Maxima's twist-open nozzle is the best applicator that we have used for viscous type chain lubes. It produces a needle-thin stream that prevents unnecessary waste. The cassette and chain in the pic has three rides on it - one in wet and two in dry conditions.
|Maxima's mad scientists produced a wax-based chain lube that actually stands up to the rigors of real mountain biking. Similar wax-based products that we used previously managed to keep the chain clean, but did not last very long at the actual lubrication part of their job titles. Maxima Chain Wax could go for three hard rides in dry conditions before we perceived enough noise to remember that we had a chain - and we would have continued to ride without a re-app, but the stuff smells so good that it encouraged us to use it more often. In rainy or wet conditions, Chain Wax was good for one hard ride in the rain and for two sessions where water crossings and muddy sections were frequent. In all cases, our chains remained visibly cleaner. Perhaps the best aspect of using Maxima's chain lube was the intelligently chosen applicator nozzle. All chain lubes should be this easy to use - and the twist action positively seals the nozzle so it won't leak in your tool box or hydration pack. Highly recommended. - RC|
