Viking Juice is a long-lasting conditioning lube

Viking Juice is a long-lasting, all-conditioning lube

Viking Juice is a long-lasting, all-conditioner juice lube oil that, when used sparingly, lives up to its promises. It is made in the UK, is entirely biodegradable, and will not pick up dirt on the trail. Because it is thinner than most wet lubes, it is very absorbent but requires multiple coats to work.

The lubricating ingredient from Viking Juice is suspended in an ultra-fine solvent that is evaporative after a few minutes, leaving a silky smooth string and sending the ingredient deep into the voids of rollers and rings for good penetration.

For optimal grip, Juice Lubes suggests applying up to four times to a clean, dry chain before driving; but, in winter dirt, I find that twice is plenty, and even then, it leaves a squeaky, bumpy ride.

Because the lubricant is liquid, it is simple to spill a few drops while applying, which could lead to some waste.

You receive a really comfortable and silky leash with just two applications (one before riding, one after cleaning). The lubricant stays in place for a few journeys after washing and is quite easy to clean when the time comes.

If you prefer a clean, quiet, and smooth chain and do not mind waste, Lubes Viking Juice is well worth trying, even though its nature requires you to use a little more than you would with a standard wet lubricant.
