Hard fietsen is niet alleen een kwestie van hard trainen!

Cycling fast is not just a matter of training hard!

We train a lot and hard to get the best out of ourselves during a competition, but do we also get the best out of our equipment?

We train a lot and hard to get the best out of ourselves during a competition, but do we also get the best out of our equipment? There are often still gains to be made here for many athletes. 

There is one hidden force that affects our speed and efficiency when cycling: friction . Every moving part is affected by friction from your bottom bracket to the chain to the derailleur wheels. That's why it's worth taking a closer look and finding out where we can gain from this. This could be the difference between winning and losing.

How can you reduce friction?
The CeramicSpeed ​​technology focuses on reducing friction. These products simply help you cycle faster with less energy. Sounds good right? With CeramicSpeed ​​products such as UFO DRIP to lubricate your chain, you can quickly save about 2 to 4 watts. That's a nice bonus. 

Naturally, you start by thoroughly cleaning your chain and derailleur with UFO CLEAN . Its unique properties dissolve wax from both the internal parts of the chain and all chain link surfaces. UFO Clean is designed and formulated to clean and prepare chains for a new wax coating.

When your chain is clean and dry, you can lubricate the chain with UFO DRIP . Apply the UFO DRIP to the chain in two complete turns of the chain . Let it dry overnight and do not wipe the wax off. 

When your chain is “waxed”, you will benefit from it for approximately 300 km. After this (or sooner if the chain is very dirty) simply clean and wax the knowledge again. This is a pretty simple way to save watts. 

Do you want to go one step further?
Then choose the OSPW system. This is the latest innovation from CeramicSpeed. Upgrading your rear derailleur to the CeramicSpeed ​​Oversize Pulley Wheel system completes the optimization. This system ensures less friction, improved durability and energy savings.

Thanks to the unique design and components, the oversized derailleur wheels reduce friction in the derailleur by 40-60% compared to the high-quality derailleur wheels commonly used in the bicycle industry. So there is considerable profit to be made here too. 

Go for oversized and experience the following benefits:

  • Energy savings start from 2.4 watts
  • 60% less friction
  • Proven design
  • Made from lightweight materials
  • Unparalleled low friction and longer life
  • Developed and handmade in Denmark

So with a few simple steps you have already achieved a gain of almost 10 watts. These are the "quick wins" that every triathlete wants.
