THE BOLD UNPLUGGED WINS THE DESIGN & INNOVATION AWARD 2019
Following up on the Linkin Trail’s 2016 Design and Innovation Award the Bold Unplugged takes home the same title in 2019. The Unplugged already took home the award for best mountain bike at the Eurobike. The Design and Innovation Award is the second renowned international Award this bike wins.
The jury’s’ verdict:
This Bold is radical. Not only in terms of system integration but also with its adjustable geometry the Swiss are far from mainstream. The shock is entirely hidden inside the full carbon frame. This is an optical revolution. With up to 180mm of travel up front and 164mm in the back of the 29er the unplugged packs a punch. The extremely long and slack bike combines straight-line speed with agility and an excellent ride quality. This is a bike for experts. Even with its downhill strength its climbing abilities are surprisingly good for this category of bikes. The Unplugged is an excellent addition to Bold’s range with outstandingly clean design and enormous performance.
