Muc-Off has so many best-in-category products and the World Tour is the perfect environment in which we can demonstrate their efficacy and performance. By bringing these elite technical products to competitive and casual cyclists alike, Muc-Off and Team Bahrain McLaren aim to educate and inspire people to care for their cycling equipment as much as we care for this great sport.” – John Allert, Joint Managing Director at McLaren Pro Cycling
Back in 1991 Rex and Marilyn Trimnell got things started with X-Lite UK. After designing and manufacturing the world’s first twin crown bicycle fork, Rex created a perfectly pink spray to clean his kit. To make a long story short, Rex’s cleaner was the best thing since sliced bread, and it wasn’t long before word got out and Muc-Off was born.
Fast-forward to now and Muc-Off is now the go-to brand for top riders. And, in case you haven’t noticed, they do a bit more than our original pink cleaner these days.
