The award ceremony took place on 26th August at Eurobike Show. During the ceremony Eurobike’s project manager Dirk Heidrich pointed out that, “At a time when the bicycle industry is witnessing a strong growth in innovation, there are still products that stand out from the rest of the field. These products are setting new industry benchmarks for technical innovation and outstanding design.”
Guppy Junior impressed the jury and was recognized with an award in the accessories category. The jury stated that: “Until now there has been no suitable products for children who have outgrown traditional child seats, but shouldn´t be cycling around town on their own- The Guppy Junior´s new approach could change all this. Children can sit in it comfortably and upright. Its crisp design sets the Guppy Junior apart from other children’s seats."
The EUROBIKE AWARD is one of the leading international design awards for companies in the bike industry. New and innovative products are assessed and evaluated by an independent panel of six expert judges. Due to its transparent evaluation process, it provides an important decision-making aid to consumers when making a purchase. In addition, the award is an important independent confirmation of the high level of innovation, functionality, quality and sustainability.
