To keep your bike chain in perfect condition during wet weather, you should apply a chain wax after every time you’ve been biking in the rain and once you have cleaned your chain. This will reduce wear and tear, maintain the performance of your chain and help it last longer, saving you money on replacement parts.

It is ideal for wet conditions, as the formula thickens and dries, creating a highly water resistant coating to actively prevent rust and corrosion.
