This prestigious award will be officially presented by the iF Design jury during Asia’s biggest cycle fair, Taipei Cycle Show, held March 5th through 8th, 2014.
The iF jury judged the many bicycle industry entrants on superiority of innovation, design and quality. The IZIP E3 Metro, an urban utility eBike, presented a strong design and clean aesthetic.
Stable cargo carrying capability, rider comfort, and the removable seat-tube integrated battery pack gives the IZIP E3 Metro the combination of weight balance, functionality and style which the judges were looking for.
The IZIP E3 Metro features an easy to install and remove front basket with 25kg load capability, bamboo-paneled rear carrier, rugged construction, and an e-system equipped with both throttle control and hybrid pedal assist systems with custom LCD display.
The IZIP E3 Metro will be available exclusively through Currie Technologies’ Authorized Dealers in spring of 2014.
