Review – Muc-Off C3 Ceramic Lube Dry Chain Lubricant

Muc-Off C3 Ceramic Lube Dry Chain Lubricant
The Muc-Off C3 Ceramic Lube Dry Chain Lubricant is the latest bicycle chain lube released by the UK-based brand Muc-Off—the pioneering experts in bike lubes and cleaners.

I have become a complete convert to using dry chain lubes for road and off-road bicycles—all year round. A dry wax-based lubricant offers lubrication for your bike's chain without the risk of contaminants sticking to the lubricated chain's surface and creating a damaging grinding paste—as is the case with 'wet' oil-based lubricants.

The Ceramic C3 Dry Chain Lube from Muc-Off is an innovative new dry chain lubricant that utilises ceramic nanoparticles and synthetic polymers to create a super durable low-friction coating for your chain.

The key with any dry chain lubricant is the application. It is vital that you strip the chain of all previous dirt, grease, and oil before applying a dry chain lube; if you do not, then the chain lube will simply slide off the oily surface and will not dry onto the chain's rollers and pins—as is required for effective lubrication of the metal-on-metal surfaces.

Following correct application of the Muc-Off C3 Ceramic Lube Dry Chain Lubricant, I found that in hot-and-dry and cold-and-wet conditions, the chain lube would last 200-250 kilometres before needing a re-application. During that time, it would give a silent and smooth drivetrain—suggestive of a low friction and efficient chain. Muc-Off claim that the efficiency saving could be up to ten times that of rival brand's chain lubricants.

A properly lubricated bike chain will save your sanity and your wallet—with your drivetrain components lasting longer and performing more efficiently. The Muc-Off C3 Ceramic Lube Dry Chain Lubricant is a good value and effective bicycle chain lube.
