Silca just released a new product, dubbed Super Secret Chain Lube. The “secret”? NanoPlatelet WS2, a material that has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient of friction of PTFE and 1/4 that of Molybdenum Disulfide. In other words, it’s slick. And that bike! I’ll try to get some on hand soon and get back with a review.

What is it?
SILCA Super Secret Chain Lube brings all of the super speed and silent running of a hot-melt wax-dipped chain to a drip applied wax (all of the benefits, none of the hassle!).  Secret Chain lube also utilizes the world’s fastest, most lubricious additive, nano-scale Tungsten Di-Sulfide. NanoPlatelet WS2 has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient of friction of PTFE and 1/4 that of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2)

Who’s it for?
The cyclist looking to maximize performance through friction reduction, or the cyclist who loves a silent running bicycle.
