The first Womens City Run with X-BIONIC® in Zurich!

Last Saturday, we organised the first X-BIONIC® Womens City Run in collaboration with SwissCityBootCamp. Two coaches and 25 extremely motivated women ran with our new X-BIONIC® TWYCE running wear through the city of Zurich. The weather was perfect with a deep blue sky, sunshine and a nice view to the swiss mountains. We did an intensive workout run of 4 kilometers with several exercises at some historical hotspots of Zurich.

After that nice training session we returned to our starting point at the 5-star hotel Park Hyatt Zurich. There we enjoyed a nice meal created by Frank Widmer, the so called brain-, mood-, und beauty-food was very delicious. We also got an interesting workshop about healthy nutrition afterwards. After the event, each participant received a goodie bag with some great beauty products especially for women. Everyone was happy with the event, it was very impressive and we are looking forward to the next workshop!

Last month we met again some fans of X-BIONIC® at the Velodrome Swiss in Grenchen for another track cycling workshop. Like in our two previous events there, experienced guides showed us how to ride on a wooden indoor cycling track. Track cycling is a great alternate sport for the indoor season here in Europe when the streets are wet or frozen. The average temperature inside the Velodrome is always above 20 degrees.

Before the cycling fun started, our workshop guides introduced the basic steps of track cycling. Especially the bike without breaks and gears looked quite interesting.

For this event in Grenchen, we also invited a special guest: European Ultracycling Champion and Race around Ireland winner Bernhard Steinberger talked about his great experiences at the green island last year. He showed some impressive pictures and videos of his great success. You can read our race report and an interview with Bernhard here: LINK.

After the theoretical part, the workshop continued at the cycling track. Each participant received a test set and the prepared track bike for the ride. X-BIONIC® TWYCE, X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini and X-BIONIC® THE® TRICK bike wear were handed over for the test session.

After some laps, each participant enjoyed the fun and could increase his bike handling the more laps he rode. The most important thing about track cycling is to be attentive what happens before and behind you. On a track bike, you also need to ride a minimum speed of about 25 kph to get through the stiff turns and not to slip downwards. This is the first thing you learn when you ride a track bike.

Follow me: the closer you ride behind another cyclist, the less power you need.

The workshop lasted three hours at the track and everyone enjoyed it. Special thanks to our guide René and his mates, who did a great job again for a safe ride. If you want to ride on a cycling track, you need to attend the basic lessons before you can join public training sessions, you can find more information here.

We will return to the Velodrome this year, stay tuned!

As a cyclist, you need to get this experience at least once in a lifetime, you won't regret!

Before we started the training session, the X-PerienceDay began with a short meet and greet and a little breakfast in our office. After that, our participants got some interesting and exclusive insights to our development department and learned a lot about X-BIONIC®’s latest technologies and products.

When the workshops were done, we handed over the test sets: THE TRICK® running shirts & pants for men and women. The fitness training was planned to take place in a gym hall  inside the Erlenmoos building. But the weather was perfect for an outdoor training session, so we decided to go outside. Sunshine and temperatures above 20 degrees made the test day perfect. Daniele pushed us to our limits, but everyone enjoyed the workout and had a lot of fun.

Let the sun shine: X-BIONIC® X-PerienceDay!

X-PerienceDay Bike & Run

Last Saturday we organised another exclusive X-PerienceDay at our headquarter here in Wollerau. The sun was shining and the weather remained perfect during the whole event. Some of our fans traveled very long distances to participate, for example from Hamburg or Frankfurt/M. in Germany.

After a short meet and greet in the morning, we introduced the company and our team provided insights into our product development department. During the running and cycling part, our guests tested X-BIONIC® for Automobili Lamborghini Bike wear and THE TRICK® run and bike wear.

X-PerienceDay Bike & Run

The running team explored the closer area next to our office location. The landscape around our company is quite hilly but very cool for such a running event. The cycling team covered about 55 kilometers over a few mountains and had a lot of fun. Our video team filmed during the whole ride and used a drone for some cool footage.

The lunch after the sporty part was very delightful and we enjoyed our meal outside, it was very warm and sunny. The X-PerienceDay was very successful with nice people and we are looking forward to our next event in October.

The YUT:AS Experiment Video

More than 40 bike athletes faced off with secret X-BIONIC® prototypes. Without knowing what it would do to them, they put the innovation against their skin – then sent out their honest assessment on social media. Just the way it should be. Because every X-BIONIC® product also has to convince the harshest testers in the world: the bike athletes themselves.
