Silca Super Secret Chain Lube



Very quiet, slick and clean wax-drip lube that redefines how good a lube can be
Makes your chain very, very slippery, quiet and clean
Doesn't last past 75km in typical UK conditions

At every product is thoroughly tested for as long as it takes to get a proper insight into how well it works. Our reviewers are experienced cyclists that we trust to be objective. While we strive to ensure that opinions expressed are backed up by facts, reviews are by their nature an informed opinion, not a definitive verdict. We don't intentionally try to break anything (except locks) but we do try to look for weak points in any design. The overall score is not just an average of the other scores: it reflects both a product's function and value – with value determined by how a product compares with items of similar spec, quality, and price.

What the scores mean

Good scores are more common than bad, because fortunately good products are more common than bad.

Silca's Super Secret Chain Lube uses the very latest tech to put a new spin on the age-old waxed-chain preparation. Friction is next to non-existent and it makes your chain silent as the grave – but at a cost in money and maintenance.

Few areas of cycle maintenance are as contentious as chain lubrication. What lube you use, how and how often, and to what result is fraught with multiple confounding factors. Variables such as the lube, the chain itself, age, preparation process, cleanliness, weather, ride duration, frequency, ride surface and bike storage all impact the end goal of having a chain that stays clean-ish, lasts a long time, is quiet and shifts quickly.

For many, the gold standard of chain care is the hot wax method, where a stripped-clean chain is immersed in a molten pot of pure wax on the stove for a long time or until your spouse catches you, then removed, wiped, strung around a hawthorn tree on a full moon and only ridden every second Michaelmas. Or something like that. Your local cycling group's self-appointed maintenance guru will have their own take (you know, *that* guy on every ride – and yes, it's always a guy), and whatever you're doing, it will be wrong. Even if it's an exact copy of what they said to do last week. But I digress.

A quick recap: you need lubrication between the chain's rollers and pins (ie 'inside' the chain) and between the inner and outer plates, where they overlap around the pin. You specifically do not need it on the outside of your chain, or indeed on the cassette/chainring teeth. When your chain contacts a cassette or chainring and sits into the hollow between teeth, the roller stays still relative to the teeth, and the chain's outer plates and their attached pins pivot around the now-stationary inner plate and roller. Hence why it's critical that the gap inside the roller is full of wax, so as the pin rotates, there's as little friction as possible.

How to get lubricant into that gap, keep it clean, and replenish it with as little faff as possible is the holy grail of chain maintenance. This matters, because an unlubricated chain costs you a lot of money, watts and sanity in the form of noise. Exactly how many pounds, watts or braincells is variable, but it's safe to say that you should care.

For many people the answer is to slather on a cheap oil-based lube off the counter of a bike shop before every ride, and maybe every few months use a degreaser and chain cleaner tool to make the chain look shiny again, before adding yet more lube. The issue with this method, even done very diligently, is that there will still be gunge in between the pins and rollers. The alternative, if using a waxed chain, is to completely strip it back, melt off the wax, degrease it again, then reapply.

All of the above sets the stage for Silca's Super Secret Lube, because Silca has pretty much cracked the problem of getting a chain super-slick and keeping it that way with an acceptable level of cost and faff.

At the heart of Silca's formula for super-slickness and ease of application are 'nano-scale Tungsten Disulfide NanoPlatelets'. Basically, the slipperiest stuff known to mankind. More or less. These are suspended in a solution of air-drying liquid wax with alcohol as a carrier.

Clean first

The application process is reasonably straightforward. First, start with a clean chain. Silca means seriously clean. There's a video on the Silca website about how to get your chain clean enough, and it involves removing it, putting it in a bottle of high-strength degreaser, and really going to town with the shaking. Probably two or three times, depending on how bad your chain is. Or, better, starting with a new chain so all you have to remove is the factory grease. I own Silca's recommended ultrasonic cleaner, which, combined with heating to 65°C, really does the trick but isn't obligatory.

Once the chain is fastidiously clean and dry, the process of application is simple and effective: apply a drop per roller, along the top of the bottom half of the chain, between the bottom of the chainring and the derailleur pulley. Once dripped, then run two fingers gently along the top and bottom of the links, to 'massage' the lube into the roller-pin gap. At first the lube will be filling the gaps between the two rollers in each link, where the teeth go - but after a few passes it starts to work inside the rollers. If done with care then no drips are evident, but be prepared – this is very slippery stuff, and will slide straight off a clean chain – a good sign you've got one, but means taking care applying, and not over mother's best parquet flooring or oriental rugs if you don't mind.

