Hi, what's the best, lightest yet durable 10 speed chain on the market to work with SRAM XX for XC racing?

Any feedback appreciated.

Thanks

KMC SL, superb. Snapped quite a few XTR and Dura ace chains, never a KMC.

Any chain- SRAM, Shimano, KMC- just change them often. Use a quicklink- have another quicklink taped on to your cables.

I really like using the Shimano DA7900 chains. I've also had no issues with a Sram 1091R.

Last year and before last I rode KMC SL, its OK. This year I have XTR, I have a Shimano, it shifts with him better... Still I think KMC SL it OK!
