Finish Line's Ceramic Wet Lube is designed for wetter conditions. It's rather thin, which helps it seep into your chain's nooks and crannies, but the downside is that it’s great at lubing the ﬂoor as well.
It needs a good shake before using, otherwise the ‘nano platelets’ of the extra-slippy boron nitride ceramic will stay settled in the bottom of the bottle. Despite the fancy ingredients, this lube is very good value. We did seem to go through it quicker than other lubes though.
Finish Line say repeated use builds up a protective layer, but while it lasts well and stays smooth, it does turn the chain a bit black, which may upset mechanical prima donnas.