Silca says to dribble the lube onto the chain while pedalling backwards – but 'no more than two drops per roller' – before using your fingers. In practice this is simply not possible – the stuff is so slippery it goes everywhere, and applying it while pedalling means little flecks of it everywhere. The drip-drip-drip method might take a bit longer but is much more effective and tidy.

Proceed around the chain until back at the start (either start at your split link, or mark the chain outer plate in some way). Once done, Silca recommends running the chain for at least three to four revolutions at both extremities of chain angle – as in, smallest sprocket and chainring, then largest sprocket and chainring. This is to get the plates actuating side to side, to really work the still-wet wax solution right into every part of the roller and links. Then leave to bake/evaporate for 30-40 minutes.

Any splatters will dry to a clear waxy spot in about 15 minutes, and can be wiped off hard surfaces easily enough. If you want to, now's the time to remove any overspill from chainrings, chainstays or pulleys for a super-clean look.


Now, there's no getting away from the fact that this is one of the most expensive lubes on the planet – £32 for 120ml is a lot of cash. Applying a drop per link to a 116-link chain is about 4g of lube – the 4oz bottle is good for about 25 applications. That's £1.28 a shot, which will be more than enough to send some readers apoplectic with e-rage, but please, bear with me.

Once riding, something magical happens – your drivetrain is pretty much completely silent. No matter what gear or RPM, the noise from your chain is likely going to be imperceptible above wind or more likely tyre noise. Everything certainly feels much smoother – pedalling and shifting alike. This was particularly noticeable on my turbo bike, for which I completely stripped, ultrasonic-cleaned and reinstalled the drivetrain for the review. Indoors with only the hum of a slick turbo tyre on a fluid resistance unit, the drop in volume of the drivetrain was very significant.

And so to the first real-world learning of the Super Secret Chain Lube: it flakes. Tiny, grey-black flakes. I placed a sheet of A4 paper under my indoor turbo bike, and over about 100km of pedalling a visible smattering of flakes drifted down to the floor. Being wax, the few that landed elsewhere did need careful cleaning off the wood, and a light-coloured carpet or surface might not do very well here – but then I can't imagine oil splatters being non-marking either.

Silca and every other wax aficionado will admit that over time the wax does push out of the chain and flake away, and the main telltale that this has happened is an increase in audible volume while pedalling. This doesn't really happen with oil-based lubricants unless there's a lot of water involved and it's quite thin stuff. The problem with oil lubes is they simply collect dirt – aka Very Small Rocks – and then create a grinding paste inside your chain. This paste is certainly quiet – but in a very bad way. The regime of simply dribbling more oil over the top existing means you're not 'lubricating' as such, more like adding to the grinding paste for another few hundred miles.

A 40km loop involving a fair bit of standing water and mud ended with no appreciable increase in volume or loss of efficiency – a simple wipe down with a cloth had the chain looking pretty clean to the casual observer. Bearing in mind at this point I'd deep-cleaned the drivetrain 300 gritty, muddy, cow-poo'd km ago, the fact that a single wipe with a cloth got it looking so good is, frankly, phenomenal.

One thing to bear in mind is that once you're out there riding, the chain lube will degrade over time. Adding more lube over the top – even an awesome wax drip like Silca's – will not be the same as a truly-properly-waxed process. But the trade-off is that drip application is something you can do in your garden shed, hotel room or pretty much anywhere 30 minutes before a ride, and get the silence and pretty close to the feel of a proper wax job, with only a fraction of the hassle and none of the infrastructure (pot, stove, etc).

I found my turbo bike chain was good for about 150km before it started to get noticeably louder. Outdoors and on mostly dry gravel roads results were fairly predictable – one 80km stretch of mostly gravel saw the beginnings of a squeak, after a reapplication and another ride of 50km, the follow-up ride of 40km saw the chain positively shrieking near the end. So for my drivetrain (Shimano GRX 1x11) and where/how I ride (gravelly Scotland, not as wet as you'd think) it seems 75km is the sweet spot for reapplication. Or about 1,800km/1,100 miles for a full £32 bottle.

Is that a good deal? Depends how much you love your drivetrain. Chains are cheap, cassettes and chainrings not so much.

Testing down under…

Australia's Zero Friction Cycling, aka ZFC, is a chain-friction freak's candystore of preparations, guidance and science, and is running what appears to be the world's only drivetrain longevity study. Its lubricant tests make for embarrassing reading for some rather pricey industry-leading brands, and I'm sure over time the site will become something of a bible for all things drivetrain-related. Its initial test of Silca Super Secret Lube for initial chain penetration was very positive – better than any other drip lube on the market. The chain wear-per-lube testing continues, including with the 'immersion' pot of lube Silca sells, allowing you to dunk your entire chain in a pot instead of dripping the lube on and massaging in.

