Cycling Weekly Verdict

A chain lube with very genuine sustainability credentials, Green Oil's Wet Lube is as effective as it is environmentally clean. There are other options out there that last longer, but they are twice as expensive, and this Wet Lube stood up to the tests we threw at it.

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Durable in all weathers

  • +

    For a wet lube, it doesn't attract a lot of dirt

  • +

    Biodegradable lube in a recycled bottle

  • +

    Refills available from some bike shops

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Some more expensive options last even longer

Green Oil has a made a name for itself with its sustainable range of lubricants and cleaning products. It's come a long way since the first sample batch was sold in bottles bought from eBay and filled from an old beer tap in 2007.

These days Green Oil produces Dry Chain Wax and Eco Spray Lube, as well as Green Oil Wet Chain Lube. It's the Wet Lube I've been testing over the winter.
