Directions - 6 simple steps to a Smoove ride.

Step 1 > Apply SMOOVE to a clean dry chain.

Step 2 > Apply on the inside of the chain while turning the pedals to ensure that the lube gets worked into the chain.

Step 3 > Let the lube dry for at least an hour.

Step 4 > Best results are achieved if lube is applied the night before.

Step 5 Do not wipe chain after application.

Step 6 > Too much lube will cause residue to accumulate around the derailleur pulley wheels and cassette.

How do I apply Smoove?

It works best to apply the lube on the inside of the chain in the middle of the rollers. Squeeze the bottle gently to release a constant flow of lube on the chain and keep on going until a small web or bubble forms between the rollers on the narrow link. Work the Lube into the chain by back pedaling about 20 rotations. Leave overnight to dry.

What is the best way to clean my chain when I use Smoove?

It is best to use a citrus based degreaser when cleaning your chain. If you use a normal degreaser make sure to use hot water to help soften the lube so that the surfactant in the soap can break down the lube. For best results use SMOOVE™ PREP Chain and drivetrain cleaner.

Just follow these easy steps:

Using SMOOVE™ PREP with a chain cleaning device

(Click here to watch the video)

Fill the device with approximately 25ml of SMOOVE™ PREP in order to reach the bottom of the brush wheels. The amount of one application is indicated on the side of the bottle. Most chain devices have a ‘fill to’ line, however, we suggest that you ignore this as one application ofSMOOVE™ PREP will be sufficient. Now clip the chain cleaner around the chain as per the manufacturer recommendations. Back pedal until the visible SMOOVE™ chain lube is dissolved and make sure that you tilt the chain device slightly so that the brush rollers can collect the remaining cleaning solution. After removing the chain cleaner, use the remaining amount of SMOOVE™ PREP with a suitable brush to clean the cassette and chain rings.

Rinse the chain and drivetrain with sufficient clean water using a hose.

Directions for manual cleaning.

Pour 25ml of SMOOVE™ PREP in a small bowl. Dip a suitable brush in the solution and scrub the chain and drivetrain components until all visible SMOOVE™ chain lube has been dissolved.

Rinse the chain and drivetrain with sufficient clean water using a hose.

What do I use to clean the sticky protective film on a new chain?

For best results use SMOOVE™ PREP Chain and drivetrain cleaner. If you don’t have SMOOVE™ PREP available then kerosene, paraffin or any type of chain degreaser should work. Make sure to use a soap as a final cleaning step to get rid of the oily film that the hydrocarbon solvent leaves behind.

How much Smoove should I apply?

Smoove works best if you apply a heavy application less often. Refer to the correct application video.

How often should I apply Smoove?

The best results is achieved with Smoove when you only apply it when the chain start sounding dry or when you scrub and degrease the chain. When the bike gets a normal wash to remove dust it is normally not necessary to reapply Smoove.

My cassette and derailleur pulley wheels are gunking up, how can I reduce this?

This is normally a tell-tale sign that you are applying lube too often, try applying more lube less often.

Will Smoove work in wet conditions?

Smoove was engineered to work in 90% of all conditions and it’s the only true universal chain lube on the market.

Is it fine to apply Smoove just before the ride?

Smoove works best if you give it proper time to dry before the ride. We advise that you apply it the night before.

Will smoove work on my road bike?

Smoove works unbelievably well on road bikes, simply apply as per the instructions.

Will Smoove help protect my drivetrain?

We have consistently measured improved drivetrain wear when using SMOOVE, however it will greatly depend on what type of riding you do and what conditions you mostly ride in.

Why should I lube my chain?

The forces inside a roller chain cause the metal surfaces to wear and creates friction that leads to power loss. Lubing your chain with Smoove will drastically reduce this.

The nozzle is clogging up, how do I prevent that from happening?

It is very important to always screw the cap back on preventing the lube inside the nozzle from drying out and forming a plug. It also helps to make sure that the nozzle doesn’t touch the chain to prevent pieces of debris getting stuck in the tip.

Can Smoove be used for anything else?

Smoove was specifically engineered for bicycle chains but it works very well to lube your gear cables and housings.