Clearly as a drip lube, Silca Super Secret in a bottle is never going to beat a proper immersion process, but as ever this is about the right compromises at the right times. How will an immersion Silca treatment fare against actual wax? Time will tell, and the important factor in reference to what Silca Super Secret Lube costs is: will spending £32 over 1,100 miles equate to longer drivetrain life, thereby paying for itself?

Based on its testing, ZFC estimates that drip lubes will only allow a chain to last a few thousand km before needing replacing. A notable exception is Tru-Tension's All Weather Lube – a tungsten disulfide wax drip lube that met with approval from Shaun. Looks like the Tru-Tension products and Silca share a lot of similar thinking, and aren't too dissimilar in price either.

One benefit of a true wax solution is cleanliness – and after 300km of mostly off-road use, the chain and cassette were very clean indeed. Running the chain through a full ultrasonic cleaning at 65°C then filtering the water through a white kitchen towel, there was almost nothing visible – the wax is soluble and flowed away, and critically there was no evidence of the retained grit that turns any oil-based lube into a jet-black soup. This cleanliness could be a major reason to consider Silca's lube – if you're often getting your bike in/out of a car, or a bike box, or up/down stairs, risking marking clothing or interior surfaces. I'm not saying a brush against a Silca'd chain in a wedding dress would go unmarked, but it'll be a lot less bad than an oil lube.

As a tungsten disulfide wax-based drip lube, Silca's offering pretty much stands alone in the market. Tru-Tension All Weather Lube is probably the closest competitor, and seems to deliver similar results – although more lab time is needed with both. Critically, ZFC has recently assessed the 'Initial Penetration Test' results for Super Secret Lube as being very, very close to the performance of a dip into a wax bath – considered the gold standard of application and reduced wear. Basically, over a 1,000km test rig run Super Secret Lube showed a fifth of the wear of the Tru-Tension lube – all down to how easily it slips between the rollers, pins and plate on the first application.

So is £1.50 per 100km acceptable for an easily maintained, super-quiet, slick and clean drivetrain? If you value these things and can appreciate the nuances/benefits, Silca's Super Secret Chain Lube could be for you.

Size tested: 4oz

Tell us what the product is for and who it's aimed at. What do the manufacturers say about it? How does that compare to your own feelings about it?

It's for people cycling indoors or out, who want a super-quiet and slick wax-based lube.

Silca says:

What is it?

SILCA Super Secret Chain Lube brings all of the super speed and silent running of a hot-melt wax-dipped chain to a drip applied wax (all of the benefits, none of the hassle!). Secret Chain lube also utilizes the world's fastest, most lubricious additive, nano-scale Tungsten Di-Sulfide. NanoPlatelet WS2 has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient of friction of PTFE and 1/4 that of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2)

Who's it for?

The cyclist looking to maximize performance through friction reduction, or the cyclist who loves a silent running bicycle.

Tell us some more about the technical aspects of the product?


SILCA Super Secret Chain lube started out as a project to develop the fastest Hot-Melt wax lubricant available more than a year ago. Josh has been recommending Hot Melt Wax and helping Pro cyclists and triathletes wax chains for years and wanted to bring his lubricant formula to our customers, the challenge was how to consistently melt, dip and agitate the chain across different crockpot designs and temperatures. The project took a fascinating turn from the world of IndyCar when josh was introduced to a group that had developed a technology to put micro-scale wax powders into a solution that was quick drying and forms a coating that is indiscernible from hot melt dipping. The combination of air-drying liquid wax and Tungsten Disulfide would quickly prove to beat all currently available hot melt waxes in friction testing while being much faster and easier to apply.


Best of all perhaps is that this formula would prove to be very environmentally friendly, utilizing 4 different types of wax, nano platelets of WS2 (Tungsten Disulfide), and mild alcohol to act as a carrier. This same alcohol is used in the SILCA Gear Wipes, making them a perfect product to clean and remove Secret Chain Lube.

Well the Science is in - it's the best drip lube in the world, second only to a full wax, and for everyone saying it's expensive - read up. It will save you money. Even riding in wet weather.

No discourse will be entered into, unless you also happen to run an independent chain lube and wear testing facility, and can prove otherwise.

