New urban bike is one of just 10 winners in prestigious design competition

FRIEDRICHSCHAFEN, GERMANY (September 5, 2008)— The new Giant City Speed bicycle was chosen as the gold medal winner in the City Bike category of the prestigious Eurobike Awards at the Eurobike trade show on Thursday. The City Speed, an urban bike that seamlessly blends technical innovation with minimalist design, was one of only 10 winners in a competition that included more than 350 entries from 27 countries.

This City Speed was awarded the gold medal by an international panel of experts in a presentation held Thursday evening at the Fashion Show stage of the Eurobike trade show in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The bike is also part of a special design display in the foyer of the four-day Eurobike show, which concludes on Sunday.

With the City Speed, Giant designers and engineers set out to create a bike that features both speed and simplicity. Its comfortable, upright position, streamlined curves and modern touches including integrated head- and taillights, make it a perfect choice for street-smart urban dwellers.

The Eurobike Awards jury selected winners based on design and function, and offered the following comments on the Giant City Speed: “The bike is very well designed from start to finish. All the components have been specially coordinated to work together perfectly. The front light, the stem and the handlebars, for example, from a single unit. Great.”
