Many cleaning products contain silicon, polish or other additives which have a detrimental effect on disc brakes. Problems caused range from squealing to total loss of power. We realised that the only way to stop these problems would be to produce our own range of cleaners.
Shifter is specially formulated by Hope to clean even the hardest grime and yet still be gentle enough not to damage your paintwork, carbon, anodised aluminium or brakes.
Contains no Sodium Hydroxide (caustic soda) which attacks aluminium and anodised surfaces. Sh1t Shifter contains a substitute component that acts as a very effective releasing agent cutting through dirt without attacking material surfaces
Contains no Silicon or similar polishing agents which both affect braking performance (both bike and disc brake friendly).
Environmentally friendly and biodegradable. The solution is Alkaline, containing no solvents, acids or CFC’s
A blend of several surfactants (an-ionic and cat-ionic) this makes it effective on both dirt and oil, and when blended together creates a third reaction called synergy giving further cleaning power.
Thick solution so it stays where you spray it allowing these reactions to occur on the dirt/oil.
Sequestriens are added to aid rinsing and prevent staining/streaking when dry.
Cleans with minimum of sweat, just a good hose pipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by westy33 Theres Hope yet...
Where do I start? Insert spray adaptor, pump a few times and out comes the BEST bike cleaner I've EVER used!
I've been, for many years, a true follower, user and all round praiser of M**-O**. I have the cleaner, the brushes and the sticker on my tool box. After running out recently, I had a look at getting some more, when I stumbled across this cleaner from Hope. First to hit me was the price, a good few quid cheaper than the rival and after a read of the reviews here, I thought I'd give it a go...How pleased am I now...VERY Happy!
Gave it a try today, after a water logged,sandy/muddy ride, effortless cleaning, just used a hose too! Sprayed it on, gave it a light scrub with a brush, then rinsed...PERFECT! Sprayed a bit on a smaller brush, did the usual chain/sprocket scrub, instant removal of old lube, grit and NO need for a separate chain clean! YES!!
Too say I'm going to use this product again would be an understatement, its now my cleaner of choice and I'm gonna give diluting it down a go, as per another review here!
There's finally Hope for a clean bike after every ride!

This stuff is very strong! Sprayed on my brand new Hope pedals it's taken the black paint off and left them looking purple.
Recommend but make sure to water it down.

Mud your bike, spray some hope, leave it and hose the mud down. Simple.

This products works very well, so much so that I dilute it with water to make it last a bit longer.
