Formulated with nanites, Orange Seal's Slide Chain Lube not only prevents wear, but its nanotechnology also fills microscopic voids in chains to effectively reduce friction. The sub-micron, lubricating nanites bury themselves into the links to keep the chain running smoothly in all types of conditions.
To ensure proper distribution of nanites, Orange Seal suspends them in a liquid solution that evaporates, leaving them behind in all the vital spots. The nanites then act as ball bearings on a molecular scale, encouraging the chain to roll over cogs rather than scrape by. Also, because the Slide Chain Lube dries, leaving behind solids, it significantly reduces the amount of dust and dirt that adheres to a chain.
Orange Seal's Slide Chain Lube comes in 2oz and 6oz bottle sizes.

- Q & A
Not very viscous
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
It seems the viscosity of milk and kind of looks like it too. Like Brock's review, i've lost a bit through the bottle's screw on applicator. that's annoying. it gets everywhere when it leaks through the threads. I've only applied it to two bikes very recently, so i cannot comment on how well it holds up, but the bottle's recommendations are for liberal use EVERYTIME you ride. that just screams gooey mess. Every other chain lube i've used suggested sparing use and the evidence to support that is a functional but very dirty chain many, many rides later. I'll put it in my car/travel bag. but it's not going to be my go-to lubricant.
Solid-performing lubricant, leaky bottle
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
When I received this lubricant I unscrewed the lid and removed the seal. Ever since I've popped the seal the bottle leaks around the cap area. I've had to keep in in the ziploc bag to prevent it from getting chain lube all over my gear and tools.
As far as the actual lubricant performance goes, I am impressed. Application is easy with the funnel cap (despite leakage) and the lube seems to absorb pretty quickly. It keeps your drivetrain running smooth and a quiet for a few rides and it doesn't attract dirt/gunk to your drivetrain. No need to apply every ride though.
Bottom line: lube is ok, bottle is cheap and there's a chance it may leak.
