A chain that’s more than the sum of its hollow pins or its fanatically shaped chamfers. Because it takes more to make a chain XX1 Eagle worthy. XX1 means uncompromising strength at an ultra-light weight with performance consistency and silky smooth, whisper-quiet operation. Now completed with our all-new Eagle Colorsystem setting the aesthetic bar and giving riders color options from Black to Gold to Rainbow, including all-new Copper.
The SRAM HARD CHROME chain has a four times higher (wear) strength than other SRAM chains. This is due to the new machining process for the inner links and rollers. The push-pin strength and the overall strength correspond to the current SRAM chains. The HARD CHROME chain lasts longer and is extremely stable.
SRAM Chain Engineers have developed PowerLock as a tool-free, safe and constant way to connect their chains. Although PL does not require any special tools for assembly, each PowerLock can only be used once due to the narrow tolerance range of a 10 and 11-speed drive.
