Australian publication CyclingTips.com’s David Rome publishes his favourite ten products of 2017. Although it’s not surprising to see, it is certainly a pleasure to see SMOOVE impressed him so much.
...”It might be too early to call this one, but after a couple months of use, I’m pretty impressed with this South African chain lube.
A new kid on the block compared to veteran chain lube Squirt – also from South Africa – Smoove is slowly growing with little more than word of mouth. And the fact that it’s disrupting a market where Squirt originated from should be telling.
I first crossed paths with the name when covering the Absa Cape Epic a few years back. At the time, a local mechanic told me it was his secret weapon and out-performed Squirt in trying conditions.
While I’ve yet to see any supporting lab data, I can attest to it doing exactly as its name suggests. My shifting has never been smoother, my drivetrain is muted, and the durability is extremely impressive. Add to that the dry, clean running with only a little build-up and it gets on this list...”

We know SMOOVE is an awesome lube. We wouldn't range it otherwise, but preaching the story and convincing riders to give it a go is a massive challenge. After all, how exciting can a chain lube be?!
SMOOVE is super smooth...really hard wearing...crisp and clean...yadda yadda yadda. Doesn't every lube brand tell the same story?
Well not strictly. A brand should focus on their strengths and avoid the weaknesses. Unless of course a lube doesn't have a weakness. But no chain lube can be perfect for everything. Right? Well SMOOVE make some mighty claims, stating it lasts for "hundreds of miles" between applications. It is really clean to the touch, enhances gear shifting and protects your drivetrain for the long haul. What's the downside?
Both BikeRadar.com and Road.cc released their reviews of SMOOVE Universal Chain Lubricant over the last two weeks and the results are fantastic. Turns out SMOOVE's claims are true. So if you want to try a GAME-CHANGING chain lube...well, LEARN MORE HERE.

We are so excited to announce that SMOOVE has decided to allow us at Cyclorise to represent them in the UK. Here's the press release...
"South Africa’s fastest growing chain lube brand comes to the UK with Cyclorise Ltd. In South Africa, SMOOVE commands a massive 60% share of the lube market and 50% of the top teams in the 2016 Cape Epic were using SMOOVE. The Cape Epic is renowned for destroying drivetrains, so what better testing ground.
Ruan Deyzel created SMOOVE specifically for this purpose, spending three years with 30 top riders creating a lubricant that can withstand harsh conditions and high mileage between applications. A single application of SMOOVE will last the entire stage-event without the need for mid-ride applications like other lubes. SMOOVE will drastically extend the life of a drivetrain, while ensuring clean and silent running for hundreds of miles.
Thomas Dibley of Cyclorise Ltd said “We were hunting high and low for a consumable brand that would help us take the business to the next level. We demand only the best performing products in any specific category and SMOOVE hits the nail on the head. The performance has bowled us and the ambassadors we have had testing it away and we love the company behind it. Ruan bleeds enthusiasm and passion for his product and cycling, we couldn’t be happier with this new partnership”.
While already established and dominant in South Africa, SMOOVE has just launched distribution in Australia, the USA and now in the UK.
Ruan Deyzel, owner of SMOOVE said “We are extremely pleased to announce that Cyclorise Ltd is the exclusive distributor for SMOOVE in the UK. We believe that SMOOVE will be a big hit in the UK market because of the products all weather and extreme durability capabilities. Cyclorise share the same energy and passion that we have for cycling and have full confidence that they will make SMOOVE a huge success!”
We recently took delivery of StemCAPtain which has been selling like hot potatoes...i'm not sure that's the correct phrase. But anyway, ever since posting the first pictures on Instagram, customers have been chomping at the bit. We have received a few questions in regards fitting a StemCAPtain clock or thermometer.
Well, it really couldn't be easier. I even made a video to you show you. Check that out below or read these simple steps:
When we launched Cyclorise, we always new we wanted to be different. Not just for the sake of being different, but because we wanted products that didn't conform to what we have been trained to expect from a product.
Products should work without compromise. OK, so sometimes it's impossible not to compromise somewhere, especially when it comes to multi-tools. We'd all love a pro-workshop following us around in a converted Ford F-350 Superduty, but that is just darn right impractical. So we need a tool that will do as many jobs as is practically possible while being compact, robust and customisable depending on the needs of each individual rider.
So Altum Designs of London launched a Kickstarter campaign to develop a tool (MTS) and tool roll system (MTR) to achieve just that. A steel hand tool with magnetic bits, magnetic tyre levers and enough strength to be brutal if needed while having an ergonomic shape to get deep into nooks and crannies. The MTS tool is £24.99 while the MTS & MTR System includes a feature-packed tool roll for £39.99.
We have just placed our first order and will be taking pre-sales over the weekend. Click on the banner below to see their campaign details on Kickstarter, or click HERE to view the range on Cyclorise.com.
