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 latest range from POC sets a unique and bold style statement. The Resistance Mid Shorts and Jersey blend cutting-edge design with well-proven materials and construction, producing a trail riding range that’s comfortable, practical, and has a great freedom of movement. The well-vented and stylish Tectal helmet combines great coverage and ventilation, unibody construction, and EPS protection with a brand-new design and colour scheme to match the new line. The super-sharp Carl Zeiss-lensed Crave glasses finish off the outfit well, boasting crystal-clear optics and great compatibility with the Tectal helmet.
