Easily worth the price!
I have been a chain waxer for about 3 years so I recognize the benefits in terms of a quiet drivetrain, a faster drivetrain and dramatically decreased component wear. However, to me the worst part is getting a new chain clean so the option of buying a pre-waxed chain from Silca seemed like the obvious smart play as once it is cleaned, waxing is really pretty easy. Easily worth the price difference, especially when you consider how long a waxed chain will typically last. If you want to get into waxing and place just about any value on your own time, this is the way to go!
