Biomaxa Chain Lube


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.

    • 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!
  • ▹ Why is it vital to clean my chain before applying this lube 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 this chain lube.

    • 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.

    ▹ How does Biomaxa compare with teflon lubes?

    • Teflon lubes work great (especially in dry conditions) and are self-cleaning. We like that.
    • With Biomaxa you do 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.

Biomaxa Chain Lube

Awesome product my saddle bag companion for all long epic rides. The applicator makes is quick and easy no finesse or mucking around required when you reach the hut.

Craig D.

great for the road bike

Great for the road bike but no good for the dirty work on the Fat MTB .replaced with oil after just one ride in the rain and mud/clay.Road bike is sweet tho and still good after lots hard miles.

This stuff is crash hot.

I will admit that it is more expensive but it really is worth it. It sticks to the chain better in adverse conditions but it doesn't seem to retain the clay, sand, mud and dirt like other brands can. Normally I find a build up of stuff on the chain, especially in winter, but with Biomaxa there seems to be a lot less. My last ride in rubbish conditions illustrated two things, the first, 5.10 shoes are rubbish for the hike-a-bike up hill on clay (except if you are a bystander then its hilarious). The second was that although my bike was covered in mother nature my drivetrain was clean and still running flawlessly. A great product.
