A quiet revolution in bicycle design
The basic design and mechanics of the bicycle – triangular frame, chain drive, and upright pedaling – have barely changed since the late nineteenth century. But beneath this veneer of consistency a quiet revolution has been taking place in bicycle design. In the last two decades, new high-end materials and components have turned the humble bike into a complex and versatile machine.
The industry is booming as people embrace the bicycle for transport, health and leisure. Manufacturers increasingly look to the iF DESIGN AWARD as a seal of quality and innovation. As a result, our jury selects not only the best designs for leisure and sporting bikes, but also looks at the best of trekking, touring, cruising, folding, cargo, and mountain bikes, as well as pedelecs and e-bikes.
