Rated 2 out of 5 by La cadena viene en una bolsita de plástico, no en su caja original con instrucciones ni el bulón de montaje. La cadena viene en una bolsita de plástico, no en su caja original con instrucciones ni el bulón de montaje. 20 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good switching Replaced the HG40 version of this chain on my 7 speed MTB. Good, smooth gearing. But break after 400 miles when switching to bigger gear. And one more speare pin in the box. 30 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Можно расчитывать на долгую службу не слишком агрессивной поездкой вытянул эту цепь до 0.75 мм за 2160 км. Хорошее переключение. В целом - Для 8-ми скоростной цепи большего и не надо! 28 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Крепкая цепь До растяжения 0,5 ходит ~1500км. Для сравнения - HG50 ходит ~1100км. Из всей линейки 8-скоростных цепей самая "твёрдая". 10 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good product for the price Good quality, fast delivery, the only thing I can say is wow! 10 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth Chain Not much to say about a chain. Runs smoothly on my HG cassette. I purchased this one mostly because of the corrosion treatment on the plates - I use melted paraffin wax as a treatment and I am not as regular as I should be with it. Will see how the treatment holds out. 22 March 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Did not last any longer than an HG40 chain, disappointed. Replaced the HG40 version of this chain on my 7 speed MTB, thinking the HG70 would get more mileage before changing, but I was wrong. Chain stretch reached 0.75% after only 750 miles, changed it after 1000 miles, when the 1% stretch was almost reached. I expected to get at least 3k miles, so disappointed. Switching to KMC to see how they compare. I keep the chain and lubricate each week, as I use the bike daily. 26 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dependable chain if fitted with a degree of care. I've used about half a dozen of these chains, getting about 5000 - 6000 km out of each, but possibly replacing too early ( I use a chain wear indicating tool. Maybe direct chain length measurement would extend the indicated life. ) But I know I'm keeping my chainwheels and sprockets in good condition by regular chain replacement. I clean ( on-bike cleaning tool ) and lube chain ( Finish Line Dry ) about every 500 km and ride in weather that happems to be fine most of the time. I feel very confident when putting power through this chain ( as in e.g. hammering out of the saddle ) but would probably say that you need to be a careful type of mechanic when fitting this chain as it relies on Shimano's one-time only use press-through pin ( special supplied pin only to be used - best to get a spare or two for possible unexpected chain removal times ). Make sure after pressing in the pin ( chain tool needed ), that both ends of the pin protrudes equally through the chain side plates. Also free up the associated link if it goes tight. As always, carefully follow the included Shimano instructions. 01 November 2012

Answer: 
Yes; this chain should be ok to replace an early dura-ace chain (the earlier Shimano HyperGlide [HG] MTB and Road system chains ran the same chain size).
