“UFO drip must be shipped via road freight. Any orders including UFO drip will be sent as standard shipping. If you need to have other product sent priority, please order those on separate order with priority shipping selected, and UFO drip as separate order with standard shipping”

It has taken a long time, and it isn’t cheap – but finally it is here – a drip lube that is as fast as waxing, and sets to an actual solid (not tacky like other dry lubes), so it is just as contamination resistant as well and will remain extremely close to its lab test performance for the lifespan of each treatment.

Why should you buy UFO Drip Lube vs Molten Speed Wax?

Waxing will never be for everyone, so if you would rather drip speed on vs having a pot full of it – this is the lube for you!

Perfect for re-treating race chains or making your own race chains (after initial chain break in and clean).

Follow instructions closely – any questions at all re initial cleaning of chain and application don’t hesitate to ask.

*If you do not wish to have to faff around with properly cleaning off factory grease for using UFO drip lube, ZFC has 3 great options for you depending on your budget; 

  1. A MSW race chain – this chain has undergone a huge amount of precise preparation to make the fastest all conditions race chain. Once that treatment has worn off – start adding UFO drip lube.
  2. A YBN chain broken in by ZFC which is then ultrasonically cleaned and treated with Molten Speed Wax. A great mid point between a no prep chain and a fully prepped race chain.
  3. A YBN chain ultrasonically cleaned of factory grease and treated with Molten Speed Wax.

You will find MSW race chains as their own  product, and options two and three are selections you can make with YBN chain product purchase.

Why should you have a dedicated race chain?

Rocking up to races on the same chain you hammer away at in training is simply nowhere near as smart as having a dedicated race chain. Especially if using drip lubes – your chains low friction coatings and platings are quickly compromised, they become heavily contaminated with abrasive particles, and your training chain wears. Even a small amount of wear = higher friction. Any contamination just slows things down and it is really really hard to fully clean your training chain such that it is perfectly clean – you really need an ultrasonic and know how to really use it to get near this. And there is a reason why world tour teams usually swap out their chains every 500 to 1000km – low friction coatings are compromised by then with drip lubes – so they reach for their next free chain.

The thing is – you will always need another chain. It is usually not even that far away (for drip lube users) if you are a racer / do sportif’s, grand fondo’s – as you will be merrily training away. So having a dedicated race chain does not cost you anymore, you are simply pre buying your next chain – and keeping it mint by using it just with UFO (or MSW) for races.  Then when training chain reaches 0.5mm wear, Race chain moves over to become training chain, get new chain to have as your mint race chain.

It is one of the smartest and cost effective ways to save you more watts than if you spend a bundle on bearing upgrades.  Genius!
