       Drops are pleased to announce that Fortress Distribution Ltd will be an official team partner for the 2017 season. 


Fortress Distribution are the UK’s exclusive distributor of premium US brand Black Mamba Gloves, the leading disposable gloves on the market for industrial and mechanical applications. 


Black Mamba Gloves will be worn all year round by Drops Cycling Team mechanics – ensuring our riders are ready for each race and back on the road as quickly as possible after an incident. With Black Mamba nitrile gloves’ superior puncture, tear and chemical resistance Drops Cycling Team staff are equipped to handle delicate tasks as well as tougher ones. 


“Black Mamba nitrile disposable gloves are the best on the market,” said Drops Cycling Team Lead Mechanic, Mike Jenner.


“They are perfect for all kinds of work - from bike cleaning and race prep to roadside repairs. The textured Grip Rite finish is great for precise contact and the superior strength means the gloves last way beyond our expectations for a disposable. In addition, the Black Mamba Impact glove with a heavy-duty palm and finger protection is ideal for heavy duty work like loading vans and installing the pit area.” 


“We're delighted to further our relationship with Drops becoming an official team partner for the 2017 season. Black Mamba Gloves are becoming increasingly popular in the cycling industry and it’s fantastic that they are becoming the number one choice for professional cycle mechanics as well as cycling enthusiasts,” said Jenny Matthews, Director Fortress Distribution.
