Juice Lubes Chain Juice

The marketing blurb for this lube is remarkably plain - "Chain Juice Wet is a wet conditions chain lube which does what a wet lube should – it stays on your chain and keeps lubricating in wet conditions. Simple." Which is a nice change from the usual flowery guff that lube sellers use to hawk their wares. In return I'll be equally plain. This is the best lube I've used. Ever.

It doesn't look anything special, it's not a silly price and I have no idea if it's made from a secret blend of Himalayan spices, essential plant oils and the extracted glands of assorted rare animals. What I do know is that so far a single application has lasted for 566 miles. That's extraordinary and what's even better is that my chain still hasn't started squeaking yet. It runs nice and clean too, the rollers are shiny and the outside plates just have a dry crust of grime which should clean off nice and easy. I've not used it in truly foul weather, but it hasn't been all sunshine and warm breezes either. In the interest of scientific enquiry I should probably run the chain dry but after nearly 600 miles I've got itchy squirting fingers...

If you're a long-haul audaxer, a short trip commuter or just plain lazy, this is great stuff.

Verdict

Superb no-nonsense lube. The best I've tested so far.
