Kick water to the curb.
Wet climates beat up drivetrains, but Motorex's Wet Protect Lube gives water the one-two punch, kicking it to the curb so your components stay slick and clean for as long as possible. Wet Protect provides optimum lubrication, with additives that allow it to penetrate into your chain faster, and last longer when the weather is inclement. To shed mud and water, the lube is made from a fully biodegradable synthetic compound with hydrophobic properties that keep moisture beading, and rolling off. The lube comes in a medium-sized 100ml drip bottle for direct and precise application, or two different aerosol cans that come in both 56ml, and 300ml sizes for over all application.

Keep it lubed
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Riding in the rain, snow, and mud is fun but can be rough on the drivetrain. This wet protect lube will keep your bike running smooth when conditions get rough.
Dry lube devotee tries wet ...
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'm a road guy ... but I'm also a 'cross guy, and that sometimes means riding in foul weather and muddy conditions.
In the past, I've generally steered clear of wet lubes, because of their tendency to attract grit from road spray as well as dirt when playing in the mud, not too mention their tendency to spray black gunk all over your right leg if your chain was not thoroughly cleaned and wiped down for a reapplication.
I haven't experienced that with this lube. Starting with a clean chain, I applied a couple drops to every roller on my chain and let it sit overnight to soak in. The lube was viscous enough that that it did not drip and leave a gooey mess on my floor, but leave my chain feeling almost sticky, the way some other lubes can.
The real test was how it handled in the mud during a recent ride on the trails in one of the local parks; while there was definitely mud splatter all over my downtube, bottom bracket shell, chainstays and wheels, my chain seemed cleaner than I would have expected.
When I got around to cleaning my bike a few days later, I really didn't feel any grit in the chain before spraying it down and washing the bike.
I'm pretty darned sure that in relatively banal wet conditions on the road, that the lube will last and protect the chain without having to reapply after every ride, and yet will not attract the same kind of grime that causes chains to wear so much more quickly when riding in bad conditions.
And at half the price of Dumonde Tech, I anticipate there will be more silver bottles showing up on my worktable.
