The 8 Best Cleaning Products for Electric Bikes

In order to optimise your electric bike’s longevity and keep it in top performance shape at all times, it is important to regularly give it a clean.

When looking for the best cleaning products for your electric bike, you need to consider if it is e-bike friendly and can be used on different bicycle components such as metal, disc brakes and rotors.

To help you out, we have put together a list of the top recommended eBike cleaning products on the market.

1 - Disc Brake Cleaner

Muc-Off is a well known high-performing bicycle maintenance brand. If you are looking for a brake cleaner we highly recommend trying the Muc-Off Disc Brake Cleaner. This cleaning agent is designed to easily remove oil and dirt from all braking parts.

Muc-Off cleaning spray comes with a long nozzle that can reach even the smallest of places. It can be used on both discs and rotors. It is formulated with ingredients that are made to moisturise your disc brakes so that the bike brake pads will last longer. In addition, it will also reduce any high pitched noises coming from the discs and improve your overall braking abilities.

Another option is the Maxima Citrus Contact Brake Cleaner Aerosol 369g. This spray is specifically constructed to remove contaminants such as heavy grease, dirt and oil from motorized bikes. It is non-staining and non-corrosive, and comes with a unique hydration formula to keep your brakes running smoothly. It dries super quickly and as it is designed for electric bikes it is safe to use, leaving behind no residue or moisture.

2 - Bike Chain Cleaner

The Smoove Prep chain cleaner was constructed with high technology polymer ingredients that are specifically designed to clean, neutralise and dissolve grease and dirt from your bike chain in mere minutes. You only need a little bit of the Smoove to get the job done -  much less than a normal degreaser. One bottle will be able to clean your drive train ten times! And it smells good - like fruity citrus.

After cleaning your chain we recommend putting on the Squirt Dry Chain Lube. This chain lube will prolong the life of your drivetrain by minimising dirt gathered, reducing chain suck and friction. It is long-lasting with wax/water emulsion, which will provide enough lube to last for the whole duration of a marathon. It also helps improve your shifting and reduce the sound of dry chain noise. The Squirt lube is super easy to clean off with a dry Muc-Off Brush.

3 - Drivetrain Cleaner

If you are looking for a cleaning product that is safe to use on all parts of the drivetrain system, then the Muc-Off Biodegradable Drivetrain cleaner 500ml is our top choice.

This cleaning agent can either be poured into a bicycle cleaning tool or be used as a spray that can easily reach the tighter spaces on the chainrings, derailleurs and bike cassettes. It offers riders a deep clean in mere minutes. The Muc-Off content is also fully biodegradable and safe to use on metal, rubber, seals and plastic.
