maxon is further expanding its involvement in the sport of professional mountain biking. In addition to sponsoring the “Thömus maxon” elite team, the drive specialist is now sponsoring the junior team of Swiss bicycle manufacturer Thömus. With this move, the two companies are underscoring the importance of the next generation in sports as well as in business, and emphasizing their passion for technology, “Swissness”, and the sport of bike racing.
maxon is launching five new products at the upcoming SPS trade fair in Nuremberg. All products are designed with particularly efficient use of resources and compactness in mind. They include the ECX SPEED 8 motors with pin connection, the integrated ENX 32 MILE encoder for drives from the ECX flat motor series with 32 mm diameter, as well as the powerful IDX 56 and 70 industrial drives. Now there are even more technical solutions available for extremely compact and tight spaces.

This record-breaking weight is made possible by the small and efficient maxon BIKEDRIVE AIR drive in the extremely lightweight Thömus ultra-high modulus carbon frame.
maxon reaches a record-breaking year of revenue in 2021. Contributors included, a strong growth in Europe and Asia, numerous new products launched and incoming orders at an all-time high.
