My second KMC X11 gold chain - this one for my second road bike. I've found these shift well and have been durable to date. Looks good when clean although the plating wears off the rollers before long.
I have bought this chain several times, works great, lasts a long time and looks good.
Looks good, but shifting isn't as exact as a Shimano chain in my experience.
Had a few now, look great, wear well and easy fitting with quick link provided!
Great to see that Merlin cycles still stock the EL version of this. Excellent chain at a good price point. Very happy with the service too, thanks.
Great quality and light
Needless to say it looks so gorgeous. Absolutely recommend it!
The chain looks fantastic. It is nicely lubed up with thin chain oil. The quick links are easy to use. Only ridden a few km so far. Is definitely thinner than the 10sp chain it replaced and is very long. For my bike anyway. I think I've chopped of at least ten links on my s9 matta
Perfect piece of kit, feels smooth, I have noticed that I can average 1-2km/h more compared to shimano 105 chain.
These last for ages and ages, shift well and add a bit of Eagle looking bling bling for a fraction of the cost!
Beautiful. Light. Strong. Good price. What else is there?
Best value KMC chain, light but sensible money, better than two other brands starting with an S, lasts way longer and runs smooth, no improvement in wear on gold one but looks amazing. I do big miles, about 9000 per year but wouldn't use anything else... Tried lots of different chains but KMC el-11 or x11 are the best
Excellent KMC quality chain, and now with 118 links :)
Suggested to me by a fellow Cycling Club rider, very reliable and slightly lighter/durable than the original Shimano counterpart. Looks absolutely tremendous on the drivetrain. Highly recommend.
Such a nice bit of kits looks bling, takes and hammering and runs smooth, just given it a weeks worth of punishment in the Alps and it performed perfectly.
Very easy to fit, and offers incredibly silent running. Looks great too!
Excellent quality chain as always from KMC. Especially for the price. Stays gold for the life of the chain and haven’t snapped one yet
Works perfectly, no issue with my ultegra group set
Lightweight, durable and looks the dogs on my Supersix black inc... great price from Merlin.
Top quality chain. I run this with a Pyramid single chain ring up front and an Ultegra 11spd at the rear on the TT bike and it's smooth changing and also quiet. Gold is also faster.
KMC chain with gold finish is the best one I've used. It lasts a long time, is quiet. I will buy again
Shifts great - looks great!
Looks great, works great. Have always used these on my campagnolo 11 speed system's with no issues. So easy to fit too, no special expensive tools required. Can highly recommend.
Great chain, really quiet, would recommend this to anyone, great chain, great speedy service.
I love these chains. They just look superb when clean.
They last longer than shimano equivalents, they run smoothly and shift just as well too. Great durable good looking product at a reasonable price
I have been running KMC chains in different guises for many years now and as always you cannot fault the qaulity of the product. Light, well made and pretty silent in use. Top product, excellent delivery and excellent pricing from Merlin.
Seems well built easy to size and fit and the gold is striking.

Chain turned up as per the estimated eta. KMC are some of the best chains around hence Shimano get theirs made by them. In the gold colour it jazz's up any drivetrain with a splash of colour and works as good as it looks. The Ti Nitride coating resists corrosion very well and on di2 and 1x systems the outer plates retain their oh so appealing looks. At this price it's a bargain upgrade.
Easy fitting light and great looking. Goes especially well with my titanium frame. Paired with ultegra Di2 and the shifting is absolutely flawless! Silent and smooth. Sometimes I check to see if I've actually changed gear!
It looks good on my bike. Easy to work with and wasn't over lubricated with that shipping gunk that gets everywhere and is a pain to remove.
Have used these chains for while now and can`t fault them. Seem to last longer than shimano equivalent
BEST chain ever! I've used KMC gold chains for a few years. I was hooked after first ride, massive improvement in shifting and chain noise. Can't go wrong with any KMC chain but the gold versions are the BEST!
Great chain that really adds some bling to your bike. Looks fantastic and works great.
Came with KMC's easy-to-fit missing link, so installation is simple. Seems to shift just as well and run as quietly as any other chain I've had, too early to tell if it lasts as long as my previous Shimano item. Looks real nice when it's clean! So far, very happy.
Shifts very smooth and quiet.
Not just bling! Straight forward to install with "missing Link". Having used these products since 2012 it is clear they wear more slowly than other chains.
The product is awesome. The chain is very smoth on my new Mach 6 ;-)
Works well with 11spd Shimano. Missing link is very easy to connect
Excellent chain. I would normally buy either the EL or the SL. They feel the same and it feels like the EL lasts longer.
Silky smooth chain, knocks spots off the dura ace
Use these chains as they last longer and are not as fragile as Campag. Also I like the connecter, as I swop chians around for wear and cleaning. Have used you before and will again.

Good and solid chain. Seems durable. Chainlink works fine allthough you need to buy a chaintool to disassemble it with
Always use KMC chains for their long life and this one was a great price and in GOLD!!!
