The French makers of patented electronic pedal technology have been recognised with industry honours
CIXI has announced the well-earned achievement of being awarded in the German Design Awards 2024 as Excellent Product Design in the category of Bicycles and E-Bikes.
The GDA jury states:
“The PERS Chainless Pedalling System for all types of e-bikes is an innovative electronic crankset with an automatic transmission that works without a chain and still promises a natural pedaling feeling.”
CIXI’s PERS technology adapts pedal resistance according to the rider’s style, to offer a tailor-made experience. This system does not require great athletic effort to actively travel 20 or 30 km, the electronic crankset system makes active mobility possible and enjoyable for all. CIXI has aimed to remove the geometrical constraints of mechanical transmission, making the PERS a versatile and competitive product able to fit diverse architectures and applications, from regular and cargo bikes to high-speed vehicles.
CIXI’s design team was also honored with the 2023 Lapiz de Acero Award for the ROVER 45 concept bicycle design in collaboration with LOOK Cycle. One of 66 winners across a variety of outstanding design, as one of the first concrete applications of chainless urban speed pedelec bicycle technology, the ROVER 45 reveals other possibilities in creating new types of vehicles.
CIXI was further delighted to be named one of the winners of STMicroelectronics France’s 1st edition of its ST for Startups – Sustainability Challenge France.
