Cycling Weekly Verdict

Muc-Off's extensive range offers a huge amount of choice, to suit every need and budget. The 'basic' Wet Lube might not carry some of the cachet of more advanced formulas, but we found it to be long lasting, easy to apply - and all at an affordable price.

Whatever type of chain lube you prefer, Muc-Off has something to offer. At the top-end there's Ludicrous AF, which Muc-Off claims to be the world's fastest race lube (at £49.99 for a 50ml bottle, it had better be good). Then there are ceramic lubes with both wet and dry formulations, hydrodynamic lube, e-bike lube, all-weather lube, dry lube, -50˚C lube for severe cold weather – a specialist lube for mild but misty Wednesdays is probably in development.

But if you want to ride in all weathers, with a fuss-free lubricant that doesn't cost silly money, there's Muc-Off Wet Lube. While you'll need deep pockets and a racing licence to justify £1 per millilitre for Muc-Off's finest, the Wet Lube costs £8.99 for a 120ml bottle. It tends to be discounted if you buy directly from Muc-Off, with further reductions if you buy two or three bottles at a time.
