Official chain supplier to GB Cycling Team

When the Great Britain Cycling Team identified problems with the chain it had been using, Renold was contacted to see if a solution could be devised for track cycling. Renold’s history and a mutual relationship with the University of Bristol was the catalyst for the partnership forming.The chain developed is based on the same technology platform as Renold’s Synergy brand industrial transmission chain.

Detlef Ragnitz, engineering director at Renold, says: “Elite athletes make extreme demands on the chain. We looked at our technology portfolio to see what might be a good fit. Our synergy technology platform is very strong and durable, it has inherently low friction and gives us long life in industrial applications. In Industrial applications, greater efficiency means reduced carbon footprint. In cycling, it means more speed.”
