Description

Description

This SRAM Force 12 speed D1 chain is specially developed for the new SRAM AXS groupsets.

Quieter, lighter and more durable
Using Flattop™ technology, SRAM designed a chain that is lighter, quieter and more durable than its predecessors. SRAM have achieved this in spite of the fact that the chain also has to be thinner to work with a 12 speed cassette.

In short, if you are opting for a SRAM AXS 12 speed, this chain is the best choice!

Technology

• Chain closure: PowerLock
• Finish inside link: Chromed steel
• Finish outside link: Nickeled steel
• Pin: Solid Pin
• Finish Pin: Chromed and hardened

Assembly

Cut to length with a chain breaker
When you buy a chain, it's always too long. That means that you always need to cut it to length, and you do this using a chain breaker (also called a chain rivet tool). You can view our selection of chain breakers here. Some multi-tools contain a chain breaker. Make sure that you select a chain breaker for the right speed chain though - the size of the pins is different according to the speed of the chain.

Tips for fitting your chain
When fitting or removing this chain it's useful to remove some tension from the chain at the point where you want to break it or close the link. You can do this by making a hook from an old spoke, but some chain breaker tools actually include a handy hook precisely for this purpose. You use it to hook the part of the chain you want to work on, pulling the tension off it. You can read a detailed explanation of how to replace your chain in this blog.

Measure chain wear often
A chain wear tool makes it easy to see when your chain is worn, so that you can replace it timeously. You can find chain wear tools here.

User tips

How often should I wash my bike? Regular washing will keep your bike in good nick. It ensures that the parts on your bike last longer so that you can enjoy cycling happiness for longer. How often you should wash your bike is largely dependent on what sort of weather conditions you ride in. Are you always out there, come rain or shine? Or are you strictly a fair-weather cyclist? It all has an influence on the degree of wear on bike parts, and some of us have to wash our bikes more regularly than others. Refer to the plan below as a general guideline:

October to March:
• Wash every 200 km
• Rinse after every ride
• Dry and lube the chain after every ride
• Let the bike dry at room temperature

April to September:
• Wash every 300 km
• Rinse after a ride in the rain
• Dry and lube the chain after rinsing or washing
• Let the bike dry at room temperature

Average / not exceptional for that price

- Branco 13 October 2022

Wear is as always and certainly not exceptionally longer than other chains. I maintain my bike and certainly the chain exceptionally well and after about 2500km the chain shifts significantly less well, it falters on some cogs so you have to fine tune it, but it does not run completely smoothly anymore. In addition, it really isn't that quiet anymore. In short, I just put a new one on after 2500km and am satisfied with it. Wonder how people claim it will last 6000km...?
