Eurobike, the world’s biggest annual bike show, is over for another year with highlights for 2019 including over 1,400 exhibitors showcasing the latest innovations to more than 60,000 visitors from around the globe.
Bicycling Australia were again in Germany for the exhibition where everyone from market leaders to visionary start-ups showcased an extensive selection of the latest in all-things cycling.
The CEO of Messe Friedrichshafen, Klaus Wellmann, summarised the 28th edition of Eurobike by describing the event as ‘an innovation-driven mobility show.’
“Manufacturers from all over the world shone a spotlight on the bike and all its components as a sports vehicle and sought-after mode of transport,” he said.
“Established exhibitors and large numbers of new companies all demonstrated the current upbeat mood on the market with their products. Powered by the particular impact of electrification, it was made very clear in Friedrichshafen that the bike will play an increasingly important role – whether in town or country, for leisure or the daily commute.”
