One of the annual traditions of Cyclocross Magazine is reflecting back on a year filled with reviewing products and award those that struck us as the best of the best in the realms of cyclocross, gravel and cycling gear. Over the course of the next few weeks, we will be releasing all of the awards one day at a time. Be sure to keep checking back to see what products are most worth your hard-earned dollars. Issue 28 also has the Editors’ Awards and the Readers’ Choice awards, so be sure to order your backcopy today, which is also available on Uberflip, in the App Store on iTunes, and on Google Play for Android.

As we continue to unveil our 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards, today we’ll reveal the behind-the-scenes favorite products of the work bench. Perhaps our Readers’ Favorite Lube is not a flashy component well-displayed around a cyclocross course, but it is the oft-unrecognized hero that keeps the drivetrain running well.

For 2015, Cyclocross Magazine voters overwhelmingly choose ProGold as their favorite lubrication for their cyclocross bike. Katie Compton had become a ProGold-sponsored rider last year, and certainly many readers must have felt that if it works for KFC, it works for them.

ProGold has been a friend of the cyclocross community for years, even helping out those with the muddiest of bikes. For riders who are unlucky enough to escape the harshest conditions of cyclocross, ProGold has its standard Prolike chain lube, but for the rougher conditions, the company also offers their Xtreme chain lube.
