"The spectrum of the 350 Eurobike Award entries that we as the panel of judges were allowed to assess was very broad indeed and also reflects the key trends: transport solutions, electric assistance, children and safety,” said panel member Sissi Pärsch after completing her task. Her fellow judge Tarek Rasouli went on to add: "There are some products in the Eurobike Award that promise more safety or more comfort. Others, in turn, adopt new approaches to the subject of sustainability. And this year there are many Award winners that point towards an exciting future as a means of urban transport.
