We are now offering an exclusive personal service where you can purchase a Shimano, Campagnolo or SRAM chain, hand treated with a unique Speed Film Lubrication; Nanotube Chain Optimisation.

Our Nanotube Speed Film is an all-weather treatment, so riding in wet or muddy conditions is no problem. The groundbreaking formula contains Nanotube additives to make it incredibly fast, but still retains the proven all-weather repellency of Muc-Off’s Hydrodynamic Lube. Unlike other speed optimized chains where a dry wax is used lasting 200 miles or less, the Muc-Off Nanotube Chain Optimisation will benefit you for 400+ miles in dry conditions and 250+ miles in wet and muddy conditions with no severe performance drop off (as happens with dry waxes after a far shorter period).

With power savings of over 10 watts*, Nanotube Speed Film treated chains are delivered to you at their optimum performance level.

Each chain is painstakingly speed graded and run-in under load during which data is taken to find its optimum. Next it’s sonic cleaned in several formulas and hand treated with the Nanotube formula, then nanotube particles are applied. It’s now finally ready for track, triathlon, road or MTB competition straight out of the box. This is perfect for you if you have a major race or event coming up.

A top up bottle of the Nanotube Optimised Chain Lube is also available, allowing the re-treatment of the chain for many more miles of ultimate speed! It won't be as fast as the original treatment as we use a special technique to ensure the formula is driven deep into each link for 100% coverage, but you can still achieve significant savings within 1-2 watts of your chain’s original optimum.

As these chains are hand treated, please allow a 2-3 week lead time.

  • Chain length: 116 links

This Speed Film lubrication was developed specifically for Sir Bradley Wiggins’ Hour Record and uses the world’s most advanced additives to give you unrivalled friction reducing technology. It was also used by Bridie O’Donnell in her hour record.

The equipment used to prove that the Muc-Off program can save real-world rider watts, is called The Chain Lube Optimization Dynamometer – C.L.O.D. Designed and built in-house by Muc-Off, the device can test any lubricant and chain combination to provide detailed quantitative data on efficiency and durability.

This new, state of the art formula and treatment process pushes the boundaries of chain lube innovation and is designed specifically to keep friction to an absolute bare minimum.

Pre-install

Please ensure your entire drivetrain is thoroughly degreased prior to use. If you can sonic clean your chain rings and rear cassette then please do so (using our drivetrain cleaner formula) to ensure the smoothest and fastest possible interface between your new chain and drive surface. If you don't have access to a sonic cleaner, then please follow our step-by-step videos and guides to drive chain cleaning on our website.

We recommend wearing workshop gloves for the install. The Nanotube film is black by nature and almost looks dirty, but this is just the Nanotube powder/synthetic lubricant mix. So don't worry, it may not look fast, but believe us it is!

Ensure your working environment is also clean in case you drop the chain during install. We recommend using our Bike Mat under your work stand, so if you do drop it, you won't pick up any grit or grime. Start by reducing your chain to the desired length. Now fit as per the manufacturer’s instructions.

Pre-race

The chain needs to be run in under load to reach its optimum. Using 250+ watts, this will take approximately 4 hours. Once this is done it will remain at its optimum in all conditions until it’s ready for cleaning and retreatment.

If you are using your chain in dusty conditions you may wish to wipe the chain to minimise dust pick up, but this will reduce the durability of the treatment.

Duration

Your chain will run in dry conditions for approximately 400+ miles and in wet for approximately 250+ miles. Log each ride so you know when you will need to re-treat it.

Cleaning in-between treatments:

You can clean your bike and wash the chain lightly with water in between stages/races without the need to degrease or re-lube the chain if your total mileage is below the recommended durations above. You may wish to remove the chain and then thoroughly clean the rest of the drivetrain if needed.

Re-treatment:

When you are ready to clean your chain, bring it back to within 1-2 watts of its optimum by applying the top up Nanotube Chain Lube. This means you can thoroughly clean and re-treat your chain for many more hundreds of miles of ultimate speed. It won't be as fast as when it was first treated, as we use a special technique and processes to ensure the formula is driven deep into each link for 100% coverage, but you can still achieve significant savings. Don’t worry, it will still be one of the fastest chains on the planet for many more 1000’s of miles!
