Just for argument's sake.... (and I know this will get everyone worked into a lather, but.... )
So, if low-temp grease is all that will work in cold temps, then what is the deal with all automobiles out there using "standard" viscosity grease and not blowing up/breaking in cold weather (at least, not due to lube issues...)? I certainly agree that low-temp grease might be better optimized for cold weather, but it's not like standard grease stops lubricating when it gets cold. And especially when talking about lubing things like suspension pivots and spindles on our sleds, "flow" isn't really an issue like it is with tight tolerance, high speed items like wheel bearings....
Again - I'm not saying low-temp grease doesn't work. But just for the record, I've always used standard automotive weight grease in my sleds for the past 25-30 years, and I've never had a part fail due to lack of lubrication. Take it for what it's worth...
