- super narrow HG 10-speed chain for all Shimano 2x10-speed road drivetrains
- optimized outer plates (zinc-aluminium alloy) for smooth shifting and reduced chance of chain suck
- optimized inner plates (grey) for smooth rear shifting
- less force required when shifting
- smooth shifting even under load
- perforated inner plates to save weight
- improved construction for better shifting
- performance indicator: advanced (level 2 out of 3)
The weight of the HG (Hyperglide) chain is reduced thanks to the perforated inner plates. The inner and outer plate, designed for better contact with gear teeth, allows smooth shifting even under high load conditions. In addition. The chain has achieved a pedaling efficiency of 0.6% higher. Made for HG cassettes.
This chain has unique, asymmetrical design. The specially formed plates optimize the interaction between chain and cog as well as smoother shifting under load. The inner side is optimized for rear HG (Hyperglide) shifts and ensures fast and precise shifting. The outer sided is optimized for chainring shifts. The sides of the chain are marked to ensure that the chain is correctly assembled. The side with the markings is the outer side.
Warning: The high shifting performance is achieved only through proper assembly. If the chain is assembled incorrectly, the chain may fall which may lead to serious injury.
