On Thursday, February 1st a vernissage with Chase participation took place in Vienna in the Taborstraße near the Augarten.

Christoph Buchegger and Rüdiger Suppin had designed an ingenious bicycle frame out of paper and old surfboard masts and built it completely by themselves.

The result was a carbon bike with one gear, a single speed that weighs exactly 6.66kg. To top it off, they equipped the bike with our Chase wheels. It was a great evening with many interested visitors who had come to the project presentation full of anticipation.

With a sensational time of 1:05;45 minutes (almost 55 km/h average) Felix crowns himself after winning the title several times in the 4000m single pursuit for the first time also in the 1000m single time trial to the state champion in the overall class. Included: the Chase sub-100g Extensions!

After the absence for day 2 of the short-term championships and the Olympic sprint, the big coup was achieved by winning the Keirin again! With a very good tactical performance Felix defeated the other five finalists and currently holds four of the possible eight state championship titles on the track.

In cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Transport, Innovation and Technology bmvit, Chase was a guest at the lange Macht der Forschung 2018 on 13 March 2018 in Vienna.

There, scientists tried in a simplified way to make their latest findings easily understandable for the research of tomorrow.

Peter and Felix were invited to an interview in which they reported how they came up with their own start-up Chase. How they can realize themselves and manufacture carbon components in their own production facilities with all their strength and innovative spirit. In cooperation with FFG, we were selected in advance as the most innovative start-up and presented in an FFG advertising campaign.

After the interview on stage in the 1st district, visitors could get to know carbon parts and the company philosophy at the Chase booth. It was pleasing that many open and interested visitors passed by the stand on this summer evening.


Felix makes it to the U23 standings even on gold. We congratulate him most sincerely on this overall success.

Mit einem starken Auftritt hat Felix Ritzinger die Querfeldein Saison beendet und konzentriert sich ab sofort vermehrt auf die Strasse!

Our athlete Manfred Zöger already uses our newest product – the Chase Carbon seatposts – for test runs. He is checking them in various conditions. After being tested in the lab, Manfred uses them under real strains for different cross-races.

In the betting game of the MTB-news.de the results of the UCI XC Worldcup 2017 were to be estimated in advance. There were 7 events, where you had to guess as correctly as possible the cyclists on the winner’s podium and the winners. The overall winner of the season’s betting game gets a Scott Spark 940. At this amount of participants, the chances to win are not high.

But Manfred won even though  – he collected under the nickname mani161699 352 points und won the Scott Bike.

Receiving his prize personally, he went to Garching near Munich in Germany. For the last 3 competitions Manfred started to use an Excel File in order to have the best overview for his betting. “The betting simply is fun”, he commented on that.

After a short guidance tour through the Scott site in Germany and a short introduction of the Spark 940, Manfred went on the trails in the North of Munich with two Scott employees. Of course, the new bike has to be tested and cycled.
