Description

The HG-701 Quick Link is a Shimano 11-speed chain from the Ultegra/XT-level range with a Quick Link. This chain is suitable for both 11-speed mountain bike and 11-speed road bike groupsets. Other chain manufacturers offered it, but now (at long last) so does Shimano. The Shimano Quick Link is a quick way of unlinking the chain for easy cleaning or replacement. Closing the chain is then done using the Chain Link. This link has been designed for tool-free installation.

This redesigned Shimano chain ensures lightning fast shift performance. The chain has been redesigned to reduce the chance of chain-suck. The Sil-Tec coating on both the inner and outer links ensures a longer service life and improved shift performance. The inner link was specifically designed to improve the contact with the cogs, making the chain shift better under challenging conditions.

The chain has also been designed to be a quiet as possible when riding. The chain has a width of 5.62 millimeters and has been fully optimised to work with the Shimano 11-speed Super Narrow HG-EV components.
