Cavity Protect wax coat £7.5

Winters might be getting milder but frames are getting thinner, to the point where corrosion can take hold alarmingly quickly and with expensive consequences.

BikeRadar score3.5/5

Winters might be getting milder but frames are getting thinner, to the point where corrosion can take hold alarmingly quickly and with expensive consequences. Unlike traditional wax based products, with Cavity Protect there is no need to store either the frame or the aerosol at room temperature prior to treatment.

For best results, shake the aerosol vigorously for about a minute and start by giving a really thorough blast down your frame's seat tube. Attach the thin straw to the nozzle and spray evenly through each of the frame's vent holes, rotating it to ensure even penetration.

Compared to other automotive products we've used previously (it's primarily used for preventing rot in high stress areas such as car chassis and bodywork cavities), a frame can be treated very quickly - in minutes - although clearing up the excess that oozes out unexpectedly adds time, so leave plenty of newspaper on the floor underneath where you're spraying to avoid a sticky floor.
