Finish Line is best known for manufacturing specialty bicycle lubricants and related products for the maintenance of bikes. As a former bike mechanic, I’ve used their lubes and grease for years. Recently they sent over a care package with some of their new products for us to try out, including the Fiberlink Tubeless Sealant, Max Suspension Spray, and Ceramic grease.
Fiberlink Tubeless Sealant
Finish Line FiberLink Tubeless sealant uses a latex formula with a secret sauce: Kevlar fibers are added to improve the adhesive seal and add longevity. Suitable for MTB, gravel, and road tires, it’s available in 8oz ($12.99), 32oz($34.99), and 1-gallon ($110) containers.
Finish Line Ceramic Grease
I’ve used Finish Link grease extensively in the past. Their Ceramic Grease adds ceramic particles, fluoropolymer additives, and non-toxic synthetic oils to optimize the efficiency of bottom bracket, hub, and headset bearings, as well as being suitable for lubing cables, posts, and any threaded assemblies.
Available in 2oz (pictured, $7.99) and 1lb ($24.99) options.
Max Suspension Spray
Max Suspension Spray is made of polysiloxane and advanced fluoropolymers and formulated to fight stiction, condition and protect seals, o-rings and other rubber bits. While not a suitable replacement for ongoing fork maintenance and lower leg service, it should be helpful, especially with bikes that are a bit older. Fork seals do harden up over time, and having the suspension spray on hand could go a long way toward improving the action of an old fork or rear shock.
MSRP: $7.99 (9oz aerosol can)
Mechanic Grip Gloves
Also pictured: the Finish Line Mechanic Grip Gloves. Unlike single-use latex gloves, the Grip Gloves are designed for reuse, which makes them a good item to have for working on your bikes while reducing waste in the trashcan. I’ve always been bad about protecting my skin from chemicals and solvents, so having these onhand (I have a box of laxtex gloves in the garage too, but rarely don them) will be great and make it easier to keep my hands clean.
