The benefits of a race chain treated with Molten Speed Wax in the world of dirt, dust, water and mud is even more stark in this environment due to just how fast an oiled chain becomes an industrial grinding paste chain with a huge increase in friction. Again would you take the seals off all your bearings and then go and race in these conditions?! Dare you to try it one time and see how your bearings feel afterwards!!
You don’t have a choice about your chain being fully exposed to this environment, but you can choose to either;
- Run an oil / liquid lubricant that will import a lot of this environment and shove it into all the hard working parts of your chain.
- Choose a chain treated with Molten Speed Wax and powder which will be much lower friction at the start, and due to being a solid is greatly resistant to friction increases even in the off road environment.
