MountainFLOW, a company that started out making eco-friendly ski and snowboard wax, have now ventured into the cycling industry, releasing a range of plant-based bike lubes, grease and degreaser. They are biodegradable, non-toxic, and are said to rival all other petroleum-based competitors on the market. Wouldn’t that be something? Here’s a quick intro to some eco-friendly bike maintenance products coming out of Boulder, Colorado.

MountainFLOW have released four plant-based bike chain lubes; there are dry, wet and all-weather options, as well as a wax-based chain lube. The latter is also for use in dry conditions. You apply it just as you would other chain lubes, but you need to give it 5 minutes to dry on. MountainFLOW say it will remain bonded to the drivetrain but won’t collect any dirt or grime.

The All-Weather lube is composed of a light oil, said to be great in just about every riding condition and can be used on mountain bikes, road bikes, e-bikes… you get the idea. The Wet Lube is a medium-density oil, said to provide excellent, long-lasting lubrication. What about the dry one? MountainFLOW reckon it is the only non-toxic, non-flammable dry lube on the market.
