The newest 1071 chain features more heavily chamfered outer plates for improved shifting and quieter running. The chrome hardened pin construction provides longer chain life.
HollowPin construction: strong and light weights
PowerLock connecting link
HollowPin: We employ HollowPin™ construction on all SRAM top of the line PowerChains. HP yields plate retention strength, front and rear shifting efficiency, and low weight benchmarks unreachable in solid pin chain applications.
PowerLock: SRAM chain engineers developed PowerLock as a tool free, sure and consistent way to connect our 10 speed chains. While PL does not require special tools for install, the especially tight tolerances of 10 Speed drive trains mandated that each PowerLock is good for a one-time application only.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stevie73 Broke after 10 months of biking
Had this chain for 10 months and I only ride MTB every few weeks and it's worn out. Snapped when cranking the pedals at the weekend. Not worth the money in my opinion.

Excellent Road chain. Good quality as always from SRAM.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous stretches and breaks
I've had 2: the first stretched to 1% within about 3-4 months and also broke once while riding. The second has now broken twice (lol it now has 3 Powerlocks on it, from 2 breaks and the initial join).
I ride normal XC a couple of times a week, I'm not a particularly heavy or agressive rider. My chains are well maintained, and apart from the last few days conditions have been mostly dry.
Sorry, but gotta speak as I find! Perhaps they're good for roadies, but not for off road.
