Kempele, Finland, 11th Sept 2006
From over 200 entrants, the CS400 cycling computer from Polar impressed the judges with its innovative design to win a prestigious Eurobike IF Design Award at the 2006 exhibition held in Friedrichshafen, Germany. Debuted at the show, the CS400 combines measurements from the bike, body and environment with ProTrainer 5™ software for Windows® to provide a complete training solution for serious cyclists looking to achieve their best.
Measuring speed, distance, cadence, altitude, incline and ECG accurate heart rate, the CS400 cycling computer provides a huge amount of data for real-time feedback and post-training analysis to enable optimal training and race performance. Minimizing the risk of overtraining, the CS400 also incorporates Polar's unique OwnZone® feature which measures heart rate variability during a controlled warm-up to define the most beneficial training intensity based on current physical condition.
"Our engineers and physiologists worked hand in hand with leading cyclists and coaches throughout the design and development of the CS400 training system." says Jörgen Michelsson, Vice President of Marketing at Polar "Winning this award is a great acknowledgement to the achievement of all those involved in taking the CS400 from concept through to final product."
"The EUROBIKE AWARD is one of the bike sector's leading design prizes, and design is a key differentiation factor for the consumer. Members of the cycling industry need to pay more attention to this prize and face up to the competition with their own products." Markus Storck, Jury Chairperson (Storck Bicycle GmbH, Bad Camberg).
