Muc-off Team Sky Hydrodynamic Lube
£16 for 50ml, muc-off.com
‘There are times in races that you hear a lot of other teams’ bikes creaking and cranking,’ says Sir Brad. ‘And to me that’s friction, and to me that’s slowing you down.’ Muc-off clearly agreed, and developed a wax-based lube to achieve that holy harmony betwixt low friction, durability and foreign ingress, with the literal dripdown tech reaching consumer level with this, its Hydrodynamic Lube. At £16 a pop it’s pricey, but then speed doesn’t come for free.
