Krush

KRUSH was born out of passion, a passion to be outdoors, in the mountains, living it up and pushing the limits! The crew at KRUSH are the people out on the trails, up the mountain, pushing it to the edge at every given opportunity. Along with the passion for shredding comes the love for the bikes we ride plus the drive to keep them maintained at the highest level for maximum performance and reliability. The humble MTB and the way we ride them has changed a lot over the last 20 years. The bikes have become super high-tech, the trails and descents more demanding on both the rider and the bike. With all this in mind, we at KRUSH felt it was time to develop a range of cleaning and maintenance solutions to match.
