Stuff being waterproof is great, especially in the UK, so anything that makes more stuff more waterproof should be welcomed. This Motorex Protex spray promises to waterproof a range of fabrics, but ultimately the performance is a bit disappointing.
Motorex White Grease has been a product that stirs mixed emotions in me. On the one hand its tenacity and buttery smooth effect is perfect for bearing surfaces-headsets, hubs, pedals and bottom brackets being the obvious candidates. Then again, at eighteen quid, it's a good deal more expensive than equally stubborn and moreover, seal friendly synthetics.
Motorex Bike Grease 2000 is a translucent, semi-fluorescent yellowy green unguent that reminds us a great deal of the stuff you find hiding in the threads of new Shimano components. It's proved itself to be extremely tenacious and is a good choice for high-wear applications and exposed locations.
The Motorex Active Foam works well to get your bike helmet clean and smelling fresh.
Okay, no schoolboy jokes about helmet care, please. This stuff really works. Judging by the picture on the front, it is aimed primarily at motorcyclists, but it works equally well with cycling helmets.
What you do is spray the stuff and it immediately foams up. It looks like hair mousse, if you're the sort of metrosexual individual who knows about such things. You leave it to work its magic for a couple of minutes then wipe it off with a dry cloth. Easy-peasy.
Motorex dry lube is a semi synthetic blend of wax and synthetic oils that has proved phenomenally long-lived despite the winter's characteristically hostile conditions and the fact there hasn't been much dry to test it in. Even in the wet it's tenaciously stuck to the chain without becoming a gritty, transmission chewing mess. Oh and I've just passed three hundred miles on a single helping…
Motorex Bike Shine Hi Protecting Formula is the answer to busy riders' prayers, extending intervals between bucket washes.
On the face of things, there's nothing particular about the ingredients, essentially we've a silicone product and solvent carrier but the Swiss brand's years of petrochemical experience ensures a glossy, dirt-repelling sheen.
In common with most aerosol products, the solvent component serves to keep the mixture sprayable, while powerful cleaning agents prime the host surface.
