Best Bike Chain Degreasers: Maintain Your Bike’s Efficiency
Use a good-quality bike chain degreaser to extend the life of your chain
Clean Ride sets as a dry wax film, so there is no oily film to attract dirt and abrasive contaminants. It is cycling's only self-cleaning lubricant.
This is a good product for getting the deep stuff loose. It strips away grease, lube, and grime. It is also long-lasting.
In wet weather, the wax film becomes wet and sticky, reducing efficiency.
In extreme heat, the wax film will not last as long as in cooler conditions.
1-Step is a light, wet-style lubricant. It penetrates and flushes old grease and contaminants out with each new application.
This cleaner is a surprisingly versatile two-in-one product. Primarily for chains, it also works on gummed-up mechanisms and sticky cables.
It’s somewhat messy to use and requires more frequent reapplication than traditional wet lubes.
This is a dry-style degreaser. It cleans and strips down to the bare metal. It evaporates dry and leaves no residue.
It’s perfect for cleaning and decontaminating disc brakes. A turbo sprayer uses mechanical agitation to help quickly remove contaminants. It’s fast-acting with good dirt stripping power.
Some users complain it is less potent than the manufacturer suggests and is not great for excessive dirt build-up. Don’t expect it to last long if it’s your only cleaning product.
