Squirt Clean Long Lasting Chain Lube 120ml
About this deal
If you take quiet running as a proxy for low wear (noise = friction = wear), this seems a very effective lubricant.
It has unique characteristics: stays exceptionally clean, runs at optimally low resistance, lasts for the duration of a marathon ride and is biodegradable. I'm finding that I need to re-lube less frequently and the chain stays so much cleaner, a real boon if you have a rear puncture.
WD40 or equivalent are effective at displacing moisture from your chain, so they can be useful to help stop it from rusting after you've cleaned it. Conversely, when it was stinking wet last winter I found myself riding more between chain cleans simply because the drivetrain kept running so smoothly. With a claimed application duration of roughly 600km, the lubricant set a new record during ZF testing as the lowest cost-to-run lubricant.
This should be one of the drip chain lubricants you should consider for all-around riding protection. Anyway, I’m feeling healthy for the first time in ages so I’m looking forward to lighter evenings and cold sunny morning rides. Because it doesn’t attract grit and dirt like a wet lube, you can simply add a new application of dry lube to keep the drivetrain running sweetly.Additionally some of the lubes featured here were also tested in conditions designed to simulate riding in the rain. Additionally, Brentjens has won two silver medals and three bronze medals at the World Championships, of which three were won in the marathon discipline. In the wet, CermaicSpeed recommends its wet UFO lubricant over this one, so take a look at this if this sounds like a better option for your riding.
In 2023 he won the title again but this time it was alongside American Christopher Blevins, his partner from 2022 when they finished 2nd.Wet lube works fine in the winter but come the summer it can get a coating of dust like sherbet on a Dib Dab. As sticky liquids, wet chain lubes flow into the nooks and crannies of your chain to lubricate it, and flow back in when displaced by pressure while dry chain lubes use a volatile carrier to wash waxy lubricant into your chain; the carrier evaporates leaving a solid lubricant. Squirt are not a new name on the UK cycling scene, nor is their chain lube a wholly unknown product.
