Long days riding gravel can make it nearly impossible to keep things clean, well-lubricated, and running fast. To counter this we partnered with a spin-off from the University of Arkansas Nanotechnology Department to create a high performance chain lube and cleaner, called GRAX. The results are in. Dirt or pavement, rain or mud, slop or muck, GRAX keep riders rolling faster, longer.
GRAX is short for gravel wax. It is a wax-based lube engineered to shed water, dirt, and mud, and keep chain rollers well lubricated and running smooth through endless miles of abuse. We tested GRAX’s efficiency vs. several competitors in standard dry conditions, as well as the nasty stuff. After countless hours in labs and four full seasons of riding gravel roads and trails around northwest Arkansas we found GRAX to be the most efficient, and most durable, lubricant on the market.
We tested two primary performance properties in GRAX, 1) it's ability to repel moisture, and 2) wattage expenditure in both dry and muddy conditions. GRAX was tested against multiple experimental hydrophobic lubricants as well as the most expensive and high performing products on the market. GRAX excels in all categories. It ensures you not only have the most efficient lube available, it also sheds water and dirt better than any product. It shaves watts, keeps your drivetrain running smoothly and quietly for more miles in the most extreme conditions, and improves the longevity of your drive train components.
GRAX is available in a 4oz bottle (up to 20 applications)
I have been an Allied customer for 5+ years. I finally decided to try this product after reading all of the reviews. My drive train sounded like crud, but Grax + Grax drive train cleaner had my Echo sounding and riding like a new bike.
Using as suggested and it does a great job keeping my chain running smooth. Best at dry conditions where I have used it most.
Took the gravel bike out for the first time since applying the GRAX. So far so good. Very quiet drive train so far.
Grax has been the first chain lube I've used where I've actually thought, "Wow! this stuff really works!" And I've used quite a few different brands over the years. I took the advice of the mechanic at Meteor and started with a new chain, stripped of the factory grease, and used the Grax from the start. This extra step was well worth it. Riding through wet, muddy conditions or dry, dusty ones, my chain remains clean and silent and smooth. I have cleaned it once with the Grax cleaner and reapplied the lube, and it's good as new. Really happy with this product. Thanks!
Very quiet. Feels super smooth. Only getting about 70 miles per application (gravel riding). Not as clean as I wanted. I am not sure The added cost is worth it. If I was a very fast rider, I would use it on race days.
