SMOOVE Chain Lube

As like with most chain lubes for best results you need to start with a dry clean chain.

If you’re going to develop a chain lube in the hot and dusty surroundings of South Africa and test it on their MTB stage-racing the chances of coming out with a great product are quite high.

They do make some strong claims around their product “SMOOVE outlasts the competition while keeping your drivetrain clean, dry and working effectively.” and so far so good. After around 200 miles of mountain biking the chain looks and feels as good as new.

The chain lube is on the wet side so make sure you apply at least a couple of hours before your ride but once dry it works exceptionally well.

A big plus is that it also keeps your chain clean so you don’t have to clean after every ride!

As the bottle has a longish fine tip it makes it easy to apply while being accurate.

As i’v not actually been using it long enough to need to reapply that is great to say i’v done 200 miles however unlike some other chain lubes which you just add to the chain lube with SMOOVE for best results you have to totally clean, dry and apply from scratch again. But I guess if you get as good results as it’s currently showing than it’s something you would be happy to do.

The added bonus is that the SMOOVE chain lube is 100% biodegradable and solvent free.

More Info:

​Developed in South Africa to last the worlds toughest MTB stage-racing events without the need for reapplication. Do not confuse SMOOVE with any other chain lubricant, as when this is applied correctly, SMOOVE outlasts the competition while keeping your drivetrain clean, dry and working effectively.

Long Lasting – SMOOVE™ UNIVERSAL CHAIN LUBE is a long lasting lubricant formulated to withstand even the most demanding conditions. Ride incredible mileage between applications.

Reduces Friction – SMOOVE™ also reduces friction, enabling you to unlock optimal performance. SMOOVE™ is self-cleansing, 100% biodegradable and solvent free. All this while being incredibly clean and dry.

Works in all conditions – Wet or dry? SMOOVE™ is extremely durable and one application lasts a bunch of rides, or a very long epic, effectively protecting your mechanical drive train components from wear and tear for longer than other white wax-based chain lubes.

Step 1 > Apply SMOOVE to a clean dry chain.

Step 2 > Apply on the inside of the chain while turning the pedals to ensure that the lube gets worked into the chain.

Step 3 > Let the lube dry for at least an hour.

Step 4 > Best results are achieved if lube is applied the night before.

Step 5 > Do not wipe chain after application.

Step 6 > Too much lube will cause residue to accumulate around the derailleur pulley wheels and cassette.

WARNING: SMOOVE functions incredibly well once applied to your chain in extremely low temperatures. However, it is important not to allow your bottle of SMOOVE to freeze. Store in temperatures no lower than 5 degrees celsius. If it freezes, SMOOVE becomes a paste that will not return to normal. This does NOT affect its performance after it has been applied to your chain, only during storage.
