FAQ

Can I use my Cyclowax chain on other bikes?

Switching the same chain between bikes is not a good idea. The subtle difference between drivetrains influences the wear and tear of the chain drastically. So if you want to use Cyclowax on multiple bikes, use an extra Cyclowax chain per bike. Remove all grease by preparing the drivetrain of your other bike(s) in the same way you prepared your first bike.

Why does your wax only last 300-500km or 190/310miles?

Distinguishing between optimal performance and what's achievable in the best conditions is crucial. While nearly every hot wax available can endure up to 800km/500 miles on well-maintained roads in favorable weather, this doesn't hold true for mountain biking. The reality is quite different. We strongly recommend reapplying the wax after 300km/190 miles because over time, the wax layer thins out, leading to increased chain wear. By waxing every 300km/190 miles, you maximize the lifespan of your chain and drivetrain.

By specifying the 300-500km or 190/310 miles range, we align with the real world experiences of most riders across various surfaces.

Can I use my same heater for multiple chains and bikes?

You can use your Cyclowax waxing tools for all bikes. And you can also track your waxing of your multiple bikes with the Cyclowax app.
Ensure if you use Cyclowax on multiple bikes, that you use a specific Cyclowax chain per bike. The subtle difference between drivetrains can influence the wear and tear of your chain and drivetrain.

Can I touch my chain with my bare hands?

Yes, as your chain and drivetrain does not attract dirt you can touch your chain with your bare hands. No more chainring tattoos, no more dirty hands. Your bike mechanic will be grateful too.

Do I need to clean my chain after my ride?

No, that's the magic of Cyclowax! No need for degreasers or specialized cleaning products. If your chain and bike are dry and haven't hit the 500km/310miles mark, you can simply store your bike, and you're ready for the next ride. If you decide to give your bike a thorough wash, just remove the chain, and all you need is water, a touch of soap, and a sponge to completely clean your bike! After wet rides, it's recommended to reapply Cyclowax to prevent rust, deeply cleanse your chain, and provide a fresh wax layer.
