What is it?
The Ultimate Oil Based Lube SILCA's new oil-based lubricant is based on technology originally developed in F1 racing, to reduce friction and nearly eliminate wear in all metal components.
Who's it for?
This lube is for the demanding cyclist who wants to experience the lower friction, increased lifespan, and silence of the most advanced lubrication technologies without the extra work involved with deep cleaning, drying and waxing their chain.
WHY WE DESIGNED IT:
Electron microscopy of this phenomenon was first reported by Paula Ussa Aldana at the University of Lyon in France a few years back. She was able to section the test samples to expose the tribofilm, showing exactly how the WS2 nanoplatelets are being held in the tribofilm of ZDDP.
Tribofilm formed in the wear groove of a test pin.
In SILCA testing, the use of a significantly more advanced base oil than used in the University of Lyon testing has shown further improvements in both wear and friction, while careful balancing of the formulation has allowed us to mass produce the resulting oil at an attainable price despite the exotic cost of some of the ingredients.
SILCA Synergetic oil has been tested internally to be the fastest and quietest oil-based lubricant ever tested, losing only 4.9 watts on 250 input (98.1% efficiency), however, it really begins to shine when focusing on longevity and durability of the chain and mating components. Best of all, because the lubricant forms a durable tribofilm at the metal surface, and is strongly attracted to itself, the lube proves to be exceptionally waterproof, remaining inside the chain even in testing under full water submersion, the lubricant is not displaced!
