Start stopping with Cleanskin brake components

There is no doubt about it, brakes are a critical part of your bike setup. From the levers to the pads and the rotors, they all need to work in harmony with each other. But choosing what’s right for you can be a journey in itself. Quality brake components can be pricey, so doing some research and testing is the only way to be sure that you have the right setup for you, but that will hit your wallet pretty hard.

Cleanskin MTB has been offering an ever-growing range of bike components, all at a very competitive price, hence the name, Cleanskin.  They focus on stripping out the unnecessary aspects of product design and production and focus on supplying riders with gear that not only performs but also enhances the ride. With the sole aim to offer refined and purposed products that are perfect for Mountain Bikers of all kinds at a lower price point than the major brands. 

Check out what we thought of the UNITE 1000 light, the Digital Mini Shock Pump and the C-Flat pedal.

We recently received a pack of goodies from Cleanskin MTB which included brake rotors, rotor bolts and pads. There are a lot of things we like about Cleanskin, but one of them is the no-frills recycled cardboard packaging. This alone helps to reduce costs to the rider.

Cleanskin MTB use recycled materials for their packaging as much as possible. Another reason they can keep prices down for us riders.

Cleanskin MTB offers a good range of pads to fit most popular brake systems on the market. A great option if you go through pads quickly. We suggest buying bulk, it will save you in the long run. The pads are available in two compounds; sintered or Organic so you can get the best option for your riding style.

All Cleanskin pads are tested to offer the highest performance and come with a high-quality spring retainer. We’ve not had any issues with them to date and can’t tell the difference between these and the major brand version.

From RRP $18.95



Conclusions

The Cleanskin MTB products continue to impress with an ever-growing and clearly useful range of components being launched. Match that with their aggressive price point and high-quality manufacturing, and they offer a very attractive solution for riders wanting to spend less but still have confidence in what they are buying.

There are so many brands on the market all fighting for our attention to try out their range of products with glossy and high budget advertising campaings. Experimenting with different products can be costly to the wallet, but with the Cleanskin MTB range offering such a great price point, why wouldn’t you check them out?

Us riders tend to be a little cautious with unfamiliar brands, so making that exploratory shift can be a little slow, but on the other hand, we’re an adventurous type of people and have a sense of curiosity. We say you should throw that caution to the wind and try Cleanskin MTB products out for yourself.
