Muc-Off launch a disc brake cover

Designed to shield your brakes when cleaning your bike or during transportation, the neoprene covers are built to fit all disc brake bikes

If you tend to fling lube all over the place when you're giving your bike some TLC or are worried about disc brakes getting damaged in transit, Muc-Off have just the thing for you... a neoprene disc brake cover that wraps around the rotors with Velcro to keep 'em safe and sound.

With more of us switching to disc brakes, it's common knowledge that pads and rotors don't really mix with lubricants or protective sprays, so Muc-Off went about creating a solution. They fit any size of disc brake on any type of bike, and Muc-Off say they will help your brakes to "maintain power and maximum performance". To attach them, you put the base plate (the back of it) over the hub axle by pulling it apart at the join and pushing it round, then starting at the caliper, apply the neoprene cover over the top. We found it fitted more neatly around the front brake, with the chainstay getting in the way a bit at the rear.

We found an alternative use...

After using you can simply rinse both parts of the cover with water, and Muc-Off helpfully remind us not to ride with them attached. A set of two will cost you £22.50, and they're available to buy on Muc-Off's website now...

Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
