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.

Great at shifting grease and mud. once washed off it leaves a great finish,
Better trigger than the Pedro's bike cleaner with two options spray or stream

Rated 4 out of 5 by ps482 good wash
i ride both mtb and road bike and this wash performes well for both. However when the trail is very muddy, i need quite a lot of this wash to bring my bike back to decent look. once i spent up to one third of the bottle.
i'd bother much less if I lived in a house, but I have to keep my bike in my appartement, so it has to be clean.
anyway, i recommend this wash as it's far better than water and soap
катаю и мтб, и шоссе. смывка хорошо подходит для обоих. правда когда попадает на шоссейные колодки, они потом визжат дико километров 100. на качество торможения не влияет, впрочем. Когда заезжаю глубоко в грязь, требуется довольно много этой смывки, чтоб хорошо отмыть байк. Как-то я потратил треть бутылки.
Я бы не сильно заморачивался с чистотой, но приходится держать велы в квартире...
в любом случае, эта смывка мне больше нравится, чем просто вода с мылом. заказываю не первый раз. и скорее всего не последний

It does the work for you and you don't even know it till you wash it it down at the end. Break areas are cleaner than ever before. I have tried the other products. This stuff is... Gold plated Gold. Glad I got another 5 litres. Buy it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Awsome cleaner
This is the first and only cleaner I have tried. buy 5L and decant into hand spray - lasts ages. This stuff really works. Especially good for dried on mud, even on tyres. Disc brake friendly. It almost melts dirt and mud which is easily rinsed off without the risks from high pressure hoses or powerwash. Try it you won't look back!
