SRAM PC-971 Chain with Powerlink Gold 2013
Delivering light weight, strength and smoothness to your drivetrain. BlackBox racers know SRAM PowerChain is designed to stand up to the toughest courses and competitors. From the convenient PowerLink connectors that eliminate the need for tools to the GLEITMO lube that protects against dirt and friction, these chains set the standard for durability and reliability.
The PC-971 chain was a simple and affordable upgrade from my PC 951 chain which was showing some wear. Plenty of miles later and no skipping or binding, even under very heavy force. Not as light as hollow pin chains but very strong.
Very efficient and dependable.
My title says it all. I guess I could add that I like the Powerlink for its ease of installation. I'm using this with a 9 speed XTR group. No problems and I don't notice any extra noise, like some people say about SRAM chains.
This is a great chain. I commute regularly and often in sloppy conditions so the chain get some abuse. This is a reliable chain and I love that the power link is so easy to remove so the chain can get a good deep clean. They are also in expensive enough to change often or keep multiple chain systems to minimize wear...
I was having a tough time keeping my chain quiet on rides, even after lubing. So, I decided it was time to replace the chain with the PC-971 and rear cassette with the PG-970. They work together perfectly! Super smooth shifting, super quiet, and an excellent price from PricePoint!
