ULTRASONICALLY TREATED IN REX R&D LAB The secret of this new lube is the Black Diamond particles that are mixed into the lube in a time-consuming ultrasonication process at our factory’s Racing Service lab. The Black Diamond particles significantly improve the properties of the lube: Lower friction, lower wear and increased rain resistance. In continuous metal-to-metal contact that occurs in drivetrain while riding, the particles form an ultra-thin and hard layer that minimizes friction and wear, and is also waterproof NEXT LEVEL COMBINATION OF DRY AND WET WEATHER PERFORMANCE Previously, seeking for the lowest possible friction in a chain lube has meant sacrificing all-weather performance. So-called “wet” lubes have traditionally been very energy-stealing. Rex Black Diamond combines test-winning friction levels with strong weather resistance in a previously unseen way. Black Diamond has been tested in demanding race conditions by our elite athlete team. The true king of chain lubes! N-KINETIC™ WAX FEATURING THE LATEST RACE SKI WAX TECHNOLOGY They have upgraded the wax blend used in Black Diamond lube to the same Rex N-kinetic™ technology that is used in the best cross-country ski waxes. The slightly lower viscosity results into lower friction and better lube penetration into the chain. Rex is well known for its world cup level fluorinated ski waxes and is an expert in paraffin wax-based applications with six decades’ worth of experience. WAX BASED SOLVENT-FREE, NON-VAPORIZING, UNDILUTED Adding solvent or water to a chain lube is generally thought to be a great way to reduce manufacturing cost and giving the manufacturer a better margin. At Rex, we think otherwise. Every drop you apply on the chain is 100% lubricant and not something that will evaporate into the air. Unlike with most chain lubes, there is no need to wait until the solvent evaporates before you can ride your bike. UP TO 30 WAXINGS FROM A SINGLE BOTTLE UP TO 500 KM WITH ONE WAXING

Longer life for e-bike drivetrain. The longest lasting lube in the world as measured by Zero Friction Cycling. New e-bike optimized version is now available! AMAZING LONGEVITY OVER 1000 KM’S WITH A SINGLE APPLICATION Zero Friction Cycling is the world’s leading chain lubrication test laboratory, and it is trusted by all major chain lube manufacturers. There are over 300,000 controlled test kilometers from a comprehensive database of the best lubricants on the market. To date, no lubricant has remotely demonstrated the treatment longevity of Rex Black Diamond, which outperformed competing lubricants in tests, even when tested with an astonishingly long lubrication interval of 1,000 km. POWER AND TORQUE WITH E-BIKES, LUBRICANT CHOICE MATTERS! In electric bikes, chains and chainrings are subjected to higher forces than usual. Small chainrings and sprocket sizes, low cadence, and high power are a combination that wears out the drivetrain quickly. By choosing the right chain lubricant, the lifespan of your chains can be increased up to six times when compared to average lubes on the market. Under load, the Black Diamond E’s nanoparticles form an extremely durable and low-friction surface layer on metal-to-metal contact surfaces, significantly improving the lubricating properties. In addition to low friction and low wear, Rex chain lubes’ ability to recover from temporary interruptions in lubrication caused by sand, water and dust is researched to be the best in its category. Even when subjected to contamination, Rex does not turn into an abrasive paste that quickly wears out chains. This is due to Rex’s extensive knowledge of dirt-repellent waxes and their additives. ENHANCED COMPOSITION SYNERGETIC ADVANCEMENTS WITH NANO TUNGSTEN We took the recipe for Black Diamond and made it even better for electric bikes in two ways: Nanotungsten (WS2) improves the pressure resistance of the lubricant and further reduces the level of friction. When used in combination with our proprietary Black Diamond nanoparticle technology, a synergistic effect is achieved. The use of both additives at their optimal concentration gives a result that is better than the sum of its parts. For best performance, both nano additives are blended into the lubricant in an ultrasonic process at our factory in Hartola, Finland. As an additional spice, we added Rex N-Kinetic™ hydrophobic polymers to the composition. They give Black Diamond E better anti-corrosion properties than our previous chain lubes, and improve performance in very cold conditions.

