Delta Cycle is delighted to announce its iXi Bike has won the Bronze Medal in the 2005 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) competition, a celebration of the best and hottest product designs of the year. The award is bestowed to a product exhibiting a new level of complexity management, carving out new market niches and expanding old ones. The competition also considered a focus on beauty, sustainability, and craftsmanship.
iXi's chief designer Phil Karl is thrilled. "iXi is much more than a nicely designed bike. We have done our best to reinvent modern transportation with iXi; good industrial design was the best way to make a consumer-friendly vehicle. We are glad the IDSA judges understood our mission."
