Quadra-X Ring: Quadra-X Ring design reduces friction by as much as 40% due to a smaller contact area. The X-ring's 4-point contact patch also offers better sealing than conventional O-rings. Lab tests show the Quadra-X ring chains last 50% longer than a standard O-ring chain.
CRH Pin Treatment: EK's exclusive CRH pin treatment provides an extremely hard outside coating and softer inside to increase strength and reduce chain wear. The chromium-carbide pin surface coating also offers superior impact and shock absorption while reducing oxidation caused by exposure to nature's elements.
Lightening Holes: Lightening holes in the side plates reduce the chain's overall weight by 3% without compromising tensile strength. These holes also extend the service life by dissipating heat and helping reduce dirt and mud build-up.
There are many options for chains. They range from suicidaly fragile and inexpensive to response stealingly heavy monstrsities meant for 2000 more ccs of displacement than you have for the humble.cost of your retirement plan.
But ultimately, there are three comparative brands out there people buy the most. I will not name them. They are all good enough, though one of them seem to be somewhat inferior to the others. E/K is not that one. These chains are of superb quality, and excel in any type of street tomfoolery- not that I endorse such, as bikes look better.withtheir fairings intact.
When given to my mechanic to install, he said first off "That's a big buy." He was impressed. After about 300 miles, I'm impressed too. The ride.is smooth, the chain travel is silky over the new sprockets (often a smart buy with new chains), and there's that mild cosmetic factor as well. When people see a colored chain with rivet master coming out of a liter block, quite the statement.