DIRT REPELLENT WITH THE BEST RACE SKI WAX TECHNOLOGY In addition to skiing, we at Rex are also passionate cyclists. This is the main reason why we developed the lube. We started playing with the idea “If Rex made a chain lubricant, what would it be like?”. That sounded so interesting we had to find out! The Rex Chain Lube recipe combines out-of-the-box thinking with the best raw materials used in high-end fluorinated ski waxes. Rex is well known for its world cup level fluorinated ski waxes and is an expert in paraffin wax-based applications with six decades’ worth of experience. Each batch of Rex Chain Lube is carefully hand-mixed at our factory in Hartola, Finland. ELASTIC FORMULA OPTIMIZED VISCOSITY FOR LONGEVITY The unique elastic formula of Rex Chain Lube ensures optimal attachment to the chain without adding friction. Rex Chain Lube has been tested in road racing motorcycles at up to 300km/h speeds with good results. When applying Rex Chain Lube, you will notice how the lube forms thin hair-like strings where the chain leaves the chainring or derailleur pulley. This happens before the lube penetrates into the chain, and it is normal behaviour. ULTRA LOW FRICTION DYNO TESTED AND OPTIMIZED FOR BEST LONGEVITY AND WATT SAVINGS Dyno-tested independently by two acknowledged laboratories on two continents: Friction Facts (USA) and Wheel Energy (Finland). In both tests the results were encouraging: In the Friction Facts tests, Rex lube was the 10th fastest out of 55 lubes ever tested, with 5.48 W average friction. Most of the more efficient lubes are either not chain lubes at all (olive oil, hard paraffin wax), or thin solvent-based lubes with much shorter reapplication intervals. Rex lube is the fastest solvent-free and non-vaporizing chain lube tested by Friction Facts. (tested 7/2015) In longevity tests done by Wheel Energy, Rex outperformed competing mineral oil and solvent-based lubricants with a significant margin.

DESIGNED FOR WINTER BETTER PROTECTION AGAINST SNOW, COLD AND ROAD SALT Based on the popular Rex Domestique chain lube, the new Rex Arctic is a wax and oil hybrid lube that is resistant to snow, frost and road salt. Its composition has been improved for winter conditions with Rex N-Kinetic hydrophobic polymers. The improved winter properties include even better water resistance and effective corrosion prevention. The viscosity of Rex Arctic is optimized for cold conditions, and it lubricates without congealing even in the hardest frosts. WAX BASED SOLVENT-FREE, NON-VAPORIZING, UNDILUTED Adding solvent or water to a chain lube is generally thought to be a great way to reduce manufacturing costs and give the manufacturer a better margin. At Rex, we think otherwise. Every drop you apply on the chain is 100% lubricant and not something that will evaporate into the air. Unlike with most chain lubes, there is no need to wait until the solvent evaporates before you can ride your bike. You can think of it as a concentrated chain lube. That’s why only a small amount of lubricant is needed to keep the chain smooth and silent. LONG LASTING AMPLE AND ECONOMICAL IN USE Rex Arctic shares the well-documented lubricating performance and longevity of Domestique, and is thus among the best in its class. Despite its small size, each bottle is enough for up to 30 lubrications. Independent laboratory tests in Finland and Australia have proven Rex’s top-class lubrication ability. Low friction and low chain wear go hand in hand, and using Rex will make chains and cassette sprockets last longer.
