fast shipping, very good chain, AAA++++!!!
I bought two of these KMC chains from Amazon and they came in what appeared to be original packaging. The first blew 3 days ago before reaching its first 11 miles. The second blew yesterday in the middle of an intersection. I’ve bought two K11 basic models from this site directly and will update you on the quality comparison. But I feel like the two I got from Amazon were fakes, but used identical packaging.
Not only is the gold a flashy touch, it's also super light. Strong, durable chain that does it's job and does it well. I've been buying the X11SL versions for years now on all my 11 speed bikes without issues!
Great looking and works well!!
I also bought this chain (three (3) of them) at an off-site listing (Ebay) and they turned out to be counterfeit. They were a lot cheaper than buying from a reputable dealer ("If it's too good to be true, it usually is...). A pain in the rear to get my money back. Now I'll only buy from here or a recognized dealer.
