Product Description

A silver chain designed for single speed and internal hub geared bikes.

Nickel plated chains help to prevent kinks that crop up in chains from long-term use. The nickel plating also provides a great touch aesthetically to your bike but also adds an extra level of resistance to corrosion. The bushed design is more suitable for heavier loads and more stressful conditions which makes it perfect for internal hub gearing as it puts the chain under much more stress

  • 1/2" X 1/8" - 112 Links, pin length 9,2 mm
  • For Internal Gear Hub / Single speed

  • Nickel plated
  • Bushed

Good solid chain - one warning.

Really can't go wrong with a KMC chain. The only thing I'll warn of is that the clip-on link, which is really easy to fit, does have pins that protrude further out that the other links. So if you've got a tight fit going through a chain tensioner with a 1/8" chain with a normal master link, you may find that this one snags going through the cages around the jockey wheels. If you've got a hub gear with a chain tensioner you might want to look at teh 3/32" chains.

Chains Guide

What are chains?

The chain is the crucial element that drives the rest of your drivetrain.

Who needs a chain?

All conventional bikes have a chain and they don’t last forever. You will need to replace your chain if it breaks or if a chain checking tool shows it’s too worn.

What are the choices?

Chain choice can be bewildering – it’s crucial you get the right chain width for your bike. Most chains don’t list the width, instead stating the type of cassette it’s suitable for e.g. eight-speed or 11-speed. Some will list the width, though, such as 3/32in.

What should I buy with them?

Every chain needs chain lube to keep it running squeak free.

Anything else?

Don’t delay changing a worn chain. Not only are you at risk of being stranded when it snaps, but a worn chain can cause wear to the rest of your drivetrain, which can be a costly mistake.
