During the Dutch, annual “Bicycle of the Year” election, which is always organized during the Bike Motion tradefair, the most innovative bikes are granted special awards. As a preferred partner for bicycle lights, Spanninga is always excited to discover which bike brands are prized at this occasion. And this year again, it is with great pride and pleasure that we would like to share that 3 of the awarded bikes/brands are equipped with Spanninga lights!

  1. Bicycle of the Year: Cortina Common
    The major prize of the competition has been given to the CORTINA Common city bike. Featuring Spanninga lights on both front and rear, it is no big surprise that the bike has been complimented for its “no-nonsense cycling pleasure”. The Cortina Common displays on the front the Axendo 40+ dynamo headlamp, and on the rear the Solo dynamo rearlight.
  2. E-bike of the Year: Sparta M8b
    Above all, the SPARTA M8b e-bike scored on its fresh, elegant and contemporary design, in which the design lights were highlighted as a big plus. The integrated headlamp is starred as a real eye-catcher! Spanninga is delighted of the recognition of this headlamp as it is the result of a collaboration with the design teams of Sparta. Displaying COB LED technology and fully integrated above the fork of the e-bike, it is a perfect example of Spanninga’s expertise in custom-made developments.
  3. Bicycle Innovation Award: Brompton Electric
    Equipped with the Spanninga Solo rearlight for e-bikes, the Brompton Electric is a fantastic foldable e-bike. Everything is focused on maintaining user friendliness when using a foldable bike, without reducing its quality. Among others, the automatic lights are mentioned by the jury as being complementary to this result.

Spanninga would like to congratulate all award winners!
