New material technology demands specific lubricants and products to protect components, and Finish Line has two such new products.

Fiber Grip, is a carbon-fibre assembly gel designed to increase friction and reduce slippage between clamped carbon surfaces, helping to eliminate slipping seatposts or moving bars, and protecting components from the need for heavy-handed tightening. Available in a 1.75oz/50g tube or a 1lb/455g workshop tub, priced at £6.99 and £24.99 respectively.

Also new is a Ceramic Grease formula, which Finish Line claims prevents rusting even when exposed to salt water, and is ?guaranteed? to optimise the performance and efficiency of any bottom brackets, hubs and headset bearings. Available in 2oz/60g or 1lb/455g quantities, for £5.99 and £21.99 respectively.
