For the first time in known independently tested & proven history, we have a wax emulsion lube with zero initial penetration issues, this makes it vastly easier to live with when needing to do a proper chain clean post wet ride etc and re-apply, something that with other wax emulsion lubes was not easy as you had to do a lot of work indeed to try to negate initial penetration issues if not waxing. Well done to Josh and SILCA – not a cheap lube – but as is still always what I have found with SILCA, you get what you pay for.
After first thousand kms and 3 applications – you can see SILCA SS is exceptionally clean, this did not really change much for the next two thousand km’s making it one of the cleanest drip lubes ever tested.
So we have quite the highlight to shout about this test, in that at the end of the first 3000km of testing, Silca Super Secret was sitting at a
Cumulative wear of just 7.5% of the wear allowance.
The average wear for all lubricants tested to this point is 64%.
SILCA SS drip is now the clubhouse leader for lowest wear rate at end of first 3 blocks, and as mentioned above at this point in the test the chain was still exceptionally clean.
