- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

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.

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!
