TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2018

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. For the past six years, we received numerous entries from up to 30 different nations from around the world.

In response to the evolving trends of the bicycle industry, the TAIPEI CYCLE show will be taking on an all-new form from 2018 and has been rescheduled to take place from 31 October to 3 November 2018.
