Introducing KMC's latest coating technology, Gold Titanium Nitride. This surface is very hard and super smooth, not only will your chain remain a GOLDEN chain, it is also less susceptible to dirt, easier to clean and therefore retain it's function much longer than regular chains. Don't worry, if you ride an 8-speed drive-train you can also use our X9 Ti-N Gold. In fact, KMC is so convinced of the quality of the Ti-N coated chains that they guarantee your satisfaction!
The X-SL series are the lightest chains in their class. Furthermore, because of the weight reduction the chain has many important benefits such as super fast shifting with a smoother action and even a significant reduction of "Chain-Suck". Discovered during field tests, the open inner plate construction facilitates the removal of dirt from within the drive train.
The hollow pin is riveted according to KMC’s new "LAT STEP" process, sealing the outer plate with an impressive 350 kilograms of pin power, making it the strongest chain connection in the industry today.
Our test riders loved this chain from the outset. Riding X-SL they discovered the "True Racing Chain".
