Just what I needed

- Louis, 3 July, 2024

Works exactly as expected, nothing bad to say. Had no issue cutting the chain and using the quicklink. I actually cut my chain too short but was able to add a few links back to get the desired chain length. One of the links was a bit stiff at first but with some tricks and a bit of lube, that quickly went away. Very satisfied.

Pros & Cons

Easy to install
Reliable

I prefer to use an ultegra chain because it's cheaper than the dura ace and I change it more often to keep the same sprocket set (on average 3 chains on 1 cassette).

Pros & Cons

Easy to assemble yourself
Fully compatible with dura ace 11v groupset
Less expensive than the dura ace chain and just as efficient
