Yep, way back in 1991 Rex and Marilyn Trimnell got things started with X-Lite UK, designing and manufacturing the world’s first twin crown bicycle fork and the world’s lightest bar ends. But that wasn’t enough for Rex. As a man obsessed with detail, he was constantly frustrated at how long it took him to wash his bike. Rex set about understanding surfactant technologies and created a perfectly pink cleaner to care for his kit.
That was in 1994 at a time when most riders were cleaning their bikes with washing up liquid that contained lots of salt. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that water plus salt results in a lot of corrosion, so it was vital that Rex’s cleaner was eco friendly, highly effective and didn’t cause damage to any delicate finishes or components.
To cut a long story short, Rex’s formula was the best thing since sliced bread when it came to cleaning a bike, and it wasn’t long before word got out and Muc-Off Bike Cleaner was born.

After partnering with Team Wiggins, Muc-Off started by speed grading over 40 Shimano Dura-Ace chains on our specialist Muc-Off lab equipment. This was so we were able to hand select only the very fastest, most efficient chains to then be deep cleaned and treated with our groundbreaking new formula. This state of the art formula and treatment process completely pushes the boundaries of chain lube innovation and is designed specifically to keep friction to an absolute bare minimum. A highly advanced new military grade additive has been implemented along with some cutting edge extreme pressure additives, to create an incredibly fast chain lube treatment.
