If you’ve ever wondered how wax chain lubes work, why they’re better, or what graphene is and how it works as a lubricant, you’re in luck.
I have Silca owner Josh Poertner with us today, and we go deep into all things chain lubricant, including a better way to lube your chain that’s surprisingly easy way and massively effective, no matter what type of chain lube you use.
From the challenges of sourcing high quality and authentic graphene to the mixing and formulating, we cover everything you want to know about how it works, and why, when it’s so expensive, you should really still use it. It’s not just about saving watts, and it could save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.
The Silca Hot Wax X may not look like much, but this little tub will probably outlast your bike. Check the full tech story on it (and some other recent products) for all the details.
