The Commander I've had this chain before and as usual, it is the best for the price. Quick-Link connection easy to use (repeatedly) and the chain is well lubed out of the box. Durability should be good based on previous experience and we all like a bit of understated bling!
Mr Garnell Love KMC chains over and above shimano ones. great price too.
Blair Currie Working as expected shifts well with Sunrace cassette.
Mr Pettman Excellent product very well priced and a great company to deal with
Mr smallshaw Very quiet crisp gear changes, high quality product. Good purchase.
Mr MCLEESE Great KMC chain. Excellent value and durability
Mr Johnson Looks amazing, shifts perfect on 105 components.
Mr B Chain is great quality and is cheaper than a Shimano chain. Really liked that it comes with the quick links. Made installing the chain far quicker
Mr Cross Looks really cooool on the bike - which is also black and wow the gear changing is so smooth - have now ordered the same for my other 2 bikes
Mr Cowie My chain of choice now on both shimano ans sram group sets, shifting is perfect Looks good too.
Sendgridover Trusty KMC, tough when you need it.
Birdman Always use KMC chains. Good value and last. Great service from Merlin as always
Mr Workman Very good price for a very good item. I replaced like for like. the old chain was not fully worn, but was getting on a bit, so changed it as a precaution.
Paul As always KMC chains are a great product at a reasonable price, for all the right reasons this is my chain of choice.
Michael I always use kmc chains because the missing link seems easier to use than other brands
Balcombeboy Excellent value chain. Easy to fit and lasts as long as SRAM/Shimano.
David Good value chain. Have had two years good use from previous x11. Even after this time my chain gauge showed it was not completely worn out but have replaced anyway. My experience has been that this kmc lasts much better than sram equivalent.
Mr McNeill Looks good on the bike and dead easy to fit. Great that it comes with a master link too, unlike a lot of chains at this price point.
Martin great chain , best advice ever is to "maintain your chain" saves money in the long run good price and great service as per usual from Merlin.
G Weled Nice smooth running chain and easy to maintain. Bought a couple more for my other bikes. Great service from Merlin.
Samuel Strong,light and a little different looking from the sram and shimano offerings. Great chain which has seen me through a few muddy winters on a hardtail and the price keeps me coming back to KMC.
Mr S Ok I purchased this because it looked nice but I can’t fault the quality I’ve had several KMC chains and they always perform well
jason KMC chain’s - what can I say? Quite simply superb, stronger & longer lasting than Shimano & they look better which is a nice bonus, all my bikes get fitted with KMC chains.
roywould I buy these for my ebike and it has not let me down after a few thousand miles (changing them out according to wear of course) Strong and never break. I stick to KMC as its not worth learning hard lessons with shimano and sram chains which tend to break under the ebike loading.
MARK Great combo with 105 CS-R7000 11 speed cassette, quality products and quick delivery from Merlin.
Charlie Easy install. Watched CGN video on sizing and works perfectly
Mr Murray I'm a big fan of the KMC X11 chain, it's my go to for all my bikes.
Mr Roops Used this chain for awhile. Never failed me, and good price.
VeloM Best chain for big miles, longest lasting and strongest of the kmc chains, I use el-11 too but this is better value, cheap enough to change before you need to, but lasts almost 1000 miles more than a Shimano Ultegra or 105 chain from experience
L Gordon Works really well with my ultegra setup, and looks pretty cool with the black and silver. Comes with a quick-link which is more than can be said for the shimano chains.
Luke Can't beat these chains for the price. Lightweight and long lasting, and the quick link is so easy to use.
Dr Marsh My go to chain. Good price and lightning fast delivery from Merlin - great service as usual.
Charles Works well and a great price. Fast delivery every time too. Thanks
Mr Hernandez Just as good as Ultegra . Smooth and quiet . Like the black and silver chain , matches my black bike
David Great chain! Love the way it shifts and holds up. There are lighter chains available but I'll sacrifice that for the durability and cost.
Willie Hung These KMC chains are priced well at Merlin and they last as long as my Shimano chains if not longer.
R.T. Lawrance Always fit KMC chains when possible, high quality & reliable.
Daniel Good quality chain - looks great too. Not the lightest, but certainly durable and performs well.
Mr Butterfield I've been using these for years. Dependable performance. Recommend.
Nathan Great shifting, solid life and the two tone colour looks cool too!
rtb I use this on my both my human powered and ebike and its never let me down. i run it on a 10 speed set up BTW. Much stronger than shimano and srams
Alan I bought this chain as part of the Shimano R7000 groupset to go on my winter bike and so far this has worked well over the 1.000 +miles of use. Previously I've used Shimano Dura-ace 9 speed chains on my winter bike and noticed they seemed to rust after a while despite being regularly cleaned - no such problems as yet with this KMC one.
Mr Wright I have always found KMC chains to be excellent quality for the price. Very smooth and durable, being silver and black looks great too. I always use KMC chains, excellent customer service from Merlin Cycles, delivered within 2 days of placing the order
AgbChem My standard chain. I get about 4000 km from one.
Poisson Very nice two color chain. KMC works flawlessly with the campagnolo centaur groupset.
Keith Use this chain on alll my bikes road cross mtb great value for a great chain
Mr Birkin I really like KMC chains, they seem to be much more dependable than Shimano (less snapping etc) and quieter than Sram. Last around 1000 miles on a dirty gravel or mtb, far longer on a ‘summer bike’
Wal Good price. KMC chains wear well. Cannot see the value in buying more expensive chains. Use a Connex joining link.
Mr hunter Nice item, good quality and looks cool, always used shimano before but quality feels better with KMC
menashe Good budget option. Strong chain with quick link for ease of use
Bikeboyslim First time I’ve used a KMC chain. Highly impressed with how easy it was to install. Snap link required less force then Shimano chain. Also runs and changes more smoothly then either Shimano or Sram
Mr Lett Just a good cheap training chain
Glen A KMC best chain there is! delivery fast
Marty Great chain, solid and dependable, only just scraped through on the 114 Links with my derailleur and chainring combo. I’ll order a 118 next time. Love the missing link. Great service from Merlin, Delivered to Australia in around a week.
Stace K Nice chain at a nice price. I can't pretend to know KMC is better than Shimano or Sram but they seem to last well and I like the black and silver look.
Jim Quality and performance , quiet ride and smooth shifting .
David Good shift performance and bargin price
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
