Smart Cycling in Focus at Bigger Than Ever Taipei Cycle Show

Taipei, 21 June 2018 – Taipei Cycle, Asia’s largest trade fair for the bicycle industry, is set to relaunch with new dates and a modernized concept in 2018. With 1,170 exhibitors, nearly 3,450 booths and an anticipated 50,000 visitors, the trade fair held annually in Taiwan’s capital will be bigger than ever. A schedule shift that is more favorable for the global cycling industry, the expansion to a second venue, and a brand new IoT Zone as well as a Start-up Pavilion are some of the new highlights that will be discussed during a press conference to be held at next month’s Eurobike in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Also to be announced during the press conference are several new innovations from Taiwanese companies as well as the recent release of a stricter Taiwan Industry Bicycle Standard. Taipei Cycle will be held from October 31 to November 3 at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 1 and TWTC Hall 3. Strengthening the show’s position as the industry’s driving innovative force Over the last few years, Taipei Cycle has become a show for suppliers and distributors to reach international customers. At the same time, it remains one of the most important conferences for business engagement and networking. With the new dates, Taipei Cycle will better serve as a platform for product managers, allowing them to finalize their plans for their newest model year and providing them with a venue, where innovative prototypes can be previewed before the start of mass production. As more attention is drawn to doing business in emerging markets, Taipei Cycle has also evolved into the top trade fair for suppliers to showcase their bicycle brands and product ranges throughout Asia. The regional convenience for distributors and retailers creates easy access to the growing markets on the largest continent. Growing in importance and size With technology advancing rapidly, the bicycle market is being shaped by specialized providers with expertise not only in the manufacturing of bike frames but also in software development – amongst them, young emerging companies that will now also feature as prominent exhibitors at Taipei Cycle. To accommodate this expansion, the 2018 edition of Taipei Cycle will make use of Hall 3 at the Taipei World Trade Center, in addition to the exhibition’s established main location at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre. The new venue will be labeled Taipei Cycle Plus. It will feature the newly created Start-up Pavilion and IoT Zone dedicated to start-up companies, exhibitors from the IoT segment as well as established brands from the electronics segment, such as Bryton (GPS computers), Shutter Precision (hub dynamos) and MPS Energy (battery packs). Highlights of 2018: Smart bikes & new safety standards The press conference at Eurobike, organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), the Ministry of Economic Affairs, and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), will also feature diverse speakers and experts. Driven by the passion to make sustainable transport accessible to everyone, Dr. Kuan-Jiuh Lin has established SwiCity IoT, which is a roadmap of next trend technology for smart health, smart life and better eco-living overall. This initiative provides multiple services including a cycling-related project which enables users to digitally rent bikes and communicate with fellow cyclists. Dr. Lin will present SwiCity’s proprietary LoRa technology at the press conference. The Taiwan Bicycle Industry Standard (TBIS) was introduced in 2016 by the Taiwan Bicycle Association to ensure a higher-level quality and safety standard for manufacturing. Based on ISO 4120, the TBIS also incorporates other international standards used in the bicycle industry. At Eurobike, Jason Hsu will introduce the latest upgrades to the TBIS, which now also incorporates safety standards for new components such as folding mechanisms. Leading industry pioneers Four Taiwanese companies have also been invited to the Eurobike press conference to provide the media with a condensed insight of the diverse, innovative brands that will be exhibiting at Taipei Cycle: 1. With over 30 years of IT industry experience, the company HubMaster develops innovative and intelligent cycle-related applications and devices. At Eurobike, it will exhibit an innovative power meter hub, a cassette torque and speed sensors for pedelecs of its brand CyberMotions. 2. The TBS Group will present its patented ultra-smart bike meter solution called AROFLY. Originating from aerospace technology, AROFLY is the lightest and smallest power meter with a full function bike computer that acquires cycling data based on air pressure differential technology.
