The other Lite.

Unlike every other bike product in the world, the ‘Lite’ in Dumonde Lite Bicycle chain lube doesn’t refer to its weight. Well, not in the usual sense. It refers to viscosity. The reason that this is so important is that you want a clean drivetrain.

Heavy (thick) chain lubes leave a wet, sticky residue on your chain. That attracts dirt, which is cycled through your drivetrain. Dumonde Lite quickly works its way into your chains pivots and forms a low-friction plastic plating which bonds to the chain. It’s designed to leave your chain feeling dry, so dirt falls off before it gums up your drivetrain. Which is nice, because dirt is one of the reasons that drivetrains die.

  • Low-viscosity
  • Leaves your drivetrain cleaner

Less is more

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Dumonde Tech is my go to lube of choice. Follow the instructions for awesome shifting performance, and an overall happy drivetrain. Works awesome, highly recommend you check it out.

CHAIN LUBE

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This lube is great. Once you apply it I get around 450 miles on my chain before it starts talking to me for "more lube". Very quiet chain with this lube.

Great Stuff

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ride in a desert climate, so it is dry and dusty most of the year. This stuff is the best I've found for my riding conditions. A simple wipe of the chain with a rag when coming back from a ride is enough to keep my chain clean for several rides between cleanings. This stuff doesn't attract too much gunk (the blue version attracts a little too much gunk, which is why I use the yellow) and it smells good, too. A clean chain means a prettier bike, a more efficient drive train (more power), longer lasting components and less likelihood of chain marks on the leg! What are you waiting for?

The right amount of lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the only lube I have been using on my Santa Cruz 5010 and Surly Long Haul Trucker. The lite is perfect for the drier conditions I am normally riding in.

Silky smooth

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Well of course that what lube does.... but dumonde lite does not build up on your drivetrain which just attracts dust, dirt, etc. Put it on sparingly, small drop per link, wipe down and don't repeat until you start to hear your chain talk to you. It's the best hands down.

Desert Riding Lube!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my now go to lube. Smells great and does the trick. I found that these steps are best to use on this lube to get optimal performance out of it.
1. Clean your chain with a rag and/or brush first.
2. Apply the lube to each link but definitely DO NOT over do it.
3. Wipe off excessive lube.
4. Enjoy the smell!

Quality Lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Quality lube! Just so happens to smell great, but more importantly it doesn't leave excessive residue and keeps your drive train running smooth. My top choice from all the lubes we carry!

Smells Good

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love this lube. Goes on light and doesn't build up on the chain. Did I mention it smells great when you are putting it on your chain? I use it for both my mountain bikes and commuters.

Great chain lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This Lite version is my go to lube for road riding, or riding in dry, but not too dusty MTB conditions. It keeps the drivetrain running smoothly and is plenty durable. When more durability is needed (more dust or if it's wet out) then you'll want to with the Original blue option. Great product.

Simple, and works great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Dumonde Tech Lite Bicycle Chain Lube is quiet, fast, and keeps dirt off of your chain. It’s easy to apply and stays on longer than other lubes I’ve used. I recommend it!

Great lube for dry dusty conditions

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I live in Bend, Oregon. We do not get much wet weather. Dry dusty hard pan and sand. This is a great chain lube for these conditions. Does not fling off and does not pick up much dirt at all. I use it lightly (2 rotations of chain during application). This works great for several hours of riding. Clean chain and repeat for next ride.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I know very little about bikes.

In fact, it's rather embarrassing. Seriously.



And while I am taking small strides to change this terrible dearth of basic knowledge, I consult folks around the Backcountry / Competitive Cyclist office in the meantime.



In asking our most knowledgeable, experienced and veteran bike nerd employees - 4 out of 4 agreed.

THIS IS THE BEST LUBE. THIS IS IT. THERE IS NOTHING ELSE.

I didn't even say anything...all 4 recommended it independently of each other.



What do I know about bike lube? Nothing.

But these strong recommendations were enough to convince me that this was the only option for lube.



My nO_Ob observations:



*It's a nice yellow color.



*The texture is viscous without being nasty - I kept hearing how the 'lite' part is sposto be really nifty. Sure. It's great. I think?



*I don't mind the smell - It's a weird combo of sweet, candy (smarties maybe?) with the acrid scent of a rubber tire. Interesting but not offensive.



* Pretty easy to clean up, though I have nothing else to compare it to....what do I know?

Best chain lube for road bikes

    I've been a Tri Flow lube user for five plus years. A friend told me about this lube and I decided to give it a try-I'm hooked. I like that it's thin, runs very smooth, reduces chain noise, and most of all-it doesn't seem to pick up dirt like the Tri Flow did. Until something better comes along, it's what I'll be using. Highly recommend the Lite for the rider who keeps bike well maintained (frequent attention). If not, then try the Original.

    Excellent

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'm sure all lubes are equally good, but after using this for a couple of months, I don't think i'll try anything else. After a good cleaning, applying this lube really seems to make a difference. It seems to last "forever" (in dry conditions) and is noticeably slicker after it's applied (and given a chance to dry).



    I love it.
