© SMOOVE Universal Chain Lube.
A brilliant, long-lasting lube for all conditions. Smoove’s solution was the most expensive of the bunch in our five lube group test. However, it proved to be exceptionally effective, resulting in seemingly endless miles of quiet transmission.
Long-lasting, clean-running chain lube from South Africa. Smoove lube lasts forever and keeps your chain running smooth. Buy if, you want to worry less about your chain and ride more!
Smoove makes some bold claims about its chain lubricant, and my experience so far is that it really works. When a company claims to make ‘probably the hardest-wearing wax-based chain lube on the market,’ which ‘allows you to ride hundreds of miles between applications,’ I’d expect to see some results. Well, I did. I tried the Smoove Universal Chain Lube, and it’s true.
I’ve been using Smoove on and off road, and its biggest outing has actually been road-based, using just one application to ride the 890 miles between John O’ Groats and Land’s End at the end of December. No problem, and no dirt build-up. Off-road results have also been good, with the coating lasting several muddy rides before coming off.
My shifting has never been smoother, my drivetrain is muted, and the durability is extremely impressive. Add to that the dry, clean running with only a little build-up and it gets on this list.
One of the products found in the hunt for best in class – we have Smoove! From ZFC testing results this product has been brought on board replacing the spot previously held by Squirt.
A great product that is value for money and has worked for me on my MTB and I’m sure will work just as well on a road bike and, will probably last an incredibly long time on a road chain.
Overall, I’m impressed. There aren’t many chain lubes that can do 1,500 kilometres in mixed and mountainous conditions, and keep your drivetrain running silent. Smoove Lube performs, well.
I am happy with Smoove Lube? To say I’m impressed is probably an understatement. I thought it would be hard to review a product that was to all intends and purpose just a chain lube.
A liquid wax-based lube that is thicker than SQUIRT and lasts 350+ miles. My ‘go-to’ lube is SMOOVE, but I need to keep a small nail nearby since the nozzle will be completely clogged prior to the next lube.
But there are events which require a long-lasting lubricant and where chances to re-apply may be few and far between. I spoke to riders that had tested it in South African stage races and they thoroughly recommended it.
