Trials Rider, Showman, Riding Skills Teacher and Developer.
After a successful career as a trials rider, Stefan travelled around the world with his Trials Shows, jumping around on many stages. In addition to that, he has always worked with rider groups by sharing his knowledge during ride workshops to improve the skills of the participants.
Stefan has always been open to new technologies.
As one of the first trials pros, he was open to pioneering acceptance for electric mountain bikes. Together with Bosch eBike Systems, he created the #uphillflow feeling, which is so obvious to anybody using an eMTB for the first time. This new discipline was established in between the traditional disciplines. There are a lot of technical developments around this new trend that aren't limited only to e-bike systems, which cause the bike's other components to undergo significant change. And because of new pedaling styles characteristic of e-biking – when electric assist only kicks in when pedaling, Miranda was the first company to respond to these unique demands of e-biking by creating shorter cranks for e-mountain bikes. Stefan is using these shorter cranks and is also helping to develop the software for using them efficiently in the woods!
