To go along with their Dirt Invaders themed booth, Muc-Off has an entire new line of e-bike related products – though some will be useful for all bikes, not just e-bikes. Why e-bike specific cleaning and protection products? Well, e-bikes obviously have a lot more sensitive electronics than your average bike which means some special care is needed while cleaning – that and the added torque of the drivetrains means e-bike specific chainlube is actually a thing.
That’s especially true of the disc brake covers which double as protective covers while traveling, or over spray protection when cleaning. Sold in a set of two, the neoprene covers will fit any size rotors and velcro closed around the rotor and caliper to keep them clean and protected.
Dry Wash Cleaner and Dry Chain Cleaner are exactly as they sound – ways to wash your bike and clean your chain without needing to rinse with water. Just spray on and wipe off, no need to rinse which makes them safer for use around electronics.
Once it’s clean, the “Ultra Corrosion Defence” is a spray on product to help keep your e-bike rust and corrosion free. Safe for use on the frame, battery terminals, metal parts, plastics, and paint, the spray leaves an anti corrosive layer to drive out moisture.
Then there are three new chain lubes which have been specifically formulated to help with the higher torque associated with e-bike drivetrains. Available in formulas for wet weather, dry weather, or spray on all weather, the lubes all include Muc-Off’s UV tracer dye to help with application.
