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.

Source Hipster Hydration Belt

Source Hipster Hydration Belt

There have been a number of belt-style bags that have hit the market over the years, but all have suffered from stability issues. The new Source Hipster Hydration Belt addresses these issues with the addition of a removable minimalistic harness to hold the pack comfortably in place. The bladder has been designed to spread the weight over the rider’s hips, and there is a clever magnetic clip to hold the hydration tube in place. For those who do not like a weight on their back, the Source Hipstver offers a stable and comfortable alternative.
