#1 ULTIMATE high-performance sports lube in the world
A new player in a century-old industry, DEUTHLON is a market-disrupting lubricant-expert that is revolutionizing the application of lubricants in high-performance sports. Founded in 2020, the founders of DEUTHLON realized that the lubricant industry is one that has remained unchanged for a century. As fishing hobbyists, they discovered that current market products are not suited for the demands and rigors of professional sporting applications, often times resulting in poor performance and damage to components.
The DEUTHLON founding duo then proceeded to develop what would be their starter kit today and also an additional series of professional sporting lubricants. In less than two years and in the midst of a pandemic, DEUTHLON’s expertly crafted lubrication solutions have reached 30 different countries and have garnered overwhelming positive feedback from professionals and movers alike, lauding the product performance-boosting qualities.
With its proven success in sales and recognition in product quality, DEUTHLON makes for a highly profitable investment for reasons not limited to the following.
A Modern Solution in A Dated Industry
An unchanged and stagnant industry, lubrication products in the sporting market today follow a generalized product footprint where one-size-fits-all. DEUTHLON’s modern, market-disrupting solutions are already making waves and will continue to do so in the coming years as we continue to innovate and lead the market for high-performance sporting lubricants.
Multiple Specialist Product Range Reaching Multiple Markets
DEUTHLON’s products are also far reaching and is currently already present in six different markets. Among these markets are users from the cycling, sports fishing, professional skateboarding and drone community, all of which have applauded DEUTHLON’s product quality. With this in mind, DEUTHLON’s access to a wide variety of markets will ensure longevity in its business and returns.
Bootstrapped Startup With A Successful Track Record & Top-Tier Team
Founded less than two years ago, DEUTHLON is entirely bootstrapped by its two founders, with operations, product development and sales all led by the both of them. And with the shareholding split between the two founders, investors will be able to enter into this market at an early stage.
“We create what is the new evolution of products enabling hobbyists
to truly enjoy their passion sport.”
The lubrication industry has remained fairly stagnant over the past decade and more, despite the market demands and needs having greatly shifted. The application of lubrication remains fairly utilitarian in its aim to simply reduce friction and maintain functionality of components. This however has been proven to be a severe setback as quality lubrication such as delivered by DEUTHLON has evidently increased the performances found in many of its applied fields.
Problems evident in the current climate of the lubrication industry can be summed as follows:
Outdated Technology and Development
Technology and development of lubrication products have remained fairly unchanged over the past decade, with civilian and domestic products and solutions primarily adapted from industrial formulas.
Current Solutions Not Optimized For Sporting Application
Similarly, due to current solutions typically adapted from previously industrial applications, specialists need in the current market such as in cycling, fishing and drone-flying are not met effectively. There is a significant demand in the professional performance level for lubricants that are specialized to each market user’s needs.
Products Available Aims at Maintenance and Not Performance
Addressing the issue on market-optimized lubricants, current lubricants used in various markets predominantly aim to provide basic lubricating functions which are primarily to maintain and optimize function of components through reduction of friction. At the professional performance level, end users have expressed the need for lubricants that can help components and performance tools function at a higher level of efficiency.
“Current market solutions are mostly adapted from industrial solutions
not suited for professional and specialized performance applications.”
As experts in sporting lubricants, DEUTHLON brings to the market solutions that are designed from the ground up to meet professional needs of specific end-users. The following are the key solution factors that DEUTHLON delivers through its products.
Products Developed With The Latest Technology
To ensure our solutions deliver top-tier function and performance, each market-solution is developed from the ground up using the highest quality of materials. This ensures longevity in both the applied lubricant and also the components applied to.
Specialist Solutions For Specialized Applications
In DEUTHLON we do not subscribe to the notion of general application. We believe that in order to achieve the highest performance, specific lubrication needs must be developed. This is reflection in all of our product range, with specific ranges produced for specific applications such as fishing, cycling, skateboarding and drone-flying. In fact, our products within each market range are also developed according to the components that it is applied on, this means within the cycling line alone, we have multiple lubricants that are designed for specific parts within a professional bike.

Here are the current customer types that DEUTHLON’s product range are able to provide for.
