LillyLube was ranked the #1 (non wax) based chainlube in the Feb. 2014 issue of Velo Magazine, VOL. 43/NO. 2. The article is titled, “HUNTING FOR SPEED, Searching for the fastest lubes on the planet”. Let’s face it – bicycle chains run in a dirty environment. Over 90% of all drivetrain wear comes from the grinding effect that dirt and grit has on your chain. Some chain lubes are very dry and pick up very little road grit. These lubes typically do a terrible job of lubrication, are very noisy and make your drivetrain feel horrible. Nobody likes a squeaky drivetrain. Some chain lubes are very wet and sticky. These lubes do an excellent job of chain lubrication, are very quiet and feel great at first. However, over time they pick up every spec of dirt and grit, develop a thick black gunk on your chain, and wear your drivetrain out prematurely. The only solution is a compromise between all of these variables. LillyLube is that perfect solution. LillyLube is a complex blend of heavy duty lubricants, purified solvents and proprietary additives that reduce friction and make your chain run smooth. LillyLube will penetrate and clean your chain, flushing out dirt and contamination. LillyLube is formulated to provide excellent lubrication and at the same time pick up a minimum amount of grit and dirt.
