What do the high torque loads on an e-bike do to the chain and how does the lube combat this?
The high torque loads on an e-bike will wear down the chain much quicker than on a normal bike due to the increased and instant surges in power from the motor. This puts more strain through the chain and chainrings which will lead to higher friction from more metal to metal contact, which will lease to wear if the correct lube isn’t used. Our e-bike Lubes were developed to combat this with their unique blend of synthetic oils, a high level of bespoke additives, and Boron Nitride which means they will last longer and reduce friction across the drivetrain, even under the increased loads.
If there is increased wear on the e-bike chain does using the eBike lube make the chain wear the same as on a normal none-bike?
Using our e-bike lubes will help to dramatically reduce friction while riding and will keep the chain running smoother for much longer than a traditional lube, however, there will always be higher stresses on the chain due to the power-assisted motor reducing the life of any chain more so than on a normal bike.
Is the lubrication interval the same as a normal bike?
We would recommend cleaning and re-lubing your e-bike chain more often, as often as you can…after each ride if possible. Doing this will prolong the life of your chain and other drivetrain components which can be costly to repair.
What is Boron Nitride, what does it do?
Boron Nitride is an advanced particle that is present in our lube. It offers increased levels of durability and wears resistance as well as excellent lubrication properties. It forms a stable tribofilm, which is important to achieve the improved tribological performance needed from an e-bike specific lube.
What’s the ebike additive pack?
The ebike additive pack is the name we gave to the extra high levels of ‘extreme pressure additives’ which we have added to our ebike lubes to decrease wear, even under the higher torque loads of an ebike drive system. These help to provide increased wear protection on all treated parts.
