It really isn’t that hard to keep your bike clean and running smoothly. But if you stress about keeping your rotors contamination-free while you keep your bike fresh & your bearings spinning freely, Muc-Off’s Disc Brake Covers may be the thing for you…
Muc-Off neoprene Disc Brake Covers for cleaning & transport
I pretty much subscribe to one of two methods of bike maintenance (note: please don’t follow my advice here) – either totally ignore cleaning your bike until it starts making a lot of noise, or just habitually keep it looking spotless. But if you are all about keeping your bike properly clean and properly lubed, it is important to keep those aggressive cleaners and oily lubricants away from your brake rotors and brake pads.
Muc-Off neoprene Disc Brake Covers – Tech Details
Muc-Off’s latest neoprene Disc Brake Covers will keep your brakes safely protected from the occasionally errant spray-on frame protection, cleaner, polish or lube.
The simple neoprene covers velcro tightly over your rotors, and both deflect harmful sprays while cleaning your bike or keep anything from touching the rotors directly when you travel with your bike. Plus, their bright high-contrast design will make it hard to forget them when you are about to pack or giving your bike a clean.
The $29/£22.50 Muc-Off Disc Brake Covers are sold as a pair and work with pretty much any standard road or mountain rotors – 140-203mm. They are reusable and cleanable, and also claim to protect against corrosion since they keep your rotors covers while using more aggressive cleaners and such.
A more rigid base slides behind the rotor, over the hub, and then the flexible outer cover can be pressed into place, either directly over the rotor off the bike, or even attached over the frame or fork.
The breathable neoprene Disc Brake Covers aren’t completely sealed against contamination – so don’t try to blast them with spray lube – but are rather meant to offer some additional layer of protection. Then simply rinse them off before using again – whether to protector your brakes on the bike, or your rotors in transit.
