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.



The GORE BIKE WEAR POWER TRAIL GT AS shorts feature a robust shell with a full GORE-TEX membrane to keep the cooler weather outside. With reflective logos and piping to ensure riders can be seen on the way to the trails, the highly breathable fabric also keeps things cool when working hard. The great loose fit works well with knee pads, yet is close enough to keep the water from splashing up inside. Great gear for taking your riding year round.
