Crank Brothers Innovation

Crank Brothers Egg Beater

Back in 2002 Crank Brothers innovated the high performance mountain biking scene with their 'egg beater' pedals. They proved that a fresh look at existing products that currently work, can lead to dramatic improvements. The egg beaters where lighter, simpler to produce and easier to use. They paid attention to detail with every area of the product including the packaging. They did suffer some reliability issues but they have great customer support which kept customers onboard. They later followed on in the same fashion with a range of other products. This has lead to Crank Brothers becoming a respected competitor on the mountain biking scene.
 
Crank Brothers provide proof and inspiration to show that designers should remove all preconceptions before designing a product. Don't be afraid to be different.

Updating a Classic, the DC100

This product has been around since 1948 and has only really had minor face lifts since. It has a strong base of followers all over the globe. So how do you design the replacement? This is Land Rovers first major attempt at the replacement and is due for production in 2015.

Land Rover have not only taken a good look at what makes the current product such a succcess but also to address its weaknesses, without taking away the charactor of this well loved product. It looks like it has the potential to do well, but whatever they do there will always be those who don't like change.
