TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2017: 57 entries take home the prestigious award

Today at a pre-show ceremony organized by Taiwan External Trade Development Council and Taiwan Bicycle Association and executed by iF DESIGN ASIA Ltd., the 57 winners of the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2017 were announced.

The seven top designs were recognized with the prestigious TAIPEI CYCLE gold award, with winners hailing from Taiwan, China, France, and the United Kingdom. Additionally, a start-up company from the United States won the special award Gold Award – Young Enterprise for their brand new bicycle lock design.

Selected out of following four categories: Bicycles, Components and Parts, Peripherals and Accessories, and E-bikes and Pedelecs, the jury panel was impressed with the variety of award-winning products this year. They pointed out many current trends, such as environmental sustainability, user interface and the integration of smart technology, developing in bicycle manufacturing and design.

More e-bikes were entered into the competition and awarded due to the growing popularity of e-bikes, including e-road bikes, e-mountain bikes and e-city bikes. With better power capacity, longer battery life and smaller battery size, e-bikes have become lighter and better for longer rides. The development of adjustable power output and advanced drive systems allow riders to enjoy different riding experience with various types of e-bikes.

Products integrated with IoT technology to monitor cycling routes, pedaling force and even control the safety systems are developed to guarantee safe and comfortable riding for professional and amateur cyclists, commuters, and riders of all ages, while many other bicycle components and accessories are designed to better fulfill user’s experience and needs.

All award-winning products will be featured in an award pavilion at the Main Lobby of Nangang Exhibition Hall during the TAIPEI CYCLE 2017 from 22 to 25 March 2017. Admission is free of charge, and the exhibition is open to the public. Visitors can take part in a Facebook check-in campaign for a free copy of special documentation of the year.

A special exhibition and an anniversary yearbook will also be available to mark the 30th anniversary of the TAIPEI CYCLE Show, featuring many award-winning products of the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards over the years and documenting the history of the bicycle industry in Taiwan over the past three decades for buyers, exhibitors and the general public.