Rex Race Day Spray is a unique product for treating your chain and cassette by yourself, for extremely low friction and maximal dirt repellency. Rex is an expert in fluorocarbon coatings and we have decades worth of expertise in manufacturing products for cross-country race skiing. Now, we are the first in the world to bring the same technology into cycling. Together with our Domestique Chain Lube, Race Day Spray forms a lubrication solution with unmatched longevity and dirt repellency. The research and development for Race Day Spray was done together with the best athletes and world-known independent testing labs, to make sure the product meets Rex quality standards. Rex Race Day is manufactured at our factory in Hartola, Finland. INDEPENDENT LAB TESTED AND PARIS-ROUBAIX PROVEN. In tests conducted by Wheel Energy testing laboratories, Race Day Spray produced impressive results: Drivetrain noise and friction are lower from the beginning of application. (-1dB.) Drivetrain noise stayed -1dB lower during the 5h dyno test. A Race Day Spray-treated chain that had been ridden for 7 hours in “spring classics” weather, (dusty, wet gravel, asphalt), gained only 0,5 watts of friction when measured post-race and appeared completely clean! Chains that are treated with competing optimization solutions like UltraFast process, typically gain 2.07 W from pre-race to post-race, even in shorter races. ( As measured by Friction Facts in 2012 ) Compared to a chain that has lost its lubrication in race, the advantage when using Rex Race Day Spray is three extra watts in the finish line sprint. WITHOUT EVEN REMOVING THE CHAIN FROM YOUR BIKE. THE ONLY PRODUCT THAT YOU CAN ALSO APPLY ON CASSETTE. Until now, optimising your chain has required purchasing a pre-optimised expensive chain, which becomes a normal chain when the optimisation wears off. With Rex Race Day Spray, you can apply the optimization treatment yourself without even removing the chain from bike. Instead of optimizing only the chain, you can also treat the cassette for improved shifting and dirt repellency in extreme conditions. In addition, it is also economical: A single can of Race Day Spray gives you up to six chain treatments for a lower price than one readily optimized chain! For 2020. Race Day Spray has been upgraded with a more ample 85ml container, while the price remains the same. LAB TESTS VERIFY IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE. Fully cleaned chains were tested right after applying the lube, and then again after a six-hour race simulation with identical bikes and drivetrains. The test verifies what can also be heard and seen: A chain treated with Race Day Spray stays quiet, clean and efficient. After six hours of racing, there is 52% less drivetrain friction with Race Day Spray when compared to a chain that is lubed with Rex Domestique only. And even the Domestique lube is one the most efficient and longest-lasting lubes on the market! The longer you race and the worse the conditions are, the bigger the advantage is. No other chain coating or optimization solution can match the hydrophobic capabilities of Rex Race Day Spray!
Hot waxing is an increasingly popular method for lubricating bicycle chains. The solid wax does not collect dirt, keeping the entire transmission of the bike clean and repelling dirt more effectively than traditional chain lubes. BLACK DIAMOND HOT WAX combines Black Diamond’s proven effective additive technology with over 70 years of wax experience from Rex. By switching to hot waxing, bike cleaning becomes much easier, and drivetrain component wear is dramatically decreased in long-term use. Hot-waxed chains don’t stain and do not require powerful solvents for cleaning. Instead, they can be easily cleaned with hot water only. We transformed the already thoroughly tested and effective Black Diamond additive technology onto a solid Rex wax base. To ensure high manufacturing quality, we put all the Black Diamond additives into one black piece, which is hand-cast in our product development laboratory in Hartola. The black additive piece can be thought of as a bottle of Black Diamond chain lube in solid form! The eleven white Rex paraffin blocks, carefully selected for their wax mixture, are combined with the additive block to guarantee the best lubrication performance on the market. By melting all the pieces (11+1 blend) together, you get a wax mixture that works perfectly in all conditions. For an extremely durable mixture for even the longest rides and races, melt the black additive piece with four pieces of base wax (4+1 blend). The remaining seven blocks of wax can be used as a cleaning pre-treatment wax to keep the 4+1 blend clean and maintain its high performance for longer. With the two-stage wax treatment option in one package, you get everything you need for optimal chain lubrication.
Black Diamond Additive is an add-on for the black diamond hot wax chain lube. We transformed the already thoroughly tested and effective Black Diamond additive technology onto a solid Rex wax base. To ensure high manufacturing quality, we put all the Black Diamond additives into one black piece, which is hand-cast in our product development laboratory in Hartola. The black additive piece can be thought of as a bottle of Black Diamond chain lube in solid form! To make a more concentrated mixture add 4 white blocks to 1 black block for the longest-lasting, lowest friction bike lube in the world.
