As the official supplier of bicycle care products to Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka, we look at the teams top five items for a successful season.
1) Nano Tech Bike Cleaner
Having just smashed a dusty mountain stage and with less than 12 hours to your next stage, you need a fast action cleaner to get your ride factory fresh for the next stage. Enter Muc-Off's Nano Tech Bike Cleaner.
A firm favourite of the team's riders and mechanics, the state-of-the-art Nano Tech formula breaks down dirt and grime at a microscopic level, while caring for the delicate finish of their Cervélo S5, R5 and P5's.
2) Bio Drivetrain Cleaner + Drivetrain Detailing Brush
During an intense stage race, a riders drivetrain and derailleur can pick up numerous contaminants that, if left, will reduce efficiency.
To get the team's drivetrains clean and contaminant free, the mechanics use a Drivetrain Detailing Brush to quickly apply Bio Drivetrain Cleaner to the numerous bikes as they return from another gruelling stage.
3) Nanotube Chain Lube
Continuing attention on the drivetrain area, Team Dimension Data will be riding specially optimised by Muc-Off throughout the season.
Using the Nanotube Chain Lube, riders will have full confidence that they have the best lube available for ultimate drivetrain efficiency.
4) Matt Finish Detailer
With the teams Cervélo S5's draped in a special matt black, their bikes need a matt specific detailer.
The newest member of Muc-Off's bike protection range, Matt Finish Detailer has been specifically developed for satin matt paints, matt finishes and matt vinyl wraps. The premium-grade formula will leave any matt surface with a streak and gloss-free protective finish that reduces dirt adhesion.
5) Silicon Shine
For certain parts of the team's bikes, a gloss finish and protectant is required. For this job Dimension Data's mechanics use Silicon Shine.
Not only leave their bikes looking fresh, it also acts as an amazing friction reducer for moving parts and reduces dirt adhesion.
