I use the Lite version on all of my road bikes. Living in Southern CA I normally don't need to worry about wet weather and the Lite is all I need. Before I started using the Dumonde Tech product my go-to was Rock and Roll Gold. I still consider the Rock and Roll product excellent, but I have found the Dumonde product to keep the chain cleaner. I still keep a bottle of the Rock and Roll Gold as a back up.
I prefer the lite for my road bikes chain but this stuff aint cheap I only use it on a clean dry drive train and only enough to
make the chain wet a drop on each link then shift over every sprocket to work it in evenly makes the chain run smooth clean and quiet like a sewing machine no extra residue buildup if road conditions are clear and dry
Our local bike shop still sells it for 10 bucks plus tax
Just about every brand of chain lube claims to be the best. Haven't tried them all, not even close. Of the ones that I have tried this works as well as any, better than some. It lubricates well but with the common drawback as might be expected, It attracts dirt. Sorry, fortunately don't know how well it holds up in the wet.
Used this lube before and during this year's Dirty Kanza 200. After the mile 11-14 hike a bike section, I had peanut butter mud caked around my chain, rear tire, crankset, and front derailleur. I scraped it and squirted it clean with a water bottle and continued on. What else could I do? Reapplied at mile 70 checkpoint and then at 158 after dust, mud, grit and water crossings took their toll. I was starting to hear my chain work right before the second treatment at mile 158, so I guess their recommendations were followed. I am very pleased with the performance of Dumonde Tech original. AWOL, TourRide and Dumonde Tech-no mechanical failures!
I've tried so many different chain lubes for MTBing and most just fail.. Ideally you are looking for a lube that gets between the roller and stays in place to cushion the wear and tear a chain goes thru..
I've tried Waxes, dry lubes, wet lubes, Motorcycle chain lubes, zinc lubes..
This lube stays on well and is a dirt shedder which is very important with MTBs. The chain looks dry but you can see it being retained between the links..
I use this lube on all bike chains road, cross and mtb. A little goes a long way and it lasts. I use the traditional lube not the light version and it goes on a little thick, but you do not need much to lube a chain. Like all oil based lubes, it does pick up dirt, but not nearly as quickly as most.
I've been using this lube for MTB riding in all conditions. Lasts a long time, cleans up easily and does not attract too much grim. There is a rumor however that the company may be sold to another corporation and that it will no longer be available. A salesman at a competitor told me this but I have not been able to confirm this, I'm stocking up anyway. I prefer the Lite.
No other lubricant works as well. This product goes on and stays on without attracting a lot of dirt. A bottle goes a long way, because it stays on the chain, no dripping and you can apply it sparingly. I have found no other chain lubricant that compares. Great for mountain, road and cross bikes.
Dumonde DryLight is the best I have used.
Have tried too many to list but this one seems to provide excellent lube while not becoming a dirt magnet.
Use it for Road and Mountain Biking. Just need to reapply a bit more for Mountain but if your not cleaning your chain on a regular after ride basis then you are missing the point anyway
