Wipperman is legendary for their stainless steel chains. You can install and remove them for cleaning in a matter of seconds with no tools thanks to its reusable Connex 10-speed link. And the more you clean your chain, of course, the longer it and the rest of your drivetrain will last. It's not just
Strengths: Looks great.
Reusable master link.
Smooth running, quick shifting
Claimed wear is more than double that of the SRAM chains. This is really why I bought it, as I got it for a price much less than double what a 1090 chain would have cost. We will see..
Weaknesses: Pricy - but if you look online (especially in Europe) you can get this one for less than $70 right now.
I just put this on as a replacement for my SRAM 1090 that was wearing to about 1% stretch. The cassette is still the old 1070 and it's got about 60% life remaining.
So far so good - chain is beautiful and smooth, no engagement or shifting issues at all. It's quick and the real test will be its durability which remains to be seen.
I ordered a bunch of these from Performance Bike.. The pics online show a link with [B]'10S1' [/B]stamped on them. The links that arrived have [B]'10 speed'[/B] stamped on them..
Is this link a [B]10S1[/B]?Read More »
