YBN has created the lightest and most technically advanced 11 speed chain in the world, period. They are not only fully compatible with Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo drive trains, they absolutely rock on all of them. We stock 3 levels of YBN to best suit your needs. The SLA Gold, Silver and Black as standard also come with hollow pins and laser cut outs on inner and outer plates to make them one of the lightest on the market. The Silver and Gold chains also have the option of solid plates vs laser cut outs if you prefer that look – they are exactly the same chain as the ones with laser cut outs, just 3 grams heavier across 116 links.
All YBN SLA have the best tech available across all working parts – Chromium Carbide hardened pins AND rollers (almost all other top chains chromium treat pin only), and patented Nickel PTFE low friction coating across all parts. Silver chains are nickel plated, Gold / Black chains are Titanium Nitride Plated. Nickel plating is superior to no plating, Titanium Nitride is a little bit superior to Nickel Plating.
