Description

For a Smoother Ride — Silca Super Secret Chain Lube

The SILCA Super Secret Chain Lube brings all the speed and silent running of a hot-melt wax-dipper chain to a drip applied wax.

Composed of the most lubricious additive — nano-scale Tungsten Di-Sulfide. The ingenious NanoPlatelet WS2 has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient friction of PTFE and 1/4 that of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2). Best of all, this formula is incredibly environmentally friendly. Utilizing 4 different kinds of wax, WS2 nanoplatelets, and a mild alcohol to act as a binder.

For the cyclists searching for a way to maximize performance by reducing friction, or for those who just prefer a silent running bike, turn to the SILCA Super Secret Chain Lube. Prevent additional wear and opt for a smoother ride, leaving you with an almost effortless performance boost.

Lube Specs:

  • World's fastest nano-scale Tungsten Di-Sulfide
  • NanoPlatelet WS2 has less than one third the friction of the leading brand
  • Environmentally friendly ingredients
  • All the benefits of a hot-melt wax dip with none of the hassle
  • The chain should be VERY clean and dry before applying
  • Let dry for at least 30 minutes. Silca recommends using after your ride so it's ready for next time!

    I'm a convert!

    I use super secret in between hot waxes. The reduction in chain wear is amazing and makes this stuff a real bargain compared to oil lubes. Plus it feels so nice to ride a clean and silent waxed chain! I'm never going back.

    This stuff really works !

    I have used Silca drip lube for 3 years now.

    I have a Campy 12 speed chain that Campagnolo requires pinning . Hence no quick link.

    I completely degreased the new chain of factory grease and hot waxed with Silca Hot Melt wax in January of 2022.

    I have cleaned and drip waxed it on the bike every 125-150 miles for 7500 miles and it only measures %0.18 mm wear on my KMC digital chain checker. I expect to get 10,000 miles on this chain before I change it at 0.40% wear, which will still be before minimum recommended replacement.

    The chain runs quiet and shifts smooth. The only time I use a different lube (Silca Synthetic lube) on my gravel and fat bike as they see a lot more rain and mud, with greater maintenance intervals.

    Great stuff and BTD has sales quite often. Sign up for the Gold Program and save even more .

    Not for me . . .

    I can't comment on the lower friction claims, as I don't have the equipment to measure that. This lube makes my chain and gears very dirty, black and greasy. It's way to much work to do a proper after bike cleaning. I generally re-lube every other ride, for optimal performance. I wipe down the chain and gears before re-lubing, and after lubing to remove any excess lube.

    I'm going to stick with Boeshield, even if there is a little more drag. I get about 4000 miles per chain, on the road, with only slight wear/stretching.

    Pretty Slick Stuff

    With the advent of quick-links for our chains (finally!) taking the time to periodically clean and lube your chain thoroughly has never been easier. For years I never thought there was a whole lot of difference between lubes as long as you used something, but then came FrictionFacts.com showing us the massive difference between lubes and chains and I started paying more attention. For those of you who do the hot wax thing, this stuff sure looks similar when you're done with the process, and it is certainly more conveniently than having to cook.

    For my everyday riding I am not that persnickety but being a serious time-trialist, when it comes to my time trial bike I spare almost no expense. So after watching Silca's vids and reading about this product I bit. I took the time to clean my chains (I bought a second so I could quickly rotate) as suggested and applied the SSSCL by completely submersing the chain so the stuff could penetrate deep into the pins and rollers.

    I squeegeed it off and hung to dry as instructed. Upon reinstallation my drivetrain felt "like buttah." The question now will be how durable the stuff is. If it indeed lasts roughly 200 miles after a completely thorough cleaning and application, then the higher cost can certainly be justified for everyday use. If you are careful during the process, you really use very little per application. For right now I plan to use it only on my TT bike, but that might change going forward.

    I just raced with this lube yesterday in the state championship 40k TT here in NC. Everything I did and used was near identical to last year on an identical course, and I was almost one minute faster. And at 61, I ain't getting any younger! Was it the SSSCL? Who knows for sure, but I can't stop using now! Wait for a sale and give it try.

    Silca Super Secret

    I began hot waxing the chains on my Tri bike and my road bike. This is the recommended product for maintaining optimal chain lubrication in between waxing. It is a little pricy, but the technology is what it is. You either subscribe to the idea or you don't. There's no real in between stance with hot waxing chains. I find that this goes on fairly well, but it does drip off the rollers a little too readily. It's a little tricky to get it to sink down in the tiny little spaces. The best you can do is double drip on every roller as you rotate the pedals backward. There are videos out there with tips and tricks. Good luck.

    Great in combo with hot wax

    Using the full Silca wax line this summer and really happy with it so far. Much cleaner for roadside issues, easier to clean and freshen up wax, seems like a winner.

    So far this has worked fabulous.

    I have started to wax all of my chains. After about 300 miles my chains need some new lube. I drip this lube onto each link, work it into the chain a bit, and let it stand overnight and am good to go for at least the next 200 miles.

    Great lube!!!

    I cleaned my chain per video and submerged the chain for thirty minutes. Wiped off excess and rode 30 miles. Hardly any road grime. I rode 200 more miles and chain and gears are clean; however I always wipe chain before any ride but I noticed very little grime. Chainrings and derailleur chain wheels are clean. Very happy with product.
