Rated 5 out of 5 by JasonLeBlanc The best chain. period.
Tried this chain once, haven't used another chain since. That was 4 years ago. Shifts amazing in all conditions (dry or mud), light weight, smooth, and quiet. Also the bling factor is quite high and this chain is quite durable. Expensive at retail, but good deal from chain reaction !

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Dodgy weight claims
I'm not sure where CRC get the net weight of 228g because the claimed weight on the packaging 'says 241g only!'. It actually weighs 246g with the missing link which is only a few more grams than the SRAM PC1091 cost £20 less.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Not good
Put this chain on an Ibis Mojo sl. While nursing a broken hand, I rode about 60 miles before this chain broke. I am running a 2x10 so cross chaining isn't the problem. Most of the miles were on road (about 10 were offroad). Would not buy this product again. Switched to a Shimano xt chain and spent less while shifting improved. It's pretty but I don't like walking back home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous I've been riding with KMC chains or a number of years now without any problems. So this year I thought I'd treat myself to the 'bling' version. As with all my KMC chains this did not disappoint. Quiet and smooth with precise gear change. As a general rule I change my chains every 2K or so, but after just 1750 miles I felt my gold bullion was ready for the knackers yard. The colour was tarnished and the gear change just didn't have the zing of a new chain. I expected more for the money. I've now replaced it with a shiny silver KMC chain that I paid just £15 for and as with all KMC's I've used in the past, the £15'der is as quiet and precise as the £53'der. So, if you've the money and you want some 'bling' for a few months, go for gold, but in future I know where the best value lies....
