You've come to the right place.

Step 1:
Thoroughly clean your chain with a good quality degreaser such as Smoove™ Prep Chain Cleaner. Rinse and let it dry completely. A new chain should also be cleaned to remove any oil or residue.

Step 2:
Apply to a spotlessly clean chain that is thoroughly dry. Any moisture on the chain will prevent Smoove™ from adhering to the metal.

Step 3:
Apply in a constant flow onto the rollers while slowly back-pedaling until coated and spanning every other link. Work Smoove™ into the chain while continuing to back pedal ±10 times.

Step 4:
Leave to dry/set for at least an hour, preferably overnight.

Step 5:
Do not reapply or top-up until audibly required to do so – even after a wet ride or light wash. Smoove™ lasts much longer than most other lubes! Excessive application may result in build-up around jockey wheels and chainring.


It is best to use a citrus based degreaser when cleaning your chain. If you use a normal degreaser make sure to use hot water to help soften the lube so that the surfactant in the soap can break down the lube. For best results use Smoove™ Prep Chain and drivetrain cleaner.

Just follow these easy steps:

Using Smoove Prep with a chain cleaning device:

(Click here to watch the video)

Step 1
Fill the device with approximately 25ml of Smoove™ Prep in order to reach the bottom of the brush wheels. The amount of one application is indicated on the side of the bottle. Most chain devices have a ‘fill to’ line, however, we suggest that you ignore this as one application of Smoove™ Prep will be sufficient. Now clip the chain cleaner around the chain as per the manufacturer’s recommendations. Backpedal until the visible Smoove™ chain lube is dissolved and make sure that you tilt the chain device slightly so that the brush rollers can collect the remaining cleaning solution. After removing the chain cleaner, use the remaining amount of Smoove™ Prep with a suitable brush to clean the cassette and chainrings.

Step 2:
Rinse the chain and drivetrain with sufficient clean water using a hose.

Directions for manual cleaning.

Step 1:
Pour 25ml of Smoove™ Prep in a small bowl. Dip a suitable brush in the solution and scrub the chain and drivetrain components until all visible Smoove™ chain lube has been dissolved.

Step 2:
Rinse the chain and drivetrain with sufficient clean water using a hose.

For best results use Smoove™ Prep Chain and drivetrain cleaner. If you don’t have Smoove™ Prep available then kerosene, paraffin or any type of chain degreaser should work. Make sure to use a soap as a final cleaning step to get rid of the oily film that the hydrocarbon solvent leaves behind.

Smoove™ works best if you apply the correct amount of lube. Enough lube has been applied when a small droplet forms between the two rollers on the narrow plates.

Refer to the correct application video.

The best results is achieved with Smoove™ when you only apply it when the chain starts sounding dry or when you scrub and degrease the chain. When the bike gets a normal wash to remove dust it is usually not necessary to reapply Smoove™.

This is normally a tell-tale sign that you are applying lube too often, try applying more lube less often

Smoove™ was engineered to work in all conditions – it’s the only true universal chain lube on the market that lasts longer than most other lubes and works on any bicycle chain.

Smoove™ works best if you give it enough time to dry before the ride (at least an hour). We advise that you apply it the night before.

Smoove™ works unbelievably well on road bikes, simply apply as per the instructions.

We have consistently measured improved drivetrain wear when using Smoove™, however, it will greatly depend on what type of riding you do and what conditions you mostly ride in.

The forces inside a roller chain cause the metal surfaces to wear and create friction that leads to power loss. Lubing your chain with Smoove™ will drastically reduce this.

It is very important to always screw the cap back on preventing the lube inside the nozzle from drying out and forming a plug. It also helps to make sure that the nozzle doesn’t touch the chain to prevent pieces of debris from getting stuck in the tip.

Smoove™ was specifically engineered for bicycle chains but it works very well to lube your gear cables and housings.
