The popularity of e-bikes is unyielding and the low impact they have on the environment, is even more attractive.
“Today every one out of four bicycles sold in Germany is an electric bike” (J.W. van Schaik:2019).
“In the Netherlands the e-bike sales have grown by 44% in the first quarter of 2019. Germany’s e-bike market grew by 37% in the first half of 2019, where 920 000 e-bikes were sold which is almost the same number of the total sales in 2018 (J.Oortwijn:2019)”.
Due to the growth in popularity of e-bikes, the UCI integrated an e-Mtb category into the UCI Regulations. On 28 August 2019, the first ever UCI e-MTB World Championships took place which attracted former World- and Olympic MTB champions
After extensive testing by Bart Brentjens (CST Sandd Bafang MTB Racing Team) and Julien Absalon (Absolute Absalon Team), Squirt Cycling Products proudly introduces the new Squirt e-bike Chain Wax.
E-bikes place higher demands on their drivetrains than standard bicycles, due to higher torque loads and power outputs.This means that e-bike chains experience higher rates of wear. Squirt e-bike Chain Wax was specifically developed to meet these demands and negate the higher rates of wear.
Squirt e-bike Chain Wax uses the same proven and trusted, biodegradable wax/water emulsion technology as normal Squirt Chain Lube and is fortified with specialized high-pressure friction modifiers.The new Squirt e-Bike Chain Wax is slightly more slick than normal Squirt Chain Lube, which will stand up to higher torque pressure and will last longer in wet riding conditions.
