I am beginning to upgrade my Calfee to Shimano 11 speed.
9001 levers
9000 derailleurs
9000 cassette
Stronglight CT2 chainrings

Can I use a KMC X11SL DLC chain?
Or should I stick with a Dura-Ace 11 speed chain?

I'm running X11 on my Evo with full Dura-Ace 9000 (except for the Hollowgram crank). You'll be fine.

ditto, with 9000 and X11SL, best drive train ever!

6800 grouppo with X11SL chain. Works perfect.

I'm using Sram Red/Force 22, Shimano 9000 cassette and X11SL chain with no problems!

Word from a Shimano techs, from a recent dealer training session is to go with the XTR chain.

Supposely they've found the most success with that setup.

Been running X11SL gold with DA9000 and SiSL2 w/Spiderring on my EVO for about a year and zero problem whatsoever.