Sports Fishing (Fresh Water and Open Water Anglers)
DEUTHLON provides lubrication products that not just maintain the performance level of reel components, but provides the necessary boost in performance, ease of use and experience as well. Users have quoted our lubricant as significantly improving their parts’ ability to reel and perform well even under situations where components were stressed.
Competitive cycling is a sport that revolves around immense quantities of modification, components and accessories, culminating to an industry that has spent over 8 billion US dollars in accessories alone in 2021 in USA. All of this investment however becomes moot if not given the proper lubrication and professionals and experts who have used our products have cited that our products do not just keep parts moving, it pushes components to higher performance levels as well.
A market that has grown significantly in the past decade due to the high demand for drones and growing affordability. Our customers come from a wide range of user types, from photographers, amateur users to competitive drone athletes. The iron industry is expected to grow to a valuation of 42 billions USD in the year 2025 with each drone pilot in the competitive market to own at average 3 drones. This simply means the demand for high-quality, competitive and performance-based lubrication will soon become a norm.
The skateboarding industry has recently experienced a revival in asian countries, this was also made evident when it was rostered as part of the Tokyo Olympics. An industry that includes large amounts of amateur users and a currently very competitive sports scene, users now experiment with the various possibilities of lubrication that can help them gain better performance heights. Our product range for skateboarders have also gained successful reviews, supporting end users with gaining not just greater performance but also longevity in key moving components in the decks.
“DEUTHLON products and development allows it to meet the needs
of a broad range of users, all without compromising on delivering a performance edge.
The fund raising is just the beginning of DEUTHLON for the above mentioned 4 segments. There are huge multi millionare potential market segments which DEUTHLON has not started due to resource constrains. These new segments are 4x4, RC Racing, Firearms and Archery as below.
DEUTHLON currently generates revenue via online and offline sales and in order to generate sufficient leads for profitability, relies on strategically targeted marketing campaigns with distributors, industry professionals and industry-events to create awareness. The following are some of the approaches adopted by DEUTHLON to build market awareness towards revenue-generation and profitability.
Introduction-Level Starter Kits
The starter kits currently available for sale to the cycling and fishing market allows new users to get a taste of the performance improvement that DEUTHLON products deliver without committing to large quantities of purchase. Although limited to only cycling and fishing ranges at the moment, new ranges will be made available for different market end users.
Sponsorships & Endorsements
DEUTHLON currently provides sponsorships and endorsement opportunities to industry professionals such as athletes, sports teams, industry movers, reviewers and bloggers that build stronger market awareness for our products and performance improvements.
Products & Solutions Clinics
As we market to different parts of the world, providing opportunities for demonstrations and product-knowledge will greatly assist in breaking into new regions and markets. These could take the form of demonstration clinics, trade shows or even at competitions.
As a products-based business with a strong online sales presence, DEUTHLON will still place significant emphasis on driving sale through our e-commerce webpage. This will be achieved via digital ads, digital campaigns, influencers, etc.
As the new kid on the block of the lubrication industry, DEUTHLON operates from Malaysia but have sold its products to 30 different countries in the global market through direct communication with their stores and via our online e-commerce site. Having achieved this in less than 2 years since establishing as a business, our aim is to push for higher sales on our website by multiplying our investment in digital marketing and physical exhibitions at an international scale.
Although current market for lubrication is dominated by brands that have established their legacy, most of these brands typically serve only the needs of specific markets. Industry leaders such as Shimano, Penn and Daiwa have always focused their efforts on the market that they are established in, in this case fishing and cycling. Our aim as a brand is not to serve the needs of singular market groups, but to develop sufficient product range through our expertise to uniquely serve the needs of each market.
Additionally, most of the current available brands serve consumers at the entry, amateur and semi-professional level, whereas our products are designed for the semi-professional and competition level users. The nature of our product being not just for the purpose of maintaining performance but providing a boost in performance that competitive professionals will appreciate.
It is for the above reasonings that we believe that we will be able to compete in the lubrication market, by setting ourselves to serve in the segment of the professional users looking to get their next performance boost and by being a brand that is available to multiple user-audiences.
