Technical involvement in many other sports outside of motorsport
For several decades, the Ravensbergerschmstoffvertrieb GmbH company with the brand name RAVENOL has been operating technical partnerships in many other sports outside of classic motor sports. From tennis to skateboarding - there is no way around RAVENOL!
RAVENOL is the official lubricant partner of the tradition-rich German football club Borussia Mönchengladbach. The vehicle pool of the Bundesliga club relies on the broad range of high-quality RAVENOL lubricants. With their cooperation with Borussia Mönchengladbach, RAVENOL underline their claim to be partner and supplier in international top-class sports.
RAVENOL is the official lubricant partner of the Noventi Open (formerly known as Gerry Weber Open) and the Gerry Weber World. For nearly 30 years, now, the internationally renowned lawn-tennis tournament has been held in the weeks between the Grand Slam tournaments French Open and Wimbledon. Record winner of the tournament is Switzerland’s Roger Federer who won the title for the 10th time, this year. To make for ideal playing conditions, a perfect lawn represents the organisers’ top priority. Therefore, RAVENOL provides high-quality products for the entire vehicle pool and all the vehicles of the green-keeping area. The lawn mowers of the company, for instance, rely on the RAVENOL four-stroke , a special lawn-mower oil. Thanks to its special additive mix, this lubricant makes for a flawless operation, provides corrosion protection and prevents the accumulation of black sludge – even if the engine is taken to its limits.
RAVENOL, the specialist in high-performance lubricants, is technical partner of the regatta. You may ask yourself what the link between sailing and lubricants is. The answer is quite simple: all modern sailing boats are equipped with engines. If there is not enough propulsion provided by wind in the sails, the engine can be used to manoeuvre at sea or in marine harbours. Volvo diesel engines are installed in the Hanse 445 sailing yachts: Volvo Penta D2, equipped with 55 kW/ 75 PS. RAVENOL supplies the engines with RAVENOL Turbo-Plus SHPD SAE 15W-40, an all-year round multigrade oil.
Within the scope of the partnership with the COS Cup, the German Skateboarding Championship, RAVENOL has launched a new product for the skateboarding industry in collaboration with Titus – the Titus x RAVENOL Bearing Fluid! This new lubricant is a specially formulated oil for skateboard ball bearings with extremely low viscosity. Even lubrication of the ball bearing not only significantly increases the running performance and lifespan, it also offers protection against wear and has a rust-resistant effect. Not only this, each championship also features the RAVENOL Barrel Jump Contest. The contest takes the “Hippy Jump” format, i.e. the participants start on their own board (regular 7ply wood deck, not a flexible slalom board) and then land on a large complete board (at least 8.5“) behind the final drum.
Bike & Ski Night Race, a unique global snow duel between top ski racers and Harley-Davidson motorcyclists. RAVENOL is part of this too as a technical partner and equipment supplier, providing the bikers with engine oils such as the RAVENOL Motorbike V-Twin SAE 20W-50 Fullsynthas well as making various other lubricants, care products and accessories available to exceptional athletes such as the professional downhill skiers Peter Fill and Dominik Paris. Former ski racers Kröll, Herbst und Vogt will have their work cut out proving themselves against the specially adapted Harley bikes with deep profiles and spiked tyres.
The Braveheart Battle is a rock-hard old school obstacle course! This is a challenging natural route featuring brutal heights and extra obstacles that can be conquered, with no need for a handbook or complicated rules. In the water basin, participants are confronted with several RAVENOL drums which are part of the obstacle course.
RAVENOL, the lubricant manufacturer from East Westphalia, supports the handballers from Werther/Westphalia, assisting the team with all their state league matches and tournaments. That’s because RAVENOL's lubricants are used in the team supervisors’ vehicles, including in the team vehicle, a roomy VW Touran.
