Product Details

CeramicSpeed uses chains from high-end brands to which an optimisation treatment is applied. The CeramicSpeed UFO Chains go through a multi-step process, which involves polishing, cleaning, and application of two layers of treatment to achieve the most efficient chain possible. The UltraFast Optimization process is not highly technical, but it is very time consuming. The wax blend used in the optimisation of the ultra-fast chains was discovered through intensive testing in order to find the fastest base. Thereafter, the base was tweaked to achieve the lowest friction levels on the test equipment. After additional testing and multiple ratios of additives-to-base, the most efficient formula of optimisation was identified. CeramicSpeed started from the initial formula of the UltraFast Optimization process and incorporated a couple of advancements on top of the traditional treatment, for improved results. The CeramicSpeed UFO Chain is a racing chain, developed with the purpose of delivering the unrivalled performance and will perform optimal for about 600 km/370 miles or potentially more under clean and dry conditions. After this, the watts saved start to decrease nevertheless, your used chain will still feature traces of optimisation and perform better than a regular chain. The maintenance and oiling of the used chain with a wax based lube with Teflon®, will prolong the life of your chain, saving less watts than optimised, still being above the level of a new standard chain. CeramicSpeed recommends the use of Squirt lube for the maintenance interventions.

The optimisation of a CeramicSpeed UFO chain is a multi-step process starting with a polishing method of the link's sliding surfaces that removes friction-producing surface like roughness and manufacturing imperfections. The chain is followed by a cleaning routine to fully remove the inefficient factory lube and friction-producing contaminants introduced during the manufacturing process. The next steps require the infusion of the chain at optimal temperatures with the optimisation blend. For the final step, Teflon® powder is applied to the chain. The entire process allows the sliding surfaces of an ultra-fast CeramicSpeed UFO Chain to have distinct lubricating layers working together as a system for the ultimate chain efficiency available. CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chains can save you between 2–5 watts on a distance of 600 km/370 miles. After this, you can apply the CeramicSpeed UFO Drip to reboost your racing chain. After the 600 km, you are still left with a highly performant chain, superior to a standard chain. When added to the full CeramicSpeed component upgrade (the OSPW System, Bottom Bracket and Wheel Kit), chain optimisation can take the total saving to between 10-16 watts. When you need the extra advantage to make a real difference at the finish line, the CeramicSpeed UFO Racing Chain is the way to go.

Notes UFO treatment is not optimised for wet and muddy conditions, which might cause corrosion on the chain.
