Why Choose KMC Chains
KMC’s derailleur chains are compatible with any system, besides that KMC does not distinguish between MTB and Road chains. Product designations clearly indicate their usage. E.g. X11-series fit any 11-speed system.
Nearly every KMC chain comes with a connecting link. Assembling the chain is quite easy and safety is enhanced. To shorten the chain to its proper length a regular chain tool can be used. For assembly and disassembly of our MissingLink, we recommend our connecting and removing tools.
Compared to other renowned chain brands, KMC X-series chains last longer, as proven in many field tests. To back up this claim KMC is the only chain maker offering a unique satisfaction warranty.
KMC produces 82 million chains a year and is a major supplier to Shimano who fit 10 spd chains which are also Campagnolo compatible. The latest KMC X series MTB chains feature Bulls eye pin riveting and X bridge outer plate configuration for quicker, quieter gear changing.
