Shimano 105-5800, 11-speed, road bike chain 116L. Featuring the low friction surface treatment Sil-Tec, which is a PTFE surface coasting to reduce friction and improves durability.
The Shimano 5800 has gone 11 Speed for the latest incarnation of the 105. The 5800 has been inspired by the innovations of the more upper end Shimano Ultegra and Dura Ace; you can see the technological influences across the design of the 5800 components. More advanced and lighter than its predecessors and with a more eye catching design, the 5800 promises high performance and is one of the latest cycling must haves.
- Super narrow lightweight 11-speed HG-EV symmetrical design chain for smooth shifts and maximum durability
- Outer plate design has been developed to reduce the chance of chain suck
- Sil-Tec surface treatment technology (PTFE plating) on inner links that is smooth running and increases durability
- The inner plate has been developed for better contact with gears providing smoother shifting under high load, giving efficient pedalling, increased rigidity and near silent running
- 5.62 mm chain width, optimised for 11-speed Super Narrow HG-EV drivetrains

So far so good, over 2k km on other bike with the same chain and nothing to complain
Great quality, easy to remove excess links and connect, shifts perfectly with the 105 5800 group
Billed as a road bike chain, I've bought it as the cheapest option for my 11sp MTB drivetrain and Shimano haven't let me down.
5800 chain. Durable, affordable. Solid. What more do I need to say?

Replaced a mis matched sram chain on my ultegra 11 spd. This chain was easy to fit with spare links to carry for emergency. Runs very quiet and smooth and over half the price of the ultegra chains. Would highly recommend.
The Shimano 105 chain is perfect, easy to install, shifts well and whilst not quite as pretty as Ultegra and Dura Ace, looks good. Great value for money and a rapid response from Merlin. Thank you.
Great chain that compliments my 105 groupset. Long lasting and never have any issues. Easy to fit, and comes with a chain link which pops in and just nip off the excess with some pliers or a chain tool. Recommended.
This chain is OE on my bike and I never had any problems so going with what is currently working. Cheaper than KMC and works well? Sold.
Very little difference, if any, in performance, longevity, weight and look, between this item and the more expensive Ultegra chain. So why waste your money on the Ultagra and stick with what will do you just as well.
Great chain for the money. All the features of the ultegra in a more affordable package.
One of the advantages of 11 speed systems is that all brands compatible with each other. 5800 is the cheapest chain which is compatible with all 11 speed drivetrains.
Purchased two more to go with the one from the 5800 groupset. Now they can be rotated and cleaned easily using KMC gold links (don't like Shimano pins) which can be used more than once !! Very cheap and usual excellent service from Merlin. New chain fitted for the CW Wiltshire Wildcat Sportive.
It's a chain. It's 11 speed. It's cheap. The only thing that could be better is if it had a quick link.
Shifts great!; always alternate 3 chains every 500 miles to get maximum drivetrain life but keep the slick, smooth Shimano shifting until truly new drivetrain time! Chain would be perfect if it used a quick link adapter (available from another 11 speed chain maker) to make this rotation easier.
