This week we've got some e-bike specific cleaner from Muc Off, heavy duty tyres from Specialized, two value dropper posts from the Chain Reaction Cycles brand, Brand-X. Clothing wise we are preparing for winter with cold weather gloves care of 100% and protecting one testers noggin with a new lid from TSG.
Muc Off e-bike cleaning products
The new range was originally announced back at Eurobike, with the goal of meeting the “unique” needs of the e-bike in mind. The products are designed to hit three key areas – cleaning, protection and maintenance – so that you can keep your e-bike running smoothly without worrying about damaging the electrical components.
We thought this might just be a new name and a price hike, but take a look at the website and it appears these products are quite different to the 'normal bike' products, we are keen to test these alongside our Dave from E-bike Tips.

Brand-X dropper posts
There have been some updates to the Brand-X lineup, the range now has a longer drop, the Ascend XL goes to 170mm, the have introduced the 150mm Ascend 01 offering a keener price point and there is also a 27.2mm option which can be internally or externally routed. We have a 150mm post and an externally routed 100mm 27.2 post to stick on a gravel bike.
Women's 100% Brisker gloves
We've heard great things about these Brisker Cold Weather gloves so are keen to try a pair out this winter. Not that keen that we want it to get cold too soon though.....
Spesh BLCK DMND tyres
This is the new tyre carcass from Spesh and it tougher than their GRID casing, they say "The new BLCK DMND casing strikes the balance between suppleness and extreme pinch flat protection". Getting them out of the pack today proves that they are pretty sturdy to say the least..... We have a 2.6" and a 2.3" Butcher to fit on the front and rear of Rachael's longtermer, the Cotic Rocket. These are e-bike specific too apparently....
This is a brand new lid from TSG, made to be lighter and stronger than other MTB lids due to the in-mould process of construction where the polycarbonate shell is bonded to the inner EPS foam layer. TSG say the Scope is their flagship mountain bike enduro helmet featuring superior head coverage, enhanced adjustability and a brand new look.
