Which Q product is right for me?

What's New

Just as the name implies, Q-BIKE is specifically formulated to be used on bicycle chains.

Q-BIKE differs from other multipurpose oils, usually known as “wet lubes”, implying that they are oil-based or liquid lubricants. Q-BIKE, on the other hand, is a wax-based lubricant or otherwise known as a “dry lubricant”.


Dry lubricants usually work better in dry environments, where dust and dirt gather around wet-oily components. This combination of oil and dirt can lead to fast deterioration of your bicycle chain. In contrast, the wax-based formula in Q-BIKE is anti-static, meaning that it repels dust, protects the chain from contamination, and lasts longer once applied.


In addition to the above-mentioned characteristics, there are additional benefits that Q-BIKE has to offer. It is biodegradable and the water-resistant formula is less likely to detach and contaminate the environment (think of an oily chain riding through a river crossing for reference).


Some helpful tips for when you use Q-BIKE:


  1. Ensure that your bicycle chain is properly and thoroughly cleaned before applying the product.


  1. You do not need to apply a lot of products to the chain. Simply rotate the pedals with your one hand while applying a thin layer of lubricant directly on the chain with your other hand.


  1. Clean your bike and chain regularly and reapply fresh lube after each clean.
