Great chain, the X ring design seems like a solid concept, but only time will tell. It's been on my bike for about a month and 2000 miles, thru Death Valley and some of the washed out trails, with virtually no signs of streching or kinking. More than I can say for the OE chain.
I bought this chain from cyclegear simply because the original chain i got EK chain was the wrong size, and i really needed to change it. This chain lasted me about 10k miles (my previous chain gave me 17k miles... almost freaken double). I was doing my routine chain cleaning (that i religiously perform every 500 miles) and saw the rubber o-rings were just pealing off.. some of the rubber o-rings were already off, so time for another chain :( This time, im gonna make sure I get the right size when ordering my ek chain.
Oh here's the topper... this chain was more expensive than EK Chains!!! LOOOL
Im giving it 2 stars because it didn't break on me .. but it really does deserve one star
Terrible, terrible!!!!...When I got this it was the only 525 in stock and needed to replace chain badly from Begley (previous owner).Reviews @ time of purchase were limited and 50/50 good v bad.This chain began to have links bind @2,500 miles.Friction heat seemed excessive.Questioned whether or not some how I made some error in my typical chain or sprocket maintenance. Severe uneven stretching by 6K. Again links became stiff. Prints had swelling. Used motul chain clean and chain was which never previously used which helped but only a bandaid on a staff infection.Unfortunately hard to find a 525 size in stock anywhere and have to order but will never us this product again
