Some of the 6,000 bikes from Pelotonia in Columbus, Ohio.
OdorBalance® is a proud supporter of Aaron Eader and his team who have raised over $70,000 for Pelotonia 2012!
This money goes to essential research which is conducted at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. The goal is to help improve lives through innovation in research with the ultimate goal of curing cancer. Pelotonia is very proud that 100% of all money raised directly supports cancer research at the Ohio State University.
Aaron and 6,000 other cyclists pedaled 180 miles August 11 & 12 raising over 10 million dollars. Riding about 15 hours combined over the two days Aaron said “it was a privilege to take part in such a great cause”. Volunteers included many from all walks of life.
Here at OdorBalance our hearts go out to all that participated. If you are interested in supporting Pelotionia along with OdorBalance, please go to http://pelotonia.org/donate/ and search for the rider Aaron Eader
Whether you are bike riding for fitness, fun, or sport, cyclists know one thing for sure – that stinky smell in your cycling jerseys, gloves, helmets, arm and knee warmers, and footwear eventually catches up to you. You thought you did a good job cleaning it or drying it but ten minutes into your next ride, you feel sorry for the guy or gal riding behind you. So how do you remove odor in bicycling gear and apparel?
High performance cycling apparel can trap odor-causing pollutants in tightly woven synthetic fabrics. Foul smells are bi-products of bacteria, soil and sweat clogging up pores in high performance cycling apparel and equipment. These synthetic textiles are designed to wick away moisture from your body but when they are not cleaned and dried properly the stench gets trapped. So here is the answer that every cyclist wants to know…How do you remove the stink from cycling apparel and gear?
There is a product line specially designed to solve your problem.
- OdorBalance™ LaundryPro is a healthy, biodegradable, odorless premium laundry detergent designed specifically to Restore, Protect and Maintain your expensive sportswear from odor. LaundryPro repairs the damage that fabric softeners, dryer sheets and bulk economy laundry detergents do by washing away waxy detergent residues that clog up the textile moisture wicking technology. LaundryPro then protects your shorts, socks jerseys and active wear with a long lasting odor protector that acts like an odor barrier lasting for months.
- OdorBalance™ Offense/Defense are two products designed to restore used smelly cycling gear. Helmets can get smelly. Now you can clean and restore by using our simple cleaning and odor protection system. It only takes a few minutes.
- OdorBalance™ Overtime is great for treating brand new footwear and helmets. It is also great for on location maintenance when you want to clean up after that long ride.
Remember drying some specialty cycling clothing in the dryer may be harmful to textile. Make sure you always follow cleaning directions. Our products work well in the dryer or set out to dry naturally. Just wait until completely dry and you’ll be off to the races with the protection you need from unwanted pollutants.
