Eleven-speed alternative chain

BikeRadar score4.5/5Find prices on Bicycle Blue Book

If you’re running 11-speed, here’s an alternative to a Campagnolo chain. Although it’s £14 more expensive, there are two things that make this better than the Record 11-speed chain.

Firstly, it doesn’t require a £160 tool to install it – you simply use the MissingLink and slide the two parts together. And secondly, at 227g it’s 8g lighter. It shifts just as well as a standard Campagnolo chain.
