About CeramicSpeed UFO Chain KMC 11S
Thanks to the extremely low friction, CeramicSpeed UFO Chain 11-Speed have the unique property to give you free speed or help you save watts on a racing distance.
CeramicSpeed's ultrafast racing chains are carefully selected from high quality suppliers and optimised by hand in Denmark. Included in the UFO Chain packaging you will find the special CeramicSpeed/Squirt lube, which we strongly recommend in the maintenance of the racing chain in order to get the most out of the chain after the UFO treatment is worn off, approx. after 320 km/200 miles. The CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chains are for all riders that want to save between 2-5 watts on competition day. Compatible with Shimano, SRAM and Campy both for 11s systems.
The CeramicSpeed UFO Chains are developed for unmatched racing performance and are intended for race-day applications. After approximately 320 km/200 miles of use under clean riding conditions, the chain features traces of the optimisation treatment, so even if the number of saved watts decreases, you will still be riding a high quality chain, performing beyond standard chains. After this mileage CermaicSpeed recommend to use Squirt lube.
Be aware that the UFO treatment is not optimised for wet and muddy conditions, which might cause corrosion on the chain.
Squirt lube - based on a wax formula, like the special treatment of the UFO Chain and thus, the most suitable for the maintenance of your optimised chain after the optimisation treatment wears off. CeramicSpeed has selected Squirt as the recommended lube thanks to its unique abilities to extend the chain lifetime and due to its extremely low friction. When using Squirt, after the 320 km/200 miles, please follow the instructions written on the lube bottle.
Note that the huge watts saving of 2-5 watts is achieved within the first 320 km/200 mile interval of the racing chain and cannot be expected at the same level after the UFO treatment is worn off.
Important: This is a racing chain optimised for 320 km of clean riding conditions. Do not clean or lubricate the chain before the mileage is used. If needed, use a dry cloth or a soft brush. If you have been riding under wet conditions within the mileage, you can lube your chain with the Squirt lube provided to avoid corrosion. If you lube the chain within the mileage, it will slightly influence the performance of the chain.
