Our favorite chain for most applications. Works with all derailleur systems except 9/10/11-speed, including Shimano HG and IG. Includes a "Power Link" re-usable master link.
This is our main recommendation for bikes with 5-, 6-, 7- or 8-speed rear clusters.
SRAM 9-speed chain.. Works with all 9-speed derailer systems. Includes a "Power Link" re-usable master link.
SRAM Power Links
These re-usable master links allow you to open and close your chain for cleaning without damaging any links. Specify 7-/8-speed or 9-speed version.
Sram Power Link
Re-usable master link. One of these is included with every SRAM derailer chain.
PowerLink 7-/8-speed PowerLink II 9-speedWorks with Shimano & SRAM 10-speed derailer systems. Includes a PowerLink connecting link.If you are having trouble fitting the desired gears onto a bike with vertical dropouts, this link will let you add or subtract 1/2 a link (1/2 inch) from your chain, allowing you to move the axle 1/4" forward or backward. We never used to be able to get half-links for the narrow chain, this is a new item!
Wide 1/8" chains are listed on our Wide Chains page
