Muc-Off Nano Tube Chain (Shimano)

Proving savings of over 10 watts* against Ceramic Speed’s Shimano Dura-Ace UFO Chain over a race distance on our dynamometer, the NTC is the culmination of thousands of hours of research and development into drivetrain optimisation.

To create this revolutionary product, we sonic cleanse a Shimano Dura-Ace chain and then hand treat it with a proprietary nanotube formulation. Once in the hands of the customer, it simply needs to be run-in on a turbo for 4-6 hours before it reaches its optimum lubrication state.

What makes the NTC so special is its ability to deliver wattage savings consistently over long periods of time and in all weathers. Other chains may claim to be ‘the fastest’ but what they don’t tell you is for how long and in what conditions.

A major finding to come from Muc-Off’s Development House was the shorter durability of Ceramic Speed Shimano UFO Chain. Whilst efficiency of this product was admittedly quite good in the first few minutes, registering at around 4.5 - 5 watts, this performance rapidly deteriorated after only 18 minutes!

In comparison, the NTC only continues to get faster, with over 10 watts advantage against Ceramic Speed’s latest treatment UFO Shimano Chain after four hours. In performance terms, this means that the NTC will give you a gain of 3 miles over a 112- mile Ironman bike stage, calculated using the average time of 6 hours and 25 minutes.

Unlike other optimised chains currently available in the market, the NTC maintains its performance in all-weather conditions.

*Over a 112-mile Ironman stage.

  • Incredibly low friction.

  • Class-leading performance.

  • For use in ALL weather conditions.

  • More durable than wax optimised chains.

  • Each chain is hand treated using Muc-Off proprietary process to maximise performance.

A TRULY HIGH PERFORMANCE BIKE CHAIN

THE SCIENCE EXPLAINED

So, what’s the science behind it? One of the primary ingredients of the lubricant is nanotubes, which are composed graphene and rolled into a tube. Now imagine the metal of a bicycle chain’s inner and outer plates. To the naked eye it may look smooth, but at a microscopic level, it is in fact quite rough and ragged. As the chain is run through the drivetrain, these jagged edges catch on each other, which in turn causes friction.

The job of a nanotube is to fill these gaps, creating a slippery smooth surface that minimizes metal-on-metal resistance. The end results? Substantial wattage savings that can cut significant time from a ride and the peace of mind that it won’t change with the weather.

Muc-Off Nanotube Chain Lube

We’ve also developed a top-up bottle of Nanotube Lube, which will bring the chain to within 1-2 watts of its optimum state!
