  • WASHING A BICYCLE  WITHOUT WATER

    WASHING A BICYCLE WITHOUT WATER

    You can’t always use water to clean your bike. In fact, when cleaning e-bikes it’s best to use as little water as possible to protect the electronics. The new MOTOREX QUICK CLEAN is proof that quick, gentle cleaning is possible even without water. Just spray down the bike using the 360° rotating pump mister (500 ml), let it soak, then polish with a clean, dry, soft cloth. QUICK CLEAN removes even resistant dirt, makes the bike gleam and causes rain and splash water to roll off all surfaces (metal, plastic, paint, glass and even carbon). The result speaks for itself, so no need to reach for the hose.
     
  • PIT STOP WITH ALPINE TOP PAO 220

    PIT STOP WITH ALPINE TOP PAO 220

    Snow groomers have complex transmission configurations (transfer gears, final drives, winch systems, etc.) that operate under un­usually heavy loads. Transmission components are exposed to high torque and large temperature fluctuations for hundreds of hours. As a result, the choice of transmission oil is key for trouble-free operation and protection of the assembly. The new fully synthetic ALPINE TOP PAO 220 is a special transmission oil for snow groomers that perfectly meets all requirements. A special combination of high-pressure additives significantly reduces wear while ensuring high reliability. It also offers maximum protection for wet brakes and takes account of the special frictional characteristics required there. Based on poly­alphaolefins (PAOs), this special transmission oil has a viscosity of  SAE 75W/140 or ISO 220 and meets or exceeds DIN 51 517/T3: CLP – ISO 6743-6 and ISO 12925-1: CKC / CKD / CKE – API GL-4.
