Before and after the EUROBIKE the winners benefit from the wide-ranging communication services which draw attention of the trade, industry and media to the prize-winning product. What’s more, after the award ceremony all winning products are displayed online in the Award Gallery, where they can be seen all year round.
However, also in the retail trade the recognised label “EUROBIKE AWARD Winner” also offers the consumers valuable orientation and help in making their decision for buying a product, offering independent information on the functionality, innovation, workmanship und sustainability of the goods.

Every year the presentation of the EUROBIKE AWARD is one of the highlights of the supporting programme at the international trade fair. Here innovative products are honoured and presented to the visitors in an exclusive exhibition space.
Before the decisions are made as to the winners, gold winners and green award winners, a renowned specialist jury assesses the products submitted according to specified criteria in a two-stage evaluation process. In the preliminary evaluation all the digital applications are assessed using a uniform point system and those reaching a minimum score are selected for the final. For the next jury session the finalists also submit their products physically so that the experts can actually put the products to the test themselves and assess these accordingly.
Among the EUROBIKE Award winners this year, for example, are the new official bike-sharing cycle from Pashley/Beryl, ingenious cargo bikes for young families, digital tools for advising customers in cycle shops, but also protectors and full-face helmets for mountain bikers and lightweight components for ambitious sports enthusiasts to measure power. “Thanks to its diversity, the bike world is more fascinating than ever before. For many people, the bicycle remains first and foremost a beloved item of sporting equipment, at the same time though it is also a beacon of hope – if not the beacon – for a turnabout in traffic policy in the towns and cities plagued by congestion and poor air quality. Against this backdrop, the EUROBIKE Award is not only a recognition of particularly pioneering developments but also a mirror of the spectrum of topics covered by the bicycle and those involved in the market,” said Dirk Heidrich, EUROBIKE Project Manager.
“The spectrum of the 350 EUROBIKE Award entries that we as the panel of judges were allowed to assess was very broad indeed and also reflects the key trends: transport solutions, electric assistance, children and safety,” said panel member Sissi Pärsch after completing her task. Her fellow judge Tarek Rasouli went on to add: “There are some products in the EUROBIKE Award that promise more safety or more comfort. Others in turn adopt new approaches to the subject of sustainability. And this year there are many Award winners that point towards an exciting future as a means of urban transport. One thing all EUROBIKE Award winners have in common is their potential to make the world just a little bit better.”
A total of 45 new products from the bicycle world gained one of the coveted accolades in this year’s edition of the EUROBIKE Award. Among the award winners are also 13 products and concepts that the six-strong panel of experts deemed to represent an especially outstanding innovation and are thus deserving of a Gold Award. Two award winners additionally received a Green Award for special developments in the field of sustainability.
