XT/Ultegra CN-HG701 11-Speed Chain

When you turn the pedals, you often take for granted that each link of your chain will go on grabbing each cog of your cassette for every mile of every ride. That is, until the day it stops, and you're left standing in the shoulder questioning your life decisions with a stretched, broken, and useless chain. If you're in this position, we'd recommend upgrading to Shimano's XT/Ultegra CN-HG701 11-Speed Chain. Its anti-friction Sil-Tec coating and precise, reliable construction ensure long life and smooth pedaling. Whether you're on the road, trail, or somewhere in the middle, the HG701's asymmetrical design will keep you shifting consistently through your 11-speed drivetrain so you can focus on enjoying your ride.


  • The racer's chain for mountain and road bikes
  • Anti-friction coating keeps lost watts to a minimum
  • Includes a quick link for easier installment

Chain was a possible fake

I returned this product before using it

I recently bought this chain. My bike mechanic tried to install it but it was very floppy and not shifting properly on Shimano 11 speed Ultegra gears. He discovered it may not be authentic. I then bought a new Ultegra 11 speed Shimano chain from the mechanic and it worked great. Beware....this chain may not be authentic.

It just works

I've put it through the wringer

Perfect replacement of my old Ultegra 11 speed chain. The quick link made installation super easy, and there were more links on the main chain than my last replacement. No concern about getting the sizing right, though the cut excess feels wasteful.

Best overall

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 11"

You can’t beat this chain, for the price and quality. Compare to the Dura-Ace it last longer and is not much heavier, it came with the quick link. With good maintenance it run for more than 2000 miles

Great Chain

I've put it through the wringer

This was essential a 1 for 1 Shimano replacement on a 2x11 Trek Fuel. The OEM version held up well with this a slight up grade with the quick link.
