This year saw a total of 366 products entered from various categories into the Eurobike Awards.
A six-strong expert panel of judges had the final say on which of the highlights from the entries for the coming model year were worthy of an award.
Like its predecessors, the 14th edition of the Eurobike Awards was again distinguished by a broad spectrum of submitted products, which the manufacturers feel will have the potential to define the new trends in the bike market.
At the end of a two-stage judging process, the panel of judges finally agreed on 40 products that are now set to be part of a special exhibition in Foyer East at the Messe Friedrichshafen exhibition grounds. Twelve of the products, which in the judges' view possess an especially high level of innovative character, will additionally see their Eurobike Award presented in gold. Two further new products have also been rewarded for innovations in the field of sustainability with the special Green Award.
"The bike market is currently influenced by a large number of new factors such as the changing demands for mobility and the increasing impact of digitalisation. The Eurobike Award is also a documentary record of the bold approach adopted by the market players within the bike industry when solving these challenges. It once again provides a concentrated look at the innovative future of the bike market,” said Eurobike project manager Dirk Heidrich.
