Muc-Off has launched a new nanotube chain that promises a 10-watt increase in performance efficiency.
According to Muc-Off, its new chain is the culmination of ten years of research and development, which was used by Chris Froome during his historic Tour de France/Vuelta a Espana Grand Tour Double, this year.
Muc-Off claims its nanotube is more efficient than the competition’s wax treated chains, by virtue of their new nanotube lube, which was specially developed to work alongside it.
Both can be purchased directly from Muc-Off’s website here.

A TRULY HIGH PERFORMANCE BIKE CHAIN
Proving savings of over 10 watts* against Ceramic Speed’s Shimano Dura-Ace UFO Chain over a race distance on our dynamometer, the NTC is the culmination of thousands of hours of research and development into drivetrain optimisation.
To create this revolutionary product, we sonic cleanse a Shimano Dura-Ace chain and then hand treat it with a proprietary nanotube formulation. Once in the hands of the customer, it simply needs to be run-in on a turbo for 4-6 hours before it reaches its optimum lubrication state.
The Nanotube Chain already has proven legitimacy on the international stage, having helped Sir Bradley Wiggins smashed the Hour Record, the GB Cycling team used chains optimised with this very same treatment on their path to 12 medals at the 2016 Olympic Games and Team Sky and Chris Froome used an NTC chain to ride to victory in the 2017 Grand Tour in France AND Vuelta a Espana!
What makes the NTC so special is its ability to deliver wattage savings consistently over long periods of time and in all weathers. Other chains may claim to be ‘the fastest’ but what they don’t tell you is for how long and in what conditions.
A major finding to come from Muc-Off’s Development House was the shorter durability of Ceramic Speed Shimano UFO Chain. Whilst efficiency of this product was admittedly quite good in the first few minutes, registering at around 4.5 – 5 watts, this performance rapidly deteriorated after only 18 minutes!
