History 

Mathijs Wagenaar, the founder of CloseTheGap, has been a fanatic cyclist all his life. As a pro-racer he won races in various disciplines, achieving particularly well in mountain biking. 

After his sports career, he combined his passion for cycling with journalism, becoming an editor for the Dutch cycling magazine Fiets. In an attempt to increase safety and mutual respect among cyclists he came up with the idea of a bell that was so cool that even racing cyclists actually would like to have it. The HideMyBell concept was born.

His industrial product design education came in handy when he printed the first prototypes in March 2015. To be able to release a wide variety of innovative cycling products in the upcoming years, Mathijs decided to introduce a new brand name: CloseTheGap. All his in-house engineered products must be in line with his mission: making cycling safer and more fun. Professional riders like Chris Froome already use a HideMyBell in training. For CloseTheGap this is confirmation that even the world's greatest champions can benefit from CloseTheGap products. 

Partnerships 

CloseTheGap is keen to work together with professional racing teams. In the past and present CloseTheGap has been official supplier for the UCI teams Roompot - NL Loterij (NL), Joker Icopal (NO), Parkhotel Valkenburg (NL) and CST Sandd American Eagle (NL), and is keen to work together with top individual athletes. It had individual partnerships with the pro-riders Ramon Sinkeldam, Laurens ten Dam and Wout Poels.

CloseTheGap is not an official supplier for Chris Froome, but pictures show him using a HideMyBell during training. Rumour has it that his wife Michelle bought him a HideMyBell late in 2015. As thanks CloseTheGap sent some special Sky-blue editions to Chris and his teammates for Christmas in 2016. 

Fitting a HideMyBell shows the world that CloseTheGap's goal can become reality: that you really can increase bike safety without compromising on style. Right now CloseTheGap has more partners than it could ever have dreamed of.
