Anyone ever seen or used this? Is it even real - seems too good to be real. If it is real, why aren't we using it to protect our bikes?

I've never heard of it but if it's as good as it looks, I'd buy it - surely it's got to be worth it if it's that good? If... ;)

I saw this featured on you tube greatest inventions its made with silica fibres and it does work on all surfaces even rough ones. The fibres create a very uneven area for the water to cling to........ I think the problem might be how long the coating lasts.

Indeed you can. But you can't get in everywhere with it and it doesn't do what that appears to do.

I've used ASF 50 for a few years and the bits you can get to it works fine on. However, the stuff you can't get to rusts like feck if you ride all year. So, this year I've treated all the bikes to the ASF treatment by Allyearbiker - not cheap but the bikes got a Hoofin clean and I was impressed with the application. Apparently it vaporises at lots of PSI and gets into places you can't get to with a spray can.

Worth a go I think lOl

It's just a nano-coating. Basically a molecular glass-ceramic coat. Been using similar stuff for yonks - it is NOT a substitute for regular maintenance.
