X-Tools Chain Wear Indicator Tool

The X-Tools chain wear indicator will determine if your chain needs to be replaced. Over a period of time every chain will stretch resulting in poor shifting and the high possibility of the chain snapping. The industry standard for chain replacement is when the chain wear is between 0.75% and 1.0%. Simply place one end into a link on your chain and if the 0.75% side fits in your chain will soon need replacing, if the 1.0% side fits in replace your chain immediately.

X-Tools Chain Wear Indicator Tool Features:

  • Compatible with all chains
  • Peace of mind on long rides or competitions

Rated 4 out of 5 by costa poco e fao il suo lavoro Non si ha bisogno di un calibro per tenere sotto controllo la catena. Costa poco e fa il suo lavoro 15 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Просто хороший инструмент. Хороший и качественный индикатор износа, для моей деревни ещё и дешёвый. 14 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cheap and efficient This very simple bit of kit does what it is supposed to, no matter how cheap the finish seems. I always feel that it needs to be more complicated, or at least sturdier looking, but as all it does is measure it is not a problem. Because it is so simple I needed to make sure I did it correctly. Basically proves how stupid I am. As I am not an expert, perhaps the more expensive ones will do a better job, I don't understand how though. 12 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Must-have piece of kit. I can't believe I went so long without one - so simple, but is definitely a must-have item. 11 August 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Effective tool Simple piece of kit, does it's job well, well made with clear markings - very happy with this tool. 08 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Хороший дешевый индикатор Хороший дешевый индикатор. Этим все сказано. Возможно ParkTool будет точнее за счет большего плеча. По замерам штангенциркулем, вроде в этот индикатор заложен запас по износу, т.е. он показывает износ чуть раньше, чем надо. Но это только плюс - меньше шансов убить звезды. К тому же от частого использования наверняка чуть подызносится. Можно брать его или аналогичный ParkTool (им тоже пользовался). 06 August 2014

Answer: 
All current chains are produced with the same pitch (distance between the rollers) of 1/2". This tool measures the gap to indicate chain stretch/ roller wear so can be used with all these chains, regardless of their physical width.

Answer: 
½" links are ½" links - the difference between 7/8/9/10/11 speed chains is the width. Since 'stretch' is the length, the tool works... However the maximum permissible stretch is different between the different chain speeds.

Answer: 
Yes, is for all speed. 9spd and 10spd are the same length.
The difference is that the 10spd is narrower.
