GOOD DESIGN is the world’s most recognized and oldest Design Awards program organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies. The trademarked awards were created in Chicago in 1950 by three architects: Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.
The Good Design Award and MYCYCLING
The 67th Good Design Award recognizes the work of thousands of designers and manufacturers worldwide who have successfully undertaken the design challenge to produce the best and most outstanding design products across the globe to our large and expanding global consumers.
Over 900 new products and graphic designs were selected from over 48 countries for different categories among which: new electronics, medical equipment, furniture and sports and recreation.
MYCYCLING combines a hi-tech smart trainer, a native app with personalized programs and a network of professional trainers able to guide the user and develop tailor-made training programs. MYCYCLING has been awarded both for the design of the product and for the design of the dedicated app.
Good Design Awards is a program dedicated to the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world. The program called every year for three shows a year. One takes place during the Chicago winter furniture market in January. The second one coinciding with the June summer market. The third one with a November show.
SMART TRAINER – THE PRODUCT
MYCYCLING is designed to offer maximum stability during training, especially when simulating outdoor sprints. The heart of the product is the electro-mechanical brake that controls with acute precision every second you are in the seat. MYCYCLING also features a torque sensor able to directly measure your power with a precision tolerance of +/-1%.
MYCYCLING APP – THE DEDICATED APP
Tests, programs, personalization, routes and bio-feedback: all this is part of MYCYCLING App. The user can take control of MYCYCLING via Bluetooth and start training by simply placing the smartphone on the handlebar support.
PERSONALIZED TRAINING PROGRAMS
MYCYCLING includes a wide range of personalized training programs created to enhance the performance thanks to TNT – Technogym Neuromuscular Trainin - a specific system born of the collaboration between Technogym’s Medical and Scientific Research and the best athletes, coaches physiologists and sports trainers. TNT starts with a preliminary test to ascertain the user’s anaerobic power and cadence thresholds via 2 tests carried out indoors: the Technogym Maximal Test and the FTP (Functional Threshold Power) test. Based on the results, your training will be personalized.
MYCYCLING is compatible with road bikes, mountain bikes, and track bikes.
