Description

Always a clean chain

Tired of spending forever scrubbing your bike and dealing with degreaser and dirty chains?

Hot Wax is a game-changer. After a long ride, just kick back, take a shower, and let the wax do the heavy lifting. Throw your chain into the wax heater, and it'll clean it up like magic. You get to chill while it does all the work.

Bonus: the heater warms up the wax in just 10 minutes for quick action.

Reduce friction

Watts are precious. Dirt is their biggest enemy. Don't allow your watts to vanish into the depths of a grimy, oiled chain.

With hot wax, your chain attracts no dirt and stays efficient. The slippery coating formed between the rollers reduces friction and makes for the fastest chain lubrication known to the cycling industry.

For Road, Gravel, TT and Mountain bikes

Cyclowax is suited for Road, Gravel, TT and Mountain bikes. Any bike that you want to be in pristine condition all the time. A bike that has to perform and look at it’s best.

The harsher the condition you ride in, the more you benefit from the dirt-repelling dryness of a waxed chain.

FAQ

Is using liquid wax the same as using Cyclowax?

No, it's not the same. Liquid waxes stay sticky and attract dirt, so you end up cleaning your drivetrain more often. Plus, they don't last as long, usually just around 100km or 60miles. But with Cyclowax, every time you re-apply it, it's like giving your chain a deep clean. And unlike liquid wax, it stays clean and goes the distance, holding up for up to 500km/310miles.

Why does hot wax 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.

Why do I need to buy a Starter kit?

The Cyclowax Starter Kit has everything you need to kickstart your chain waxing journey for a hassle-free, clean riding experience. Just buying the items separately won't cut it. Start by ensuring your drivetrain is squeaky clean with the Bike Preparation Kit. Next up, install the Cyclowax pre-waxed chain, completely grease-free, for those initial clean rides. Re-wax every 300-500km or 190-310miles to ensure optimal performance and a long-lasting drivetrain.

Can I use my own chain?

Yes, you can use your own chain, but it’s not advised. 

To make sure you get the best performance and a clean drivetrain, you need to clean the chain in a multiple step process with various chemicals. We do that for you and dispose of any chemicals in the correct way. The 10/11/12-speed Cyclowax chain includes a tool-free quick link which allows you to open your clean chain with your bare hands. To make re-waxing even easier.

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 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. 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.

Can I use Cyclowax on my Gravel and Mountain bike?

For sure. Cyclowax can be used on several different types of bikes especially Road, Gravel, Mountain and TT bikes. The advantages of a clean chain when riding in dirty conditions are just greater.

Can I use Cyclowax on my indoor bike trainer?

Yes, you will have to prepare your indoor bike trainer in the same way you prepared your outdoor bike. Side note, a freshly waxed chain will shed some wax flakes at the start. This is unavoidable, but it beats oil stains on your floor anytime and is easily removed with a vacuum cleaner. You can reduce the effect by using your chain outdoors first, and loosen the chain thoroughly before installing.

Can I touch my chain with my bare hands?

Absolutely! Because your chain and drivetrain don't attract dirt, you can now touch your chain with bare hands. No more chainring tattoos, and say goodbye to dirty hands. Your bike mechanic will thank you too.

What tools do I need to install Cyclowax?

The Cyclowax Clean Chain Starter Kit includes the Cyclowax pre-waxed chain along with all the essential tools to prep your bike and kickstart the waxing process. For the installation, the only additional items required – a chain whip, an Allen key, and a chain cutter – are not included in the kit.

Do I need to install a new cassette and pulley wheels?

No! The Cyclowax Clean Chain Starter Kit is equipped with a Bike Preparation Kit, designed for degreasing your cassette, chainrings, derailleur, and pulley wheels. If it's also time to replace your cassette and pulley wheels, you have the option to install new ones. This way, you only need to degrease your derailleur and front chainring.

    Less friction, more riding!

    Save 8 watts

    Trusted by Olympic Champions, World Champions and Hour-Record holders to set the fastest times. Waxed chains reduce friction, so you can save up to 8 watts compared to a dirty oiled chain.

    Ride 3x longer

    Unlike oil, wax doesn't create a grinding paste in muddy or rainy conditions; instead, it pushes out dirt. As a result, you can experience up to three times the life of your chain and cassette compared to using oil, saving money on replacements and maintenance.

    Simplify your maintenance

    Save 30 minutes

    Maintaining your chain is now effortless and indoor-friendly. A one minute wax bath is all it takes to replace the time-consuming and messy post-ride cleaning routine of degreasing, scrubbing, pressure-washing, and drying oiled chains. Couldn't be simpler.

    No dirty hands

    Say goodbye to the frustration of dirty hands and clothes while working on your bike. A waxed chain stays clean because it is dry, giving you peace of mind and an always clean drivetrain.

    Just finished my first ride ...

    New chainrings, cassette, pully wheels, and of course a newly waxed chain, and it runs as smooth as silk. Instructions were very clear. I'm waiting to see how well waxing works with British rainy weather (I also ride quite a lot of gravel). In the meantime I'm becoming a little obsessed with my new, clean, silent drivechain!

    Sauber und leise

    Super Sache, alles sehr einfach zu handhaben. Einzig der belgische Stecker geht in der Schweiz nicht (Adapter belgisch auf schweizer Standard).
    Die Kette ist sauber und geräuschlos.
