Guelph Company Awarded 2018 Eurobike Award For The Salamander Cycle Stroller 2

Judges at the leading global bicycle industry trade show selected Wike’s Made-in-Canada cycle stroller out of 366 contenders

GUELPH, ONTARIO – July 10th, 2018 – Wike, a Guelph company and Dragon’s Den contender, has won a 2018 EUROBIKE Award at the world’s leading bike industry trade show.

The Salamander, a convertible cycle stroller, was selected by the EUROBIKE judges among 366 contenders at the 27th EUROBIKE trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The EUROBIKE Award highlights functionality, innovation, sustainability and workmanship in the bicycle industry.

Wike launched the Salamander in 2017 after five years of research and development. The patented cycle stroller operates both as a standard Dutch-style cargo bicycle and a double child-stroller. The design allows parents to cycle with their children safely and easily switch from bike-to-stroller to enter stores or board public transit.

“The bike market is currently influenced by a large number of new factors such as the changing demands for mobility and the increasing impact of digitalization,” said EUROBIKE Project Manager Dirk Heidrich. “The EUROBIKE Award is a documentary record of the bold approach adopted by the market players within the bike industry when solving these challenges.”

Wike’s Salamander is the latest in a long line of bicycle products, but it is the first to receive recognition from an international organization like EUROBIKE.
