Fast Wax has developed a new Hot Melt Fluorinated Chain Wax system that keeps your chain running smooth, clean, and quiet. No more oily messy chains, stained clothing, and greasy fingers. And best of all more peddle power to the road. Once you try this system you will never go back to an oil based chain lube.
The Hot Melt Fluorinated Chain Wax fills the void areas in the chain pivots, preventing dirt and grit getting into the chain pivots; this reduces chain wear and chain drag, increasing power - watts.
Today many races are won and lost by a matter of a few seconds and even tens of seconds, a well-tuned drive train can easily be the difference between victories and losses.
Chain Wax Efficiency
The test is a tempo ride of 18 minutes over rolling terrain using a SRM Power Meter on the front chain ring and a Power Tap Hub on the rear.
Chain Efficiency is the power difference between the 2 power meters
