The Squirt Lube is the best known wax in the cycling world. Squirt Dry Lube Wax reduces drivetrain friction. The wax keeps the chain running smoothly and shifting properly, even in the poorest conditions. In order to optimally use Squirt Lube, you must first degrease the chain and moving parts, even with a new chain. You then have to let the drivetrain dry up. Finally, you apply 1 or 2 layers of Squirt Lube to the chain. Let this soak in as well before riding your bike. Degreasing after your ride is no longer necessary. After an extremely dirty ride, simply wipe the chain with a cloth drenched in Squirt Lube. This method can improve the durability of your chain and sprockets by up to 40%. The Squirt Lube is 100% environmentally friendly and bio-degradable.
