Our review

Reasonable results for the money, but definitely not the cleanest lube to use
Skip to view product specifications

We’ve had Fenwicks ‘All conditions’ and ‘Wet conditions’ lubes on the go since early spring now, and they’re okay but not outstanding. 100ml for £4.99 is a decent price, but you’re sure to waste a fair bit of it until you get used to the speed at which it splurges out.

That said, the All Conditions lube lasts well on road bikes for a lube of this viscosity. In recent wet conditions we found that we only needed to reapply it sparingly every 7 to 10 days when riding daily for best results.

On the mountain bike, we’ve been getting a few hours’ off-road riding before squeaking starts in properly filthy conditions with the ‘wet’ lube and about 50km mixed riding with the ‘All’, which is about average for a mid-price lube.

 Not needing to use too much means that a 100ml bottle should last you a good two to three months, depending on conditions and how much you ride.

All Conditions is a thinnish wet lube that should be applied to a clean chain to get the most out of it. It’s easy to apply and is relatively mess-free. 

Once you’ve worked it into the links and wiped off any excess it provides a smooth ride while helping to protect and increase your chain’s life.

You definitely need to heed the advice about wiping down with a cloth after lubing too, or you are sure to end up with messy mechs and black grime all over the place.
