The LocLock provides a useful incentive for town planners to design more attractive street furniture and improves the infrastructure for urban cycling. The combination of cement for durability and a surface that reduces the risk of damage to frames is a very good idea. With their bright range of colours, these stands also present an interesting opportunity to include corporate design.

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — Eurobike received more than 458 applications from brands for this year's Eurobike Awards. A panel of six judges honored 43 winning products, and 11 companies took home Gold Awards during a ceremony held at the Messe Friedrichshafen on Wednesday evening.

“We are delighted by the large number of entrants in the Eurobike Awards and the high level of innovation displayed among them,” said Stefan Riesinger, the head of Eurobike. “This year’s competition has shown once again that the bike industry is now one of the high-tech segments and in some areas — such as electro-mobility, materials technology and digitization — is actually assuming a pioneering role. Added to this is the fact that product design has long been a subject that suppliers in the cycle market master with aplomb.”

The Gold Award is presented to new products at Eurobike that redefine the benchmark for technical development within a given category, and the Green Award is given to a company with a sustainable innovation. Five new companies received Start-up Awards.

The Eurobike Award Gold winners included: 

  • Påhoj Child Seat 
  • Rohloff E-14 
  • Linka Smart Bicycle Lock 
  • Mokumono Delta 
  • Adlerwerke Bicycle Carrier
  • Durbanis LocLock
  • Tucano Urbano Magic Parka 
  • Rondo Ruut CF1 
  • Focus Project Y 
  • Fazua Evation 
  • Van Nicholas Skeiron     

Schwalbe won the Eurobike Green Award for its Green Compound tire compound.

All 43 award winners' products are exhibited as part of a special display in the West Foyer of the Messe.