"As covered (THOROUGHLY) in main overview, despite the high cost of a bottle of Silca SS, when factoring in its low usage rate and extremely low component wear rate – especially in dry conditions – Silca SS is currently the LEADER IN CHEAPEST COST TO RUN PER 10,000km of any drip lube tested. I have another high end drip lube test to update after this one, and that will be nowhere close. The only lubricant ahead of Silca SS re cost to run at this time and still the leader is Mspeedwax but that is not a drip lube.
Again versus another commonly used and well regarded lubricant such as Rock N Gold which is only $15 a bottle, due to its much higher usage rate and component wear rate, RNR gold comes in nearly double the cost to run overall per 10,000km.
Lets all help our fellow cyclists around the globe and online magazine reviewers think little deeper than the “wow look at cost of that lube to maybe save a watt or two” mentality – there’s a pretty darn important one little extra level of thinking to take into account – help them do so. Nicely."

So do you disagree with the assessment of the review here that a bottle will last only 1000km? because a bottle of this stuff costs more than a chain, and if I were to replace my chain every 1000km, it would be so close to new as to cause close to zero damage to the cassette. And I would also significantly increase the proportion of time spent with the manufacturers original wax lube on the chain.

KiwiMike replied to wycombewheeler | 3 years ago

Yes I disagree, because no-one says that. I say in Scottish conditions, off-road, a bottle should be good for 1,100 *miles* based on my limited experience. That's about the worst-case I can imagine. Your proposition that you could replace chains for £32 ignores the fact that over the life of that chain using a normal lube (using which you'll need to degrease yur chain and reapply far more often) you will be putting in 5W-15W or more constantly towards eating your drivetrain - £75 cassettes / £150 chainrings etc. If you use SS lube, you won't be doing that *and* the chain will last a lot longer. Page 34 of the report lays all ths out. Also not everyone is technically savvy enough to do their own drivetrain maint - so there's ~£30 of shop time (and being without your bike for weeks) for a chain/cassette swap as well.

...unless you've got Science to argue against the ZFC findings?

...also the mfr coating is not a lube, and certanly isn't wax. It's a heavy protective grease coating.

The old saying 'A fool and his money is easily parted' has never  been more true.

At least it makes me laugh very loudly that someone would spens all that money on a little bottle of oil.

Jesus - theres one born every minute.  I'm obviously in the wrong business.

Did someone mention snake oil? 

So funny.

KiwiMike replied to yupiteru | 3 years ago

You know it's really not polite to call people fools for looking at a product, assessing their needs vs. what it can deliver, and deciding to make a purchase. I'm guessing if you were king Champagne wouldn't exist, because on the face of it buckfast gets you drunk at a fraction the price? why would you pay more?

Also, it's quite clearly not 'oil'. I'm assuming you didn't read the review then? 

njblackadder | 3 years ago

Some aspects of cycling kit have become ludicrous and these new 'super duper' lubes are among them. If your assessment is correct at around £32/1100 miles, I find that obscene! A Campagnolo Record 11 Speed Chain can be had for £35 - £40. In my experience these can be expected to last 4,000 miles minimum, using them in all conditions and applying any old cycle chain specific lube. In this time I would have spent around £100 on the Silca Lube!!!! I could have purchased 2 replacement Chains with accompanying 'decent' lubricant in the same period. This stuff doesn't seem to make a lot of sense. Now, I appreciate that wear is not the only consideration, but it doesn't take much thinking about that it is a hell of a price to pay to gain a watt or two. The most ridiculous thing, however, is that even on a moderate length ride it seems that the user is expected to carry a bottle in order to relubricate the chain!! And it gets 8 out of 10!!! Amazing. Please tell me I am missing something here.

Even Mike offers more 'cons' than 'pros' for this, so I'm with you: 8/10 is verging on Cycling Weekly levels of overblown review scoring! 

I've no doubt it performs incredibly, but I'm not sure it's a viable product for real world riding at 75km an application. FWIW, I use Squirt which seems very similar in its wax-based approach but is way cheaper and properly good for at least 400km in mixed conditions although I've done double that before noticing noise once or twice too.

Chris Boardman was asked about posh chain lube when commentating on the Worlds and to paraphrase, said it was all bollocks: Chains are apparently so efficient anyway, that any improvement is so minimal as to count for nothing.

I hope chris boardman didn't say that, because if he did his understanding of chains and their lubricant is up there with what our understand of aerodynamics was when cyclists went drillium on their hour record bikes. There has been plenty of independant data and testing showing just how huge the difference in friction and wear rates is between the top lube choices vs the average or poor. It surprises me that comments such as the above still come up. A chain with know poor lubricant can quickly become a 20w loss chain at 250w load vs top lubricants which whill be in the 4 to 5w loss range. You can nearly double that gap every extra 250w load. That is hardly bollocks re huge efficiency savings simply by making correct lubricant and chain maintenance decisions. It might have been fine for CB as someone else was taking care of ensuring he always rode on low friction chains?

