GO Chain Wax is a UNIQUE, emulsion chain lubricant ideally suited to all karting applications. It lubricates better, stays on the chain longer than other dry lubes, and keeps the chain cleaner.

It is a wax based, solvent-free, long-lasting dry lube for high revving kart chains. Produced for GO under license by the world's leading wax manufacturer, it is blended under specially controlled conditions from a number of specially selected waxes, extreme pressure additives and dry lubricants.

Image A significant benefit is that GO is 100% biodegradable within a 40-50 day period. A product is regarded as “readily biodegradable” when in a 28 day test period it biodegrades by between 40 and 60% - GO achieved 85.67%! We don’t believe there is any other product on the market that can claim this. Together with the fact that there are no solvents of any kind in the lube, GO is truly in a class of its own as regards protecting the environment.


Three reasons:

  • It is the only wax/water emulsion lube available on the market.

  • Being an emulsion makes it possible to get a much higher wax content (+-40% - most other dry lubes have a maximum of 10-25%) per volume. Consequently, much more wax is applied to the chain.

  • Water also evaporates significantly slower than solvents therefore more wax is carried into the openings, and then, once dry, it repels water and dirt more effectively.

Its unique properties give it the ideal viscosity for:

  • penetrating all areas of the chain

  • extended operating life

  • reducing dirt build up on chain.

  • reducing fling off (meaning less dirt build up and cleaning on areas around the chain and sprockets - we all know what a pain it is cleaning around the sprockets and frame, never mind the greasy stains on your overalls and helmet)


GO's formulation ensures it sticks to the chain longer and extends lubrication intervals compared to other lubes on the market.

It's composition significantly reduces dirt build-up on the chain; therefore no grinding paste will form, which will reduce friction, improve performance and extend chain life (up to double the distance). With the increased lubrication properties and reduced dirt build up, GO also reduces the chances of chain seizure and subsequent chain chuck.

Another important, and cost saving, advantage for karting is that the chain lube does not fling into the clutch drum (where exposed) as is the case with other products, thereby preventing clutch slip and loss of performance.

Tests have also shown it to last longer than conventional wax chain lubes in wet driving. The multiple wax layers reject water during wet weather driving with no effect on the function of the lube.

The formulation process gives it a unique, smooth texture making it quick and simple to apply. As GO is much cleaner than conventional lubes it is significantly cleaner to apply; any spillage can simply be wiped away with a dry cloth. There is less wastage as the lube is applied directly to the chain - no high pressure aerosol cans that spray it all over the place! No separation will take place under normal storage conditions and no clogging of the nozzle will occur.

Once GO has been properly applied, no degreasing is ever required (or recommended) again. Continuous applications can be done without having to clean the chain. Excess wax that is expelled by the chain does not attract dirt, hardens slightly and falls off during driving. At most, in extreme dirt conditions, cleaning with a dry brush is adequate. Is that not a great relief? Cleaning chains has to be one of the biggest pains around!

As GO contains no solvents, there is also absolutely no damage to, or premature degradation, of the O rings.

PS: While GO is a premium product and is priced accordingly, when you consider that you get a lot more wax on your chain compared to other products, your chain and clutch will last longer and perform better, in reality it offers exceptional (dare we say unbeatable) value for money!
