Green Oil Dry Chain Wax/Lube 100ml (Natural Cycle Care)
- Lubricates over for 80 miles
- Reduces chain wear and friction
- It's dry! Great for keeping trouser legs grease free, road bikes, triathlon and Bromptons!
Some people don't like using chain oil because it makes their trouser leg dirty on the way to work. Well, Green Oil Dry Chain Wax is the solution. Simply, put it on your chain, let it dry, and it leaves a semi-dry lubricating film on the chain.
Dry lubes tend not to last as long as wet lubes, and offer less protection in the wet. With Green Oil Dry Chain Wax, we're continuously improving the formulation to increase longevity and performance, with fewer applications between rides.
Why use Green Oil Dry Chain Wax?
Its important to keep your chain lubricated. Lubing your chain reduces friction, meaning you go faster and have a smoother gear changes. A lubricated chain results in fewer chain replacements too.
Green Oil Dry Chain Wax is great for dusty trail riding. We do occasionally have dry weather in the UK, which Dry Chain Wax is designed for. In these conditions, you get more airborne dust which can stick to the chain. Green Oil Dry Chain Wax is dry, so minimal dust is attracted. It's great for city riding too.
Green Oil Dry Chain Wax won't go on your trouser leg like other lubes, so its great for the commute to work on your fixie in Old Street, or your Brompton on the way to West Brompton. We also recommend Green Oil Dry Chain Wax for road racing, BMX riding and recumbent bikes.
Green Oil Dry Chain Wax is great for Bromptons and other folding bikes - where you're more likely to get oily whilst folding it up. Green Oil Dry Chain Wax means not getting chain oil on your clothing.
How is Green Oil Dry Chain Wax eco friendly?
Other dry lubes out there contain PTFE and petrochemicals, some even using toxic paraffin as a solvent They often use petrochemical wax too. Green Oil Dry Chain Wax uses bees wax within the formula, and after its life on your bike, is totally biodegradable. Part of the formula is bio ethanol made from sugar. This is grown in the EU, and is the solvent part of the formula. It's alcoholic so flammable.
Green Oil don't use PTFE because:
- PTFE creates a carcinogen in its production
- PTFE accumulates in the food chain, after leaving your bike chain
- PTFE is a polyflourinated chemical
Petrochemicals often harm the environment and aquatic life. Green Oil Dry Chain Wax however is petrochemical and PTFE free, contains no paraffin and is totally biodegradable. Every Dry Chain Wax bottle is made from 100% recycled plastic - so don't be surprised if the bottle is a curious colour!
