Green Oil On Tour
A small version of our award winning chain oil!
Green Oil On Tour was created because you asked for it. We had lots of people, bike shops owners and independent riders asking if we would manufacture a smaller bottle for touring. The idea was tested with an old 'King of Saves' shaving oil bottle filled with Green Oil, and the concept worked.
Unfortunately we couldn't use the sleek design of the original King of Shaves bottle, but we created something similar with the same great functions.
The Green Oil On Tour has a great nozzle, a gripable easy to use cap, incredible leak proofness (if thats a word - basically it won't unscrew in your bag or pocket!).
Its great for bike shops in tourist areas, who have riders wanting something pocket or saddlebag sized. Many people were already decanting Green Oil into eye dropper bottles and the like, so it seemed to make sense. The On Tour can be refilled, by removing the dropper, and topping it up from your Green Oil 100ml bottle.
Like the 100ml Green Oil, the Green Oil On Tour:
- Prevents rust
The On Tour bottle is virtually leak proof. Its about the size of your thumb. It has a beautiful cap and dropper for easy application.
Why use chain oil? A chain can be over 99% efficient.
Friction occurs between links, and lubricating the chain reduces this - increasing efficiently.
Your bike chain is exposed to the elements: water + steel = rust.
Rust = reduced efficiency (and harder pedaling!)
Rust and wear due to friction also reduce the life of your bike chain. Green Oil chain lube reduces both, extending the life of your chain, and reducing friction, for a smoother ride.
How to apply
1. Ensure the your bike is secure
2. Work out how many times you need to spin the cranks for one chain circulation - Slowly turn the cranks backwards, watching a single chain link.
3. Apply your On Tour bottle to the top part of the bottom half of the chain as illustrated in the diagram below. Apply to one length of the chain. Apply to the 'rollers', the cylinders on the chain.
4. Carefully spin the cranks a few times.
5. Continue your tour, ride off into the sunset!
How is the Green Oil On Tour green?
It contains the revolutionary Green Oil
- No PTFE
- No Petrochemical content
- Easily recyclable bottle
- Totally biodegradable
- 100% natural ingredients
We don't use palm oil - all our ingredients are sustainably sourced. We use plant based ingredients, natural molecules with similar long chain molecules to found in petrochemicals. The mixture used is sticky enough
to stay on the chain, but not so sticky excess dirt sticks to it.
Re-fill, or recycle. Here are the recycling codes.
