Muc-Off are extending their lubrication range with the release of a new All Weather Chain Lube.
This brand-new formula is derived from a unique blend of renewable and readily biodegradable ingredients, which combine to produce a highly versatile high-performance lube.
Unpredictable weather conditions, and the decision to opt for either a Dry or a Wet Weather lubricant is often a gamble. All Weather Lube removes the element of surprise, meaning no more getting caught out when the conditions change. It’s a great option for the increasing numbers of time-pressured commuters out there who need a reliable and long-lasting product that works day after day irrespective of the weather conditions. Not only that, but it will also perform well on more demanding MTB, road, or gravel rides.
All Weather Lube joins the ranks alongside some long-serving fan-favourites, the Wet and Dry variants of Muc-Off’s Bio Chain Lube range which have been the go-to options for riders for over thirteen years now. This new lube produces low levels of friction, smooth and quiet gear shifting, as well as long-term durability, regardless of the conditions.
“We had to balance a number of key factors with this new lubricant – the challenge, as always with lube development, was to deliver a product which performs as efficiently as possible, for as long as possible. It needs to be tough enough to withstand rain, snow, grit, and grime, whilst also being the right viscosity for the chain to perform efficiently throughout the ride. All Weather Chain Lube does exactly that, and we’re proud to be helping our fans get themselves prepped and ready for whatever the weather throws at them.” ~ Alex Trimnell, CEO at Muc-Off
When applied to the chain, the lube quickly penetrates deep into every link, creating a durable, protective coating which guards against the elements and prevents metal-to-metal wear. Included in the formula is a UV tracer dye, which helps to make application more accurate, and ensure total coverage inside the chain. Muc-Off have utilised a blend of organic friction modifiers, which work to ensure the lube can stand up to even the toughest of rides, providing lubrication for long-distance on and off-road.
All Weather Lube is the latest in a long line of lubricant innovations which have come from Muc-Off’s in-house research and development centre. The same team of scientists who developed it also produced Ludicrous AF, the world’s fastest race lube, which is currently being used by teams such as INEOS Grenadiers and EF Education, and most notably featured on-board Filippo Ganna’s successful UCI World Hour Record bike last month.