Having just finished control test of the silca super secret drip lube ( will hopefully have the full detail review up soon) i can confirm that it did struggle a bit in wet conditions so one would need to re-apply frequently if you are an intrepid rider , however it is the first wax emulsion lube tested that doesn't have significant initial penetration issues (which squirt has but you wouldn't notice unless accurately tracking), and its wear rate through the first 3000km of test including dry contamination block were exceptionally low, in fact setting new record low for wear rate of any drip lube tested thus far. 

This, combined with the low amount needed per application also has this lubricant placed as the lowest cost to run drip lube thus far tested despite cost of the lubricant when factoring in the full picture which is lubricant usage cost and drive train parts wear. Its a bit of a false economy if you pay less for a lubricant that wears through your components much faster, which many do. 


If you are happy with what you are using then stick with it, but much more facts and knowledge is out there from independent testing at zero friction cycling vs troves of misleading comments on forums etc that simply lead people to use products that wear out their drive train many times faster than the top known lubricants. 



njblackadder replied to ZeroFrictionCycling | 3 years ago

Hello ZFC. Thanks for the information. I am interpreting some of your comments as the tester making an error somewhere with his £32/1100 miles figure- hopefully I have that correct? Otherwise my point about the costs still seems to stand up. The apparent requirement to actually reapply lubricant during even a moderate length ride is also somewhat of a downside. I will look forward to reading your report. Could I just comment (while understanding that the figures are to illustrate a point), that what happens at 500W is hardly relevant to the vast majority of cyclists (including racing cyclists). Most will struggle to attain the 250W for an extended time.

Going off at a slight tangent; part of the reason for my original comments is because I am tired of being taken for a mug by cycling component and accessory manufacturers. There is no justification for the prices being asked for some products. In certain areas it has become like the cosmetics and perfume industries - the retail costs are simply to place a product in a particular place in the market and bear no relation to the actual cost of manufacture and supply. Anyhow, that's not your fault!!! Thanks again.

KiwiMike replied to njblackadder | 3 years ago

£32/1100 miles, I find that obscene!

I spend approx. £5 per 20 miles ridden on artisanal coffee & Cake (mid-ride) or beer (post-ride). That's £275/1100 miles. I could of course just carry malt loaf, and drink water, but life's for living. Your obscene is another man's delight at a silent, clean, efficient drivetrain. whatever floats your boat.

Zero Friction Cycling have tested the Campy 11spd and peg it at about 2k miles to worn using White Lighning Epic Ride as the control lube (it's a known awful lube, so they can get relative wear stats quickly - with a good lube it should last longer, as Rock'n'Roll Gold shows about twice the life. Tru-Tension Tungsten is about 3x as good at extending life as WL).

The Tru-Tension Tungsten All-Weather is the closest comparator to the Silca Secret lube, which is in testing but as noted above, already beat the pants off the TT lube in the first block of testing with an initial penetration 1k test showing it to be ***five times better***. Does this mean the Long-term chain life of Silca Secret will be closer to that of Molten Speedwax, at 15,000km, or Tru-Tension's 6,000km? 

Either way, the research-backed signs are that the Silca Secret lube, applied  as needed, will significantly extend chain life and will be quiet, efficient and clean whilst doing so. 

Silca's CEO is the first to admit this is a high-end product, and he doesn't use it on his commuter bike where he really doesn't care about drivetrain cost, cleanliness or efficeny or noise. Just accept that some things are not for every man, for every use case. Choice is good. 

njblackadder replied to KiwiMike | 3 years ago

Hello Mike. Thank you for the reply. Of course, you are absolutely correct in each of your points and they are well made. I do find your final paragraph a little odd though - why would he not care about these things, especially if the stuff is so good and its full life costs are so cheap (even cheaper for him as it wouldn't cost him a bean!!)?!! A rhetorical question - no need to answer. Happy cycling.

Chris Hayes | 3 years ago

I've been using this for about 6 weeks now and am delighted with it.  I dipped the whole chain into the wax, wiped off the excess, and let it drip dry overnight.  Since applying it my drive-chain has remained clean (a massive plus) and silent (tick) and will hopefully last a bit longer (though this is less of a concern).  

I'm a convert and won't go back to oil - though I might try molten wax when this runs out. I'm not sure how it will perform in pouring rain, but I'm about to find out.....

I'm happy to have cheered you up.  I'm happier still that my drive chain is still clean...and silent...even after two days riding in pouring rain, after which I'd normally have to spend 30 mins plus scraping the caked grit from my drive chain.  I'd happily pay £32 to avoid having to do this for a couple of months - so I did.
