Cyclowax was founded out of our passion for cycling and the desire to make things better.
Excited about the cleanliness of a chain treated with wax and the peace of mind that comes with it, Jakob started dreaming to build a product around it. Frederik and Philippe joined him with enthusiasm. Together they founded Cyclowax.

Every cyclist should be able to enjoy the peace of mind of a clean chain. Our ambition is to make cyclowaxing as accessible as possible.

You and l ride bicycles as a hobby or sport, but for others a bicycle can be a life changer. It gives people access to education, food, medical support and work in a non-polluting, safe and healthy way.
That’s why we donate to World Bicycle Relief. An organisation that provides bicycles to improve the lives of people in developing countries. Increased cycling makes cities and human settlements more inclusive and sustainable. (UN Sustainable Development Goals 11).
