»In the former DDR we relied on good material, which partly was from our own production or was imported,« Olaf Ludwig, former GERMAN cyclist and Olympic champion of 1988, tells. Besides the Colnago-Bicycles, equipped with Campagnolo products, he remembers the SKS GERMANY foot-operated pumps. »We always were satisfied with it. Our chief mechanic protected the pumps quite well and not anybody was allowed to use it – that’s an indicator for good quality,« underlines Ludwig. The cyclist has won three stages of Tour de France and the sprint of the green tricot. »Now, after 26 years, the RENNKOMPRESSOR of SKS GERMANY still attends me and it is still as reliable as it was in the past. Congratulations on your 50-years-anniversary!«
