TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2017

A Seal of Quality for Excellent Designs and Innovations

The TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards was launched six years ago to create an official seal of quality as a yardstick to measure design and innovation accomplishment. Since then, the TAITRA and the TBA present the awards, while the competition is implemented by iF and has developed into one of the most highly respected design competitions for the international cycling industry. Each year, we receive numerous entries from up to 19 different nations from around the world.

All the products selected by an international panel of experts will be presented at the Taipei International Cycle Show 2017 and Interbike 2017 in Las Vegas, US. Until 30 December 2016, manufacturers and designers from the cycling industry are invited to enter your designs and innovations to be put to the test by the judges in the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2017.
