Rock”N”Roll Chain Lubricants 4oz
Rock”N”Roll Chain Lubricants has three chain lubes: The EXTREME, ABSOLUTE DRY, and GOLD. All three are formulated to clean and lube at the same time when applied.
Absolute Dry Lube
Hard Core Road – you can feel the difference as the chain will work smooth as glass. No chain noise or wax build-up. Road bike recommended.
Rain, slop & dust – this stuff is a must. When the going gets tough this stuff keeps your drivetrain clean, quiet, and super smooth. Perfect for mountain biking in all weather conditions.
Road or Mountain Bikes it dramatically improves pedaling & shifting. Creates a wet membrane that seals out water & dirt leaving a super clean chain. This Gold lube costs a little more than its Extreme, and Absolute Dry counterparts, but its really in a class of its own.
How it works
What’s going on is this: The formulation goes deep down into the chain and traps any dirt. Then, with the energy of the chain freewheeling backwards, the dirt and grit float to the surface so you can wipe it all off, leaving a new and clean application of lube inside the chain, where it’s needed. The lube down inside the chain creates a protective membrane to seal out dirt and moisture from the moving parts of the chain. As well as holding in place the best lube on the planet, for longer chain life, super smooth shifting and pedaling.
Many riders ask, “What is the difference between the Extreme, Absolute Dry, and the Gold?” The Extreme is for mountain bikes. Absolute Dry is for the road bikes. The Gold is for both mountain
and road bikes.
Bicycles, being on rubber tires, are not grounded, making the bicycle a static electricity machine. As the bicycle rolls along, positive charge build up will bring dirt and dust particles from the road onto the bike. The bike will discharge and do it all over again, bring up more dirt. Ever wonder why you have a perfect dust line on the front of your fork blades or on the cable housings. That’s how the bike gets dirty on the road, on dry days. The dirt is also going to stick to whatever is sticky on the bike. Of course, the chain is the number one spot. Road bikes generally tend to pick up more dirt from the discharge, so a thicker, dryer membrane is needed. On the other hand, the mountain bike needs something that can take lots of dust, and/or muddy slop being kicked up on the chain from the front wheel. With water crossing, too!
Shake well. Apply a stream of lube to the chain at the cassette (do not drip on the lube, like oil, because it is not oil). Get the chain really wet, this stuff cleans and lubes all in one. Freewheel backwards for about 5 seconds, then wipe off all the excess lube. All of it! You can’t wipe the chain too much, so really wipe it down good. For best results, we recommend applying the chain lubricant several hours before your ride (or just after a ride so your bike is ready for its next outing).
