Bike Wash

Your bike will need a good wash after a dirty cyclocross race. WD-40 Bike Foaming Wash removes grease and grime from your bicycle with foamy suds. This product is biodegradable and safe for multiple types of bike frames, including: carbon fiber, titanium, aluminum, steel, chrome, rubber, or plastic.

Chain Lubricant

Chain-L High-Mileage Bicycle Chain Lube is a mixture of extreme pressure lubricants and a strong mineral oil base. The blend offers maximum lubrication to the small bearings on a bicycle chain. It also prevents rust and chain issues caused by cycling in wet-weather. White Lightning Clean Ride Lubricant is a wax-based lubricant that will self-clean your bicycle after application. The dirtier your ride, the more this lube performs its shedding action – keeping your bicycle clean while you ride. This is especially desirable for best performance during a bike race.
