The Eurobike Awards have been presented. The international trade show notes that this year’s winners ‘inspired the six-strong international panel of judges with both their unique character and the consistency with which they had thought through and worked out their ideas and projects.’
For the show organisers, the presentation of the 2019 Awards on the first day of the trade fair was also a demonstration that Eurobike and its exhibitors represent a benchmark in all of the increasingly broad segments of the industry – from sport through to new mobility.
“There are many awards, but only very few in which the innovations for cycling are assessed by a really independent panel of judges,” explained Eurobike Show Director Dirk Heidrich. “Consequently, as an accolade from the leading trade fair within the industry, the Eurobike Award is one of the most important genuine yardsticks for innovation and design in the bike world – from the manufacturers, via retailers, to the end users.
“This appraisal is confirmed by the number of participants, which has remained constantly high for years and justifies all our efforts.”
From the roughly 400 entries, 43 were selected this year for Eurobike Awards, with nine of them receiving Gold Awards. Added to this were five Start-Up Awards for the best developments by newcomers to the industry; one of them even managed to secure a Gold Award at the same time – the Swiss company Asfalt for its LR model – an urban e-bike.
