After years of availability across the pond in Europe, Muc-Off’s disc brake cleaner will finally come to North American shelves.

Muc-Off Disc Brake Cleaner air-dries so riders can just spray it on the bike, wipe the brakes, and hit the road — without high-pitched squeals every time they pull up at a red light.

Like its competitors, Muc-Off’s cleaner also claims to prolong the life of disc brakes by leaving them free of contaminants.

It costs $13 for an 11.4-ounce can, compared to the $10 can of 10 ounces offered by Finish Line’s own brand of cleaner. But it comes highly recommended: Commencal, Ineos Grenadiers, and EF Education-EasyPost all use Muc-Off. So if you’re a fan of those teams, maybe you like the idea of solidarity through brake cleaner.

 

“It’s awesome to be able to introduce our market leading disc brake cleaner to North America,” Alex Trimnell, CEO Muc-Off, said in a press release. “It has already become a firm favourite in the rest of the world and is a great addition to our growing range of products available in the USA.”

It’s available now through the company’s website and at selected retailers.

Most automotive brake cleaner has chlorine in it, that’s why the headache. CRC Non-chlorinated Brakleen is $5-$6 at any automotive store, does the same thing for half the price of the de facto bike industry markup.

Brake contamination is like a weird superstition. There are many things that can make your brakes feel bad, but once you have exhausted your search, you declare CONTAMINATION. Then you try to appease the contamination gods with your next set. I really find it hard to believe that oil can contaminate solid metal rotors. Mechanics will disagree because they are the high priests of contamination theory.
