Bike Maintenance: Degreasing & Lubrication!

Wheels get submerged in puddles; dirt and debris will stick to your chain and anywhere it can. To ensure your mountain bike runs smoothly and parts have a decent shelf life, lubrication is essential.

Degreasing your bike chain can be time-consuming; time you’d rather spend riding. Our specialist BIKE Degreaser formula is perfect for quickly and easily removing grease, grime, dirt and oil from chains, derailleurs, cassette sprockets and even cogsets with minimal effort, so you can get out of the garage and onto your bike.


To use; simply spray on the fast-acting formula, letting it work into tight spaces and difficult angles. Then wipe away excess dirty fluid with a cloth. Repeat as necessary until all dirt, grease and grime has been removed. The excess formula dries to leave no residue, and will remain on components to protect and maintain, extending the life of your bike.
