Bike care experts Muc-Off has announced its role as the official supplier of bike care products to Team Sky for 2014.
The new collaboration marks an exciting start to an important year for the Dorset based firm. After working with team mechanics and riders, Muc-Off has already developed an innovative new line of products to benefit the team riders.
Muc-Off says that lubricants developed especially to improve drivetrain efficiency are already with the team. The technology behind them will surely trickle down to consumer level if it proves succesful.
Team Sky’s Head of Technical Operations, Carsten Jeppesen, said: “This is an exciting new collaboration for Team Sky and we’re looking forward to working with Muc-Off. In our minds they produce the very best cleaning and maintenance products available so it’s great to have them on board. Keeping our equipment clean and well maintained is an integral part of bike racing and, as with all of our suppliers, we will work closely with them to help develop their range in the future.”
Alex Trimnell, MD of Muc-Off added : “We are thrilled to be working with Team Sky for 2014. As a business which thrives on research, development and innovation we have found a perfect fit with Team Sky. To work with a team that is willing to invest so much time and energy into developing new technologies is very exciting, innovation is truly at the core of every part of their operation.
"I personally find this fascinating to be a part of and no doubt there are some real performance gains to be found together. We will be working on exclusive technologies which will be developed closely with the team particularly focused around the drivechain and surface coatings. 2014 promises to be a defining year for Muc-Off and it also happens to be our 20th anniversary so working with Team Sky couldn’t be coming at a more exciting time for us!”
