Reduced Dirt Build-Up For Easy Cleaning

Protective Layer & High Gloss Finish

Enhanced Hydrophobic Performance

Pushing boundaries in the Cycling sector

UK-based Tru-Tension designs and manufactures products for biking enthusiasts, from tools and cleaning products for commuters and adventure riders, to lubricants and accessories for high performance motorcycle racing.

Since successfully securing a substantial investment from retail guru Touker Suleyman on BBC’s Dragons’ Den back in 2018, Tru-Tension has grown from strength to strength, expanding its range of high-quality bike maintenance solutions. 

Following a programme of in-house research and testing, the leading innovator launched of a brand new detailing spray enhanced with AGM’s industry-leading Genable graphene dispersion technology.

Extended performance benefits

Tru-Tension suggests the graphene-based spray offers an unrivalled high gloss finish that also acts as a protective layer to leave paintwork glistening, and that the newly formulated hydrophobic coating also reduces dirt build-up to make future cleaning easier.

The Graphene Bike Detailer product represents a further milestone for both companies in bringing graphene nanoplatelet-based products to the wider market.

The brand is now available to purchase in Halfords and many other national retailers, as well as through the Tru-Tension website:

Transformational car care chemistry
