Why it works

Squirt is biodegradable and contains selected waxes performing different functions in a creamy emulsion. It runs at very low resistance (VeloNews, Hunting for Speed, pdf, Feb 2014): “Fastest drip lube we have ever tested”  When applied to the chain it dries, leaving a microfilm of wax that is dry and water repelling. It does not attract dust or debris and stays clean. Unlike oil-based lubricants, Squirt does not form a black paste that causes long term damage to a drivetrain. It stays clean in all conditions, ideal for road, TRI, gravel, XC, trail, enduro, commuting and cyclo-cross.

FAQ’s

How often should I de-grease the chain when using Squirt Long Lasting Chain Lube?2021-05-11T11:01:31+00:00

De-greasing is not necessary when you’ve been using Squirt Long Lasting Chain Lube. It does not form a black build-up like oils that traps dirt to accelerate chain wear. It does not smudge and stays dry. Brush off with dry brush if needed and remove occasional build-up from rear derailleur wheels with a toothpick.

What is the shelf life of Squirt Long Lasting Chain Lube?2021-05-11T09:39:23+00:00

If stored under recommended conditions, the lube will last for many years. Stability samples of older than 15 years still retain functionality.

I have noticed an amount of small black particles coming off the drive train on my stationary trainer. Why is this happening?2021-05-11T09:33:58+00:00

The small black particles are normal on stationary trainers. This also happens when on the road or trails, one just does not see it.  It is the hard-wax components of Squirt shedding from the chain.  Excess wax and dirt trapped sheds via this method.  You may find that more wax accumulates on the chain of your trainer – this is due the chain not vibrating/shaking enough to promote shedding. Our biodegradability rating is therefore important as it would end up in the natural environment.

My lube is much thicker than when I bought it. What’s wrong with it?2021-05-11T09:33:13+00:00

Squirt should be stored between 40℉ and 95℉ with the cap on. If it freezes (below 32℉, 0℃) or dries out, it becomes thick. It can be restored to a creamy liquid by adding a little water and shaking it up (normally about 10% of water).

How often should I re-lube?2021-05-11T09:31:27+00:00

It depends on riding conditions. In general, when you start hearing a dry chain noise, re-application is already due. In wet, muddy conditions it will not last as long as in dry-dust free conditions. In general, from 30 to 300 miles on one application – the chain will stay clean. If you expect riding in wet conditions, lube your chain the day before if possible.

Do I need to de-grease my chain before start using Squirt Chain Lube for the first time?2021-05-11T09:15:36+00:00

Yes. Squirt should be started on a clean, properly de-greased and dry chain. Factory grease on a new chain should be removed with organic solvent if needed. A second application ten minutes after the first is recommended when starting out with Squirt.
