I am new here, so welcome all. I do not speak eng well, a far from well :wink:

I doing around 10kkm per year and i want to know which chain will be more durable between these two cheap 10 speed chains ? Thats one thing i want too know, i buy 3 or 4 for one crank and one casette.

Thanks a lot riders :mrgreen:

    I have both and I think the KMC is a smoother chain. As for durability I have not worn either out so far so cannot comment.

    Hope that helps.

    +1 for KMC. I also find them consistently smoother than SRAM chains
    Titus Silk Road Ti rigid 29er - Scott Solace 10 disc - Kinesis Crosslight Pro6 disc - Scott CR1 SL - Pinnacle Arkose X 650b - Pinnacle Arkose singlespeed - Specialized Singlecross...& an Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray 4 string...
  • Once again , thx.

    Yes, i read that KMC is smoother chain and have reusable connection link(Sram 10 speed masterlink also can be used many times if we use proper tool) so its 2:0 for KMC.

    I buy 3x 1031 for one season for the same Tiagra 4600 casette and same Tiagra 4650 crank and for another season same new 4600 + new 4650 with 3x KMC x10-73 and we see .....

    Please tell about these two anyway, cuz i will be looking here.
