Product Review: Putoline RS1 Wax Polish (£9.99)

What’s good about the Putoline RS1 Wax Polish?

I’ve never really used wax when washing bikes, but this silicon-free foam spray was drafted in to bring my 2015 long term test bike back up to scratch after a year of daily use. It’s easy to use – just spray and polish with a cloth. It doesn’t take ages to buff up to a good quality shine and despite using it rather liberally on my 2015 Kawasaki 1400GTR – which has acres of fairings – there still feels to be loads left in the 500ml can. After only spending a few minutes with the polish, the plastics looked almost new, with no visible streaks. The polish can be used on aluminium, carbon and titanium painted surfaces.

And what’s not?

Like standard, non-spray wax, it can build up around stickers and screws, leaving white residue around the edges of such raised parts. Since it’s a spray it can be a little messy, especially if it’s a little windy or you’re not paying attention to where you’re spraying. Spraying it onto the cloth first is better for those awkward places.
