The best product ever is a nice dry shed
Other than that I have good result with august race products.
The best in my humble experience is from promarine but very expensive.
An alternative product in the Netherlands is “groene zeep”
green soap. It protects and clean your tube very wel for less than nothing only apply it more often.

August race UV protector is a bloody good product. Really long lasting. All these products are quite expensive but go a long way and worth the money!
