Chain Lubricant

White Lightning's “Self-Cleaning” wax-based lubricant is the original, unchanged, and some say the best chain, derailleur, and cable lube around. Pick up a squeeze tube to try out, and then come back for the big Jug-O'Lightning when you find out what's up.

Love It

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Some of my fav lube. Works great and stays great. Grab a few and you'll be set for a while!

Good lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I make sure to lube my chain before every ride as I live in a dry climate. This lube is easy to apply, keeps my drivetrain quiet and rolling smoothly. I do like how this lube is almost wax like when you let it dry on your chain. Seems to add another layer of protection to keep dust and dirt from getting trapped in your chain.

Great for dry trails

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Living in Utah, most of our riding is on somewhat dry/dusty trails - while traditional wet lube attracts and traps dust, dry lube like White Lightning does just the opposite. Dry lube is like a viscose wax - it's a liquid when you apply it, but then you let it dry before riding. In doing so, it creates a wax-like barrier to protect the chain, without causing a mess or attracting dust during your ride. Highly recommended for anyone who tends to ride dry trails more often than not.

Great lube

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this for years after recommendation from my old mechanic. It works great. The chain lasts a long time and gives great performance. I also like the fact that it is far less messy when I have to deal with the chain.

Definitely a must have for bike maintenance. I use this on my mountain bike, and since then my chair is nice, clean, and lubricated. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get their clean on.

Clean and smooth

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my go to lube, it dries right on the chain eliminating the build up of dust which traditional lubes tend to attract. Lubing your chain on a regular basis is quick and makes things run better for longer. Highly recommended.

Bike Lube

Does the job, have nothing negative to say about it, and hard to rave in favor of lube, but it works well!

Does what it says, but really often

    This stuff really does shed the dirt and grime that get on the chain. Because of that though, it comes off quicker than grease does, and comes off easier on clothes/hands etc. So, reapply often to get the best results from the dirt/debris shedding functionality. Not much to complain about if you do that!

    great product

      I use this every couple rides and it has kept my bikes running smooth. it doesn't collect dirt (easily) and keeps my bikes running great.

      Great lube!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have been using this exclusively for years on my mountain and road bikes. I agree it leaves a waxy residue to a degree but the protection is invaluable. When applying which I do on a work stand by turning the crank it does sling a bit of the lube. But just as always as any good mechanic would have on a hand a shop rag to wipe off the frame. Great stuff and one should give it a try.

      Decent Lube

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Works alright. Kinda greased up my chain more than I liked. Left some creepy residue on my chain/bike frame

      Super smooth, super clean

        You like it clean and slippery? This is your stuff - sets up nice on the chain and keeps things silky smooth for lots of miles. When its time to reapply, a tiny bit of citrus cleaner and a rag gets you shiny and ready for more. Oh and if that weren't enough, also extremely flammable for all your grill lighting needs (don't really do that...).

        love this stuff

          this really is a great product! put it on a new chain and it will keep that chain clean and protected as well as well lubricated. it's especially great if your riding wet and muddy conditions!

          good stuff

            keeps everything moving as it should. very good keeping sand and dirt from sticking to your chain an other precious parts. excellent lubricant, been using it for years.

            OK Lube

              This lube doesn't leave as much grime on the chain as some other lubes I have used, but if you have a problem with your chain, you better be carrying some surgical gloves in your saddle bag, because your hands will still be covered in grease after handling your chain, even with this lube. I have also noticed that this lube doesn't last as long on the chain, so you have to apply it more often. According to the instructions, that is a feature of this lube, as it sheds itself from your chain, it also sheds the dirt, making your components last longer. I would recommend this lube, but listen carefully to your drivetrain, it will tell you when it needs lubed again.

              Fine for the East

                A lot of discussion whether this is an East Coast intended lube. I would say yes. It shed wet soils and trail debris efficiently, but didn't perform nearly so well when I moved to CA for undergrad. I rode this lube primarily in PA/VT, and did consistently clean my chain after long rides because of general issues with mud/grit. I will admit that such consistent cleaning probably helped maintain the chain in suitable condition for this wax-based lube. Summary: if you ride on the torturous, ever-shifting conditions of the East where humidity is king, White-Lightning could be your Queen.

                Doesn't last long

                  I wanted the wax-based lube to work, I loved the idea of a cleaner chain and parts. But it just didn't last long enough for me. I found that when I applied it properly it was good for about 150 to 200 miles then I would have to reapply it. The final straw came when it ran dry during a ride, I still had a good two hours back to the house with a squeaky chain. Switched to tri-flow and never looked back.

                  great taste less filling

                    i didn't really pay attention to the bottle size when i ordered, but now i realize 8oz is twice the size of your standard squeeze bottle you'd find in most shops, which i LOVE cause it's lasts a ton longer. I had been using the rock n' roll from my LBS, but that would do really weird things if i left it in my car in the sun. This one has worked great and doesn't get bloated and explode in my car (at least not so far).

                    good stuff maynard

                      works very well without excess grease and last significantly longer than the pedros-bad experience with the cap

                      sold on this brand, no reason to switch or try anything else
