Imagine trying to paint a wall with a paint-soaked cloth, versus a paint roller. No points for guessing which one’s more effective, right? The paint-roller perfectly holds and applies the paint in an even, perfect coat, without spilling any onto the floor or without getting your hands dirty.

Let’s flip the scenario a bit… imagine doing the same while applying oil to your bike chain.

The GREEN DISC offers an easier, faster, more efficient, and less wasteful method of lubricating your bike’s chains in a matter of seconds.

Unlike using an oil-soaked rag, your hands, or a squeeze bottle, the GREEN DISC uses a freely rotating lubricator wheel to evenly and efficiently coat your chain with a uniform coat of lubricant, without spilling any oil on the floor, and without getting your hands or clothes dirty.

The GREEN DISC builds on its previous iteration, the LUBRI DISC, which went on to win multiple awards including the German Design Award. The GREEN DISC holds as much as 25% of more oil than its predecessor, and is entirely biodegradable, including its plastic housing, lubricator wheel, as well as the lubricant inside.

Applying the lubricant means just holding the roller against a gently rotating chain.

A GREEN DISC can lubricate a chain up to 10 times before needing to be replenished with lubricant – and just the way a foam paint roller efficiently uses paint without any wastage, the GREEN DISC does the job without oil dropping to the floor or getting on your hands and clothes.

Once done, the disc fits right into its air-tight metal box which you can slip right into your pocket, storing it for another day. Refilling the GREEN DISC from time to time is as simple as popping the lid off, adding a little oil to the lubricator wheel, and clicking the housing together.

Using an oil-carrying roller, in hindsight, sounds like an idea we should have had a long time ago. It’s more effective, less messy, and cheaper in the long run, given that you don’t waste a single drop of oil in the process.

Besides, the GREEN DISC is biodegradable, right down to the BIO CHAIN LUBE, a natural lubricant that comes along with each GREEN DISC (although you can use any common chain oil with the disc).

Go ahead. Your bike, hands, and white tee shirts will thank you!
