Chris Froome’s Muc-Off Nanotube Chain now available to buy

Claimed 10 watts saving over CeramicSpeed’s top chain

The new chain, launched today, boasts lubrication with graphene nanotubes, which Muc-Off says are state of the art. It was used by Team Sky and Chris Froome on his way to his 2017 Tour and Vuelta victories.

Muc-Off first sonic cleans a standard Shimano Dura-Ace chain before the proprietary lubricant is applied. It says that its formulation penetrates each link to provide a smooth and highly durable friction reducing coating.
