A little bit about Zero Friction Cycling

Zero Friction Cycling is the WORLDS LEADING independent lubricant and chain testing facility, and uses the information from testing to stock the genuine best products only. ZFC is contracted by many of the worlds largest manufacturers in the lubricant space to test and benchmark lubricants, and if they test extremely well, a full detail review is completed and ZFC stocks and recommends products. If it doesn’t test well, manufacturer keeps working on it and test results remain private. On top of that ZFC tests many lubricants on its own volition to check lofty claims vs reality.
