The pursuit of perfection
The almost 15-year evolutionary history of Siegfried served as inspiration for the super refined project. Enhancements to details in disciplines such as design standards, durability and suitability for everyday use have contributed to making Siegfried an icon. The pursuit of perfection is one of the most important driving forces, but every technical development must also be harmonised with the requirements of series production. Co-founder and Head of Product, Jörg Schindelhauer, explains:
"We wanted to overcome the limitations that could affect manufacturability, price or usability, so we created this super refined edition."
Every element of the bike was examined for optimisation potential without changing the characteristic features of the model. The aim was to make the bike more uncompromising, lighter and more exclusive. A group of people from the Schindelhauer product, design, workshop and marketing team took on the challenge over a period of two years. Specific knowledge and experience regarding product philosophy, material processing and component selection, which each team member was able to contribute to the evaluation of feasibility, were crucial to success.
