got a few bikes with campy 10
wondering if i should make the jump to 11-speed chain
looking to balance economy and performance
not wedded to the campagnolo brand for chain selection

Campagnolo chains are still the best.

Campag Chorus or KMC Dx10Sl work best for mine

I've run a lot of KMC and Campy chains over many years and while the KMC's we're fine the Campy chains were definitely better running.

Campagnolo chains. I get maximum 4000kms from KMC/Shimano, Campy gets me almost 6000 on 11s and once hit 8000 on a 10s chain(and 60.000kms on the cassette).
KMC are ok, but if you can, get yourself a Campy chain.

Well I manage 3000km at best from a campag chain before it gets to the wear limit

Kmc do 2000 km.

Chain life is very dependent on the rider. Spinning who maintain a straight chainline get longer life. The numbers posted by octav are not typical.

campy record or kmc x-10 are the best. do not use shimano as it does not shift as well as the campy chains for a campy drivetrain.

Wippermann stainless chains have been great for me over the last three years.

I had flawless shifting with the KMC X10SL Ti Nitride chain on Campag Record 10 speed. Check out the Omega build in my signature for blingy pics of the driveline :D

i think i could get 11s campy rec. chain cheaper than 10s campy rec. at this point.
and the 11s non-series even less expensive

The Wipperman/Connex chains ran great on on my old Campy 10 group.

Always used Campag chains, never an issue... switched to a Di2 group for a few years, and went through more chains in 2 years on it then I went through on Campy drivetrain in 5 years... switched my Tarmac back to EPS but never got to ride it since winter set in...
