The Secret Is Out! Upgrade Your Chain And Drive Train With Long-Lasting Hot Melt Wax
When your bicycle is in need of some quick touching up, turn to the SILCA Secret Chain Blend Hot Melt Wax to smoothen your ride. With one simple application, you are sure to expect the super speed and silence of chains that are just like new.
SILCA made sure to utilize the world's fastest, most lubricious additive — nano-scale Tungsten Di-Sulfide. This NanoPlatelet WS2 has less than 1/3 the dynamic coefficient of friction of PTFE and 1/4 that of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2). The best part of the Secret Chain Blend is the submergible pouch. Don't want to dedicate a crockpot to hot-waxing your chain? Simply put the chain in the bag and immerse it in hot water for mess-free results.

I've only put a few 100 miles on this, but so far I'm impressed. Smooth, quiet and clean.
I have also waxed my wifes chain as well.
A little bit of a learning curve, having never hot waxed chains before, but so far so good.
I donï¿½t get chainring grease tattoos any more, but the waxing process requires a little more work. I rotate my chains every couple of weeks (sometimes sooner). You have to get yourself setup with an ultrasonic cleaner, and a way to relax your chain frequently. I use a small crockpot. Once you have the equipment and process dialed, itï¿½s not too bad.
Used this for the 1st time on my road bike after replacing the Cassette and Chain Ring. Started with 2 new SRAM Rival AXS chains and clean them thoroughly as recommended and used a small beauty wax pot. I alternate chains every 150 miles. the shifting is quick, quite, and positive. The drive train feels less resistive. Chain is spotless and stays that way. No grease or stains. I am expecting my drive train to last longer. My previous cassette and chain ring lasted 6000 miles. If you are ready to try hot waxing, I highly recommend this product
I can't say I noticed any particular power savings, but not having to worry about getting oil on myself or my stuff is worth it alone. This wax works well and lasts long enough for me, I usually re-wax every 150miles and only need half the bag to fill up my wax pot.
Worth the cost of admission. First time hot waxing my chain and I donï¿½t see myself going back to regular lube. Chain and drivetrain are running silky smooth, super clean, and very quiet. Lasts about 200 miles for me before needing to reapply. Get yourself 2 chains to rotate through and itï¿½s no hassle at all.
The key to this working great is to ensure you have taken the many steps to strip a brand new chain to the bare metal. Take your time and you will be rewarded. Outstanding smooth and quit and efficient drive train performance.
