AlterEgo Hardware

Innovative Industrial Solutions for Mobility on Two Wheels

AlterEgo Hardware (AEH) is a startup company founded by Alexander Hohenegger in 2014 and soon joined by a small group of very motivated people.
Based in Italy, AEH has a strong link with the rest of Europe and the U.S.

We originally developed some novel concepts and industrial solutions, securing various patents in-house. Later on, having acquired extensive know-how about intellectual property and industry expectations, and established sound relationships with the two-wheeler industry, we decided to open doors to promising ideas from outside and start a patent brokering activity. We are constantly looking for new technologies, which we carefully examine from a technological and economic standpoint with the aim to fully develop their potential and possibly sell to a relevant manufacturer or supplier in the bicycle and motorcycle industry.

Neutral Axis

Semi-floating disc brake caliper with two brake pads supports that are directly connected to the fork

Semi-floating disc brake caliper with two brake pads supports that are directly connected to the fork. This guarantees the perfect symmetry of the forces as they lie on the neutral axis, to the great advantage of the modulation and heat dissipation.

Ratio Zero Transmission

Welcome to the revolution in the drivetrain. A small and light single cog rear hub contains a continuously variable transmission with the same efficiency as a standard chain, about 98%.

MonoSpring Fork

The Monospring Fork (MSF) is a novel (patented) concept for the front suspension. The new height and width ratio determines the greater reactivity of the spring. This makes even the sportiest motorbike/bicycle more comfortable. Furthermore, the absence of internal springs dramatically reduces friction. All for a smoothness never experienced

MonoSplit Shock Absorber

The MonoSplit Unique suspension (MSU) combines the performances of modern single…

Battery Box

Battery Box Positioning and Arrangement System is the new battery box concept for e-bikes designed for urban and extra-urban mobility.

Mirrored Wheels

An innovative project of a superlight road carbon disc wheelset with a patent-pending joint between rim and carbon spokes.

Powertrain 180°

The Powertrain 180° is focused on the location of the powertrains which are usually located in the block with the crankshaft of a motorcycle engine.

Double Support Cases

Better handling is the primary focus and guiding principle for all the technical decisions we make at Alter Ego Motorcycle Hardware.
