In his new position as managing director, he will be responsible for sales and marketing as well as commercial issues.

Sigma is distributed in the UK by Oxford Products, and has been since July 2021.

The German brand, founded in 1981, is best known for its bike computers, lights and accessories.

A spokesperson for the brand said: “The birth of mountain biking has changed the bicycle in its meaning and in its application from a pure transport vehicle to an image-driven sporting and leisure good.

“This evolution of the sport has presented new challenges all cycling brands; challenges for which Sigma Sport is deliberately equipped to meet. It is the key reason why we are continually first-to-market with innovations like new battery lighting concepts, feature-rich heart rate monitors, inflation pumps with electronic pressure measurement – all at competitive price points.”
