Duck Smart: Official Cleaning Partners of the UK Arenacross Tour!


Howdy there festive fellas!  This week has ended amazingly for us as we are proud to say we are the Official Cleaning Partners of the epic Arenacross Tour and what is by far the best Offroad event experience in the country.

We have been working with our good buddies at E22 Sports for some time now; first up with the Pro Nationals series, and last year with the Pro Nationals Festival and it has always been a partnership that has worked well and we have enjoyed.  

So now, like Spinal Tap we will be loading up the Tour bus and hitting the many cities in the series and providing Waterless Wash Bays for the riders and teams using a combination of our Smart N Ezee Drywash and Detailer and our Mud Slider aftercare which should stop too much dirt sticking in the first place.

On top of that we will be providing the products, equipment and manpower to keep the Arena signage, promo vehicles, tuff blocks, start gates........ clean, shining and smelling fresh throughout. 



With some of the Top racers in the World banging bars for Arenacross supremacy and the cream of the FMX crop going skywards you would be a fool to miss this so give their website and view and sign yourselves up for some tickets by visiting the below:

http://www.arenacrossuk.com/ 

It wouldn't be right of us not to fire up our Comp machine and offer you the chance to win something Arenacross related would it?




So in true DS style we blagged a couple of tickets for the first round at Manchester 
on the 3rd January.  To be sure these are gonna be the hottest ticket of the new year and as always we will throw in a good stash of DS goodies.

To have the chance of entering the comp just head over to our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/ducksmart and give the relevant post a Like N Share and one lucky festive elf will be winging themselves and a buddy over to Manchester.

Take 2, the MXGP Treatment winners weekend!!

Ding Ding round 2 and all that, the MXGP Treatment winners weekend took place on the legendary slopes of the Asham Woods circuit near Frome which on memorable occasions in the past had been host to many an MX great.

This time round it was the Final round of the British Evo Series alongside the Sidecar Clubmans champs and the chance for our comp winner Martin Foster to get on the track and put pay to the gremlins which halted his winners weekend after a practice malfunction that couldn't be rectified last time round.

With the well wishing, back slapping and handing over of the race kit, pit board, and other goodies out of the way last time round this time it was down to business & the serious stuff of the racing.   C'mon can you imagine that from us??  Nay chance, full on banter, laughs and some old school male bonding was the order of the weekend, ah yeah and Martin surpassed his half a lap of practice last time and hit home with a full 3 laps and then 3 races to follow.

Team mechanic Steve (who has known and been going to MX with Martin since they were at college) used his pit board to full advantage and as well as some well informed motivational snippets, there was also a customary amount of MX cliches and witty remarks aplenty for good measure.

On board his immaculate 1989 YZ125 Martin looked trick in his Thor race kit (thanks Madison), and we kept his bike looking tip top throughout without water, using our Smart N Ezee Waterless Cleaner & polish , Mud Slider for under the mudguards and some Kit Clean on his boots.  

With the suitably retro and legendary Oil brand, Bel-Ray (cheers Rapid) on board as a partner the machine was prepped and singing like a 2 smoker banshee should when racing a flat out on an old school beast of a track, and Martin was greeted by whoops & hollers from Team Duck on each lap.  (I know your gonna ask this but nope there wasn't any girls on this occasion, they were booked and on their way for the first time but couldn't make it for attempt number 2).





So with two weekend's to savour did the comp winner Martin enjoy his prize?  Well your gonna have to wait a little bit until the vid comes out, but yep we reckon he did, and one things for sure we did and without doubt Martin and his best mate Steve were worthy winners of the competition and now classed as good friends rather than acquaintances.



We would like to say a big thanks to Nick from the Frome Motorcycle Club and his team for being so welcoming as well as Kevin Spencer of the British Evo Series who has been such a helpful host and great help throughout the two weekends. 

Also massive thanks to our distributors Madison and Rapid for supporting this weekend alongside Thor, Bel-Ray, Torc1 and Risk Racing as well as our friends at Freestyle Extreme and Print Shop Express.  Also all of the members of Team DS who sent in their good luck messages.

Keep your eyes out from October 2014 for next years competition and for your chance to enter and win!

If you missed it last time round here is the Good Luck messages we received for Martin.

MXGP Treatment comp winners weekend - Take 1!

