Shimano CN-HG601-11 Quick-Link chain - Perfect for 105 or SLX

The Shimano CN-HG601 11-speed Quick-Link chain is mounted with a master link, not with a chain pin like an earlier version. It is the perfect choice for 105 and SLX groupsets and may also be used with E-Bikes. The durability of the super slim chain is no less than that of 10-speed chains. As it was developed in conjunction with other shifting components, it ensures optimum power transfer in the 1-speed, 2-speed or 3-speed system. The friction-minimising SIL-TEC coating is used on the inner flaps.

Guidelines for Replacing E-bike Components:

Before you replace components on your e-bike, please read through the guidelines for component replacement for CE-marked E-bikes/pedelecs with pedal assistance.

SIL-TEC is Shimano's extremely low friction surface treatment. SIL-TEC is a superior, advanced coating process that improves system performance by using embedded fluorine particles. SIL-TEC products run smoother and show less wear under all conditions.

The CN-HG601-11 chain has an asymmetrical design. This means the running direction must be observed during installation. The specially-shaped tabs optimise engagement on the sprocket and result in even smoother shifting, even under load. To save weight, this chain has recesses on the inner link plates. The side with the marking is the outside.

bought for 21 euros, it is the best price/performance ratio you can get given the current market lack of stock and price increase in steel. The chain needs no review, it is the best among the 105/ slx level chains for the money.

I have bought like 4 of these chains. Works good. Lasts about 1000 km. I think a bit overpriced though.
