Bring your bicycle design to the next level!

The TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards was launched 11 years ago to create an official seal of quality as a yardstick to measure design and innovation accomplishment. Since then, the TAITRA and the TBA present the awards, while the competition is implemented by iF and has become one of the most highly respected design competitions for the international cycling industry. For the past 11 years, we received numerous entries from up to 30 different nations from all around the world. This year, once again, we welcome all the participants of innovations and design in the bicycle industry.
