Strengths:    Works ok when riding

Weaknesses:    Powerlink when trying to split

Bottom Line:   
Functions ok apart from the powerlink. This is my second SRAM chain and both times I have needed to split the chain has been a serious problem. The powerlink works fine I'm sure on a new clean chain but on one that's had a few hundred miles wear and dirt it simply doesn't come off as the instructions suggest. A Shimano chain is much easier to split and for this reason I'll not buy SRAM again.

Strengths:    light, like the power link connector

Weaknesses:    loud, limited lifetime due to fast stretch

Bottom Line:   
Average chain that is sold as SRAM's top product, chain used on Red Crank and Force shifters, if you can get it for less than 50$ it is a fair deal. Mine had enough stretch after 2000 miles. I would not recommend this chain as it is too expensive for what it does. Shifting is average especially front shifting suffers (saw great improvement after changing chain). Sometimes less weight does not translate into better performance. I changed to Sram's cheapest chain 1030 that is blasting 28grams heavier but shifts much better in the front (chain drops stopped suddenly).