Well our 2014 MXGP Treatment competition winners weekend didn't go quite to plan although our winner Martin Foster and our team still had a great weekend and it all means we get to do it all over again.

This our worthy winner was 45 year old Martin who races in EVO meetings aboard his immaculate 1989 YZ125.  His email entry won us over explaining how he rocks up at meetings with his car, his bike on a trailer with his chief mechanic and friend from College Steve in tow. Yep old Skool.

The weekend kicked off for Martin with a suprise email containing good luck messages from DS racers and riders from all sports including legendary 3 X World MX Champion Dave Thorpe and current British MXGP star Tommy Searle.  (click the link on the side to view the vid)


The race meeting he was competing in was the 6th round of the British Evo Series at the Ham Lane track near Petersfield in Hampshire and by the time Martin had turned up the Duck Truck and DS set up was in place with dinner on the go.

Before the evening was out our winner was presented by a pimped up Thor race kit courtesy of our distibutors Madison with the printing done by our friends at Freestyle Extreme.

The Duck Truck was a bit of a squeeze but we all hit the bunks from there ready for a day of battle the next morning.    With the sun out, mechanic Steve was hooked up with a trick one off Pit board, (again thanks to our buddies at Freestyle Extreme and James at Print Shop Express), and the bike was prepped and lubed thanks to products supplied by Bel-Ray & Rapid Distribution.

All we thought was set to be an epic day as we headed down the track to watch Martin cruise round the track for his practice laps.  That was when the aforementioned YZ125 decided it was gonna have none of it and half way round lap 1 it stuttered to a halt, never to start again for the rest of the day.  Hours of frantic efforts to get the old girl back in the game were to no avail & with afternoon tea served up by our butler it was time to call it a day but not before Martin was given further goodies from Mark at Rapid Distribution in Torc1 grips, Bel-Ray lube and Risk Racing palm protectors on top of a large stash of DS cleaning goodies to keep the stubborn ol YZ gleaming.

So no video highlights package this time we are afraid but never fear we couldn't let Martin go without a full weekend of GP treatment so we will try again in a few weeks time and report back then.

A massive thanks to our distributors Madison and Rapid for supporting this weekend alongside Thor, Bel-Ray, Torc1 and Risk Racing as well as our friends at Freestyle Extreme and Print Shop Express.  Also all of the members of Team DS who sent in their good luck messages.

THE MOTORCYCLE CLEAN, PREEN & SHEEN POWER TEAM!



Its's been a long time coming but our famous duo of our Foaming Earth Mover Bike Cleaner and the versatile Detailer/Polish/drywash Smart n Ezee have been paired together in our latest combo offer.

This couple go back a long way, even before the times of Mud Slider and work awesome as a Wash, polish & protect combination, and like our other offers they are going out together with a Micro Fibre cloth for just £16 inc Postage and Packaging.

This duo is awesome for Road Motorcycles but does the trick on Offroaders too.

Start off by rinsing off any loose dirt and grime with clean water, a brush or sponge. Then apply a bit of Earth Mover foaming power by spraying the purple stuff onto your bike using the unique foaming nozzle. Use a damp clean sponge to agitate any further dirty areas and foam the whole machine getting into all of the tricky areas, over spokes......... (Earth Mover contains Aluminium Brighteners so great on wheels and any other metallic surfaces, bringing them back to new within 3 or 4 cleans) The foamier the better as this gives the Earth Mover a better contact time with the dirt, breaking it down in front of your very eyes. Next up rinse the bike with water again.

Now its time to bring out the Smart N Ezee. Lightly spray the product over the area you want to Polish/detail and rub it in with a Micro Fibre cloth. Don't get too heavy handed though as you won't need too much to bring out an awesome natural shine on your bike. As well as shining up your bike it also leaves a water repelling protective coat which means your bike is not only protected from the elements but will also be easier to clean next time round.

Smart N Ezee can also be used as a dry wash if your bike isnt that dirty, and as before its as simple as spray on and wipe over with a Micro Fibre cloth. In fact Smart N Ezee does so much shizzle I could be here all day listing all what it does but here's a few suggestions for starters.

Its great for cleaning your Helmet, or as a water repelling Visor clean, superb for Matt black finishes, stainless steel, titanium, carbon fibre, dashboards, showers, chrome, mirrors and especially on windscreens as any rain water beads off.

