The mission of the Design & Innovation Award is to shape the bicycle world in a positive way. It also serves as a forum for creativity, visionary ideas as well as the industry’s most innovative products. More than 40 experts from 10 countries joined this year’s event to test, analyze and judge the best and most innovative products of 2016 in Kronplatz/San Vigilio – Dolomites. The Award recognises either outstanding product design and function, or innovation that sets a new standard and inspires future product generations and forward-thinking approaches.

Leatt DBX Enduro Lite WP 2.0


The Leatt DBX Enduro Lite WP 2.0 offers an innovative new approach to backpacks. The fully waterproof and seam-welded construction keeps your belongings dry in the worst of weather, while neat internal organization keeps the contents in place (there’s even a touchscreen phone pocket to help keep you connected). However, the DBX is more than just a backpack, as the addition of the Level 1 back protector will please racers and safety-conscious riders alike – but it’s the clever harness that impresses most! The unique chest harness does away with the waist strap and provides a very secure and stable fit, even on the toughest downhills. Well recommended.
