WFSGI plans public meeting at Taipei show

Published February 16, 2016

TAIPEI, Taiwan (BRAIN) — The World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry will hold a public meeting at the Taipei Cycle Show next month, in addition to several industry-only meetings.

The public session will present highlights of WFSGI bicycle projects and results from its work with the UCI, IOC and the different standards institutes including ISO and CEN.

"The WFSGI Bicycle Committee looks back again on a very exciting and progressive year in the collaboration with the UCI on further developments with technical rules and regulations," the group said.

WFSGI was instrumental in pushing the UCI to allow disc brakes in road racing, which has been done on an experimental basis since last summer.

WFSGI also has been working with the UCI on a wheel testing rule. Progress has been made by the UCI's adoption of a new test that contains self-certification.

And WFSGI has been working with the UCI on rules governing advertisement and manufacturing identification rules for the Olympic Games. The Rio 2016 IOC manufacturing identification guidelines allow for more sponsor/supplier visibility and show more flexibility when it comes to sports equipment.

The meeting is Thursday, March 3, from 2:30-4 p.m. at the Nangang Exhibition Hall, Room 401.
