Last night I did a 12hr MTB race solo. First lap the xx1 eagle chain snapped after an admitidly bad shift. A long walk back to the start area and all I could find was an lbs tent with a kmc 11-93. So I thought what the hell.

Even though it's an 11 speed chain and should be too wide it was not. It shifted better than the expensive eagle chain, ran quieter and did not break.

I will keep this chain on and see what it does to the cassette. 12hrs of racing and not a problem with the chain apart from having to restart my first lap 40 minutes late. Still finished 7th.
