zero friction chain lube data

Interpreting the results Zero Friction Cycling Test Data

ZFC testing occurs in 6 blocks,Results are given in wear % of chain life
0% equals No Wear and 100% means chain is at end of life.
Block 1. 1000km Dry riding at 250w, to test penetration/coating ability of the lube
Block 2. 1000km Dry contamination, chain is sprayed with sandy loam while riding to assess contamination resistance
Block 3. 1000km Dry riding no contamination. This tests whether the lubricant retains the contaminants or can clear them
Block 4. 1000km Wet riding. Chain sprayed with water to test water resistance
Block 5. 1000km Wet contamination, chain sprayed with water and sandy loam
Block 6. 1000km Extreme we contamination, chain is sprayed with water and 2x sandy loam contamination mixture.

The test is designed to replicate real world situations to help you choose the best chain lube for your bicycle. Up until 2020 only 1 lubricant had made it through all 6 test blocks below 100% wear, and 95% of lubricants tested fail the test before reaching block 6. SILCA WS2 technology has produced lubricants in all 3 lubricant type categories which make it to block 6 including the current all-time test winner, SILCA Secret Blend hot wax which has beaten the previous record holder by nearly 4x!
(Please note, there is no 'Dry Lube' category. Dry lubricants test poorly in efficiency and often will not survive to Block 2 of testing. These lubes tend to be mostly solvent mixed with dry lubricant powder and are both environmentally harmful as well as fast wearing and inefficient.)

super secret chain lube

Ultra Fast Chain Lube without chain removal

  • The first drip coating to fully penetrate the chain when applied on the bicycle!
  • ZFC says: "Ground breaking, the first drip coating to fully penetrate the chain, solving the problem of Squirt, Smoove, Tru Tension and even AB Graphene all of which need to be immersive to fully function. At the time of writing, SuperSecret has the lowest ever block 1 wear rate!"
  • ZFC also says: "The lowest dry contamination rate recorded to date, nearly no dirt can penetrate the chain making SuperSecret an excellent choice for gravel or Mtn riding, and it remains incredibly clean."
  • Dries to hard, slick coating that repels dirt and dust
  • Environmentally friendly: NO PFAS, NO VOC's
  • Stays clean to the touch
  • Cleanest drip chain lube available
  • 3 Size options including immersive tub for application

hot wax for bicycle chains

The World's Fastest Chain Lube

  • Lowest friction and lowest wear ever recorded in testing
  • ZFC Says: "At the end of 6000km of testing this smashes the previous test record by nearly 4x, simply astounding! We never imagined such a result was possible."
  • Lowest wear on the chain and drivetrain
  • Ultra quiet running.
  • Used by ProTour teams, World Champion Triathletes, and Olympic gold medalists
  • Top off with Super Secret Chain Coating when needed
  • Perfect for gravel (dusty and/or sandy rides)
  • Chain may be waxed inside the packaging if you do not want to dedicate a crock pot to the process!
  • Environmentally friendly: NO PFAS, NO VOC's
