No weakest link. SRAM'S Power Chain features the PowerLock connecting link — the only secure toolless attachment device for a sub 6mm chain in todays market. The PC 991 Cross Step version1 features a secondary riveting process that increases the push pin strength by over 25% compared to our standard riveting. It's a combination of strength, lighter weight and our legacy of smooth, positive and precise shifting that delivers true high performance. This is our strongest chain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nickmc29 Not bad so far.
Having bought a second hand DH bike with this chain on it I wasn't sure what to expect with it. Felt pretty good, linked up as you would expect a good chain to. Rode with it for about 2 months and then it snapped. I repaired it and rode for another 4-5 weeks and it snapped again... twice, in the same day. I lost a few full links so I had to buy a new one.
I'm not sure how old the chain was when I bought the bike so I can't say that's it's lifespan!
Bought the new chain and had it installed in about 5 minutes. Easy to install with the Powerlink and I have had no problems so far. See how it lasts now it's new.
Also at £17 it's not a bad deal!

Got this after I snapped my Shimano chain in a few months... Have been using this for 6 months and I do some racing, a lot of trail riding (all weather)... Works great and really like the quick link because it makes cleaning and lubing easy... I would buy this chain again

Rated 4 out of 5 by Xanders Great product, long lasting, OEM package
Great chain overall but mine arrived as OEM version (no fancy box).
Previously used boxed SRAM chains with included powerlink - no issues fitting it. Also used SRAM powerlink brought separately on Shimano chains - still no issues.
But I couldn't manage to fit powerlink from this package on the chain. It seems that a pin on a powerlink is a bit short. Hopefully, had some spare powerlinks from separate package - fitted without any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Solide et durable
Produit de base, mais il est toujours utile de partager son avis sur ce genre de petites choses indispensables.
Pour l'instant la mienne a une saison de DH et n'a pas bougée, elle est solide et fonctionne bien (je pèse 80kg donc elle en prend pour son grade quand j'accélère).
Elle vaut bien son prix.

Changed my Shimano for SRAM PC991 chain and cassette PG990.... what an immense improvement!! But, with adapting the length of the chain I demolished two shackles. Does anyone have a few shackles (new) available? My chain without those 2 shackles is just too short! (My mistake..... I know, I know).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Fantastic until it failed
Chain 11 month old, snapped on my under load this morning, and hence this review!
I was standing up pedalling to pull away, I ended up splat in the middle of the road in front of oncoming traffic.
I thought it would be the quick link that had failed, but it wasn't, just a regular link mid-chain (the chain was very well maintained). Of all the reasons to crash & burn this shouldn't be one of them, especially when the chain is less than a year old.
I have never had a chain snap on my before and don't want to again, I am battered and bruised and so is the bike. I would be more so but I was wearing my elbow guards (IXS SIgnature) which saved my elbows from damage - highly recommended!
Before today I would have given the chain 5stars, the quick link is just fantastic. But now I have lost my faith completely.....

I have a Giant trance 3, 2010/2011 model and are renewing most of the drive chain eg cassette , middle and large chain ring as I have worn out two chains on the STX set up. Would prefer to up grade to a better speck, eg. XT shaddow plus derailer on a 2x 10 speed setup or the equivilent in sram but have been told it would be an expensive way to do it. Am I doing the right thing in just renewing the worn out parts with the same setup, I do get a lot of chain slap
