KMC bicycle chain 9-speed X9 SL gold
In a complex process, the flaps of the X-SL chain are milled and riveted with hollow pins. Thus, an enormous weight saving is achieved without compromising the stability and durability.
KMC chains are very slim constructed. In addition to a lower weight, this design convinces with very quiet running and less chain suck. The 9-speed chains are only 6.6 mm wide at the narrowest in its class and forgive it also times when the switching mechanism is not 100% accurately adjusted.
Double X Durability XX-SP stands for extra extra stretch proof, a process in which all parts of the chain are specially hardened. This treatment makes particular bolts highly resistant to dust and sand and thus prolongs the life enormously.
Not only a noble gold color design gets the chain through the titanium nitride coating: TiN is one of the hardest surface treatments for industrial use. The surface is extremely low friction and very easy to maintain.
For KMC chains that are driven by other closures, no warranty is taken.
