MagsNot much to say about a chain. Usual Dura Ace good quality to pair with Dura Ace of the 9000 series.
Mr WeekesSmooth and precise, improvement on 105 chain.
Andrew BBest chain, it's the second Dura Ace chain I've owned, they're just splendid!
Mr RollinsonExactly as advertised. This is a great chain and works perfectly with the supplied joining pin.
MartinNice chain. Really the only sensible choice for Shimano drivetrain. A1.
shearerGo to chain, like the way this chain shifts compared to any other chain. Great pricing too.
stephenWhat an incredible price for this top level chain. Edges of plates are lightly bevelled so it slides over the sprockets that little bit smoother.
Mr WarmanSmooth, quiet chain when paired with DA cranks and cassette.
Mr Robert MartinMy bike felt new as soon as I fitted the new chain. So silent and smooth, a great Shimano product at a very good price.
Mr WebbThe best, easy to fit and now another 5000 miles of trouble free cycling!
T.DUsual Shimano Dura-ace spec. Light, durable, silent during riding and shifting gears. Would recommend highly
K WolferstanBest chain on the market even better now they've improved the connecting pin
MunroSmooth running and keeps its nice finish for ages.
shearerTop quality shimano chain. Shifts quick and precisely. Great pricing, as always.
JacksonBetter shifting than KMC chains with a Shimano group set . Price is great at Merlin Cycles even when shipping to the US. Thank you Merlin so much. Not made of money here, so your great prices and service is a blessing.
zippnutSmooth quiet and easy to install. Great all around chain.
Pipe-WolferstanLighter, stronger, quieter and supposedly lasts longer - time will tell. Service from Merlin up to the usual high standard - good stuff!
Mr NelsonExcellent piece of equipment. Absolutely worth the upgrade even using Ultegra bits everywhere else.
Mr MunroI can feel the difference on my 5800 set up with a Dura Ace chain - runs smoother, quieter and shifts 'nicer'.
AustinVery high quality chain and so simple to install, easier by far than Campag due to the pin not needing a special fitting tool. Shifting is light and smooth, and the chain is a competitive weight.
Mr LoydI typically run Ultegra components, although for the cost the Dura Ace chain is hard to beat.
GinsterdrzLong lasting, reliable, smooth shifting chain at a bargain price.
Mr bakerGreat quality chain. Change them at 75% wear and cassettes will last for ages.
dreyerLove this chain, I run full Dura Ace gruppo on my bike so only the best chain will do. Shifts beautifully and nice and light weight too.
Mr bianchiBest chain in the market, I love this thing.
Mr BrittenGreat chain, very durable, very light. Never broken one yet
Mr aljaberGreat improvement over the 6800/7900. I get around 3500km out of it.
Mr MurphySmooth running, Shimanos best yet
Mr JAMILOSAProbably the best chain in the market!
Mr MunroAs there is not much difference in price it is always nice to have a bit of Dura Ace on the bike. There is a small but noticeable improvement on my 5800 105 shifting - smoother moving across the cassette. Also the higher grade metals and coating means the chain cleans up nicer than the 105 one - it is not as susceptible to corrosion.
Mr JerhamPerfect smooth gear changes, great lifetime and dead reliable why buy anything else !!
Mr HeWorks great even on sram gears and never have I had the slightest issue with the chainset. Virtually silent noise and no flex whatsoever.
Greg D.About 250mi on this chain and so far I'm happy with it. I got very good mileage out of the 10-speed chain so I'm hoping for similar performance with the 11-speed. When combined with the 9070 Di2 Groupset shifting is precise, crisp and fairly quiet.
Mr HanLove this chain! Light, quiet, smooth and Merlin's price was just too great!
HershQuiet, smooth running
Mr MarshallSmooth shifting - usual DA quality.
Mr MakrypouliasVery light and more quiet than 7900 chain
MattGreat chain, very durable and runs very smoothly.
Mr WadeGood, reliable chain. Not that expensive, run them on all my bikes.
Mr hebertBought this chain for my 10 sp Sram Red and it works great and is lighter then the 10 sp Dura Ace chain I've been using.
Mr OsmanNice light weight chain and very smooth
Mr MunroSeems very slick and no longer need to worry about the direction of installation.
Mr ChappellQuieter than the older 7900 chain. No longer one directional. Good price too.
Mr PartridgeNice chain and a very good price. I have this running with a Shimano 9000 chainset a 7900 10 speed cassette and ultegra 6700 rear mech with no issues.
TheOCCyclistThese chains are fantastic, primarily due to their light weight and absolutely crisp shifting when paired with a properly tuned Dura Ace drive train. I use these on both my DA9000 and DA7800 bikes and it works like a charm. Only misstep is the longevity of the chain. Look to replace these every 1200 miles, max.
Mr AveryGood weight saving.
