    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    • As dirt sticks to white lightning, a small portion sloughs off taking the dirt with it and providing self-cleaning action for all your bike parts
    • Easy to apply--just pour on, wipe off excess and let dry; re-apply as necessary; 8-ounce bottle is great for multiple applications at shop or home
    • Use it on chains, cables, cleats and all pivot points
    • Regular use results in quicker shifting, lower friction and less wear on your bike's moving parts

    by fromIt's terrible Don't bother. Other lubes are superior. Old ideas and technology. I found Dumonde Tech to be the best. I have used many others to come to that conclusion.

    by fromNOT the best for wet or road I would not recommend this product for either wet conditions or typical road riding. I used tri flow before clean ride and only switched because I thought I needed a heavier duty winter lubricant. Clean ride accomplished the opposite of its name; it built up over time as I applied it, collected dirt and started to leave a thick crud on my derailleur. Worst in my opinion is my chain became tacky and I could actually feel the added resistance in my ride. Maybe this stuff is good in dry, dirty or dusty conditions, but I say go for lighter, wet lubricants all-year like tri flow or prolink. I've gone back to tri flow, felt an immediate improvement (after using some pretty heavy duty degreaser to get the wax off).

    by fromBest overall lube I have biked for decades and found white lighting the best overall lube on the market for dry conditions. I love the fact that the chain is clean to the touch and the you don't have to clean dirty lube to add more white lighting.

    by fromBest bike lube I ever used This is the only bike lube I use now. As long as you do not put on excessive amount that it starts to build up, the lube is self-cleaning. When the dirt builds up, the bits of wax in the lube flakes off and you are left with a clean chain. My only complaint is that its a bit thin and the opening on the bottle is a little too big so that when you turn the bottle upside down to apply the lube, a stream of it shoots out wasting and getting the ground all waxy. As it gets hotter, more it shoots out.

    by fromBest lubricant I heard about White Lightning from a mountain biker. I tried it out and it is fantastic! I never get grease marks on my legs anymore. The lube works really good.

    by fromField tested in South Africa Field tested White Lightning on singletrack, rural bike commuting, and road riding for two years in dry, hot and cold (highveld) conditions in rural South Africa. If I could only have one kind of lube available, White Lightning would be it. Kept my drivetrain operable, even when the rest of the rig failed spectacularly. My only suggestion would be to wipe it down.

    by fromClean Ride, I love You! I am reviewing the Clean Ride lube. I want to share my opinions of White Lightning Clean Ride. I am a multi discipline competitive bike racer. I have used White Lightning products for fifteen years and really like the smooth new formula of Clean Ride. The wax integrates into the lube very smoothly. I use Clean Ride on my time trial bike, mountain bike, road bike, and cross bike. I like the clean application and thinner formula. The wax coats the chain evenly. I lube my chain during rides by carrying a 2oz bottle and usually re lube on the mid point of a three hour ride. I am in the middle of Cross season and have discovered that Clean Ride keeps my chain and drive train clean, even when the conditions are wet, very muddy and sandy. I Love this lube and have recommended this to our racing team and they use it religiously. Several of the veteran Elite racers have commented on the versatility of Clean Ride. Keep up the good work White Lightning!!
