Canyon receives Red Dot Design Team of the Year award

Published June 26, 2017

KOBLENZ, Germany (BRAIN) — Canyon has received the Red Dot: Design Team of the Year 2017 award and its team will be included in the Red Dot Hall of Fame, the organization has announced.

Red Dot noted that this year two Canyon bike models received the organization's top award, the Red Dot: Best of the Best.

Red Dot will bestow the award on July 3 at the Red Dot Gala at the Museum Essen in Essen, Germany.

Professor Peter Zec, the founder and CEO of the Red Dot Award, said, "I am delighted that this year's Red Dot: Design Team of the Year title of honor goes to Canyon, which has become a global player in the industry and has been filling our jury with enthusiasm for several years now. Canyon bikes show the potential a brand can develop when the focus is on the person, who is always searching for more than just a bike: namely a constant companion in the countryside or in the city, or as a professional athlete. This is achieved through the exemplary customer‐focused design and by the unique production and sales structures."

Canyon founder Roman Arnold said, "For Canyon, being named Red Dot: Design Team of the Year means the expression of utmost appreciation of the huge dedication of our developers and designers over many years. Winning an award for something that we consider to be hugely important without putting ourselves forward for this award highlights the significance of this distinction. We are honoured that Canyon as a bicycle manufacturer will take its place in a "Hall of Fame" alongside the world's biggest designers."
