Strengths:    None.

Weaknesses:    Installation

Bottom Line:   
I have been using Sram 9 speed chains for years. The 10 speed leaves something to be desired. The connecting pin is not well made. It went on well sort of and then would not fit correctly causing the chain to skip. Had to use the chain remover to get the pos of the bike. It will be replaced with Campy soon.

Strengths:    finish looks nice

Weaknesses:    questionable durability. Noisy and clunky when shifting.

Bottom Line:   
I had this chain on my 09 Giant adv 1 w/sram force. It worked okay but is very noisy and clunky when shifting. The bike is not even 4 months old and a pin just broke right in the middle of a ride while shifting! I have replaced it with a dura ace chain-no noise and smoother. Maybe new chain for red group is better?

Strengths:    light strong and engineered to take a beating. Actually made in a European nation.

Weaknesses:    Cost but hey I didn't pay for the chain.

Bottom Line:   
Well first off the dura ace chain, excuse the pun. I checked the stretch on this so called Dura ace chain and stretch is an understatement. The chain became half an entire link longer, ya scarry. So it was time for a chain-ge. The pc1090 went on and the shifting again was at sram level. Teamed with the sram red cassette it feels like a $7000.00 S works. The chain is smoooth and fast, the lube also appears to hold well. Seriously Shimano dont live on your past, get with the sram ages.
