As you ride, Dumonde Tech Original Bicycle
Chain Lubricant forms a low-friction plastic plating which bonds to the
chain and drivetrain components. This allows your parts to last longer
and run quieter than what you'd get from any other lubricant.
comes in two concentrations. This Dumonde Tech Original is more viscous
than the Lite, even though they have the same formulation. Not to worry
if you normally use one or the other, the two Dumonde Tech Lube formulas
are compatible and may be used interchangeably.
Original is more concentrated than the Lite and excels in the most
challenging conditions. We use it on our mountain bikes and for the road
bike when the road and weather conditions promise to be poor. A coating
of the thicker Original is more durable than the Lite, so it generally
requires less frequent applications.
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
