Muc-Off Über Wax

A clean bike is a fast bike and never has that been more true than in the case of Muc-Off’s new Über Wax.

The first hard wax for bicycles, which will not only bring your machine to the shine, but it might just help shave seconds off you race performance too.

“Über Wax creates a hydrophobic finish that is exceptionally resistant to road salts, harmful UV rays, acid rain and industrial fallout,” Muc-Off’s Zhara Woods told us. “And because it doesn’t contain any abrasives it’s suitable for all paint types, colours and carbon fibre.

“But as well as the shine, once you’ve polished it off it also helps reduce the drag caused by your bike. We work with the Force India Formula One team and they love our kit. We know this polish works for cars so we’re going to be taking it into a wind tunnel to test soon to get the absolute data on how much of a benefit it is.”

Über Wax costs £45 and for that you also get a foam applicator pad, micro-fibre polishing cloth and padded bag.
