TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2020

A Seal of Quality for Excellent Designs and Innovations

The TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards was launched seven 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. For the past seven years, we received numerous entries from up to 30 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 2020. Until 16 December 2019, manufacturers and designers from the cycling industry are invited to enter their designs and innovations to be put to the test by the judges in the TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2020.
