SRAM Powerlink Connector

Every chain is only as strong as its weakest link - traditionally, the connecting link. In contrast, the PowerLink™ connection is just as strong and durable as every other link in the chain. It can be opened and closed as may times as you want without using any tools.

SRAM Powerlink Connector Features:

  • PowerLink means no weak links.
  • NB: 2 pieces (2 parts of one chain link) and (3 parts of one chain link)
  • IMPORTANT: The 7,8,and 9 speed links have 2 sides and 1 spacer. 10sp & 11sp Links are POWERLOCK, they fit together but then are not designed to come apart again.

Buy SRAM Powerlink Connectors from Chain Reaction Cycles, the World’s Largest Online Bike Store.

  • Colour: Grey, Gold, Silver
  • Option: 7 Speed - 3 Pack, 9 Speed - 3 Pack, 8 Speed - 3 Pack
  • Speed: 7 Speed, 9 Speed, 8 Speed

Rated 3 out of 5 by Good but needs to be reusable Does the job of holding the chain together but isn't reusable 14 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Makes fixing a chain or putting a new one on easy. that's why I always buy Sram chains even every thing else is shimano. 13 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice spares that got m out of a bust chain uphil. These go on very easily but make sure they are the right type for your chain. I have never had a new link fail. Tricky to get off though (which is good?) if you get it wrong, try a snipe nose pair of pliers. 12 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by always have one I always have one of these in my pack just incase my chain snaps its easier to get me back down the mountain 12 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rule of Kiss Fantastic idea. Would have got 5 stars hands down without a doubt, apart from one little problem. I have never met anybody who can open the the 10 SPEED VERSION with there bare hands. Special tool job for me every time. Keep It Simple Stupid. Who ever came up with this idea must be on easy street. 11 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Замок SRAM для цепи Shimano Долго думал стоит ли ставить его, т.к. мнения противоречивы. Недавно поставил на цепь Shimano (9 скоростей) проехал километров 200 пока всё нормально. Смущало что он закрывается без малейшего усилия, думал будет расстёгиваться, но пока всё нормально. В мастерской мне говорили что подобные замки портят звёзды, посмотрим в конце сезона:) 11 August 2014

Yes; even though Shimano only suggest the use of their own Chain pins with their chains, they are also compatible with the SRAM Powerlink technology.

Answer: 
Probably. Have never tried it that way round but have fitted 9 speed shimano links to a 10 speed sram chain and it was fine for months. Not just sitting in the shed either mind, lasted as long as the rest of the chain with no issues. Hope this helps.

These SRAM powerlinks work great with Shimano chains, but for no-hassle connections with your KMC chain I would choose KMC's own connector, they're called quicklinks.

You can use one of these to join the 2 pieces of chain together again. Allowing you to break your chain at a different length.

Answer: 
If you have the spare links you removed when you shortened your chain then you can use 2 pairs of power links to put some of the spare links into the chain. You Cannot add several powerlinks in a row.

I made the same mistake as you and had to reinsert a section of chain, I subsequently broke my chain in a different place, I've been riding with 3 power links in my chain for over a year with no issues.

The power links are a bit difficult to fit, you'll need a link tool or at least a point nosed pliers.

Answer: 
I actually run my chain with two of these, not because I made it too short but because I broke it twice.. I've been using it for several months and it's ok (though too short: I''m just waiting for the whole drive system to wear out and replace it).
I think these guys are pretty sturdy and reliable, but it really depends on how you use your bike and how many of these you'll end up using: at the end of the day, they're way thinner than the original thing.

Answer: 
Technically you could use these to lengthen a chain, but it would be better to get a new chain, especially if your chain is slightly old, it will have stretched, increasing the likelihood of miss shifting a poor alignment where the new links are.

Answer: 
SRAM Powerlinks and Shimano chains are not listed as cross-compatible. The Shimano chains suggest using official Shimano pin connectors only. The KMC Connector (linked below) is compatible with KMC, SRAM, Campagnolo and Shimano 11sp chains.

Answer: 
Yes, you can put an SRAM link on a Clarks Chain (or vice versa), I've done it, and it worked fine, as long as the link and chain are both for the same speed bike. (i.e. both 10 speed or both 9 speed, etc).
