Love the color haven’t put it on yet but it looks like good quality
My KMC X11EL (silver color) lasted 10,000 miles!!! Every time I lubed it with Rock & Roll Gold (about every 150 miles) I checked its wear with both a go/no go tool as well as an electronic chain caliper so when I state that it lasted this long...it did. It took that many miles for the chain to wear to the .5 point which, for 11 speeds, is the point at which the stretch is unacceptable. Comparing this chain to the vaunted YBN chain, which only last a little over 1,900 miles, there's no contest.
The only caution is that you must realize that, as of the date of this review, there are far too many counterfeits on the market, from Amazon and from Ebay and more. Get them direct from KMC.
So far i have put 100 miles on the chain and no issues so far. Great looking too
Quality chain and the gold color gives my bike some nice looking bling.
