Our DLC Series chains with titanium-carbon-nitrade coating have an extremely hard surface and therefore reduced friction. The result: smooth running, optimum shifting behavior and, due to the extreme hardness of the pins, an above-average service life of the entire drive.
The KMC X-Series has been designed with the specific characteristics of the Shimano, SRAM, and Campagnolo systems in mind and will meet the most demanding requirements. Elaborately designed and manufactured, the X-Bridge technology, thanks to precisely chamfered plates, allows a smooth propulsion and perfect gear changes in all driving situations.
KMC was the first chain manufacturer to develop special chains for e-bikes with mid-mounted motors. Our analysis of the power transmission on e-bikes with a mid-motor showed that the frequent shifting operations under load require significantly higher safety reserves that cannot be realized with classic chains. Check out our e-bike chains with extra strength, coatings, and allow for higher torque.
