Wattbike - The World’s Best Indoor Bike

Developed in partnership with British Cycling to meet the needs of Performance Director Peter Keen, the Wattbike has quickly become the go-to indoor bike for the world’s top athletes.

Born from a need for a robust indoor bike that could meet the demands of athletes, sport scientists and coaches alike, the Wattbike delivers accurate, reliable and repeatable training feedback ensuring every test or training session can be monitored with absolute precision.

The Performance Monitor records over 40 parameters 100 times per second including power, heart rate and cadence all with scientific accuracy. The Power output of the Wattbike has been independently verified to be accurate to within 2%. The factory calibration and high sample rate allow the Wattbike to produce the unique technical display, the Polar View.

The Polar View displays live pedalling technique feedback enabling the rider to make adjustments and improvements in real time to maximise pedalling efficiency and get more power for less effort.

With in-built tests ranging from short 6 seconds power tests, 3 minute aerobic tests, ramp tests and a 20 minute threshold test the Wattbike is the perfect tool for monitor athletes performance whatever their goals.

The live power and heart rate zone data guarantee that every pedal revolution is delivered at the correct intensity allowing riders to maximise training time and when combined with the smartphone app, track every session in minute detail.

The dual air and magnetic resistance provides a real ride feel creating the most realistic feel of any indoor bike or turbo trainer and the fully adjustable setup ensures all riders can get into their perfect riding position.

The technology doesn’t stop with the bike. The smartphone powerapp records data directly from the Performance monitor and saves your session to the cloud where you can analyse your workout in minute details on the powerhub.

The Wattbike is the most complete training package available today. Visit the website and find out how you can start training smarter and riding faster today.


Muc-Off

muc-off.com

At Muc-Off we’re big into being active. Whether it’s on a mountain, trail or at the skate park, we just love to be outside and going big. We’re obsessed with making the most innovative care products around to keep you and your toys running at their maximum and making them look like new when you’re done!

So what’s the story? It all started way back when Right Said Fred were too sexy for their shirts and Downhill wasn’t even part of the World Cup. Yep, way 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 2012 and Muc-Off is now the go-to brand for top riders and racers from the likes of Steve Peat to Force India. And, in case you haven’t noticed, we do a bit more than our original pink cleaner these days.

You’re probably thinking, “That’s nice. These guys clean bikes and cars,” but the truth is we do a whole lot more than that. We also love to ride and drive and we’re obsessed with anything that involves speed or pushing our selves and our kit to the limit. We’re always cooking up something new, and all our ideas are developed in our in-house, state-of-the-art R&D Center by Rex’s son, Alex, our MD (mad developer). After he's cooked up something new, it's tested by our in-house boffins and riders to ensure every Muc-Off product is simply the finest in the world. Once we're happy, the formula will go out to our pro teams for their final feedback. Only then will we put the product into production for the world to enjoy.

So, if you’re smart, (and we know you are because you’re on our website!), you’ll be sure to keep an eye out for the latest Muc-Off kit. We currently have an insanely busy R&D program so please keep checking to see the exciting products we're about to launch!


SportivePhoto

sportivephoto.com

We have attended every UKCE event since the very first one in the New Forest 2009. As UKCE has grown we too have done so, now with over 20 photographers working for us throughout the country capturing your day out in the saddle.

SportivePhoto was started in 2006 by Phil O’Connor who, after spending 25 years as a professional sport photographer, wanted to move away from the media world he had worked in and use the skills developed during this time to photograph amateur cyclists enjoying a pastime that had always been his passion as well.

We now attend around 160 events a year from Cornwall to Dover to John O’Groats to deepest Wales. We live and cycle in a wonderful country and it is always our challenge to try and capture the riders in a way that reminds them of the day out they have just enjoyed, as such we spend a lot of time studying routes to try and get the best out of them photographically. Our team of hard working photographers are sat at the roadside for anything up 8 hours or more capturing your day out so please give them a wave when you see them.
