Great chain for my enduro bike. This is my second one, as I wax my chains and like to have one prepped and ready to go.
It hasn’t been installed, but the chain looks amazing. Quality is top notch, the main reason I continue to use KMC chains.
Huge fan of KMC chains for 3 years, always use KMC instead of Shimano. I was super excited about Aurora (oil slick) x12. In terms of chain quality, I have no complaints, In terms of paying 75$ for an oil slick color that starts disappearing after 500km I am a bit of dissapoint.
I use the coated chain along with waxing to ensure a smooth running drive train without the worry of rusting. I run this chain on an enduro bike and it sheds all mud and dirt with ease. Highly recommend
Does KMC X12 chain is beautiful and strong. I've used the X10 for years with a 3x10 Shimano XT drivetrain. On the 1x12 Shimano drivetrain, It works very well. It's a little noisy. I switched to a Shimano chain. Doesn't look as cool but smooth as silk. That is the only reason for four stars. If it wasn't noisy, which equals drag and wear in my opinion, I would have given five stars.
With Double X Bridge construction, our chains increase shifitng precision and shifting speed. Smooth, fast, and accurate.
INNER & OUTER CHAMFERING
Ramps specifically engineered to engage with your chain rings and cassettes quickly and provide smooth shifting.
Titanium nitride is a chemical compound of the elements titanium and nitrogen. The ceramic material of typical golden yellow color is characterized by very high hardness and corrosion resistance. KMC’s special Titanium Nitride coating not only looks fantastic, it has an ultra-smooth surface and is extremely durable.
HIGH PIN POWER
Shave grams in every link, hollow pins are used in all of our super light chains.
The latest milestone of KMC in rust protection. The non-toxic EcoProTeQ treatment doubles the rust resistance compared to KMC‘s RB anti-rust treatment. The advantages of the very smooth coating are maximum rust resistance, low noise and a great look.
