116 links for a reason. 8 speed chains from two other well-regarded manufacturers come with 114 links. Except I had an application where the large/large gear combo *required* 116. Shifts excellently with this bike's Shimano Altus derailleur paired with a SunRace 8 speed freewheel.
It's a chain, it seems to be of good quality.
X8 is a great chain reminds me of the old school uni glide chain when I started mountain biking back in the 70s

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.
NICKLE PLATED COATING
Nickel is an alloying metal that is mainly used for steel refinement. It makes steel resistant to corrosion, increases its hardness and toughness and is very effective as a rust protection.
