Speedmaster Wax Bicycle Chain Lube - Special formula allows the wax to stay on the chain longer. Unlike oil, wax does not attract dirt, as a result, it is long lasting, low maintenance, super clean and lowest friction on your bicycle chain. Simply bath your bicycle chain in our special formulated Speedmaster Wax. Each application can last up to 400+ miles dry in optimal condition or 200+ miles in wet/dirty condition.
Special formula allows the wax to stay on the chain longer but soft enough not to break apart and flake off in chunks. No maintenance needed in between rides unless the chain starts to squeak.
Super clean, slippery smooth and ultra quiet operational after treatment. A more direct power transfer through your pedal stroke results in wattage saving. All these benefits while keeping your drive train clean and free of excessive dirt built up with no maintenance needed. No more grease tattoos from chains!
Speedmaster Wax Metal Can offers better heat transfer as melted wax could reach as high as 190 F degrees. Unlike using a slow cooker, which can take as much as 15-20 minutes, the double boiler method offers a fast, easy and safer way to wax bath your chain.
One Speedmaster Wax can will last up to 10+ treatments. If you clean your chain before every wax treatment, it can even last much longer. For maintenance, if you must, use wax base squeeze bottle lube (optional) or simply repeat the wax bath treatment.
*Always proceed with caution, as melted wax can be extremely HOT.
How to wax your chain: Step 1: Place dry and clean chain (free of oil and dirt) into the wax can. If it is a new chain, make sure you strip off all factory lubricant. Step 2: Add water to pot (approx. 1 inches tall) and place the wax can into the pot. Bring water to boil. This method is also known as double boiler method. Step 3: Once the wax is melted, turn the heat down to simmer and let the chain submerge for about 10 minutes. Step 4: Turn off all heat and let it cool for a while (15-30 minutes). Lastly, take out the chain from the wax can. Once installed, it may requires a few revolutions to loosen up the wax for break-in.
How to re-apply wax your waxed chain: Easiest Method: To re-apply old waxed chain, simply repeat the steps. OR Cleanest Method: You can also clean your chain before wax re-bath, this way, the wax will last a long time for future use. To clean your waxed chain, you can use the following: A: Boil your chain in HOT water while agitate the chain to loosen up the dirt. B: Use a heated ultrasonic cleaner with a small amount of degreaser.
