Selecting the Right Lubricant for your Chain
The frequency in which you lube your chain varies season to season. In the wetter months, lubing the chain is a more regular occurrence. Water from the sky or the road has a tendency to wash away thinner, less tenacious lubricants so to address this we recommend a more viscous lube that will adhere to the chain despite the weather conditions.
In the warmer months, it’s dry and dusty. Too much lubricant will attract grit and grime and accelerate the drivetrain’s wear process. We recommend a dry lubricant that goes on wet and evaporates quickly leaving only the lubricating properties. The result is a lubricated chain with less opportunity for dirt build-up.
