Medium Viscosity, Wet Chain Lubricant
- Long-lasting performance in mixed conditions
- Superior wear protection and lubrication under high load
- Biodegradable formula safe for you and the environment
Chainj is a medium viscosity lubricant that has been engineered to provide superior wear protection and lubrication under high load, reducing wear to drivetrain components by providing low friction and high efficiency. Chainj is a proprietary vegetable/synthetic chain lubricant engineered at the molecular level to associate ionically with metal surfaces creating a protective barrier, and keeping it there, for added life and increased anti-wear properties. As an added bonus, Chainj is biodegradable and a great solvent helping to remove contaminants from the chain.
Chainj is also a good general purpose lubricant. In the case of two metal surfaces in contact under a load, the vegetable oils are more slippery, enabling the metal surfaces to slide easier, reducing friction. Additionally, the negative charge, molecule size, and viscosity of Chainj makes it a much better penetrant versus synthetic lubricants. This makes Chainj great for many tasks such as lubricating derailleur pivots and cables, loosening stuck hardware and components or removing gunk.
To get the best performance from your chain lubricant, it is important to choose one that matches your riding conditions. Pedro’s offers a lubricant for all types of conditions from dry desert riding to the mud and snow of a New England cross race. Each bottle of Pedro’s chain lubricant offers a Conditions Guide with easy to understand icons to help you choose the correct lubricant. These can also be found on each product page. The following provides a general overview for our four lubricants:
Ice Wax 2.0: Natural wax dry lubricant designed for dry to limited mixed conditions.
Go!: Biodegradable, low viscosity, wet lubricant for clean and dry to mixed conditions.
Chainj: Biodegradable, medium viscosity, wet lubricant for mixed to wet conditions.
Syn Lube: Synthetic lubricant for extreme wet and dirty conditions and maximum longevity.
Properly applying lubricant will ensure you get the best performance possible. Check out our Guide: How to Lube Your Chain to learn the proper technique.
Vegetable oils provide many advantages over petroleum and straight synthetic lubricants. To learn more, check out our write-up Why Use Vegetable Oil-based Lubes?.
Clearly it is important for a chain lube to perform well and be long lasting. So why would you want it to biodegrade? Take a look at the write-up Should Chain Lube Biodegrade? to get a quick look at how biodegradation works and reasons why choosing biodegradable chain lube might be a better for your bike, for you, and for the planet.
Chainj is pronounced just like change. Saying Chainj as Chain-Jay is incorrect, but we’ll still like you even if you call it that!
A clean bike is a happy bike! Keeping your bike clean is an essential part of bicycle maintenance ensuring better performance, increased safety, easier repairs, increased life of all parts of the bike, and more fun on your next ride!

- Apply lubricant to rollers of the chain while backpedaling drivetrain.
- For best performance, wait at least 1 hour.
- Before riding use a rag to wipe off all excess lubricant from outside surfaces of chain.
