Topeak Scoops Red Dot Awards
27 Mar, 2010

Topeak cycling accessories has received a total of four prestigious red dot awards for 2010, including one 'Best of the Best' distinction for the Mega MorphTM compact floor pump. Three red dot product design awards were awarded for the Air BackPack, RaceRocket mini pump and Mini 20 Pro tool.

 

The red dot awards

The red dot design award has been held by the Design Centre of North Rhine-Westphalia since 1955 and is one of the biggest and most renowned design competitions in the world. In 2010, the competition evaluated 4252 products from 1,636 companies from 57 nations in its three disciplines, “red dot award: product design”; “red dot award: communication design” and “red dot award: design concept”. In the end, only the very best from the field of the top-class participants were selected for the red dot award.

 

“It is truly an honor to receive four red dot awards and it is especially exciting to be presented with a “Best of the Best” award for our new Mega MorphTM pump,” says Topeak President Louis Chuang. “Our in-house design team is very proud to have their ideas recognized by this international design award and confirms their commitment to the highest level of innovative design and quality.”

Red dot “Best of the Best”; Mega MorphTM

The newest of the award-winning MorphTM family of pumps, the Mega MorphTM is an innovative, highly-portable, folding floor pump for cyclists who want the most compact floor pump. Every design detail of the new Mega MorphTM has been streamlined to produce a minimized profile when folded. Utilizing the same high-performance barrel as our JoeBlowTM line of floor pumps, the Mega MorphTM pumps to 160psi to fill road and mountain bike tires fast and features a padded handle, top-mounted fold-out analog gauge, SmartHeadTM all-valve hose head, 360-degree swiveling hose and a fold-out footpad.

Red dot award; Air BackPack

Unlike typical cycling packs which use heavy foam padding for comfort and rigid plastic for structural stability, the new Air BackPack features lightweight, multi-channel air chambers located in the hip belt and back contact area to provide tunable comfort and rigid pack support. The internal air chambers are pressurized with an integrated micro pump and release valve which fold into the hip belt, allowing the wearer to make fine adjustments while on the go.  These full-length, deeply channeled air chambers also aid in cooling the rider by drawing a continuous airflow across the back area.

The Air BackPack weighs only 675 grams and folds to a compact size for storage or travel. With space for a hydration bladder, tools, pump, clothing and more this ingenious pack makes mountain biking more enjoyable.

Red dot award; RaceRocket MasterBlaster

Topeak went all out when developing this incredibly powerful mini pump – every feature is intelligently designed to provide maximum performance. Its efficient single-action design inflates up to 140psi to satisfy road and mountain bikers and its innovative SmartHeadTM ThreadLock  accepts Presta and Schrader valves and extends on a flexible hose – taking pressure off the valve stem when filling a tire.  And to top it off the RaceRocket is tiny in size and easily slips into a jersey pocket or saddle bag.

Red dot award; Mini 20 Pro

Topeak has taken the common cyclist's multi tool and turned it into a mechanical work of art. This 20- function wonder contains all the tools a mountain biker could ever need wrapped in a high-strength alloy body.  The professional quality, hardened steel tools resist wear and tear while the integrated cast CrMo chain tool makes quick work of any drive train repair.  The Mini 20 fits in its own neoprene pouch.
