COBI Connected Biking System Proudly Accepts Consumer Electronics Show Innovation Award

Highly innovative and fully integrated, COBI elegantly mates your bike with your smartphone to keep you connected on any ride.

FRANKFURT, Germany (November 10, 2015) - COBI, the first integrated system to connect your bike with your smartphone, has been selected as a Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Vehicle Intelligence product category. COBI scored highly across all judging criteria, joining a small percentage of products each year that earn this honor.

All Innovation Award entries are evaluated on their engineering, intended use, user value, feature set, and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace. COBI is a stand-alone technology, offering a one-of-a-kind user experience that provides seamless connectivity and elegant design aesthetics to an increasingly connected world.  

“The judges at CES see hundreds of award-worthy products each year and to have COBI stand out from this crowd is a real honor,” said Andreas Freitag, CMO with COBI. “We feel COBI will change the way we ride and commute and this award helps let us know we really are going to make a difference.”

All Innovation Honorees were officially announced publicly on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 in New York City at CES Unveiled New York. CES Unveiled New York is in its eleventh year and the half-day event provides a preview of the year’s most innovative products and technologies ahead of CES 2016.

Dozens of exhibitors and over 300 media attended the CES Unveiled networking event this year. The CES 2016 Best of Innovation Awards Honorees were announced during the opening CES press conference alongside the much-anticipated CEA Holiday Sales and End-of-Year Analysis.

Honorees are awarded the privilege of using the coveted 2016 Innovation Honoree logo on a product’s marketing materials, packaging, and/or website.
