WTB VOLT 142 SADDLE

A wider chair

A good saddle is priceless, and WTB makes some of the best on the trail. The Volt is WTB’s medium-padding “chair” that is available in several rail materials and now three different widths. The 142-millimeter-wide Volt sits
in the middle of the line, and there is an even wider 150-millimeter option. Pricing on the 142 starts at $40 for the Comp level and peaks at $130 for the Team. Check out www.wtb.com or your local bike shop to order one.

RED MONKEY CAM GRIPS

Soft and ergonomic

We are big fans of Red Monkey’s Karv silicone grips. The new Cam is another take on its established line of lightweight grips. The Cam has a multi-position ergonomic shape that riders can rotate to find the most comfortable position. These grips are 100 percent silicone and made right here in the United States. The Cam will fit 22.2-millimeter bars and is 133 millimeters long. Retail price is set at $21.50 online or at your local shop. www.redmonkeysports.com

MEAN GREEN CLEANER AND DEGREASER

Keep everything clean

There are a lot of good degreasers available these days, and Mean Green is hoping to give riders something stronger than the rest. Mean Green Degreaser can be used on anything from kitchen stovetops to bicycle chains and even concrete or laundry stains. This degreaser comes in a spray applicator bottle in 16-, 32-, 40- and 128-ounce sizes. Check your local hardware store or bike shop to pick up a bottle. www.meangreendegreaser.com
