Strengths: Stays surprisingly clean, excellent lubrication, non-toxic, clear, it can be used for lots of other things.
Weaknesses: Straw on the aerosol can keeps falling off.
I have tried several other lubes, tri-flow, finishline wet, wet ceramic, epic ride, cleanride and a few more... this one is where the cats meow.
Just make sure your chain before switching to this lube. Spray a little to each link, rotate the pedals to it can work itself in. Let it sit for a minute or two, and wipe off excess.
Won't be as clean as wax lubes but it lasts longer and stays much cleaner than other wet lubes.
I did some testing using 1/2" bolts in my freezer and compared this to Mobil1 Syn grease, Pedro's Syn, Finish Line, and a couple i can't remember. Super Lube turned the easiest when cold. It has done well for me year-round in Campy non-sealed hubs and BB's as well as more modern gear.

Strengths: *Very dry if applied correctly,it produces a thin layer that doesnt attract dust and dirt and makes the chain go silent,smooth and for a long time. *It is very sheap,huge bottle for under 9 bucks! I have used the same bottle for over a year and there is still much lube left in the bottle!
*Anti-rust function.The coating repells water and dirt and makes your chain as new for longer time,it doesnt matter if your riding in muddy,wet conditions ,ore dry dusty conditions!
Very easy to apply .
Weaknesses: BEcorse it is in liquid form in the bottle,you will spray ore waste 50-75% of the lube,a secret is to clean the chain ,and let it dry complete! Then put some on,but not to much,and wipe of. Let it dry in. Repeat 1-2 times before mounting the chain. After every rainy ride,no matter what:clean and dry,and relube the same way;and you will have no problem !!!!
If you use this lube correctly,it will be the most usefull lube you ever find!
It is cheap,it doesnt attract dust and dirt,it works great in both wet/Dry and cold/warm weather(!!!),it works for both chain and other moving parts!
It makes your gear tick like clockwork, and your chain will run smoothly and very silent.
It repells water and doesn't come off when the chain is subjected with water(rain)and have a anti-rust function. The teflonbased lube is 100% biological and is not a hasard to the enviroment, is doesnt cahnge the color on any material on your bike,plastic,metal,is doesn't discolor ore harm any material!!!
The teflon-coating,finally , makes the chain go smother than with any other lube/oil I have tested and last longer than any other I have tested!
Those that uses this teflonbased LUBE,will not be dissapointed!
But,dont forget that you must buy a new chain when it is starting to wear out .
And check that nothing else is wrong on the bike,before you start blaming on the lube/oil !!!
No lube in the world holds forever,no lube in the world can help if you apply it wrong,ore have old worn out chain,sprockets and/ore chainwheals,and of course,bad gears!!!!!!!!!!!
Be carefull before you say anything is wrong with the lube,its easy to be negative,and often is is not so bad as many says !
If you dont believe me,look at the averidge rating on this lube,its among the best!!!!
Superlube is the number one UNIVERSAL LUBE-no joke!
SUPERLUBE ROCKS,REPLACE ALL YOUR OTHER LUBES WITH THIS LUBE,THE ONLY LUBE YOU WILL EVER NEED!!!
SuperLube is the Lube you been looking for! Do you think I´m kidding,humpf;your'e insulting me, why do you think I have wasted one hour on writing if the lube was bad ? ............ SUPERLUBE ROCKS!
...........********the number one: superLube!!*******......

Strengths: Synthetic Lubricant with Teflon. I have used it on everything from locks to hinges and my old Schwin Prelude 10 speed. Before the internet, I cleaned the dirt off using an engine degreaser and spray water. I then sprayed the Super Lube to the dried surface. This was before MTbRiew and the method was effective at keeping the dirt off and maintaining bike. Super Lube was not a dirt magnet.
Weaknesses: I cannot remember any. This was before I paid much attention to Chain Lubes.
This stuff works - It always worked for me in my unsophisticated pre MtbReview days, many miles and moons ago.
Purchased At: Cannot Remember - it's been a long time.

Strengths: Slick, pretty dry, excellent penetrant, quiet, superb water resistence and anti rust properties
Weaknesses: gets sticky after repeated applications.
excellent stuff for the money. Trick is to apply SPARINGLY on a clean chain. Wipe away all excess on surface of chain and do not spray directly on the cassette. The idea is to get the stuff in the chain links and nowhere else. Stuff will coat itself over drivetrain as you ride. After each ride, wipe away any excess that has oozed out and reapply IF necessary

Strengths: Cheap, clear, nontoxic, doesn't attract much dirt, easy to clean, waterproof, protects against corrosion. Good for wet as well as dry conditions. I even use it on my road bike chains.
Weaknesses: Not as clean as some other lubes (Krytech, wax, White Lightning...), but it lasts way longer and doesn't wash off as readily.
I keep coming back to this stuff after trying a lot of other lubes. The chain cleans off pretty easy with Simple Green and scrubbing with a brush. Protects well against rust (I dry the chain with a rag after cleaning and rinsing in water, and respray with lube). It's also available in a pen oiler (in addition to a spray can). It sets up as a clear, thin grease after the solvent evaporates.
