UFO Drip Application and FAQ

For new chains and first application, fully clean and dry the chain, ensuring to rinse all cleaner off before drying. We recommend CeramicSpeed Clean Drivetrain for this purpose. Always shake your UFO Drip bottle well before each use to ensure an even application of waxes.

For new chains and first application, fully clean and dry the chain, ensuring to rinse all cleaner off before drying. We recommend CeramicSpeed Clean Drivetrain for this purpose. Always shake your UFO Drip bottle well before each use to ensure an even application of waxes. Apply UFO Drip directly to the chain rollers over the cassette, rotating the chain slowly backwards to coat the entire length of the chain twice. Next, apply UFO Drip to the inside of the chain, along the rollers on the bottom span over the chain and coat the entire length of the chain twice.

Allow UFO Drip to dry a minimum of 8 hours for best results and clean performance.

For follow up applications with an overall clean drive train, wipe the chain surface with a dry and clean cloth. Shake the UFO Drip bottle well. Apply UFO Drip directly to the chain rollers over the cassette, rotating the chain slowly backwards. Coat the entire length of the chain twice. Let dry for 8 hours. If your drive train has become thoroughly dirty and contaminated, begin with a full cleaning & coating as you would for a first application. 

 


FAQ


What temperature can I apply UFO Drip?
5-35 °C / 41 - 95 degrees Fahrenheit

What temperature is safe to store UFO Drip?
5-30 °C / 41 - 86 degrees Fahrenheit

Can UFO Drip be used in all riding conditions?
Yes, UFO Drip was developed to provide maximum performance and cleanliness across all riding disciplines and weather conditions. For rides that encounter wet conditions or rain, the chain must be dried following the ride with a fresh coating of UFO Drip applied to ensure the best protection and continuing optimization.

Storage is stated 10-30°C on the bottle. Can it go lower or higher?
Stress tests below 5°C and above 35°C have been performed. At these temperatures, the viscosity can become quite thick and it becomes necessary to shake well to make the UFO Drip flow again. The first cm may still be thicker and this is OK to apply to the chain
as the functionality is still present. In extreme cases it may be necessary to clear the cap with a needle.

Can I apply UFO Drip onto a factory UFO Chain?
UFO Drip is perfect for re-lubing the UFO-chain. Use it the same way as re-coating: Always shake the bottle well before each use - event if it feels liquid. Clean the surface of the UFO-chain gently with a dry cloth. Apply 5-7 ml over the cassette, rotating the chain
slowly backwards. Make sure the full length of the chain is coated two times. Let it dry minimum 8 hours for best results & clean performance.

Why do you recommend to wait overnight after applying UFO Drip? How long do I need to wait?
The wax particles in the lube work best when they are dry and merged together as a solid wax . In the bottle the particles are dissolved in water and the water needs to evaporate before the wax particles can merge together as a solid wax coating. Additionally, allowing the wax to fully dry prevents dirt, grime, or
road dust to contaminate the wax or create a dirty chain.

What is the clicking sound inside the bottle when shaking?
UFO Drip is unique as it is made initially with dry wax powder in order to achieve the least friction of all lubes. If not disturbed for many days, or after big temperature variations, the viscosity will be thicker. To efficiently reconstitute the formula, a bolt is included
inside the bottle, ensuring even mixing and returning UFO Drip to a liquid/thinner viscosity.

The first cm UFOD out of the cap is thick?
If not disturbed for many days, or after big temperature variations, a small amount of wax can congeal in the nozzle. This is normal and OK to apply onto the chain where it will disperse across the
links.

Can I fly with UFO Drip?
Yes
