LUBRI DISC is an incredible tool for the basic care of your bike chain. Smart, small and always with you – whether on the bike tour or in your commuter bag. Fillable & refillable with the chain oil of your choice. Leak-proof and easy to handle. It just takes seconds and your bike is ready for the next trip. Without dirty fingers!
CHAIN MAINTENANCE HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER.
NOW LET IT ROLL.
Simply hold the LUBRI DISC between your fingers, press it slightly onto your chain and let your crank rotate backwards. Everything else happens automatically. Two to three turns of the crank – that´s it.
First the inside of the chain, then the outside – that's it.
LUBRI DISC´s semi-soft lubricator wheel adapts perfectly to the shape of the chain – surrounds it – and lets the oil penetrate between the plates and over the rollers up to the pins. It stores any type of low to medium viscosity chain oils in its microporous and fluid-conducting body. Once filled, its capacity is sufficient to lube your bike chain up to ten times, before you just refill a little oil.
THE MAGIC IS INSIDE...
TECH FACTS: Works with all bicycle chains /// refillable /// unlimited life span /// dimensions: approx. 65x20mm (2.5x0.75 inch) /// weight: 40gram (1.4oz) /// works with all common low to medium viscosity oils. Not suitable for waxes and solvent-based lubricants. /// interchangeable lubricator disc, offered as individual part /// When used with biodegradable chain oil, the lubricator disc can easily be disposed – it is biodegradable!
What happens to your chain oil?
In short: It reaches directly into the ground and the groundwater. The same applies to the lots of chain oils with microplastic additives such as PTFE. (Or molybdenum disulphide or graphite...) All these substances get from your chain into the ground!
LUBRI DISC & FLECTR BIO CHAIN LUBE – THE ECO POWER PACK.
Ride green with FLECTR BIO CHAIN LUBE. This organic chain oil not only cares for your chain, but also protects the environment. It is produced with basic components based on plants and degradable additives. Environmentally friendly and easily biodegradable without missing excellent wear protection. FLECTR BIO CHAIN LUBE has an extremely good adhesive power and guarantees a low-noise and smooth running of your chain.
The refill is extremely simple. Both case shells close magnetically and can be opened easily.
DON´T WASTE OIL – FOR YOU AND YOUR ENVIRONMENT.
With FLECTR LUBRI DISC you save up to 90% oil, as it only releases the amount of lubricant your bike chain really needs. No oil flows into the rag, no oil splashes around. Not on the floor, not on the brakes or your bike frame. If (after many uses) the inner lubricator wheel has to be replaced – no problem: This part can be changed without having to buy a completely new LUBRI DISC. Together with our BIODEGRADABLE CHAIN LUBE – you can dispose the lubricator wheel without worries, because it is biodegradable.
LUBRI DISC works perfectly with any type of common chain oil – so you can use your oil, or switch to a really eco-friendly system with our FLECTR BIO CHAIN LUBE. After the campaign has ended, we will ask you for all details in a survey together with your shipping address.

RETAILERS ARE WELCOME. Just contact us and support the campaign. So you will be the first to offer LUBRI DISC in your shop!
When you hear that your chain requires care, it's actually too late! On the road with a dry chain, steel on steel causes unnecessary wear. And as the lubricating film decreases, quite a lot of performance also gets lost.
A rule of thumb says that an unmaintained drive train eats up to 10% of power. So it becomes clear that chain care not only protects the bike, but also significantly increases your riding pleasure.
About the LUBRI DISC design.
Technically FLECTR LUBRI DISC is one of a kind: Its special disc design ensures that the inner lubricator wheel rotates under slight pressure on the bike chain and delivers the oil reliably and evenly to your chain. No oil splashes around, no oil leaks when you carry the LUBRI DISC in your pocket. Move it, shake it – nothing will happen.
For ease of use, LUBRI DISC has finger moulds for a secure grip. You can stick the LUBRI DISC to any metal surface in your workshop simply magnetically – so it's available whenever you need it.

Status of this project.
In general FLECTR LUBRI DISC is thoroughly developed and tested for several month. All products we show in this campaign are already real working products from a pre-production done with 3D prototyping. (watch video)
With your help we want to make FLECTR LUBRI DISC a viable and affordable product for cyclists around the world. That is why we need your support in financing a first series with all the costs for an initial production of custom materials and the – exorbitantly high – tooling costs. And, of course, the dispatch of your pledges.
