Silca Super Secret Chain Lube : Wax Based Performance Cycling Lube Information

Season : 2021

Brand : Silca

Code : SIAMAC015ASY0

Lube is something that is often viewed simply as something to stop your chain rusting and even then there are plenty of cyclists - new and seasoned - that ignore the stuff entirely. Lube is so much more yet is almost never viewed as a performance enhancer.

Aside from the obvious necessity (yes - necessity) of preventing rapid wear on your expensive (relative to the cost of lube) drivetrain, good lube will not only make your kit last longer but it will also save you valuable effort.

There have been great steps forward in lubrication in recent months with notable releases from AbsoluteBlack and CeramicSpeed. Silca have been working on this one for a while and Josh Poetner (of Silca ownership) has been steadfast in his desire to create a range of high performance but user friendly lubes that benefit all riders - both in terms of drivetrain protection and performance gains.

Many at the top levels of cyclesport have long believed in the Hot Wax method of lubing drivetrains in order to get the ultimate performance. But for most of us it's a royal pain in the arse - time consuming and impractical - particularly given that most aren't chasing down world-beating times or looking for every possible advantage on our club run....
That said, there should be no good reason why we shouldn't be able to get close to the performance without having to deicate several hours to the task.

Enter Super Secret Lube.

Silca's new Super Secret Wax Chain Lube has all the benefits but none of the hassle. It combines the speed and silent running of a hot-melt wax-dipper chain to a drip applied wax lubricant. The Super Secret Chain Lube also utilises the world’s fastest, most lubricious additive - nano-scale Tungsten Disulfide - for maximum drive chain performance.

The Super Secret Chain Lube started as a project to develop the fastest hot-melt wax lubricant in early 2019. Josh Poertner, CEO of Silca, has been recommending hot melt wax and helping pro cyclists and triathletes wax chains for years and he wanted to bring the performance advantages to Silca customers too.

The project took a major turn from the world of IndyCar when Poertner was introduced to a group who had developed a technology to put micro-scale wax powders into quick drying solutions that form a coating that is indiscernible from hot melt dipping.

The combination of air-drying liquid wax and Tungsten Disulfide quickly proved to beat most currently available hot melt waxes in friction testing while being much faster to apply.

The nano platelets of WS2 (Tungsten Disulfide) in the Super Secret Chain lubes has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient friction of PTFE and ¼ that of Molybdeum Disulfide (MoS2).

The dry nature of the wax based lube means that it 'picks up' less, reducing wear and the lube formula is also environmentally friendly, utilising 4 different types of wax and a mild alcohol to act as a carrier.

  • Please Note : Lubrication should be performed on a VERY CLEAN chain for best reults and protection.

    1. Be sure to have chainline relatively straight and in the centre of the cassette

    2. Shake bottle well and open tip halfway

    3. Begin applying drip lube to top of rollers while pedaling backward. Be sure to apply at least 1 drop per roller and no more than 2 drops per roller while continuing to backpedal.

    4. Use fingers on top-bottom of chain to work the lube into rollers while backpedaling at least 3-4 revolutions.

    5. Pedal forward shifting all the way to top of the cassette, pedal for at least 3-4 revolutions.
    The extreme chain angle opens gaps between plates to allow the lube to better work into the chain. Continue pedaling, shifting through all gears on the rear cassette at least once.

    6. Stop pedaling and allow Secret Chain Lube to dry for minimum 12 hours, test results show that lube is fully hardened in 24 hours. ZeroFrictionCycling found SSCL to be best dry lube EVER Tested after 8 hours drying, but would be EVEN BETTER after 24 hours

    7. SILCA Gear Wipes may be used to remove any excess lube from chainrings if you desire a cleaner look.

    Note: Temperature and Humidity will affect drying time of SSCL, and the dryer it is when you ride it, the longer it will last. Drying time will also be affected by temperature, lube will dry faster in warmer temperatures and at lower humidity, and lube will take longer to dry in cold or more humid conditions. We recommend 24 hours as the optimal drying time.

    We recommend applying the lube AFTER your ride so it's ready for next time!

    NOTE: Over time the WS2 will begin to settle to the bottom of the bottle, shake well before using!
