Cyclops Marine appoints new French Distributor

Cyclops Marine is proud to announce a collaboration with XPO, the specialist rigging and hardware wholesaler, as its new distributor for France.

XPO is a major supplier to the performance racing market. 

“We are excited with the opportunity to distribute the Cyclops Marine range. These products will make a huge difference to how people race their boats, knowing the repeatable fast numbers for the rigging and line loads,” says Xavier Phelipon, CEO of XPO. “With the wireless technology it is so easy to gain immediate benefits.

“We also see great safety benefits for the multihull sailors, with the available load data they can now make early adjustments to prevent damage or accident.” 

“When we researched for our preferred partner for the all-important French market, Xavier’s name was recommended every time,” says Cyclops Marine’s sales director, Tom Pickles. “XPO is a highly respected organisation and aligns well with the values of Cyclops Marine. We can’t wait to support the XPO Team to maximise the opportunities in the region.

“Our smarttune product is so well suited to the masses of 20ft -50ft racers and cruiser racers in France. There are so many iconic yacht racing brands built here that can further harness their potential with the real time rig data. Our smartlinks also align so well with XPO’s rigging expertise.”

The Cyclops Marine Smart range of products are a new generation of wireless load sensors created by some of the leading brains from Cambridge University, in tandem with sailors, to produce accurate, repeatable and meaningful data.
