Introducing the GRAX High-Performance Chain Lube, a revolutionary lubricant formula for gravel and off-road riders.
Long days riding gravel can make it nearly impossible to keep things clean, well-lubricated, and running fast. To counter this the manufacturers partnered with a spin-off from the University of Arkansas Nanotechnology Department to create a high-performance chain lube and cleaner, called GRAX. The results are in. Dirt or pavement, rain or mud, slop or muck, GRAX keep riders rolling faster, longer.
GRAX is short for gravel wax. It is a wax-based lube engineered to shed water, dirt, and mud, and keep chain rollers well lubricated and running smoothly through endless miles of abuse. The manufacturers tested GRAX's efficiency vs. several competitors in standard dry conditions, as well as the nasty stuff.
After countless hours in labs and four full seasons of riding gravel roads and trails around Northwest Arkansas they found GRAX to be the most efficient, and most durable, lubricant on the market.
The manufacturers tested two primary performance properties in GRAX:
1) its ability to repel moisture, and 2) wattage expenditure in both dry and muddy conditions.
GRAX was tested against multiple experimental hydrophobic lubricants as well as the most expensive and high-performing products on the market.
GRAX excels in all categories. It ensures you not only have the most efficient lube available but also sheds water and dirt better than any product. It shaves watts, keeps your drivetrain running smoothly and quietly for more miles in the most extreme conditions, and improves the longevity of your drive train components.
Allied (the manufacturer) strongly recommends using GRAX High-Performance Drive Train Cleaner for optimal grease removal after using GRAX lube.

I've been using SCC lube most of the year, and have been happy with it, but decided to give the Grax a try. Application process is easy--it comes out of the bottle looking like Elmer's Glue, although a little more viscous. Run the chain backwards, and then through all your cogs, let it set for about an hour and you're ready to go. The Grax has held up nicely on my gravel rig during dry, dusty conditions for close to 300 miles. Quiet drivetrain and smooth shifting. It does a good job of shedding dirt, and I just brush the chain and cogs after rides. Grax has likewise held up well on my MTB, including a 30 mile rain soaked mudfest of a race. Highly recommended.
