Great chain for the price. Works great with the DynaSys 10 speed system as you would expect. Its a bit heavier than some of the high end chains, but I'll sacrifice a few grams for Shimano quality and durabilty.
The bottom line with these chains for me is: The initial shifting performance is excellent if you are using a Shimano drivetrain. The problem is after a while these chains wear significantly faster than rival chains like KMC. I had three of these chains (including the one that came stock on my bike). The first one broke at the installation link, which I will accredit to poor installation by the bike factory. The second one lasted half a season before my chain checker said it was stretched beyond tolerance, and the third one lasted the second half of the season before it too was worn - along with my cassette and chainrings. On the bench, I believe nothing shifts better than a Shimano chain with Shimano drivetrain. Unfortunately in the real world, they just don't last compared to the cheaper KMC's I can buy, which is why I give it 3/5.
Great Chain Works Good with Shimano XT Drive Train
So far so good. Shifts well, cleans well.....just hope it holds up but I have no reason to expect it not too.
best chain i`ve used,last longer than an xtr and much cheaper. a tad heavier but worth it to me on the durability.
Snapped on the first ride. The Shimano chain pins are much less user-friendly than a SRAM power link.
