Almost two weeks ago X-BIONIC® was part of the Super Trofeo race series again, this time in Paul Ricard/France. Our pilot and X-BIONIC® athlete Cédric Leimer participated there with his team and won the AM class that weekend. His teammate Laurent Jenny said to Lamborghini Squadra Corse after the victory:
Leimer made a brilliant start climbing up to P7. He still managed to keep a considerable pace even after the Safety Car. Then it was my turn and all went well. I would like to thank once more my team and my sponsor.
The next race event of the European Super Trofeo series will be from Wednesday, July 22nd to Sunday, July 26th. We wish our team all the best for the races!
X-BIONIC® is the world’s only brand with 7 consecutive “MOST INNOVATIVE BRAND AWARD” titles, the biggest award for technology, sports and design. The Plus X Award honours manufacturers for the quality advantage of their products. This adds to the recognition culture benefiting innovative companies that today are already thinking about tomorrow.
The award ceremony of the largest innovation award for technology, sports and lifestyle products took place last week in Bonn. More than 350 invited guests saw the ceremony for the 25 Most innovative Brands of the year.
The host and president of the Plus X Award, Donat Brandt, could greet the numerous top decision makers from industry and retail as well as selected personalities from society, media and politics in the impressive atmosphere of the plenary hall of the First German Bundestag in Bonn.
During the large stage show, 26 brands received the golden, nearly 7 kg heavy trophy from the member of the Plus X Award panel of judges. The impressive stage, specifically built in the plenary hall, which is protected as an historic monument, provided the perfect surrounding for a stylish premium event. (Official Press Release)
The X-BIONIC® award champions – selected by the jury
Last month we organized the 5th X-PerienceDay this year here in Wollerau, our guests came from Germany, Switzerland and Austria to test the latest products. After a short meet and greet, we started the event with an introduction to the company and the development department showed some of the latest products and technologies:
After this “theoretical” part, the participants received their test equipment. The weather was perfect for the test event and we were looking forward to enjoying a perfect day. We prepared two different courses for running and cycling. The runners tested THE TRICK® shirts and pants and ran around a small sea next to our company. There we prepared a short uphill challenge where they could earn a Patriot Swiss Wallaby. Everyone who completed it, received the reward directly:
The cyclists received an X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini Huracán Edition test set for the ride. We started our tour to the Ironman 70.3 Rapperswil course and had a short break at the transition area of this event with a short introduction to the triathlon organisation:
After the nice trip, we returned to Wollerau and enjoyed a delicious BBQ which we have well deserved after the exhausting ride. We talked about the experience we had the past few hours during the run and the ride. Our guests were very happy and enjoyed the well organized X-PerienceDay. Check out our gallery with some pictures from the event:
The next test day will be in two weeks and we will have a rowing event at the Zuerisee. Our special guest and professional rower Steve Hiestand will join the event and support us with helpful tips for this kind of sport, you can already apply now: www.x-bionic.com/x-perience-days.
The X-BIONIC® athlete could repeat his success from the last year and beat his competitors during the third round of the 2015 Red Bull Air Race World Championship in Rovinj. He showed a great performance during the thrilling races in the coastal town of Croatia and won the Final 4 challenge. Due to this victory Hannes is now at the third rank of the Red Bull Air Race world championship standings. Hannes said after his first success this year:
It was an important victory for me after the difficult season start in Abu Dhabi and the desaster in Chiba. If you want to win, you have to believe in yourself [..] I have a good feeling with my team and we achieved our goals now, this is a good feeling that I don’t want to miss anymore.
Almost two weeks ago we organized our second track cycling workshop this year in Grenchen, it was the fourth X-PerienceDay in 2015. In February, we were already on this track and every participant was happy with the great event at the Velodrome Suisse.
This time our guests came from Switzerland and Germany to join the track cycling event. Most of them visited for the first time a cycling track and were really impressed about the steepness of the turns (46 degrees), this was really fascinating when they saw it for the first time. They could not imagine riding in that zone, but everyone could resolve it after some laps with the instructors.
After we introduced ourselves to each other, the workshop instructors gave first insights into the track bike and the do’s and dont’s during the riding.
We finished this event with a lot of new knowledge about how to train and behave on a cycling track. We are planning to repeat this workshop later that year and are looking forward to seeing you there!
