Revolt Zycling signed a binding cease-and-desist declaration and agreed to pay a confidential settlement amount to MyStromer AG to resolve its legal dispute.

The patent-infringing Opium Bikes, the company’s first generation, are banned from being sold in Switzerland and various markets in the European Union.

After Revolt Zycling admitted to a patent infringement, it settled the proceedings before the Unified Patent Court in February. The settlement comes after the Swiss Federal Patent Court and previously the Unified Patent Court ordered a preliminary prohibition on manufacturing and marketing against Revolt Zycling AG due to patent infringement for its previously marketed Opium Bikes,

MyStromer had also filed a lawsuit against Revolt Zycling for design infringement of the Stromer ST7. As part of the settlement, Revolt Zycling rescinded the nullity claims against the Swiss and European Stromer design raised to react to the lawsuit. As part of the settlement, MyStromer granted a design license for the frame of certain bike models to Revolt Zycling.

MyStromer said it had invested considerable resources over many years in the development, road safety and optimization of Speed Pedelecs and contributed to “significant technological improvement.” As such, “the protection of Stromer technologies and the associated fostering of its intellectual property are an important part of MyStromer’s efforts,” the company reported.

Company Co-CEOs Karl Ludwig Kley and Tomi Viiala agreed: “We support honest competition, as it stimulates the market and highlights the appeal of S-Pedelecs as a means of transport for commuters. But we will not tolerate reproduction of our technical innovations and our protected designs.”
