In addition to the right cleaning products, you can make cleaning your road bike, mountain bike or gravel bike easier by using the right tools. Dynamic has a wide range of brushes and other cleaning tools. We are happy to explain these in our bike washing guide.

What do I need to clean my bike?

In addition to the cleaners, degreasers and water, you need the right brushes and tools. You can remove the stubborn dirt from your frame with a brush, sponge or bike washing glove. A specific brush for the drivetrain is recommended to use in combination with a chain cleaner, such as Drivetrain Detox, to get your chain spotless again.

After washing your bike, it is recommended to dry it with a cloth. This can be a towel, but also a microfibre cloth.

Dynamic has a wide range of brushes and other tools to use with every cleaning session.

Other tools you can use to clean your bike

In addition to using brushes, you can also use a sponge or bike washing glove to clean your frame. For cleaning your chain, Dynamic has a chain cleaning tool.

We’re happy to provide an explanation for these tools.

Using Dynamic microcell sponge to clean bike

Sponge

The sponge is a popular cleaning tool for everyone who likes to wash their bike with a bucket of water and cleaner. Our sponges are also used often by the pro mechanics. The large sponge makes it possible to quickly wash the entire bike. With the rough side you can also immediately clean the drivetrain.

Bike cleaning glove

The bike washing glove is also a tool that is often used in combination with a bucket filled with water and a bit of Bio Filth Fighter. The advantage of the bike cleaning glove is that you can easily reach all places of your frame. The long fibers of the glove absorb the water, allowing you to soak off the dirt.

Use this tool for: frame, components and wheels.

In our Chain Care boxes you’ll find a chain cleaner tool. You place this tool around the chain after you have filled it up to the mark with Chain Cleaner or Drivetrain Detox. Then, when you spin the pedals backwards, the brushes in the tool automatically clean your chain and between the chain links.

Use this tool for: chain.

Cleaning chain with a microfibre cloth

Microfibre cloths

After washing your bike, it is important to dry the drivetrain and your frame to prevent corrosion. You can use the Dynamic microfibre cloths or a towel for this. The black microfibre cloth in particular is useful for drying your chain and cassette. This cloth is also suitable for cleaning your brake discs.

If you want to give your frame a protective finish after washing, it is important to use a soft, clean cloth. You can polish the spray with the Luxury Polishing cloth.
