7 tips for staying safe on the road with your FLYER e-bike.

As safety is of particular importance when using an e-bike in traffic, we would like to give you 7 tips for riding your e-bike safely based on the recommendations of the Swiss Office for Accident Prevention (bfu).

Seven safety tips for en route.

  • Select an e-bike with pedal assist adapted to your own riding ability. Your FLYER dealer will be happy to advise you.
  • Due to the higher speed, breaking distances are longer with an e-bike, especially if you are transporting children, which increases the weight.
  • Other road users are mostly not used to fast e-bikes and often underestimate them. It is always good to check one more time before turning or overtaking.
  • Always wear a bicycle helmet to protect your head. 
  • Use your light when riding, even during the day, to make sure that other road users can see you.
  • We recommend that you wear reflective clothing at night, in particular, and at dusk. 
  • We recommend that you attend a riding safety course to learn the basics of safe riding and to practise them with others. FLYER offers regular riding safety courses. The dates are always announced at the beginning of the year.

Gift vouchers for the FLYER safe riding course are also available within Switzerland (e.g. as a Christmas present). It is easy to order the voucher by e-mail from The voucher and the invoice will be sent to your home address within one week.