So get your hands on this tidy little offer as it is only available for a limited time!

2014 4X Pro Tour Round1 Race Report from Team DS's Lewis Lacey!

We are proud to work closely with all of our sponsored and supported racers, riders and drivers and get to know them really well.  Lewis was one of our early members of Team DS but last year was hit by injuries which pretty much took him out of action for the year.  It has been a tough ride back to fitness for Lewis but has shown how determined and talented he is with two awesome results in as many weeks starting with a 2nd in the British 4X round at Afan and then last week an amazing podium spot at the 4x Pro Tour.

Here's his race report.  Also give him a follow on twitter @lewislacey

Round 1 - 4X pro tour.
Sunny meadow Poland
It’s been a long year since I was last here, and I broke the end of the plate that was in my shoulder in the first turn. As ever always amazed with how rad the track looks. This year the guys put a monster jump at the end of the last straight.
Went up for a track walk, to see what was what and to see where it all went wrong for me last year, Built the bikes, time for a play. I wanted to have some fun, then on to the more serious stuff later (lines and all that shit)
Feeling fine and chilled, riding and track speed all good (could always do with a bit more) on to XXL schnitzel that’s why we come to Poland.
Saturday,
Qualifying relaxed and feeling fine, maybe a bit too relaxed as I cruised my run I was gutted with myself, but turned out I qualified 8th
A lot better than I thought, knowing I had a bit more in the tank was nice.
Rd1 there was only three of us on the gate these ones feel a bit unkind when only on person goes out, on to the next one.
Rd2 made a good gate the first straight seemed to feel effortless and a smooth run down saw me take the first spot.
Rd3 now things were heating up, with Slavik and Nate dogg on the gate I knew I needed to make a good start, gate dropped best start so far finding myself level with Slavik over the first two jumps following him closely in to turn one chasing him down making sure I could keep that 2nd spot from Nate dogg.
Rd4 it’s getting harder every time Slavik and Beaumont again we all gated together super tight first straight as I just squeezed Beaumont into turn one it was again chasing Slavik down making sure Beaumont stayed behind, I was clear second in the semi making my first Pro tour main final.
Final Slavik Prokop Slavik Lacey it goes without saying what this race was going to be, I took gate 3 (wanting 4) Prokop 4 as the Slavik’s lined up on the inside got a good snap all banging bars down first straight it was tight. After getting a bit of a slap from Prokop sending me slightly sideways into turn one leaving Thomas and Prokop to lead in 1 and 2 me in 3rd not knowing where Hannes was, bang he hit me right in the same spot as it all went wrong last year, taking my front wheel, causing me to almost hit the fence. That was it my final was over, I was never going to pull those power houses back. I sat down and took fourth place well happy with the night looking forward to round 2 Fortbill, love that first straight.
Props to the boy Master Lucas Cryer.

All of our Bike and Car Cleaners Made in Britain & proud of it!

We have been featured in this months Bike Biz magazine which focusses on those brands that are "Made in Britain".  We are very proud that this is the case for us, and in fact we do pretty much everything in house from bottling, labelling, mixing, and creating all of our own products, which also means we have the flexibility to always be growing our product range to fit the needs of all you challenging bunch of dudes, and the extreme conditions you throw yourself and your wheels through.

Here's the full article, which may also enlighten you more about us and how we roll!

Duck Smart, Made in Britain and Proud of it!

Duck Smart is a relatively new company in terms of cleaning products for the cycle market, but as a team they have been manufacturing and creating their own products for the commercial sector for over twenty years.

Through the companies owner Gary Bennett, and chief Chemist Graham Wood, for the Duck Smart range of products they have diverted away from their commercial roots and created a range of PH Neutral, foaming, non caustic cleaners which has certainly got the industry talking both for the effectiveness of the products, and the sweet smells used in them. On top of all of this they proudly stake claim to the fact that all of their products are manufactured in the UK at their headquarters in Benfleet in Essex by themselves.

Gary tells us more “For us its a natural thing for us to create all of our products in house as that is what we have always done. As well as this, we purchase all of the other materials, like boxes, bottles and labels all from local suppliers within a 20 mile radius, in fact quite a lot of what we use is bought using the other companies on the Trading Estate where we are based”.

