The company STEVENS Bikes from Hamburg, one of the leading bicycle manufacturers in Germany, relies on our QUICKLOC® Light quick-release fasteners during the production of their e-bike E-Cayolle.

Initial situation

Reliable joining technology to fasten the battery cover

The STEVENS e-bike model E-Cayolle impresses with its sporty design and high technological performance. With less than 22 kg, the E-Cayolle is the lightweight among the STEVENS e-hardtails. The electric support Bosch Performance Line CX with up to 75 Newton meters of torque, fed from the semi-integrated 500Wh PowerPack battery in the frame down tube, promise long tours over mountains, steep climbs or twisty trails.

In this context, the attachment of the new, frame-integrated battery compartment obviously needs a reliable joining tech­nology. In case of replacement or maintenance, the cover has to be opened and closed easily. The used joint should also absorb permanently the vibrations that might occur when using the e-bike.

This is how STEVENS Bike became aware of our QUICKLOC® Light quick-release fasteners.

Solution

QUICKLOC® Light quick-release fasteners

Quickly opened, quickly closed: the QUICKLOC® Light quick-release fasteners are perfect for components that are frequently used or maintained. Easy to assemble and even easier to use – multiple opening and closing is also possible with the QUICKLOC® quick-release fasteners.

Simply clip the receptacle into a rectangular hole. The bolt passes through a bore hole and is optionally locked with retaining washer in order to prevent loss. To lock the joint, gently press and turn it into the lock bottom. Thanks to the clever part geometry, it locks in and is then held in place without clearance. A simple quarter turn to the left or right opens the lock. The elastic part of the receptacle is stretched and the locking bolt released again.
