CeramicSpeed updates formula on UFO Racing Chains after Friction Facts acquisition

Published February 8, 2017

HOLSTEBRO, Denmark (BRAIN) — CeramicSpeed has improved the lube formula on its UFO Racing Chains, following the Danish company's purchase of Friction Facts last year. The new formula is said to be lower friction and last longer.

CeramicSpeed acquired Ultra Fast Optimization Racing chains in 2015, moving the company's production base from the U.S. The CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chains start with either Shimano Dura-Ace HG901 11 speed chains or KMC SL 11 speed or 10 speed chains. The stock chains are cleaned and treated with CeramicSpeed's wax-based lube.

The new treatment is said to provide 15 percent less friction and last at least 370 miles before significant efficiency loss. The chains will continue to be delivered with a bottle of Squirt lube for maintenance use after the 370 miles have been surpassed. Retail pricing starts at $140 per chain.
