Red Dot 2015: Two Awards for Ergon

With the ”GA2” mountain bike grip and the ”BE1 Enduro Protect” backpack once again two innovative Ergon products are awarded with the renowned Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015.

It’s not unusual that the Ergon brand has been awarded with top-class awards over and over again — and even getting two of them this year. At the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2015, the bike company received the treasured decoration for innovative and sophisticated product design for it’s new ”GA2” All Mountain/ Gravity grip and the ”BE1 Enduro Protect” backpack. After being awarded the Enduro Mountainbike Magazine Design & Innovation Award for 2015, this is already the second important decoration for the new two Ergon innovations.

The great importance of the Red Dot Award, which celebrates it’s 60th jubilee this year, is demonstrated by the tremendous number of participants. With 4,928 submissions and 1,994 participants from 56 countries, the award is not only the biggest and most renowned product competition but also the most international.

”We are really very proud of this award”, explains Ergon designer Jan Holzschuher. ”It is a great confirmation of our continuous efforts to meet the highest standards of design and functionality for our products.”
