Muc-Off is now selling chains pre-treated with the company’s Nanotube Speed Film, a treatment developed specifically for Bradley Wiggins’ hour record. Like similar products already on the market, these chains are pitched at racers but should please anyone looking to draw marginal gains from their drivetrain.
The friction-reducing treatment, which Muc-Off claims can deliver power savings of up to 6 watts, is also said to provide more than 400 miles of dry weather lubrication or 250+ miles in wet and muddy conditions. They also claim that there’s not sharp drop-off in performance, as can be the case with speed-optimised chains treated with dry wax.
Each chain gets hand treated with the Nanotube formula
While they don’t reveal much about this treatment, the Nanotube Speed Film is said to contain a new ‘military-grade additive’, driven deep into each chain link for 100% coverage.
