The biggest cycling show in Europe opened the gates this week and started with the Demo Day. X-BIONIC® was there as usual to present the latest products and to offer test sets featuring the YUT:AS secret. We invited 40 exclusive selected participants among all applications we received for this great event. Everyone was excited about the upcoming tests and the weather looked promising too.
After a short briefing and the handover of the test sets, we separated in two groups and went for a short pre-lunch ride. The road bike team was really motivated and went about 30 kilometers in just 55 minutes. You can check out the STRAVA track of the first ride here: www.strava.com/activities/377236070.
The mountain bike team rode at the test track area next to the event area with our special off-road tour guide David from the Focus X-BIONIC® Team.
After the lunch break, the road bike team started a longer tour with 60 kilometers across the beautiful Bodensee area next to Friedrichshafen. Everyone liked the perfect cycling conditions and was happy with the test set of our brand new Twyce gear and the YUT:AS project. Check out the second road bike tour here: www.strava.com/activities/377236499.
The mountain bikers had fun as well and returned happy from the second test ride. The final thermo scan with a unique scan for each participant was a nice feature and visualised the temperature distribution. You can see it in our Facebook gallery.
Some weeks ago we met again nice people here in Wollerau for another edition of our X-PerienceDays series. About 20 fans were selected among lots of applications and joined our off-road event. Our special guests this time were the mountain bike guides from the Focus X-BIONIC® Team and Roman Zirwen who is a specialist for orthopaedics, sports osteopathy, acupuncture and preventive medicine.
Before we started our mountain bike tour, our guests got special insights to our company and the product development department. Roman Zirwen, our medical specialist, gave a short introduction to the problem areas of the body, especially for cyclists. He showed some nice and easy to learn exercises every cyclist can do regularly to keep the body in a good shape for cycling.
After every participant received its test equipment, the guides gave a short introduction to the planned route and the tour started. After the first part of the cycling track we met for a short break and our guests could eat a little snack and refill their bottles.
After the group returned to our company, we offered a delicious meal and the successful test day was finished. The next test day will be at the Eurobike Demo Day at the end of August in Friedrichshafen (GER). The next X-PerienceDay in Wollerau will be at the 12 September with running and road bike.

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.
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!
