Shimano Hypospitt Oil Review

by Levi Bloom

shimano hypospitt

This is a light oil from Shimano, and it comes in a neat needle applicator for precise applications.

Pros: The small tube and needle applicator make this great for tight situations. I got this 2.5oz tube for 99 cents, so that's a great deal.

I have used this oil successfully on brake and derailleur cables, as well as on spoke nipples before wheel truing.

Cons: It takes a long time to squeeze out a large quantity of lube.

The Final Word

I have been happy with this oil, especially at the discounted price. I doubt I would use it for chain lube, but it's great for cables and other small parts, so get a tube to have around.
