YYF Dark Matter lube experiences

(Spinworthy Glen) #1

I’m interested in getting some of this but I have a couple of questions about it.

Is it superior in any way to regular thin lube products? What is special about it?

Does it help keep the bearing quieter than other lines on the market?


Some info here but probably better in a dedicated topic


My understanding of what Dark Matter is, is based on my observetions, so I can’t say it’s definitive.

I believe Dark Matter is a dry lube that uses a liquid; which I’m pretty sure is isopropyl, to deliver and distribute the dry lubricant particles. I’ve used the word “suspension” before, but the particles settle requiring you to shake the bottle, so it’s probably more accurate to say it’s a mixture?

It’s my understanding that dry lubes are more performance enhancing than quieting and protective. In general you’ll find better performance, longer spin and zero response, but it won’t quiet the bearing as much as an oil.

I feel it does still quiet the bearing over running them dry.

I prefer dry lubes, and Dark Matter makes it so much easier to apply!


No, suspension works perfectly fine as a definition. A suspension is a mixture in which particles will eventually settle.

Thanks a lot for your help guys, I think I’ll prbably bjust stick to my Onedrop lube.


OK, but Dark Matter is pretty amazing in my book!
