Super Light and quiet! The coating did worn out after 1-2 seasons of riding. So it is not as shinny as it did the first months, but still! the chain always felt smooth, and it outlasted my old ones. I now have one on my XC and my DH rig!
First off, this chain has been used well as it is on my fat bike. So it has been through mud, snow, rain. I still dry and lube it right after but even on the days I have forgotten I haven't noticed any rust starting. The one bummer is I have broken it twice and at times I wouldn't think it would break, but that's when they usually do. But as I stated it's been through a lot for a chain. Overall pretty satisfied. The gold looks good too.
I was told by a friend to buy this chain.....I kept breaking chains on all my bikes so I bought this one for each of them.....that was over a year ago and not one has broke! haven't checked for stretch yet but they are not mis-shifting, so no worries!
Excellent chain, super strong. Problem free for two years. Bling gold!!
