*Also pls note ZFC sells products at recommended Australian RRP set by company. Some online sites may sell at prices which are literally $1 to $3 above landed price. This may work for high volume stores who can afford to make $1 per sale, but not for a small boutique store, where around 10% of revenue is put back into covering the cost of testing projects which provides knowledge for us all to use to save friction and wear on our drivetrains. By purchasing from ZFC, you are supporting the worlds most robust and referenced independent test model, and one where test results do not need to sit behind a paywall but open to all. If the manufacturers RRP for Australia price fits in your budget, your support is of course greatly appreciated*
What is it: SILCA Gear Wipes are two-sided, disposable towels designed to remove dirt, grease oils, and sweat from your cycling gear. Each wipe contains a textured scrubbing side for removal of heavy dirt or grime and a soft polishing side for finish cleaning which leaves behind a spotless shine. The wipes use cosmetic grade cleaning agents that are safe for use on hands and skin but contain no lotions or moisturizers which can leave behind streaks or slimy residues.
Who is it for: SILCA Gear wipes are for anybody who needs to clean any type of gear or hard goods as well as clean their hands after they’ve worked on their gear.
SILCA gear wipes were initially developed by Brandon Hirokawa, the creator of the Hirobel frame clamp and pro-mechanic in cycling and triathlon. The wipes are originally formulated to clean dirt, grease, oil, sweat and even drink mix residue from frames and components, however, it was quickly realized that the unique fast evaporating non-solvent based cleaning agent could make dirty white bar tape white again with no slimy residue, clean running shoes and clean dirty hands after a day in the workshop. This amazing cleaner has been mated with the top end Kimberly Clark dual surface substrate for maximum cleaning power. Each towel has a scrubbing side for heavy dirt and grease as well as a polishing side for delicate surfaces and finishes cleaning/polishing. Few practices can lead to improved longevity, smoother running and increased efficiency of your equipment the way that cleaning it can. This is why ProTour mechanics clean every bicycle after every ride. They say that a clean bicycle is a happy bicycle, but do not let this hide the fact that a clean bicycle will run quiet, smooth, be more efficient and will last longer than a dirty one.
