Essay

'POP-PRODUCTS' is a growing collection of largely small-scale bicycle accessories, hubs, running wheels and various other components, specially designed for the light construction, tuning and high end sectors. A common feature of the collection is its technical and functional perfection, which shows in the reliability, stability and lightness of the products. Material savings have been realised, for example, through the milling of moulded contours with deliberate design intent. Careful attention has been paid to the smallest details. The design of the individual accessories has a credible air of quality, at the same time as making a thoroughly fresh impression.

As a bicycle dealer and importer of lightweight parts, Patrik Vögtli was unhappy about the quality of the bicycle components currently available on the market. So he showed no hesitation in setting up his own company. 'POP-PRODUCTS' offers a collection of top-quality cycle parts that are made in Switzerland.

Comments of the Nominators:
An exemplary and successful product collection, distinguished by the lightness, perfection and length of life of the products as well as by a clear and consistent design. 

Comments by the Jury:
'POP-PRODUCTS' are technical jewels, showing typically Swiss qualities - tinkered and tailored down to the last detail, and manufactured with maximum precision. The formal design of these high-end bicycle accessories was motivated by the need to reduce the weight, and the quality of the product is accentuated by the interestingly eye-catching choice of colours.
