I have had great luck with KMC x10sl chains on my past Sram Red and DA 7900. I did a search and found just a few people looking for the arrival in Jan 2013 but nothing on experiences with the X11sl. Are they working as well as the X10sl did with DA? on the DA 9000 are they Quiet, shifts well just looking for actual experiences. They were always lighter than the DA chains, I hope they are still...

Thanks in advance

Using one on 9070 Di2 with a Campag cassette - works flawlessly.

That is what I am looking for, the DA chain are great however the KMC has been my go to replacement. With the new DA, it appears that one has to be careful with the extra tight tolerances with the cassette.
