Finish Line's Ceramic Wax lube dries to form a low friction ceramic wax coating that dirt and grime are not attracted to. It is a wax based lubricant with nano-sized platelets of ceramic boron nitride and micron particles of fluoropolymer. The coating is enhanced with each application, but does not have a wax film buildup like many wax lubricants. The coating also doesn't have a wetness or stickiness like many lubes that dirt and dust sticks to and absorbs. 4 oz squeeze bottle.

I usually only use wax lube in the winter because it doesn't last on long rides but this product is much better than others I have tried. Without the grit and grime chains last longer and won't tattoo your leg or stupid cat that walks under the bike. Using wax lube takes a little more planning as you can't use it on the way out the door, but I think it works better than all the other spaceage oil lubes I've tried.
This lubricant works GREAT for chains and other applications! I use it for my Speedplay pedals as well. I've noticed that it will help clean a surface if you apply some before cleaning it (like the Speedplay pedals). Dries great! Leaves only a thin wax film (No smells once dried).
It may not last very long between rides (100ish miles), but reapplying it is easy. Just make sure you shake the bottle before each use.
HIGHLY recommend if you're looking for a low-friction dry lubricant, but if you want to ride longer, I'd recommend Tri-Flow instead. (It smells though)
If you use it directed, the liquid will clean off a lot of grime and deposit ceramic lube that will dry on the chain, the mixture has a lot of cleaner with a little lube, you can see the ceramic white material at the bottom of the bottle before you shake it, about 10% lube/90% cleaner, for that reason I wonder if it's a good value, I'm running through it pretty fast and it's questionable whether the chain is really clean. The lube quiets the chain/gears for summer conditions, I haven't used in rainy weather much, I'm anticipating needing to put it on after every ride in the rain. Seems like almost all lube formulas are going this way, but Finish line does make a dry teflon lube that seems to have more lube per bottle, I like that one better.
Great job keeping my drivetrain clean. It last probably about as long as any dry lube on the market. Biggest drawback I experienced was build up after multiple applications made my chain very stiff. Clearly costing valuable watts on the road. Went back to my wet lube and noticed an immediate improvement.
Keeps your chain cleaner than the finish line dry lube and others Ive used, however, it doesn't last as long. Ive used this lube dozens of times in the past few months. Ive used this for the road, mtb, cross and in cold, hot, dry, wet, weather though it lasts a bit longer in not so dry weather it is always dry here in my area. Once I get past the 25 mile mark my chain starts squeaking. My rides are quite long so I need something longer lasting so I will stick with the finish line dry lube instead. Recommended if your rides are short or you need the absolute cleanest chain.
I tried multiple different dry lubes recently after watching several videos online on the topic. Difficult to compare them in real life. I reapply this lube very frequently - after 300-400 miles. I also wipe the chain gently after almost every ride, so I loose some lube there. So I noticed this lube collect relatively little dirt compare to others.
Switched from Dumonde Tech to Finish line ceramic wax. It seems to hold up better against light rain or just puddles. Slowly switching on all bikes (6) and see. I used it a year ago but a local shop convinced me about the merits of the Dumonde Tech lube. You need to shake it very well and let it dry after wiping of the excess.
