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.

All year round lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought some of this at my local bike shop last year and used it all through the summer and winter in the Northwest. Protects the chain well when it is wet out and lasts a long time in the summer riding. The LBS told me not to add too much and wait until you just start to hear your chain run a little rough and then put a little on.

Favorite Lube for Summer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tried Rock N' Roll, White Lightning, Boeshield, and others, but I keep coming back to Dumonde Tech Lite. You do have to keep your drivetrain pretty clean in order to get the best performance out of it, but for Utah's moon dust, nothing in my experience keeps things running quieter. It also smells pretty great, if, like me, you like somewhat strange smells...


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love this great, smells nice. This is a staple in the Competitive Cyclist bike shop....'nuff said.

Repels dirt

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Chain lube is often a dirt attractant, but this dumond fabrication manages to keep my chain clean(er). A+ for people who put their bikes through the ringer.

The good stuff

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My favorite personal lubricant. Just kidding but personally, it's my favorite bike lubricant. Apply, wipe off and then reapply every few rides at most. Lasts a long time and keeps my drivetrain quiet and dirt free.

Good stuff

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Good stuff. A fairly light coating every couple of rides does the trick. It doesn't attract much dirt/grime to your drivetrain as long as you don't overdo it, and wipe the excess off after every application. I like this better than wax lubes.

I live in dry environment where I ride gravel (farm roads that are sand or cement depending upon when graded, use and weather). Dirt would cake on my drivetrain with wax lubes. Mechanic recommended that I try Dumonde Lite on my gravel bike. I am happy, I need to clean my bike after every ride anyway and this is a cleaner solution. I have been using on my road bike as well. No complaints.

Summer lube!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great chain lube for the dry Summer months when riding in dry dusty conditions! This lube does not attract dirt /dust to the drive system which can cause early wear to the drive chain. I do a lot riding in the Summer and this is my go to lube for his reason!

As good as everyone says

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

By far the best lube I've used - 120 miles in and still not a sound from my drivetrain. As other reviews have said, seems to work best if you apply it early and wipe off the excess, then let it "cure" overnight before riding. One bottle is going to last me ages and the other lubes I've been using get left for backups and loaners.

Go to lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Teflon, PTFE, Micro-lubrication. Bah humbug. This stuff just works great as a chain lube without a bunch of gimmicky stuff. Plus it smells great. You should buy it.

Smooth and quite

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is one of the best lubes we sell. It works well to keep your chain running smooth and quite. It also last a long time.

Agree with what everyone else says!

    I didn't think I needed to chime in as everyone has raved about this stuff in these reviews, and I agree. After nearly 2 years of using it, I find it superior to everything else that I've tried. Just another tip: let it 'soak in ' preferably overnight, before wiping off, it will get into the pins and rollers and actually sort of 'dry' on the surface. I use it as a kind of 'cleaner' right after riding, wiping just a dab onto the moving chain, and then after a few hours or the next day, wipe it off with a dry cloth. Always a clean (smiling) chain, and never a squeak. I seem to get more mileage out of my chains and cassettes, but I rotate a lot of bikes so that's not necessarily proven yet. The blue (thicker) version is for when I think it might get wet, but mostly I use the yellow one.

    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.


    • 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.

    Keeps the Gunk Off

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    And it smells like candy! I definitely prefer Dumonde Tech over the super waxy White Lightning Dry Ride.

    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!
