Almada Work-E: Perfection in design

Since 1954, the iF Design Award has been one of the most important design honours in the world. It is awarded by the iF Design brand, the oldest independent design organization, which is renowned worldwide for its outstanding design services. The award stands for excellent designs and recognises outstanding designs across various disciplines including product, packaging, communication and service design, architecture and interior architecture, user experience (UX), and user interface (UI).

Our Bike Rack Almada Work-E won this year’s iF Design Award in the discipline “Product” and the category “Bicycles”. The Almada Work-E was evaluated by three jurors and impressed across the key criteria including idea, form, function, differentiation, and impact. It scored well in each of these categories, resulting in winning the award. Read more about the “Winners & iF Ranking” at


The Bike Rack Almada Work-E is XLC’s first bike rack specially designed for e-MTBs and revolutionises bike transportation. Its extra-wide wheelbase facilitates the secure transport of up to two e-bikes with ease. When not in use, the rack effortlessly folds down to luggage size, while the integrated wheels make it easy to transport it without lifting. One of our favorite features is the integrated work stand, which allows on-the-go repairs, wherever your journey takes you.

Jeroen van Eck - Ghost athlete and E-MTB world champion - also appreciates the special features of the Almada:

"The use of the bike rack really makes a step towards going on new adventures a lot easier. It's cool that you have the bike stand. So you can actually lube the chain. Especially with the e-bikes it's kind of a challenge."

Two optional accessories are available for even more convenient use of the Almada Work-E bike rack:

Loading Ramp

The loading ramp CC-X85 allows you to easily roll your bikes onto the rack without lifting. Once loaded, the ramp securely attaches to the rack using a fitting holder with a click mechanism.

Low-step Frame Adapter

Designed for bikes with low-step frames, the adapter CC-X61 ensures secure transportation. Positioned between the bike rack and the bike gripper, it secures the bike at the frame or seat post.
