Muc-Off, the manufacturer of bicycle cleaning and maintenance products, has announced the launch of a range of new products being unveiled at this year’s Eurobike show. Including a range of eBike specific protection and lubrication products, Women’s Chamois Cream, Disc Brake Covers, Indoor Training Series and a Tubeless Valve Kit; according to the company, the string of new products demonstrate an ‘unparalleled level of attention to detail in order to help meet the growing needs of today’s cyclists.’
Women’s Chamois Cream
Understanding that men and women have different needs when it comes to chamois cream, Muc-Off decided it was time to develop what is being billed as the ultimate, high-performance Chamois Cream specifically for women, which is Ph balanced, uses natural fragrances, is antibacterial and suitable to use on sensitive skin.
Working closely with partnered pro teams, the Muc-Off Athlete Performance R&D team has developed a formula to deeply moisturise skin for riding comfort and protection, over long distances and in all conditions. The chamois cream is pH balanced, enriched with vitamins, uses natural ingredients and fragrances, and creates a mild cooling effect for riding comfort. Available to buy in August this year, the Muc-Off Women’s Chamois Cream also comes in a handy 100ml travel friendly tube.
Disc brakes have become commonplace in both elite and every-day cycling across a wide range of disciplines. Targeting this sub-category, Muc-Off has launched patent pending Disc Brake Covers to protect discs during maintenance or transport.
Built to fit all disc-brake sizes, Muc-Off’s new Disc Brake Covers ‘ensure you don’t get lube or protectant overspray onto pads or rotors, helping to maintain power and maximum braking performance.’ Coming in a set of two, the protective and breathable neoprene covers will be available to buy in October.
Indoor Training Series
The cycling indoor training market is now a multi-million pound industry and growing fast. As a company that is ‘obsessed with meeting consumer needs’, Muc-Off has now provided indoor training enthusiasts with the tools to keep their training equipment clean, germ free and protected from the significant problems associated with sweat damage.
Muc-Off Sweat Protect uses state of the art anti corrosion additives and inhibitors to provide protection against corrosion. It drives out moisture and leaves a protective anti corrosive layer on a bike’s frame, metal parts, plastics and paintwork to keep the harmful effects of moisture and sweat at bay. An integral UV tracer dye helps to ensure application & protection.
Complimenting this is the Antibacterial Equipment Cleaner – an advanced all-purpose, antibacterial cleaner for all indoor trainers and gym equipment. The cleaner is suitable for aluminium, stainless steel, plastic and vinyl. ‘Just spray and wipe, no rinsing necessary.’
Both products will be available for purchase from around October – just in time for the turbo-training season!
Tubeless valve kit
Understanding how frustrating it is to have a leaky tubeless valve that just won’t seal, the team at Muc-Off have created their own premium tubeless valves to solve the hassle of finding a tyre flat. This builds on the No Puncture Hassle Tubeless Sealant launched by the brand in June.
Available in 60mm & 44mm lengths with both road & MTB fitments these 6061 aluminium machined stems with removable valve core & caps come in an assortment of 8 colours to match the overall look of a bike.
Flats have also been machined into the washer seal and a 4mm Allen key head into the valve stem to ensure easy application and removal using the valve core removal tool integrated into the spare alloy cap. The kit is completed with round and square rubber bases to fit all different rim types. Like the new indoor training series, the Muc-Off tubeless valve kit will be available to buy from around September this year.
The rapid growth of eBikes across Europe continues apace. As more and more people opt for electric-assisted pedalling, a number of problems have been highlighted when trying to maintain these bikes with the same products used for non-assisted models. Muc-Off has therefore announced a brand-new range of eBike-specific cleaning, protection & lubrication products designed specifically for use with eBikes and developed with the unique needs of an e-Bike in mind.
The Dry Wash and Dry Chain Cleaner allow an eBike to be cleaned, degreased and detailed whilst taking away the need to rinse with water – a critical feature when washing electrical components.
The eBike Ultra Corrosion Defence uses ‘state of the art anti-corrosion additives and inhibitors’ to provide class leading protection against corrosion. It even works on surfaces that already have rust and corrosion. It drives out moisture and leaves a protective anti corrosive layer on a bike’s frame, battery casing, battery terminals, metal parts, plastics and paintwork to keep the harmful effects of moisture at bay.
All Weather, Ceramic Wet and Dry Weather lubes have also been developed to withstand the high torque loads that are put through an eBike chain, keeping an ‘e-machine running smoother for longer’. All of the Muc-Off e-Bike lubes feature an integral UV tracer dye to ensure accurate application & protection.
Commenting on the range of new products lined up for later this year, Muc-Off Managing Director Alex Trimnell said, “As the leading manufacturer of bicycle cleaning and maintenance products worldwide, Muc-Off has always been driven by an obsession with meeting consumers’ needs. We are really excited to unveil a wide range of new products at this year’s Eurobike show to meet the real needs of today’s cyclists and help everyone to perform to their very best.
