REVOLVER FrictionLESS TREATED CHAINS
£45.00 – £75.00
We now offer a range of waxed chains and a wax treatment service for riders wanting to take the advantage of saving every watt come race day. Chains which have undergone our in-house FrictionLESS optimisation treatment result in a typical power saving of 3-5 watts over a new chain of the same model and 1-3 watts over the best traditional wet or dry lubed chains. This represents great performance value for money when measuring the cost of gains against equipment upgrades anywhere on your bike.
You can send us your own chain or have a purchased chain order sent directly to us or select from the chain model options below. If you require a chain that isn’t listed here please contact us for a custom quote and we will be happy to accommodate.

Our FrictionLESS treatment involves ultrasonic cleaning in two separate agents, the chain is heated and then immersed in our formulation of Paraffin wax, PTFE and Molybdenum Disulphide (MoS2) and again ultrasonically agitated. The final stage is a further dusting of PTFE which helps reduce drive-train friction further and gives the chain that familiar white dusted look. The end result is one of the slipperiest chains available at any price.
Life expectancy of waxed chain treatments will largely depend on outdoor weather but typically will last up to 380km in dry weather conditions. After that the chain can be re-treated or topped up with our dry lube formulation and will then run to within 1-1.5 watts of its optimal treated performance. The FrictionLESS treatment won’t effect the original chains life expectancy (refer to manufacturers guidelines).
Considering the extra cost?
“Why not sacrifice that – slotted, hollow pin, super-light chain that won’t increase your TT/Tri performance at all for a ‘regular’ top quality FrictionLESS treated chain that will save 1-1.5% of your total power output at the same price”
Harry Walker, Revolver founder.
