    Synergetic Friction Test

    Electron microscopy of this phenomena was first reported by Paula Ussa Aldana at the University of Lyon in France a few years back. She was able to section the test samples to expose the tribofilm, showing exactly how the WS2 nano platelets are being held in the tribofilm of ZDDP.

    In SILCA testing, the use of a significantly more advanced base oil than used in the University of Lyon testing has shown further improvements in both wear and friction, while careful balancing of the formulation has allowed us to mass produce the resulting oil at an attainable price despite the exotic cost of some of the ingredients.

    SILCA Synergetic oil has tested internally to be the fastest and quietest oil-based lubricant ever tested, losing only 4.9 watts on 250 input (98.1% efficiency), however, it really begins to shine when focusing on longevity and durability of the chain and mating components. Best of all, because the lubricant forms a durable tribofilm at the metal surface, and is strongly attracted to itself, the lube proves to be exceptionally waterproof, remaining inside the chain even in testing under full water submersion, the lubricant is not displaced!

    Due to a bottling mistake our label is missing the words "Do Not Eat," so be warned this lubricant is not safe for consumption.

      Great on my indoor trainer

      While I did clean the chain thru a couple of turps baths, I like the fact you don’t have to do the full strip down on new chains. I relube every month after about 500kms & quick clean it in Ceramic Speed drivetrain cleaner after 4 months. Done over 10000 kms on this chain so far & no wear showing at all. I added a couple of 5mm stainless steel ball bearings into the bottle to ensure the lube is well mixed. It made a heap of difference !

      If there was a zero star option, I'd select it.

      I purchased a bottle of the Synergetic lube about 2 weeks ago and applied it to a factory lubed chain on my brand new Canyon Speedmax CF SLX Shimano Di2 12 speed. I had been riding the bike on my Wahoo Kickr for about 3 weeks prior to applying the Synergetic lube. I followed the instructions for application that I found on the Zero Friction website. On the first ride I immediately noticed a significant increase in chain noise, with a recurring click/tick noise. Following the first ride I thoroughly wiped the chain down and re-applied the lube. Next ride chain noise was still really bad. I’ve repeated the process of ride, wipe-down, re-lube 5 times now and the chain noise is terrible. Prior to applying the Synergetic lube the drive train was smooth and quiet.

      I have two recordings taken on 2/16/24

      I took the recordings because a friend was interested in buying the Synergetics lube and asked me to record the before and after.

      Recording # 1 is the drive train with the factory lubed chain pre Synergetic application.

      Recording # 2 is post Synergetic application, you can clearly hear the click/tick noise and overall more noise.

      Recordings were made within 10 minutes of each other, just the time it took to apply the Synergetic lube per the instructions. Gearing was exactly the same for each recording, big ring front and 9 th gear.

      I'm happy to share the recordings, please email me at so you can make an informed decision before buying.
