The KMC X10SL Gold 10-Speed Chain employs a high-tech titanium-nitride coating that does two great things in addition to looking hot: First, it increases the life of the chain by reducing stretch and increasing its surface hardness. The second thing is the titanium nitride holds lube on its surface better, which means less maintenance work for you and an increase in service life for your chain.

In addition to these first two points, the X10SL Gold has hollow link pins and perforations on the inner and outer plates. These weight saving reductions of excess material will save you about 70-80 grams over a typical 10-speed chain. The outer plates have chamfered inner surfaces to ensure smooth shifting from cog to cog.

The KMC X10Sl Gold 10-Speed Chain comes with a quick-connecting link for easy assemble and service. Its 5.88mm width allows compatibility with any 10-speed drivetrain system from Campagnolo, Shimano, or SRAM.

Upgrade Ultegra

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

My ultegra 10 spd was clanging and dropping off the small ring on my FSA K Force Light. I replaced it with the KMC Silver X10L, it is super smooth, positive quiet shifts and no more dropped chains. It feels faster; )

Bling Bling

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not only does the gold look good but the chain works very well. It may not be the absolute best chain on the market, but when mountain biking you want something that is reliable and this is.

Not As Good a Dura Ace Chain

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When is was time to replace the chain for my Dura Ace 7900 groupset I tried this. It worked alright, but my shifts were always a little off. Anyway when I went back to a Dura Ace chain the problems went away. I have a KMC chain on my mountain bike and that one is flawless.

Responded on

Very true, but not bad for the price, and better than the SRAM

so far so good.

252 grams on my scale w all links. link goes on by hand. to disconnect link requires a very thin smooth jawed pliers, cant disconnect by hand.
pamphlet says 3x then get a new link.

shifting seems great. no real miles yet so no comment on durability.
