Looks resistant to corrosion and overall better quality than the 105 chain. When paired to the Ultegra cassette seems a bit smooother. Cannot speak about durability yet.
A smooth, well engineered chain.
I am now on my fourth Ultegra chain and cassette combination and they have performed flawlessly. There is no real difference to dura ace other than the weight saving for me so save your cash !! One massive difference I have found is that I replaced the Jagwire cabling on my bike with the Shimano PTFE kit and WOW ! It's transformed my Ultegra set up. The shifting is ultra smooth. When changing up or down it's a slight push to the click and it's changed. No more push and hold or push and push a touch more then oops it's a double click like with the Jagwire cabling. I never realised how good Ultegra really is until I switched to PTFE. Oh and thanks Merlin for your as usual excellent prices and delivery times !!
Excellent product, long life, good performance..
Runs smoothly and near silently. Definate improvement on the previous Tiagra chain,
Great value chain from a trusted brand that lasts for ages with an occasional clean and lube.
Great chain, great Ultegra quality
Smooth running and quiet, as to be expected from Shimano.
Fitted this to my Sram Red group set, replacing a Sram Force chain which was not worn just very noisy. It sounds much quieter now. I do find Shimano chains to be the smoothest and quietest. Plus at Merlin's price it is a real bargin.
Nice and smooth using quick link as well
Very easy to install as shimano supply a special pin which you can slot in place with your fingers and away you go. I only wish they would include a powerlink like some other brands so that you don't have to use a chain extractor tool to remove the chain. A minor niggle as it's not something you would need to do very often.
In terms of longevity or performance only time will tell.
This chain was simple too fit and comes with one chain pin. Fits nicely and runs very smooth. Tested this out on a 75 mile ride and a 50 mile ride so far and it certainly glides nicely. Running this chain on a sram force crankset and ultegra fd, rd and cassette. Great price at present on Merlin and well worth a go. Not much price difference between 105 chain and this one however weight saving and performance i believe are noticeable.
Excellent well made and reliable chain, Quiet and smooth shifts, I always use the KMC quick link as the Shimano pin is a Faff and it makes taking the chain off much easier. Make sure that you put this chain on the right way as its directional. As always top service from Merlin, great price and rapid delivery.
This is a great chain and an incredible price! Haven't had an issue with shifting and never had one of these break. (provided its kept well greased)
I've got through loads of these and keep coming back for more. It does what it's supposed to and I've not had one snap on me for well over ten years. I've also ridden them with three joining pins, due to a number of frame swaps, with no problems. I'm very happy with this product.
A high-quality chain at a fair price, with Merlin's usual rapid service.
Excellent chain at a brilliant price, many thanks
Quality shimano chain, not Dura Ace but whos checking?
Brilliant chain - runs as smooth as silk even on a 2006 version of the Ultegra groupset. Great price too.
I upgrade from 9-speed to 10-speed, changing the triple crank to double one. That causes me to change everything. I must have spent more money, but here "Merlin" gave me good prices. Thanks so much, Merlin!! Next time again I will definitely come and buy some, I swear. I was lucky I found this nice internet shopping. Thanks.
Great shifting chain and pretty light. Wouldn't use any other with my Ultegra groupset. Just remember it's directional and has to be put on the right way around!
Great chain. Essential for your bike maintenance. Great price and ultra swift service.
Good quality chain - always use Ultegra chains and never had any bother. Last one saw me through all the filth and grime of the 2012 english summer and still cleaned up well after each ride.
I generally change them after about 1500 miles, by which point my chain checker is starting to indicate enough wear to warrant the change. With Merlin's discounted price, it's a lot more affordable to change them!
Great chain at a reasonable price. Works especially well with Shimano drive train.
Ultegra is a solid option at the price point. This does the job and has never failed on me in five years.
Excellent piece of kit at an excellent price.
As always excellent service an delivery and a great buy
Great quality as described ..Excellent competative prices. the postage is always the fastest online... CUSTOMER SERVICE IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS
Quality Shimano product at a very very good price. Will be ordering more soon!!
Quiet slick shifting from a chain so light yet so strong
Good and light chain
Shimano Ultegra first class components will purchase every time, 5 star.
Best price going around. Swift delivery also. Cannot fault Merlin
Shifts well, light, no problems so far. Can't fault the chain. Merlin's service was, as usual, incredibly fast. Overall, very happy!
Found prices were competative on my 5 purchased items, the postage delivery was on time and well packaged.
No discount was received on postage ?
I will be a return customer if prices and delivery costa are faverable
No packaging other than plastic wrap, which honestly doesn't matter, but a great deal on the chain!
Bought this chain to use with a new Ultegra cassette. My original chain and cassette were Shimano 105 5700. To be honest I don't notice any different in shifting performance. Shimano gear shifts are very good across the range of groups anyway.
I replaced my tired and stretched 105 when you get to hold both of them at the same time you can feel the weight difference .The ultegra looks like a quality product
Very solid and silent chain, very pleased with it.
