SILCA T-RATCHET + TI-TORQUE KIT
There’s no substitute for a proper torque wrench, especially when over-tightening bolts can mean breaking precious—not to mention pricey—carbon components. Featuring a torque scale of 2Nm-8Nm, Silca’s T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque Kit is here to keep all your bike’s bolts properly fastened. This kit features 10 of the most common tool bits—2mm to 6mm hex bits; T10, T20 and T25 Torx bits; and a 2mm Phillips head—all made from strong Swiss S2 Tool Steel. An interchangeable magnetic design means this tool goes from screwdriver to ratchet to ratcheting T-Handle in mere seconds, making it versatile enough for a variety of repairs. Silca wraps it all up in a carrying case made of its signature duck-waxed canvas. $99; silca.cc
MAXIMA SC1 BIKE POLISH
We’ll let you in on a little secret. Before we photograph any bike for the magazine, we first hit it with Maxima’s SC1 Bike Polish. The results are impressive, working magic even on a gravel bike that’s been through a mud-fest. After washing your bike, just spritz some SC1 into a microfiber cloth and run it over basically everything but the brakes. It leaves your bike, regardless of material, with a nice luster, like you just bought it—there’s a reason Maxima calls it “new bike in a bottle.” Plus, it’s not just for looks. SC1 forms a protective film that repels mud, dirt and other debris to keep your bike cleaner and running smoothly for longer. And we’re fans of the bubblegum scent, too! $10.50 (12fl. oz.); maximausa.com
