The Muc-Off story starts in 1991 when Rex & Marilyn Trimnell founded X-Lite UK. Rex had a huge passion for engineering, innovation and anything to do with speed! The first bicycle product Rex designed and patented was the world’s first ‘Twin Crown’ bicycle fork, which was highly advanced for its time. Rex soon went on to design and manufacture the world’s lightest bar ends which we still make today!
In 1994 Rex saw a gap in the market for premium bicycle specific care products. This led him to set about creating X-Lite’s own cleaning product which was both safe to use on all parts of a bike and the environment, Rex put on his brand name thinking cap and Muc-Off was born! After several years, more and more riders were seeing the benefits of using Muc-Off and it started to become a big success. This simple to use and highly effective cleaner eventually grew into the comprehensive bicycle specific care range you see on this website.
For 2010/2011 the Muc-Off team have worked around the clock to not only enhance existing products but also design new products for your bikes, cars and electronics.
