OPTIMAL BRAKING POWER
Removes dirt, oil and dust from brake pads, calipers, discs
Leaves no residue
Prevents squeaking brakes
OPTIMAL BRAKING POWER
Braking force can be greatly reduced over the kilometres, not just because our pads and discs wear out but also because of the dirt that soaks into the pads. Regularly cleaning your brake pads with Bike7 Brake Cleaner will ensure you always get the best possible braking power.
Our brake cleaner will quickly dissolve all dirt, grease and oil deposits from your discs and pads without leaving the slightest residue. Its rapid evaporation also guarantees safe use and it won't damage brake piston seals or the paintwork on your callipers.
Are the brakes on your road bike or e-bike squealing? It's most likely because fuel residue or exhaust dust has contaminated them! A long stop at a red light behind a vehicle or a ride on a wet surface after a rain shower can be enough to contaminate your brake pads. Rest assured, with Bike7 Brake Cleaner you'll be back to efficient, quiet braking in just a few minutes.
Our brakes keep us safe, so let's make sure they're in top working order!
Applying Brake Cleaner is easier with a dismounted wheel. You can remove the brake pads for an even more thorough cleaning, but you don't have to. You spray Brake Cleaner directly onto both sides of the brake disc. Let it soak in for a few seconds and then rub the disc with a clean, dry cloth.
Then also spray Brake Cleaner directly onto the brake pads. Let it soak in for a few seconds and repeat this one more time. Then wipe the brake pads with a clean and dry cloth.
A piston that does not return properly can also be the cause of a squeaky disc. In this case you can also use Brake Cleaner:
Disassemble the wheel and the brake pads. Put a plastic block in the brake calliper so that the piston does not come out too far when you pull on the brake. Remove the plastic block and spray Brake Cleaner on the pistons. Then wipe off the piston by sliding a dry cloth through the caliper. Spray a little Bike7 Protect on the pistons and rub again with a cloth. Push the pistons back using the plastic block, fit the brake pads and wheel again and re-centre the brake pads.
