2012 Model No Longer Available
KMC X9SL Chain - 9-Speed - 2012 BCS
We've had cutters for our frame-prep tools Ti-Nitride coated before. It increases the surface hardness and they last longer, making finer cuts on the head tubes and bottom bracket shells. The KMC X9SL Gold 9-Speed Chain uses the same Ti-nitride coating to give it a superior degree of toughness and durability. And the best part of Ti-nitride? The super sweet gold finish will add some serious bling to your bike.
In addition to looking good, the X9SL Gold has hollow link pins and some serious relieving on the inner and outer plates. It will save you about 40 grams over a typical XTR or SRAM 991 chain. The outer plates have chamfered inner surfaces to ensure smooth shifting from cog to cog.
The KMC X9SL Gold 9-Speed Chain comes with a quick-connecting link for easy assembly and service.
