It’s like high-performance racecar oil, but for your bike.

Dumonde Tech Bicycle Chain Lube Lite will keep your drivetrain components cleaner, allow them to last longer and run quieter than what you'd get from any other lubricant. It comes in two concentrations. This Dumonde Tech Lite is less viscous than the Original.

Dumonde Tech Lite soaks into the pivots a tad quicker and leaves a thinner residue. We use it on our road bikes exclusively. Though it can be used on mountain bikes, it requires more frequent applications. As you ride, it forms a low-friction plastic plating which bonds to the chain. It's environmentally sensitive as well.

To get the best results from Dumonde Tech lubes, first degrease your chain and dry it thoroughly prior to the first application. This effectively primes the surface for the "plating" effect that makes the lube so successful. For the first application, we recommend putting one drop on each link to really aid the plating effect, wiping the excess from the chain after it has had time to work itself into the pins. When your chain begins to get noisy, it's time to reapply. Use soap and water to clean the chain prior to re-application -- strong solvents and degreasers will remove the protective plastic plating from the chain, putting you back at square one.

This Dumonde Tech Bicycle Chain Lube Lite comes in a 4oz bottle that should last for 40 or so applications.

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.

BC Bike EXPERT Recommended!

  • 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.

    The $10 Upgrade

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There are a lot of ways to spend a lot of money to go faster on a bicycle. And most of them don't work for crap. On the other hand, you can spend $10 for this upgrade in a bottle.



    Every time I use it, it's like I just got a new chain. Pedal strokes feel more fluid, shifting improves. And my chain stays clean! Clean = Fast

    Quiet Chains

      I like this lube alot I use it on my road bike, keeps the chain quiet, does not have to be reapplied often, and is easy to clean. Follow the instructions listed in the description on this page for best results, especially for the first application.

      Works great even in dusty conditions

        I am crazy about keeping my drivetrain clean and laser precise, the Dumonde tech lite makes it easy to keep the chain clean. I mostly ride in the southwest and the dust tends to gunk up on on the chain. It also works wonders on wet & muddy conditions on the DH bike.

        Works great

          Nice light lube that is easy to clean with a mild degreaser.
