Silca Super Secret Chain Lube - Immersion Jar - 360mLRegular price $115.95
SILCA Super Secret Chain Lube brings all of the super speed and silent running of a hot-melt wax-dipped chain to a drip applied wax (all of the benefits, none of the hassle!). Secret Chain lube also utilises the world's fastest, most lubricious additive, nano-scale Tungsten Di-Sulphide. Nanoplatelet WS2 has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient of friction of PTFE and 1/4 that of Molybdenum Disulphide (MoS2)
WHO IS IT FOR?
The cyclist looking to maximize performance through friction reduction, or the cyclist who loves a silent running bicycle.
WHY IT WAS DESIGNED
SILCA Super Secret Chain lube started out as a project to develop the fastest Hot-Melt wax lubricant available more than a year ago. Josh has been recommending Hot Melt Wax and helping Pro cyclists and triathletes wax chains for years and wanted to bring his lubricant formula to our customers, the challenge was how to consistently melt, dip and agitate the chain across different crockpot designs and temperatures. The project took a fascinating turn from the world of IndyCar when josh was introduced to a group that had developed a technology to put micro-scale wax powders into a solution that was quick drying and forms a coating that is indiscernible from hot melt dipping. The combination of air-drying liquid wax and Tungsten Disulphide would quickly prove to beat all currently available hot melt waxes in friction testing while being much faster and easier to apply.
Best of all perhaps is that this formula would prove to be very environmentally friendly, utilising 4 different types of wax, nanoplatelets of WS2 (Tungsten Disulphide), and mild alcohol to act as a carrier. This same alcohol is used in the SILCA Gear Wipes, making them a perfect product to clean and remove Secret Chain Lube.
120mL and 240mL bottles come with the precision applicator tip for dripping on your chain and 16oz. jar with 12oz. lube (leaving room for your chain) for dipping the chain into the solution.
The chain MUST be VERY clean and dry before applying.
Apply according to video and let dry for AT LEAST 12 hours for optimal results, 24 hours if applied in cool or humid weather conditions! We recommend applying the lube AFTER your ride so it's ready for next time!
NOTE: Over time the WS2 will begin to settle to the bottom of the bottle, shake well before using!
