The "Kristallen Fiets" (Dutch for "Crystal Bicycle") is a cycle racing award, created in 1992 by the Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws. The award is given annually to the Belgian rider considered to have performed the best over the year.

As of 2013, Johan Museeuw holds the record, winning the award five times. Only two cyclo-cross riders have managed to win the award, Paul Herygers and Sven Nys.

Other categories have been introduced at later stages, including the best young rider award in 1994, the best cycling manager award in 2000, the best domestique award in 2005 and the best female rider in 2016. The latter award is commonly referred to as the Crystal Drop of Sweat.
