I have SRAM red group set 10 speed on Ultegra 28-11 rear cog cassette. I'm looking to change the chain. What are the options I have, if you could advice few options from the most quality pricy one to the basic one.
Thanks..!

I recommend putting in a search. This topic has been discussed many times, so you won't have issues locating a couple of similar threads. However, like "favorite" lubes or saddles, you'll get a wide variety of answers on the best chains. My preference is KMC X10SL.

KMC X10SL. Best chain for the money.

The Yaban chains are slightly lighter but very durable. Also slightly narrower (can run them on campy 10spd as well).

How does the KMC X10SL compare to the SRAM PC 1091R PowerChain. Weights seems to be about the same, shifting? The reason I ask is because I just replaced the Shimano 105 group on my Caad10 with SRAM Red and went with the 1091R PowerChain. Would there be a benefit to replace it?
