4iiii INNOVATIONS INC. ANNOUNCES CERVELO CO-FOUNDER, PHIL WHITE, AS ACTING PRESIDENT

Cochrane, AB Canada, May 20, 2020 1300H GMT
4iiii Innovations Inc. welcomes Phil White as its Acting President to fortify the company’s growth
trajectory as an innovation leader in sports electronics and sensor technology. White was the co-
founder of Cervélo Cycles, a global brand well known for innovation that grew from a school basement
project to be the world leader in road and triathlon. Upon the sale of Cervélo Cycles to Pon Holdings,
White assumed the role of Chief Innovation Officer at Pon.Bike until 2017. Most recently, White has
been providing expertise and mentorship as a 4iiii Board member.

Kip Fyfe, 4iiii CEO, and the Board of Directors are delighted to welcome Phil. Kip added “Despite this
challenging economic climate, 4iiii is seeing solid demand for trainers and power meters. Phil
understands the need to support the current demand and also plan for our innovation & growth. His
unique blend of strengths in design, manufacturing and marketing make him the ideal candidate to lead
the team over the next quarter and potentially beyond.”

“I’m excited to be involved with an innovative company and a fantastic team” White commented. “4iiii
is a leader in sport electronics and is a major player in indoor cycling and fitness. 4iiii equipped bikes
have won Paris-Roubaix and stages of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia. This year, André Greipel
and the Israel Start-Up Nation UCI Men’s World Tour team as well as the Tibco SVB UCI Women’s
World Tour team are riding with 4iiii power meters. Pro cyclists choose 4iiii PRECISION Powermeters
because they are the most reliable and their proprietary tri-axial strain gauges make them more
accurate than anyone else.”

4iiii is well positioned to support both dealers and consumers, even with the increased demand for
indoor training and virtual racing in today’s COVID-19 reality. White adds “I was really impressed how
the team immediately adapted to COVID-19 by moving most people to work from home and creating
isolated assembly and quality stations in the factory to keep production going. These quick, innovative
changes have allowed the company to keep our dealers and the 4iiii.com store well stocked as
demand has skyrocketed for our trainers and power meters.”

About Phil White
Phil White co-founded Cervélo Cycles with Gerard Vroomen in 1996. White and Vroomen took
Cervélo from a basement school project to the pinnacle of triathlon and road cycling. Cervélo became
the engineering leader in the bike industry and helped redefine cycling. They designed the most
popular triathlon bike in the world (based on the Ironman bike count) and the most popular bike in pro
cycling (based on CyclingNews reader polls). Tour Magazine recognized Cervélo as the continued
engineering leader when they found it was the fastest bike in every category that they tested (aero
road, lightweight road, and TT/triathlon). They were also the first bike company in decades to drive
the sport forward by starting their own pro cycling team, the Cervélo Test Team. After Cervélo’s sale
to Pon Holdings in 2012, Phil assumed the role of Chief Innovation Officer and remained as the non-
executive Chairman of Cervélo. Since 2017, White has pursued adventures in innovation, mobility
and performance. Phil believes in the power of entrepreneurship, innovation, and design and enjoys
sharing his expertise and knowledge as a guest speaker and lecturer at universities and colleges
throughout the world. He is a member of the 4iiii external Board of Directors.

The 4iiii Powermeter That Finds Your Bike

Monterey, California, U.S.A (April 2, 2019) – 4iiii Innovations Inc., together with Chipolo d.o.o., announce their next cutting-edge innovation, a free bike tracking feature to be integrated onto a bike which can be experienced at the 2019 Sea Otter Classic. Chipolo tracking is now offered as a standard feature in the 4iiii PRECISION Powermeter family.

“At 4iiii, we continue with our commitment to add value to our products long after they have been purchased and we strive to protect the investment of our Triiiibe” says Eric Gerstenbuher, 4iiii Managing Director. Effective April 10th, all models in the 4iiii PRECISION family of powermeters, including PRECISION and Podiiiium models, will be empowered to find your bike, fight theft, and grow the tracking network.

“…I think the concept is fascinating. No, this won’t stop a thief from stealing your bike (likely out of your home or perhaps while you have a coffee at a café post-ride), but it will give you one more tool in your arsenal for getting back your bike. And I could see if you were looking at similar power meters options…this could push you over the edge towards 4iiii.”DC Rainmaker, CES, 2019.

The tracking functionality will show the last known location of your bike within the refreshed 4iiii app. To activate the tracking for a lost bike, riders will mark the powermeter as ‘lost’, then, any 4iiii or Chipolo apps on a smartphone in Bluetooth® range, will unobtrusively ‘ping’ the powermeter on the bike. When a phone successfully communicates with the lost bike it will send this location to the owner.

“Our mission is to give every product the power to be found. And with integrating Chipolo technology into the 4iiii Powermeter we are going one step forward. Chipolo is now available to integrators through the obvıous. app store to integrate into many diverse products.” said Chipolo CTO, Jure Zdovc.

The refreshed 4iiii app leverages the obvıous. platform allowing 4iiii to release future-proofed products that accept new features and functionality by enabling riders to simply upgrade their current product. In addition to the tracking capability, the 4iiii app will continue to offer powermeter pairing and unpairing, work-out metrics, Viiiiva passthrough and filesave, over the air updates, customization of devices and more. The refreshed app is currently available as iOS only, but will be released via Android in the near future. The new Chipolo tracking feature will work on all previously purchased 4iiii Powermeters.

The Chipolo tracking feature on 4iiii Powermeters is enabled via the refreshed 4iiii app which will be available April 2nd through the iOS App Store with the tracking feature available on April 10th to all 4iiii customers, present and future, at no cost.

4iiii Issues Challenge to Power Meter Industry

Boulder, CO: 4iiii Innovations Inc. requested a study to independently test the accuracy of the PRECISION Powermeter technology at the Locomotion Lab. The complete results of the tests have been released in a white paper written by Rodger Kram, Ph.D. and Wouter Hoogkramer, Ph.D.,  both of the University of Colorado, Boulder and Scott Cooper, P.h.D. of 4iiii Innovations Inc.

These third-party test results prove the accuracy of PRECISION and Podiiiium PRECISION Powermeters.

The tests included multiple PRECISION PRO and Podiiiium Pro PRECISION Powermeters on alloy and carbon cranks being compared to power calculated by a bike treadmill for outputs ranging from 150-350W. Results showed an average error in power reading of 1.58% for PRECISION PRO Powermeters and 0.84% for Podiiiium Pro PRECISION Powermeters on carbon cranks.

Following the results of the test, 4iiii CEO Kip Fyfe issued a challenge to the rest of the cycling power meter industry. “We’d like to establish a new gold standard for testing in the industry,” said Fyfe. “We challenge all of our competitors to have their technology independently tested by the lab in Boulder.”
