Mostyn I always use KMC chains with a Conex link, Runs smooth with crisp gear changes, and they last.
AndyChem I previously used Shimano chains, but KMC's cost about the same but have two advantages: they are not directional and they use a removable link to connect. While the link is said to be non-reusable I have found they can be reinstalled, allowing the chain to be cleaned off the bike easily. Lifetime varies. I typically get 2-3000km before it "stretches" enough to require replacement. My wife gets 5000 km or so since she doesn't pedal as hard. In my view KMC X11 chain offers the best bang for the $$. And Merlin typically have them at a good price.
RDG My go-to chain for my shimano equipped bikes. Easy to fit, good life and even better when on offer.
Mr Bridges Great quality. My first KMC chain so not sure on longevity at the moment but certainly runs really smoothly.
Mr Olazo Great chain. Actually quieter than the Ultegra chain. Good thing I’ve read the reviews first before deciding which chain to buy.
Roland Cheap and simple to fit with a reusable link. Wear out relatively quickly though, but no faster than equivalent SRAM or Shimano.
Velomind Can't go wrong with KMC chains, best by far. I do 9000 miles a year and make sure I swap these before they wear out, but it takes a long time... Usually double my previous sram or shimano chains. The x11 is cheap and ideal for the winter bike, but is a good step up from a 105 chain
Mr CARTER Superb chain better than Shimano. As usual superb service from Merlin
Scott KMC is my go to chain. As always, Merlin's service is top notch.
Mr Muldoon No complaints. Reliable and reasonably durable.
Bill Great chain. Been using for years. Very reliable and easy to fit with quick link
Mr McCabe Have preferred KMC to Shimano for sometime. The quick link works well, chain wears well and shifts smoothly.
Mr Graham Replacement to what came with the bike. KMC never lets me down.
Mr Birkin Bought to replace Shimano chains on 105 and ultegra drivetrains. KMC are smoother, quieter and cheaper.
Mr Descy Nice chain. Not the quietest but I guess that's subjective. Only used it for two weeks so don't know how it'll fare long term. Good price and it also looks good.
Mr Simmonite Good value chain with quick link fixing, running smoothly and still shines despite the wet summer
Peter Great value chain, wears well and lasts a long time
Mr Stříteský Perhaps the best chain I've ever had on a bike. Price performance ratio
Mr Leslie Great quality chains with split link, at an excellent price
Mr Peters I have been using these chains for a long time without issue. They shift well and last pretty well, plus you get the quick link.
Laurent Fignon Excellent chain, I've used with both Shimano and Sram drive trains, works flawlessly. Cool looking black and silver. Only a few grams heavier than the overprices El and Sl versions.
tony Replaced like for like after 1600 miles on my last one
David KMC are my preferred option for chain replacements. I have used them for several years now and tend to find them smooth running with my Ultegra groupset. I have also found I tend to get better mileage with KMC rather than the Shimano originals. The look of this chain is a little different with the black and silver contrast which looks great on the bike
Mr Arroyo I brought this chain as I was not happy with the standard one supplied with the 105 R7000 groupset and let me tell you that it feels like a new groupset the gear changes throughout the cassette are snappy and responsive, a cheap & worth while investment.
Dave Love these chains. Good quality and long life and look good too!
Adam Reallly nice chain at a great price. KMC chains always feel much better value for their middle range chains
B. Seitz Solid, reliable 11-speed chain. After watching a brand new SRAM chain develop a lovely coat of rust in its first week, and breaking multiple Shimano chains within the first 1000 miles, I won't use anything else.
Garry Chain is fitted to MTB with XTR and shifts great, love these chains. Great service from Merlin as always.
Mid Sussex Cycle Easy to fit, non-directional, and good value. I cannot tell the difference between these entry level chains and the more expensive chains matched to my group sets (Shimano Ultegra and SRAM Red). This KMC is quiet, and change gear smoothly. As a commuter who cycles in all weather conditions, I get through a lot of chains and this KMC makes the most sense in terms of cost and endurance.
Evrisakis KMC always delivers good products, my go to chains
