If like us you do your cycling in the UK then summer will be a long distant memory. But don't fear, because as we enter the dark, damp time of year when you can hardly ride to the end of the road without your bike getting filthy, we've got three prizes from ceramic coating and bike cleaning specialist Gtechniq to give away to our UK readers. Simply fill out the entry form at the end of this page to put your name in the hat!
What about if your frame didn't get covered in all that rain and mud in the first place? At Gtechniq they do more than just help you get your bike clean after dirty rides thanks to the Bike Ceramic product designed to offer extreme dirt repellency from a long-lasting chemically bonding coating that goes on your frame and provides up to 24 months of protection.
Formulated to minimise adhesion of foreign objects such as brake dust, road grime and mud, Gtechniq's Bike Ceramic forms a durable, ultra-slick chemically bonding layer of optically clear ceramic on your frame, shielding it from dirt.
As Gtechniq founder and quantum physicist Drew Gill told us back in July when we visited the company's headquarters, "The focus was to get the dirt and dust repellency as high as possible so that you can spend more time riding and less time cleaning."
We've got plenty to give away thanks to the good folk at Gtechniq, so read on to find out more about your three chances to win...
The lucky reader who bags out top prize will be all set for a winter of bike cleaning with the Ultimate Bike Care Kit worth £139.96. Including Gtechniq's Clean, Clean Concentrate, Bike Wash, Drivetrain Degreaser, Ceramic Quick Coat, Bike Ceramic, Tri-Clean, Microfibre Wash Mitt, Detailing Brush, Drying Towel and Bike Microfibre, this really is everything you could ever need to keep your bike looking brand new.
Compatible with all bike paint finishes and paint protection films, Gtechniq is confident "these products have been designed to give superior cleaning when compared to the competition".
Our second winner will be receiving a double-header of Gtechniq's Bike Ceramic and a bumper bottle of Bike Clean. Lasting up to 24 months, the ceramic protection has been scientifically formulated to chemically bond to the surface of the bike frame and keep dirt, mud and road grime at bay.
Gtechniq's Bike Clean will provide the finishing touches to rid the rest of your bike of that winter filth.
Our final lucky winner will receive a bottle of Gtechniq's Bike Wash & Drivetrain Degreaser. Let's face it, your frame is just one part of the bike cleaning ritual, and scrubbing your drivetrain of grime is the most important part of keeping your ride running smoothly and extending those costly components' lifespan.
Gtechniq's Bike Wash is designed to "break the bond between the dirt film and your bike, delivering exceptionally strong cleaning power", while the highly concentrated, water-based Drivetrain Degreaser will get your chainrings, chain and cassette shining in not time.
Please note this competition is only open to entries from the United Kingdom. Fill in the form below to be in with a chance of winning, entries close at noon on 4 December 2023 and winners will be randomly selected shortly afterwards. Good luck!
