New tandem world record

Project cieo

Last weekend two riders of the Projekt cieo set a new tandem world record: they rode 83 kilometers in one hour on a bicycle from a standing start! The riders Ruben Koch and Dominik Dusek beat the 33 years old record of 74,51 kilometers per hour from 1980 clearly. To get the best performance the team was equipped with X-BIONIC® by the Cycling Emotion AG from Zurich on it´s record ride. Congratulations for that great achievement!
