Effetto Mariposa Mangiacatena Chain Cleaner Tool
🚚 Delivery Estimated between 29 February and 05 March.
If you want to clean the chain in a thorough way and reduce the amount of degreasing liquid used, Mangiacatena is the one for you. It’s the first chain cleaner equipped with lamellar elements at both ends, so that the chain can be cleaned by moving it in both directions, very useful also for e-bikes. Equipped with six rotating brushes and a sturdy handle.
The best way to clean the chain with minimum consumption of degreasing liquid
The lamellar elements at both ends retain dirt and liquid inside Mangiacatena, while the six rotating brushes - continuously wet with degreaser - also act mechanically on the chain
It can be used both on the lower and upper part of the chain, pedaling in both directions
Degreasing liquid or water can be added from above, without the need to open Mangiacatena
Made of shockproof and solvent resistant plastic. It can be refurbished with the appropriate replacement brush kit
It works with single-speed transmissions (maximum chain width: 9 mm) and 5 to 13 speed chains

Perhaps one of the best cleaning tools out there. It has multiple brushes which ensure no side of the chain is left untouched. Does a great job of getting the gunk out of the chain and getting it ready for a wash and then lubrication.
It does what it claims. In my research, I found this better than Park Tool, hence ordered it. I have given only 4 because the replaceable inner brushes are not available in India. I'll note down few pointers
1. Please wet your bike and the floor before using it, so it'll be easy to wipe it off. This is gonna throw the degreaser and gunk all the way out depends on your rotation speed.
2. Unlike other tools, this can be used on both bottom and top of the chain. Watch Company product youtube video for more info.
3. Follow Park Tool's official YouTube video to understand before and after good practices when using a chain cleaner.
4. I bought this out of of curiosity and as an enthusiast. If you ask me, my honest opinion would be a few hundred rupee Amazon brush, combined with a pair of tooth brushes could do the same work, but with an exponential difficulty. Otherwise, if recommend to buy Effetto Mariposa over other chain cleaners.
Also I thank bums on the saddle store to give us a taste of a range products as in other counties. Most of these products are not available nowhere else in India, or it'd come with a higher price tag, compared to BOTS.
