We road race an X30, so durability is number one.

We use “Extron Composite” sprockets.  Or Horstmans or whatever if we don’t have the “plastic” ones.  They wear well and don’t seem to get hot.  Also “RK Blue O-Ring” chain.  Same deal, holds the lub. really well.  Again with road racing, the chain lub has to last a 30 minute race.  So we use “Xeramic Ceramic Synthetic Chain Spray”.  After 30 minutes it’s still nice and wet.

I suppose whatever is the best stuff you can get.  We clean the chains and sprockets each day of an event with WD40 and a rag, then re-lub.  Messy, but it works for us.
