The new gold standard.

SRAM used everything it knew about chain technology to design the PC 1091R Hollow Pin Chain.

  • Hollow Pin technology reduces weight without compromising chain strength
  • PowerLock allows tool-free chain connection (one-time-use only)
  • More heavily chamfered plates for smoother shifting and a quieter ride
  • New inner plate finish and chrome-hardened pin construction for increased chain life


  • Nickel-plated steel
  • HollowPin Technology
  • PowerLock chain connection
  • Chrome-hardened pin construction

Put it on your bike

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought this for the hubs. Here’s his review:

I chose this chain because I’m one of those riders that trains and races on race-ready equipment. This chain model has given me zero issues all the times I’ve replaced it. Perfect shifts, low noise, cleans easily, and has never broken. That’s all I ask, and this chain delivers.

Ending the reign of Shimano

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

For the last 7-8 years every person has told me to run a ultegra or DA chain, but never run a Sram chain because they "suck" "loud" "poor shifting" etc. So that is what i did for many years and experimented with KMC, KCNC, Wipperman etc to try others as well. The best was always the DA chain until now. This chain is spot on and delivers perfect shifts. There is not more noise than a DA chain, light, great shifting, and i have zero complaints.

it's off the chain!!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Replaced the chain on my sram red 10 spd drivetrain (50/34 and 12-28). super easy to install (had to remove three links). I just matched it to the length of my previous chain instead of trying to measure it out like the instructions suggested. Used the pedro chain breaker tool which was a bit pricey for what it does, but essential if you want to replace a chain. After ~100miles it's working great and shifting is ever so slightly smoother. all in all a great buy. I'm thinking of picking up another one while these are on sale for only $40.

it's off the chain!!!!

Still going strong

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I put this on my Giant Reign X1 in 2011 and it's still going strong! I have derailed the chain, bashed the chain on logs and rocks and put well over 800 miles on this chain alone.

Let me say, I have NEVER had to do any adjustments on this. It worked from day 1 and still works. It has never broken or needed anything. Least amount of maintenance of any chain I've owned.

Keep her clean and lubed and she too will be good to you.

Can I use a regular chain tool for hollow...

Can I use a regular chain tool for hollow pin chains?

Responded on

Never needed it with this chain....she's as solid as German Woman named Helga who spends way too much time at the gym.

BUT, having this chain I don't see why not, the pins are just hollow.

Great Chain

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just put this chain on to do a complete drivetrain overhaul and the chain is great. Only issue the quick connect is impossible to set the first several times by hand. Thank goodness I have chain pliers for disconnecting quick connects that has the function to also set it! The chain so far has performed as expected. Overall a chain is a chain but got this baby on sale so tried it. You will not be disappointed. Mine runs on a Orbea Orca with a SRAM Force drivetrain.

Next time hold rear brake and stomp on pedal. Link will pop right in. I've bought this chain three different times. Prices keeps getting better. Buy two at a time when on sale and keep checking back when on your last one. You should always find on the cheap. Great chain by the way! Everybody will be on Srams wagon once E tap rolls on to the market.
