POOLE 14.02.2020, FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — 25 years ago Muc-Off engineered the first ever bottle of bike-specific wash. Since then, challenging the status quo and creating the best products for those who love riding on two wheels is what defines the Muc-Off ethos. The same approach has been taken in the development of their new technical apparel and rider gloves; designed from the ground up for riders in search of adventures, built to handle everything the elements and the trail can throw at them.
Our Technical Apparel range and Rider Gloves were influenced by our drive to create designs that are focussed on high-performance and endurance. Our aim was to create something aesthetically pleasing that delivers the ultimate performance for any adventure and we’re incredibly proud of the end result – Alex Trimnell, CEO at Muc-Off
Having taken this concept over the past 3 years all the way from rough sketches through to real life product testing, fitting refinements and full production we’ve achieved something we’re really excited about. – Andrew Syme, Product Design Manager at Muc-Off

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.
