Duck Smart Bike Ezee Dry Wash Detailer is a fast way to clean, polish and protect your bike. In essence this waterless solution lifts light grime then leaves a layer of silicone on the surface to be buffed to a shine.
- Pros: Very easy to use, silicone really helps bring tyre sidewalls back to satin black
- Cons: The level of shine isn't quite up there with dedicated wax polishes
Application of the product couldn't be simpler. If your bike's really dirty then it pays to do a water-wash with soap and detergent first, but if you've only a layer of fine grime then just spray the Bike Ezee onto paintwork and components, then, using a microfibre cloth – best for wicking away dirt from the surface – work it over minor patches of dirt, and polish to a shine.
Bike Ezee certainly works, as you can see moisture bobbling off anything you've applied the stuff to, and it actively helps to prevent dirt from adhering to the bike as the weekly deep clean took far less time than previously. It's also safe to use around disc brake rotors.
It's good value – I've seen seen similar products for around a tenner, such as Muc-Off Silicon Shine and Pedro’s Bike Lust – and the banana with a hint of chocolate aroma is a definite plus point for me.
Saves time, brings your bike up smart and smells great into the bargain

For use just spray on and wipe over with a Micro Fibre cloth. Bike Ezee contains no PTFE's so is safe to use on all brands of disc brakes without the risk of contamination.
Bike Ezee is brilliant on Paintwork, Carbon Fibre, Titanium, Rubber and Aluminium parts.

Especially great on tyres.
The shine isn't as long lasting as polish, but that's to be expected for a product that cleans and polishes in one package.
I've seen similar products for around a tenner so this is great value.