“Because we manufacture everything ourselves it means that we can play around with colors, smells, different types of products, and raw materials so we can continually develop and improve our range. We have 3 or 4 new products pretty much ready to be launched and another 3 we are working on now. We like to always work with our teams, riders and dealers when we develop new products, so that we get honest feedback from all types of people and then we amend the products from there. Making everything in house means this process is a lot quicker and easier than outsourcing it, and also most outsourced products are ready made formulas with just a few things changed. I suppose some of our disadvantages are also our advantages in some respects. Graham our chemist likes everything to be perfect and more importantly safe for both the consumer and the bike, and as much as we can environmentally friendly, but this also means that our products contain more raw materials and elements to them. For instance our Foaming Earth Mover Bike Cleaner is a truly unique product which took two years to develop, and is made up of Softeners and detergents and contains 10 raw materials so this means it is more expensive to produce than the more common Hard surface cleaner based products which can be sourced from outside of the UK and can be watered down and very cheap. So I suppose our disadvantage is cost, but that is also an advantage to our customers who receive a product that they know they can trust on their bike and components, and has been thoroughly tested by experts in the UK. Again some of the bottles and containers we used could be purchased from abroad for cheaper but we have always work well with our current provider who sell us bottles made from recycled plastics so it is something we would not like to compromise on if we can help it. Being local they also help us out with smaller quantities if we are running short so it means our turn around is a lot quicker and means less space is taken with storage as if you purchased abroad you have to buy larger quantities”.



The innovative team at Duck Smart are always working hard to develop the next range of cleaners and with much of their Marketing being based around wash bays and letting people try their products. With their hands on, friendly approach we are sure you will be finding out about their products for yourself very soon, all of which are proudly stamped with Made in Britain on them.

THE CYCLE CLEAN TAG TEAM!


As a treat we have combined the extremely hard working duo of our Famous Foaming Earth Mover Bike Cleaner and our brand new Banana smelling Dry Wash/detailer Bike Ezee in a neat little offer for just £16 inc P & P. On top of that we will also chuck in one of our Micro Fibre cloths so you can polish up your bicycle to you hearts content.

This combo covers you in two ways. If your bike is literally caked in it, you can go all out Foam with the Earth Mover. First up, rinse and brush off any loose and clumpy mud with water and a brush. Then apply Earth Mover all over your bike using the foam nozzle. Use a damp sponge to agigate any dirt, and foam your bike the whole way through. The foamier the better as this gives the Earth Mover a better contact time with the dirt, breaking it down in front of your very eyes. Next up rinse the bike with water again.

You can now apply Bike Ezee by applying a light spray on the area you want to polish up and rub it in with the Micro Fibre cloth. Bike Ezee will give your bike a long lasting natural shine and a water repelling protective coating making your bike easier to clean next time round. Another bonus is that your bike will smell of Bananas with a hint of chocolate, so great if you keep it in the house.

Option 2 if your bike only has a bit of road dirt or light dirt on it and you don't want to get the hose out. In this instance you are in safe hands with Bike Ezee as a lone wolf as it also works as a Dry Wash/Waterless cleaner....... It's as simple as spray lightly on the bike, and wipe with the Micro Fibre cloth which will collect the dirt, while the product lays itself over your bike parts giving it that shine and protection.

So over to you! This offer is only available for a limited time so get yourself signed up!

Team Green set to shine with Ducksmart!

After some injury set backs during the Arenacross UK tour, the Team Green Kawasaki UK line up of Dylan Woodcock (Big Wheel 85), Jed Etchells (Big Wheel 85) and Lewis Hall (Small Wheel 85) are now gearing towards championship success outdoor and looking to shine in 2014.

So too will their KX85 weapons of choice after Team Green and Duck Smart cleaning products agreed a sponsor partnership for 2014. Team manager Jeff Perrett and Paul Oughton from Ducksmart finalised the deal at last year's International Dirt Bike show that will see all of the Team Green riders use 

Ducksmart’s extensive range of cleaning products for motorcycles and clothing.

It’s yet another cool, young brand for Team Green to have on board and understandably the team are delighted as Jeff explains; “As far as proactive companies go in UK motocross Duck Smart have been one that has caught our eye over the past couple of years. Their products are superb and are definitely going to make our life easier in keeping everything look sharp, which of course is a huge part of running a high profile team and growing it. We have brilliant support from Monster Energy and brands like Thor, Maxxis, Motorex and many more, all of which are huge brands and it has to look right. Duck Smart products are going to help us present the right image and we’re thankful and really appreciate their involvement with Team Green. We’re also looking forward to working with them on developing their products further.”

