the risk of default.

Electric bicycle refers to a two-wheeled vehicle that uses a battery as an auxiliary energy source and adds a pedal power system to increase the torque, thereby assisting the rider to ride.


The EU has always been one of the main export destinations for China’s electric bicycles, and sales have been growing rapidly.

In the EU, electric bicycles are called Electric Bicycles, and they are divided into two categories according to the way they are used.

Pedelecs, no handlebars, motor assist has to step in after pedaling
E-Bike, with a handlebar, you can choose to keep your feet still and drive the bike entirely by the handlebar, or you can choose to get motor assistance by pedaling
And the parameters of electric bicycles are strictly defined as

The maximum continuous output power of the motor is 250W
When the speed reaches 25km/h, the motor current will be disconnected and no more power will be provided

Many cars sold in Europe are like this, mainly practical.

Bicycles exported to EU countries need to apply for CE certification. On July 22, 2006, the four CEN bicycle safety standards promulgated by the European Commission for Standardization: EN14764 “city bikes and touring bikes”, EN14766 “mountain bikes”, EN14781 “race bikes”, and EN14782 “bicycle parts and vehicle hangers” have been It came into effect on December 1, 2006.

According to the EU Safety Directive 2001/95/EC statement, manufacturers must provide safe products to the market. The EU Safety Directive also stipulates that a product is presumed to be safe if it is produced by the manufacturer using EU standards and its safety performance level is covered by those standards. CEN recommends that manufacturers conduct testing of the new standard through testing agencies. A few days ago, some export companies were required to provide corresponding test reports when shipping.

Relatively speaking, the United States is not as detailed as Europe’s regulations, and the names are much more arbitrary. There are ebike, electric bike, and e-bike. The popularity of electric bicycles is also later than that in Europe, and the degree is lower, and the laws of various states in the United States stipulate Not the same. For example, New York banned electric bicycles from the road two years ago. The general rule is

The maximum continuous output power of the motor is 750W
The fastest speed is 20mile/h, which is almost 32km/h

Maybe this is the federation

Thirteen states (Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, Utah, Washington, D.C., Wyoming) took the lead in implementing the Class 1, 2, and 3 grading system. The regulations for different levels of electric bicycles differ as follows:

Class 1: Only in assist mode, the speed is limited to 20mile/h, when the motor is powered off at this speed, it stops providing assist
Class 2: There is a turning handle, which is equivalent to one more choice, the others are the same as class 1
Class 3: Only the assist mode, but the speed limit is 28mile/h, which is 40% higher than the maximum speed limit of the previous two classes
In fact, the sales of electric bicycles in the United States are growing very fast, with sales increasing by more than 80% from 2017 to 2018.

Amazon Requirements: General Certificate of Conformity (GCC I536I876OO3) for all electric bicycles and compliance with the following regulations and testing standards: 1. 16CFR Part 1512 (bicycle requirements); and 2. ANSI/CAN/UL 2849 (electric Standard for Bicycle Electrical Systems); or 3. ANSI/CAN/UL 2272 (Standard for Electrical Systems of Personal Electric Cycling Vehicles); or 4. EN 15194 (European Standard for Electric Bicycle Safety)
  2. The evaluation requirements of the UL2849 standard for products are as follows: 1. Charger 2. Shell 3. Battery pack and BMS4. Functional safety and failure analysis 5. Motor and controller
  3. Who must provide the GCC declaration? All Importers and Native American Manufacturers. Importers and local manufacturers should submit samples to accredited third-party laboratories to test their products for compliance with relevant safety regulations.
