INNOVATIONS AND PREMIERES
CATEGORIES OF EUROBIKE AWARD 2021
The EUROBIKE AWARD is ready to roll. And looking for innovative, new products in the classic categories, bicycles, e-bikes, components, apparel and accessories, as well as digital ideas and alternative mobility solutions. There are two further special awards – the Green Award and the Start-up Award.
CATEGORY BICYCLES AND E-BIKES
Bikes are mobility solutions, sports equipment, lifestyle objects and much more besides. Both with and without e-drives. Their multi-faceted nature provides plenty of room for creativity, innovation and exceptional design.
CATEGORY BIKE COMPONENTS
Any bike depends on the sum of its parts. Without innovative components, the bike market would stand still. From spokes to e-drives, from handle bars to wheels – without them there’s no forward motion.
CATEGORY BIKE ACCESSORIES
Water bottles, bells, bags, locks and tools – bike accessories are as diverse as bikes themselves. Looking for the latest products that improve both the riding and the service experience.
CATEGORY APPAREL AND ACCESSORIES
Modern bike apparel has to meet high requirements. It has to be practical for everyday wear, functional for sport and look good too. This category is for everything a rider wears from head to toe – from weatherproof jackets to sunglasses.
SPECIAL AWARDS: GREEN AWARD AND START-UP AWARD
Sustainability is a decisive factor – from products made of recycled materials to eco-friendly transport solutions. The Green Award looks for resource-saving innovations. There is a further special prize for ideas from start-ups.
CATEGORIES DIGITAL SOLUTIONS AND MOBILITY SOLUTIONS
Today’s visionary concepts and products are tomorrow’s mobility solutions. Essential for bikes to be part of the digital mobility mix and provide practical alternative mobility solutions.
