Okole (pr. oh-ko-lay) Stuff was developed by a Multi-time National Endurance Championship winning team. This unique ointment is the result of trying every Chamois Cream on the market and not finding satisfactory performance. Okole means “Butt” in Hawiian.
While most chamois ointments are water based, Okole Stuff’s soft paraffin base stays on TOP of your skin to provide hours of friction-free time in the saddle. Soothing and long-lasting ingredients include Lanolin, Allantoin, Tea Tree Oil, and Aloe to help heal your skin and keep you riding longer. Try it for yourself and find real relief no matter how many miles your ride takes you.
Lehe (pr. lay-hay) Stuff is a new energy product that delivers its energy infusion through one of the most absorbent parts of your body- your lips! Combine the soothing and healing benefits of pure ingredients including green tea, vitamin B12 and caffeine. Pow! right in the kisser. Lehe means “Lips” in Hawaiian.
Enduro Stuff products are currently distributed by BTI and KHS in the United States, and in Spain, Germany, Australia, the UK and more. For distribution inquiries, contact Ron Sawicki at firstname.lastname@example.org
