The 4oz bottle is eco-friendly! It is made from 100% Post-Consumer Recycled plastic.
As a coach of the Park City MTB team, I have found the product to stand up to the rigorous test of 100+ plus high-desert rides a season. Im glad to be promoting to my team and on my socials. Thanks for helping the planet guys!
I have to admit I've been pleasantly surprised. Often a true eco product comes with a caveat towards outright performance, but I didn't find any downsides in this case. As long as guidance on the application is followed, this lube worked a charm in the dry and mildly damp conditions I have been riding in lately, with very little mess or accumulated dirt and grime building up on the chain and jockey wheels.
Being an avid outdoor recreationalist, I appreciate it when there is an option to use plant based lubricants verses petroleum based. After all, the environment is important to me. This plant based lube is doing what it's supposed to do thus far. It's been warm and dry for months now up here in the PNW, perfect conditions for this lubricant. My gears and cogs seem quite happy and are running smoothly under its care. When the rains do eventually return, however, I will likely need to use one of those petroleum based lubricants again.
I received these products for free from the REI Trailblazers sampling program in exchange for my honest review. This lube is great! Not only is it ecofriendly but the fact that it is white makes it easy to see where I have applied it already and reduces waste. It also is a little thicker than a traditional oil based lube so I don't have to worry about it running or getting on other products. Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality and I think this little bottle will last for a long time. It's also nice to see more ecofriendly products, especially since I ride in the woods and I want to be conscious of any products I'm leaving behind.
Big fan of wax vs lube in the desert where I do all my riding. Its great and works well as long as its applied after a ride and rinsed off and left to dry overnight. Otherwise its wet and defeats the purpose. Also Im a huge fan of the biodegradable aspect. Makes me feel better about applying outside and not leaving chemicals behind.
