i have used the regular prolink for years and it works great in dry conditions but does not last long in wet conditions. the xtreme is not noticeably thicker coming out of the bottle but definitely last longer in wet conditions, about 2 to 3 times longer for me. since it is still a thin bodied lube does not attract much dirt unlike some of the thicker bodied lubes i have used for wet weather riding in the past. i would recommend this to anyone who likes a thin bodied lube that can perform in wet conditions.
The ProGold Extreme is great stuff, it keeps the chain running smooth and quite a lot longer than other lubes, so you're not having to get your fingers dirty/oily as often and you can enjoy riding more!
I store the commute bike outside (balcony) so the chain loses lube over time. That and the fact that I am commuting in weather -although typically not in pouring rain. I have gradually moved from dry lube, to ProGold, and now to the 'Xtreme' product. It keeps working longer. Put it on liberally, wipe thoroughly, then let it sit overnight before you ride.
ProGold ProLink is my go-to chain lube, and it generally does fine in light rain. The ProGold Xtreme holds up much better in heavier rain and, like the lighter weight variety, doesn't gum up your drivetrain. The Xtreme does a great job preventing corrosion, which is a boon for bike commuters who don't have time to dry off and re-lube their chains after every wet ride to work...This is one of those rare products that sets the bar high and lives up to its promise.
Just discovered this product that has all the qualities of 'regular' Pro-Link with more durability. Impreceptible viscosity increase and I am getting 200 New England winter road miles in JanyFeb per application. Road chemicals, slush, and grime make little impact and the product stays on the chain! And as with 'regular' Pro-Link, cleanup is a quick wipe, dry, re-lube.