Paul Oughton is equally as pleased as he sees the direction that Team Green is heading. "Having worked with young Dylan before we have kept a keen eye on how Team Green has been developing and there is so much enthusiasm about the team, and such an impressive set up which we can only see growing in the future. The lads are a great bunch, and under the watchful eye of master Perrett I think the profile of the team is going to be huge and we are very proud to be part of it and help to keep both bikes and riders immaculate every time they race with our range of products. As with all of our partners, we like to work closely with them so we are also looking forward to working on the Next Generation of our cleaning products with Team Green in 2014 and into the future”.

An experiment on Duck Smart's Kit clean!

With its optical brighteners and unique little Duck Pad our Kit Clean Micro Kit has proved hugely popular since its launch as a Micro Kit last year.

So we put it to the test at the Red Bull Pro Nationals on our ground in and stained Wash Bay Karcher banners with months of dirt, grime and grease in them.  Watch the vid on the right to see the results.

Kit cleans uses are pretty varied but include, race shirts, race trousers, helmet linings, goggle straps, boots, gloves.... basically the optical brighteners and detergents in it bring out the colours and combat stains.



Here's how it works on your race kit!

Duck Smart and Mahi Kawasaki to bling up the Supersport grid!

One of our favourite team's to work with in 2013, and who we are glad to be back with in 2014, are the guys from the Mahi Kawsaki Racing team who strut their stuff all over the globe in the World Supersport Championships.
Turkish racer Kenan Sofuoglu pushed eventual champion Sam Lowes all of the way to the title last season coming 2nd in the series, with Mahi team mate Fabien Foret 3rd, but in 2014 you can be sure they are looking to land the top spot of the podium.
Although a well honed, fully focussed, professional racing team the Mahi team are an awesome bunch to work with, even getting in on the act on the #duckfaceselfies.  On top of that they give us honest and professional feedback on all of our products and found uses for them that we didn't realise existed.
Such is our great relationship with them we have teamed up on an awesome comp which is being launched very shortly so keep your eyes out as this is something you are darn sure you are going to wanna win!
Below is the PR from our friends at Mahi!

Mahi Kawasaki Racing are once again teaming up with Duck Smart to bring you the shiniest bikes on the 2014 World Superbike grid!
Duck Smart produce a growing range of innovative, foaming and sweet smelling cleaning products, which are all manufactured, bottled and labelled in house at their HQ in Essex. Some of the team’s favourites include the famous Earth Mover Bike Cleaner, Smart N Ezee detailer, Rim Bling wheel cleaner and Wagon Wash vehicle cleaner. All of their products are non caustic, PH Neutral and biodegradable and have proved popular with our riders and mechanics alike with the Duck Smart team being helpful and hands on when it comes to coming up with cleaning solutions for the bikes and transport vehicles.

The team are carrying out the final preparation on the bikes (with the help of Duck Smart, of course!) before loading up the flight crates. Anticipation is building for the Official SBK Test and the season opener at Phillip Island on the 23rd February. After a positive Portimao Test, both riders and the crew are quietly confident about the forthcoming trip down under.

Launching Bike Ezee, our all new Waterless Bike Cleaner!


It's been a little while in coming but we are stoked to announce that our brand new product Bike Ezee is now available on both our webshop and for dealers via our Distributors Madison.

You can throw any phrase you want at Bike Ezee but a few that do the job are, Waterless Bike Cleaner, a drywash, cycle detailer, protect and shine......

Bike Ezee removes light dirt, grease, grime and dust and is perfect for the roadie and urban cyclists, or those who like to give their bike an extra zap of shine after they have used Earth Mover to wash their mud caked cycle.

It uses a pretty simple process of spray on and wipe off with a Micro Fibre cloth, and as well as giving your bike an almighty shine it also gives your frame a protective water repelling coat.

It couldn't go without one of the famous Duck Smart smells so after testing many scents with the best noses in the industry, Bike Ezee has been given a Banana's and chocolate smell.

Also it contains no PTFE's so its safe to use on your disc brakes and any other parts of your bike.

So if you wanna go waterless when you next clean, give Bike Ezee a go.
