High performance lube for ALL competitive cycling disciplines and for high-performance bicycles. Use this product on a consistent basis for improved component life and the lowest coefficient of friction. This product is the finest lube on the market. Proven durability beyond any other lubes we've tested. Great for endurance riding and racing, or just keeping your chain in top condition.
Strengths: Great lube when first applied, it makes the entire drivetrain super quiet and silky smooth. Easily cleans up when post-ride cleaning.
Weaknesses: Gunk build up is very substantial. After 2-3 good sized creek crossings, all lube will be gone and your drivetrain will sound like a rusty old chainsaw. If you plan on any long mountain bike rides, carry extra lube because it will get very loud and obnoxious the longer you ride!
The Yelo Velo is a good quality lube but it just doesn't have the longevity I need in a chain lube. I clean and lube my chain after every ride (after the entire bike gets washe) but this lube just doesn't hold up to the 30+ mile rides I often take IF any sort of water crossing is involved. I am sure it would work fine in drier condition and in road bike applications, but for mountain riders who get their bikes wet, look for a different lube.
