Grax On, Grax Off

Introducing the GRAX High-Performance Chain Lube, a revolutionary lubricant formula for gravel and off-road riders.

Long days riding gravel can make it nearly impossible to keep things clean, well-lubricated, and running fast. To counter this the manufacturers partnered with a spin-off from the University of Arkansas Nanotechnology Department to create a high-performance chain lube and cleaner, called GRAX. The results are in. Dirt or pavement, rain or mud, slop or muck, GRAX keep riders rolling faster, longer.

GRAX is short for gravel wax. It is a wax-based lube engineered to shed water, dirt, and mud, and keep chain rollers well lubricated and running smoothly through endless miles of abuse. The manufacturers tested GRAX's efficiency vs. several competitors in standard dry conditions, as well as the nasty stuff.

After countless hours in labs and four full seasons of riding gravel roads and trails around Northwest Arkansas they found GRAX to be the most efficient, and most durable, lubricant on the market.

The manufacturers tested two primary performance properties in GRAX:

1) its ability to repel moisture, and 2) wattage expenditure in both dry and muddy conditions.

GRAX was tested against multiple experimental hydrophobic lubricants as well as the most expensive and high-performing products on the market.

GRAX excels in all categories. It ensures you not only have the most efficient lube available but also sheds water and dirt better than any product. It shaves watts, keeps your drivetrain running smoothly and quietly for more miles in the most extreme conditions, and improves the longevity of your drive train components.

Allied (the manufacturer) strongly recommends using GRAX High-Performance Drive Train Cleaner for optimal grease removal after using GRAX lube.


  • Reduces energy loss in drivetrains
  • Easy applicator
  • Comes in a 4oz bottle with up to 20 applications
  • GRAX lasts approximately 350 miles and can be re-applied three times without a deep clean of your drive train.
  • Under severe conditions (mud, rain, etc) GRAX lasts around 100 miles

My new favorite lube

I've been using SCC lube most of the year, and have been happy with it, but decided to give the Grax a try. Application process is easy--it comes out of the bottle looking like Elmer's Glue, although a little more viscous. Run the chain backwards, and then through all your cogs, let it set for about an hour and you're ready to go. The Grax has held up nicely on my gravel rig during dry, dusty conditions for close to 300 miles. Quiet drivetrain and smooth shifting. It does a good job of shedding dirt, and I just brush the chain and cogs after rides. Grax has likewise held up well on my MTB, including a 30 mile rain soaked mudfest of a race. Highly recommended.

Worked well at Gravel Worlds

Used for Gravel Worlds this year. Chain stayed clean and couldn't tell a difference in performance over oil. Very happy with it.

One of the best wax based chain lubes I�ve used

Grax keeps the drivetrain silent and doesn�t attract excess dirt. It stays put on the chain and holds up well even in moderately wet conditions. My only complaint is that you need to keep it at room temperature and not leave it where it�s exposed to cold temperatures. It will thicken in the bottle and remain a very thick consistency even after exposed to warmer temps. Putting the bottle in some warm water will return the lube to liquid so you can lube the chain. This may discourage some people from purchasing Grax but I still recommend it.

Good for all bikes

I use this for both my road bikes and gravel bike. It makes the drivetrain quiet and running buttery smooth. I used Squirt before and it washed off by just riding under sprinklers. Grax stays on.
