Nominate now for Innovation from a Newcomer

Following the commencement of the nominations process for the BikeBiz Awards earlier this month, we’ll be highlighting each and every category from our list of expertly-curated accolades, designed to reflect the varied and vibrant nature of the sector: from prizes that honour local independents and distribution giants through to awards for innovative brands and those providing essential services to the industry including training, advocacy and beyond.

Today, we’re showcasing Innovation from a Newcomer. Previous winners include Spin Shed (2018) and KitBrix (2017).

Who should you nominate?
Any brand less than a year old which has launched a product demonstrating groundbreaking design and R&D.

Nominees will be judged on the level of innovation of the entrant product, its quality, and investment into R&D.

Nominees must provide a 200-word statement covering:
In what ways their portfolio demonstrates outstanding innovation in design
How the R&D process was used during product development
How the product improves the cycling experience
Their distribution arrangements

Additional credit could include, but is not limited to newcomers which have:
Supported and worked with IBDs
Used a business strategy demonstrating outstanding innovation
Supported up-and-coming cycling designers

Entries and nominations for all categories can be made using the quick and easy online form, and the deadline is midday on Friday 12th July. More details on all categories can be viewed online.

The 11th annual ceremony is returning to the Cycle Show at the NEC Birmingham on 12th September, in conjunction with the exhibitor after-party. Trade registrations are now live for the Cycle Show and will be free until 11th September, with entry on the door £15 per person without exception with proof of trade occupation (business card). Tickets for the Awards will be available shortly.
