Ultimate Bike Solution is a new cycle-specific product arriving from motorcycle accessory brand Scottoiler.
The diversifying brand’s releasing the new cycle lubricant and protector spray was developed with the School of Life, Sport and Social Sciences department of Edinburgh Napier University.
The maintenance spray micro-solution lubricates and protects bikes and is water soluble and therefore biodegradable, the firm said. Repeated use builds up a layer of protection that will ensure bikes run smoothly and efficiently.
“We’ve been working on different ideas since 2000 but over the last year we've started several projects to get the ball rolling again,” said Scottoiler sales and export manager Kevin Rooney.
“With the recent cycling boom in Britain we decided to reengineer a past product. Edinburgh Napier University began running extensive field trials of the solution using commuters, leisure riders and racers to test Ultimate Bike Solution in every type of weather that the Scottish climate could throw at them. Results from these trials proved extremely positive and use of UBS has even helped racers onto the podiums.”
Ultimate Bike Solution comes in two sizes; a 750ml spray bottle for use at home and in the workshop and a 50ml “Pocket-Size” bottle to carry on the ride and to replenish lubrication after a long day’s riding.
