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.

Crankbrothers Mallet E


The Crankbrothers Mallet DH are legendary for their large platforms and class-leading support. The new Crankbrothers Mallet E pedals offer the same support and class-leading grip, but in a smaller, lighter package for trail and enduro riders. The integrated traction pad allows for customization of pedal feel, and the new double-seal weatherproofing and revised Igus LL Glide and Enduro bearing arrangement should increase reliability. With a simple mechanism, excellent mud shedding, and four-way clip-in, the Mallet E provides exceptional control and grip in the roughest terrain.
