Biomaxa Chain Lube

38 reviews

Naturally enhance your bicycle's performance with this all-weather multi-purpose chain lube. Whether on an epic road ride or plugging through mud, it will keep your chain whirring and purring. Made in New Zealand from lanolin, Biomaxa is 100% biodegradable and kind on our environment. No sheep jokes permitted.
+Features
  • On first application, it's really, really important to apply to a clean chain.
  • Apply the night before so the oil penetrates the links and sets into a waxy state.
  • Wipe off the excess the next morning.
  • Pedal hard.
  • Made in New Zealand from local sheep!
+FAQ
+It's vital to clean your chain thoroughly before applying Biomaxa for the 1st time.
  • Biomaxa goes on as a liquid and sets into a waxy state.
  • Use a mechanical chain cleaner and suitable cleaning solution before applying for the first time.
  • If your drivetrain is dirty, the muck will mix with the lube and set into a nasty wax that is extremely difficult to remove. Dirt in the drivetrain increases wear and it won't run as smoothly as a well cleaned, well lubed setup.
  • Apply the night before so the oil penetrates the links and sets into a waxy state.
  • Wipe off the excess the next morning.
+Tell me more about Biomaxa?
  • Lanolin is a wax which is extracted from shorn sheep’s wool in a process called scouring. Its natural qualities are ideal for lubrication, water repulsion, and it penetrates easily into the chain providing long lasting performance.
  • The multi-purpose cap design combines a precision nozzle with a chain guide cap. Wastage is minimised, giving you more value for money. The flat bottle’s compact size means it can easily be carried conveniently in a backpack pocket.
  • Biomaxa is New Zealand made. All Lanolin used in this product is sourced from NZ by local wool scouring companies. Not only is the product inside biodegradable, sustainable and naturally sourced, every part of the bottle can also be recycled.
  • Biomaxa is predominantly lanolin but contains some plant and mineral oil additives to make it suitable for mechanical lubrication purposes. Normal contact is not harmful, but prolonged skin contact may cause irritation. Wash with soap and water.
  • The lanolin formulation is safe on all materials including carbon. Biomaxa won't attack or degrade any of your bike parts.
+Biomaxa vs Teflon lubes?
  • Teflon lubes work great (especially in dry conditions) and are self-cleaning. We like that.
  • With Biomaxa you need to use a mechanical chain cleaner and suitable cleaning solution more often than when using a teflon lube. But on the flip side Biomaxa scores with two big ticks:
    • You will generally get a lot more riding between lubes - so your drive train remains sweet for longer.
    • And it's all natural - no mini oil slicks left in backcountry waterways while re-lubing.
+ Shipping
  • Items are generally packed and sent the same day your order is received.
  • Costs $7 by overnight courier within New Zealand.
  • NZ$7 by tracked airmail to Australia.
  • Around NZ$15-25 by tracked airmail to destinations elsewhere in the world - calculated in our shipping cart as you check out. 
    • More shipping and tax details in our FAQ.

      Works a treat

      I bought the whole system, chain cleaning kit, degreaser and lube. It was easy to use and results were excellent. Made a huge difference to the feel of the bike with a well serviced chain.

      Biomaxa chain lube

      $$$ but it is good. Hopefully it is worth it in the long run. Seems like it sits between a synthetic lube and a wax but less work than a wax! I would buy again. Using it on my MTB.

      Biomaxa Lube

      This is good stuff! I've just used it whilst riding Kōpiko Aotearoa and it was fantastic through rain and shine. It goes on easy and seems to easily last a full day's riding. And, it's locally made, and supports or farmers - how good is that? Highly recommended!
