I need a new shimano 10-speed cassette and wanted to get 11-21. There's no such product in the Ultegra range, but there is in the Dura Ace.

Do you have to use a Shimano Dura Ace chain (Super Narrow) with DA cassettes or would my usual KMC 10-speed chains be compatible?

    Hi Genki

    What cassette are you currently using? Ultegra? There shouldn't be any issues using your KMC chain with a Dura Ace cassette.

    Yes, I've got an ultegra cassette. But looking at shimano's website it says use the narrow 10sp DA chain in the info for DA cassettes, and doesn't specify a narrow chain for Ultegra cassettes. That got me wondering if there was any reason.
  • KMC 10 speed is even smoother than D/A chain on a D/A cassette
