Creating Stylish Bikes for Serious Riders
Orro engineers, builds and tests performance bicycles in Ditchling, Sussex. Their carbon and aluminium road bikes are the expression of a dream: of speed, freedom and comfort on beautiful bikes.
Their bikes harness advanced material technologies, combined with class leading geometry and exclusive shape design. The resulting bikes are seriously fast and supremely comfortably. That’s the result of real world testing, creating a range of bikes that are made by cyclist for cyclists.
Orro’s quality of finish is something that is rarely seen in the cycle industry; it’s a product of forward thinking design and the highest quality paint. The ultimate expression is their Signature series; those frames painted by a craftsman in the heart of Sussex and finished with the finest components.
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 have attended every UKCE event since the very first one in the New Forest 2009. As UKCE has grown, SportivePhoto have done so too, with over 20 photographers working 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.
SportivePhoto now attend around 160 events a year from Cornwall to Dover to John O’Groats to deepest Wales. "We all 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".
