Instead of resorting to performance-enhancing drugs or hidden motors in bikes, pro riders and top level enthusiasts should consider a more legal means of increasing performance – like a low friction chain.
After months of development, CeramicSpeed claims its newest low-friction UFO Racing Chains can save cyclists between 2 to 5 watts by virtue of a new and improved formula they created in-house at their R&D facility in Denmark.
According to CeramicSpeed, their new UFO Racing Chains are now available in two options: optimized KMC SL chains in both 11speed and 10speed sizes, which are compatible with SRAM, Campagnolo and Shimano, as well as a new optimized Dura-Ace HG901 11s chain specific to Shimano drivetrains.
However, just as the name implies, the UFO Racing Chains are developed for race-day applications, with an expected life of just 370 miles/600 kilometers before significant efficiency losses.
On the other hand, the company’s latest frictional tests show that the new versions are capable of shaving-off as much as 15% more friction than their predecessors.
In addition, CeramicSpeed still recommends using its Squirt chain lube after 200 miles/320 kilometers of riding, which comes with each chain along with reusable quick links and Shimano connecting pins as well.
