A Nano Coated Chain?
Muc-Offs chain is claimed to be ‘The Worlds Fastest Chain’, whether it is or not doesn’t really matter. It’s a very cool chain and the packaging alone makes this a great gift!
The friction-reducing treatment, which Muc-Off claims can deliver power savings of up to 6 watts, is also said to provide more than 400 miles of dry weather lubrication or 250+ miles in wet and muddy conditions. They also claim that there’s not sharp drop-off in performance, as can be the case with speed-optimised chains treated with dry wax. – Bike Radar
Is this a good Cycling Gift?
Sort of, it’s an awesome piece of kit but there are a couple of things to think about before going ahead and spending £135.
- Firstly do they need a new chain or will they appreciate it? If the person you’re buying for is constantly banging on about marginal gains then yes, this is the gift for them.
- You need to find out whether they ride Shimano or Campagnolo – see more about this here.
