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 2in1 Pants combine the comfort of shorts with the added protection of a full-length tight. Made out of GORE’s legendary WINDSTOPPER Soft Shell fabric, the 2in1’s offer excellent freedom of movement and weather-resistant protection in a garment that’s more comfortable than wearing separate shorts and tights. The POWER TRAIL 2in1 pants are also considerably warmer than shorts without any sacrifice in freedom of movement.
