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.

Great Chain Lube

Have been using this product for a couple of years. Put on a clean chain, it lasts really well and is great for the environment as well.

Good Stuff

I think it's great. Goes on easily and stays on for a long time - in wet or dry conditions. My family don't like the smell of it when the bike is in the car. It is a bit sheepy.

Biomaxa Chain Lube

I recently purchased some Biomaxa Chain Lube and have been using it on my road and recreational bikes. I have found the lube to be very effective; producing a smooth and quiet performance. The 'applicator' is particularly effective and makes the lube very easy to use. I am confident that given the source of the lube is 100% New Zealand sheep it will be tough and will perform well in all conditions. Peter Norman South Australia

Biomaxa

Of course I really like my biomaxa, ,which looks impressive sitting on my kitchen bench waiting for me to find time to give my road bike a real good clean prior to letting the biomaxa loose in it
