As 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.
Perfect smooth gear changes, great lifetime and dead reliable why buy anything else !!
Works great even on sram gears and never have I had the slightest issue with the chainset. Virtually silent noise and no flex whatsoever.
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.
Love this chain! Light, quiet, smooth and Merlin's price was just too great!
Quiet, smooth running
Smooth shifting - usual DA quality.
Very light and more quiet than 7900 chain
Great chain, very durable and runs very smoothly.
Good, reliable chain. Not that expensive, run them on all my bikes.
Bought 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.
Nice light weight chain and very smooth
Seems very slick and no longer need to worry about the direction of installation.
Quieter than the older 7900 chain.
No longer one directional. Good price too.
Nice 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.
These 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.
