Dry Weather Chain Lube - Suitable for all bikes
Fenwicks Dry Weather Chain Lube Excellent lubrication in dry, dusty environments. A very effective synthetic lube that has low build up properties, resulting in exceptionally clean operating conditions with outstanding performance.
Most lube brands actually talk about the make-up of the lube dry, wet, mineral or synthetic etc. rather than the type of environment the lube is designed to be used in.
Synthetic oils are far superior to mineral oils (petrol chemical based) in reducing friction, wear, corrosion and their longevity, due to the ability to be perfectly blended to bespoke formulas giving the desired mechanical and chemical properties.
For bicycles wet style lubes offer the most protection as the operating temperatures necessary for solid particles in dry lubes i.e. PTFE, graphite, etc are rarely reached to maintain their mobility. Therefore once the dry particles have been pushed away from the touching surfaces then they do not return.
The environment plays a major roll as contaminates soon become introduced. The oils ability to cope which such conditions depends upon the blend of additives used to construct the oil. As conditions in the UK vary so wildly from one day to the next it is very difficult to be able to provide the perfect lube. Compromises can be made but that?s not good enough for todays racing enthusiast and avid cyclist.
Fenwick's have developed synthetic lubes for UK and European riding conditions. The advantages to using these oils are;
- Smoother, quieter functioning bike.
- Increased protection against corrosion.
- Decreased wear.
- Increased maintenance periods.
- Reduced environmental contamination, i.e. cleaner operation.
- Environmental benefits are less waste oil, lower volumes used, more tenacious therefore less trail contamination.
Fenwicks Dry Weather Chain Lube, is s specific blend of synthetic ingredients with additives to reduce corrosion, (corrosion inhibitors, antioxidants, and metal deactivators), anti wear and friction modifiers, anti static and a little extra to reduce evaporation.
