With a variety of performance-enhancing technologies and strengthening features, this chain is one of the most durable on the market.
1/2" X 11/128"
Pin length 5.88mm
Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo compatible (Including all 10X MTB systems)
Half nickel plated
Non-Directional Design: assembly of this chain is independent of direction. It allows maximum compatibility on MTB or race bikes: this chain fits all.
Enhanced Durability: With unique SP (stretch-proof) treatment, the durability has been effectively enhanced by reducing the attrition between inner plates and pin. As a result, chain life has been significantly prolonged.
Pin Power: The unique KMC "Bulls-Eye" pin mushrooming technique provides 200kgf of average pin power for unsurpassed side plate retention.
X-Bridge: This is on the outer plate, configured with precisely articulated angles for quicker and smoother gear shifting and quieter riding. Lightweight shorter length pins length combine with high-grade materials to reduce weight. Tensile strength safety is assured with a minimum 1020kgf above ISO standards.
Tensile Strength: Safety, performance and peace of mind are assured, with minimum of 1020kgf above ISO standard.
XSP Treatment: Special proprietary XSP treatment is applied to both high alloy pins and plates to reduce the friction, thus, to enhance the chain life.
Lower Bridge: This lower bridge hastens the down gear shifting and yet mitigates the engaging impact between sprocket and chain.
Upper Bridge: The upper bridge forms a slant vault parallel to the tip of tooth movement. This vault shape makes the tooth and the chain engage much more precisely.

FOR DRY CONDITIONS - Cleans and lubricants as you ride, repels dust, dirt and moisture. Superior penetration, insuring that all parts of the chain are lubricated. It is cleaner than conventional lubes and has no greasy build up.
PTFE based lubricant, specifically developed and engineered for long distance bicycle rides in dry/wet conditions. Insures extremely smooth and quiet gear shifting. Designed for use on bicycle chains, derailleurs, cables and chain wheels.
Directions of use:
Clean drive-train with JOE’S BIO-DEGREASER. Rinse with water and let dry completely.
Apply one drop of JOE'S PTFE LUBE to each chain link (with aerosol apply generously) while slowly rotating the chain.
Let the Lube penetrate, and wipe all excess Lube with a rag.
Wipe chain after first ride.
