Nikwax has a well-earned reputation for high-quality cleaning and waterproofing products, as well as a dedication to environmental and social sustainability. As we’re welcoming some of Nikwax’s products into the Halfords motorcycle cleaning range, we wanted to shine a spotlight on this innovative company.
Since 1977, Nikwax® has produced environmentally-friendly cleaning and waterproofing aftercare products. Throughout the years the range has grown to include products that can benefit users in activities such as climbing, cycling, fishing, camping and motorcycling amongst others.
The company has grown from its humble beginnings in founder Nick Brown’s bedroom, making the first Nikwax product, to currently distributing to over 50 nations around the world. Nikwax is now the global leader in environmentally safe aftercare and waterproofing solutions that extend the life and performance of technical footwear, clothing and equipment.
Nikwax is the only major aftercare company to have never used aerosols or fluorocarbons. The company’s products are all PFC-free, use advanced elastomer technology, are not tested on animals and are non-persistent in the environment.
Nikwax has won numerous accolades in recognition of its high-quality products alongside its dedication to environmental and social sustainability. The company’s environmental commitment and innovation continues, meaning that from the end of 2020, 100% of Nikwax bottles were made from post-consumer recycled plastic.
What should be an amazing, memorable motorcycle ride could easily turn into a nightmare if the weather conditions are poor and you end up tired, wet and miserable due to leaking clothing.
