Alex Usual quality expected with Dura Ace. Didn’t realise this would come with pin not quick link which is a much better solution.
Mr Wepfer Best chain in Shimano universe. Best price with Merlin
Tim The chain is definitely one of the places where it pays to splurge on Dura Ace over lower groupsets. The chain is lighter, stronger, and rolls with less drag. Keep it clean and it will probably last longer too.
Mr Reed Merlin are always competetively priced on "bike build" componentry. The items ate not always "retail boxed" but that isn't a problem.
Mr Sheehan Shimano Dura-Ace chains are as good as any & better than most for speed & durability, and their price is more reasonable than almost any other high-end chain. And, has never let me down when far from home, so that's a bonus.
mark Have always used Dura Ace chains for 30+ years, they never break and last 5000kms
Shane Excellent chain for the perfect fit with my 9100 gruppo. Works perfectly, great price and fast delivery
mack I normally always use KMC chains, but thought I would give genuine Shimano Dura Ace a try. Very happy so far, cannot comment on durability as chain is only just running in! Only Three stars as chain did not come with the quick link only the joining pin that I do not like.
rogertr7 Great chain that I know will last for a minimum of 2500 miles with some cleaning along the way
Mr Minchin Well worth the money - quiet, fast shifting, and lasts longer than you'd expect.
Mr rosen Great value for a high quality, lightweight chain
Sang W. Joo Best chain you can get.
Mr Tosques Dura Ace quality can't go wrong with this
Mr Davenport Quickly shipped and exactly as expected
Mr Matute The perfect replacement for a worn out Ultegra chain on my 2017 Roubaix Expert. I had noticed shifts had become a little clunky and measurement with a Park Tool gauge showed that the chain was beyond .5mm of stretch. The old chain needed a chain breaker, and this chain had to be shortened somewhat, but the quicklink made assembly so much easier. I don't know why Shimano took so long getting on board with this trend, but it's so much easier to deal with. After changing the chain, shifts are quiet, precise, and pedaling is almost silent. The bonus is that the price was about $10 cheaper at Jenson USA than Amazon, LBS, or REI.
Mr Bell Fast service, chains super. 2 pins with it. Super quality. Would buy again!
Mr Kobayashi チェーンが伸びかけているので、替えに購入。梱包もしっかりしており、安心しました。また利用します。ありがとう。
Justin Ervin A solid chain, not as quiet as others but it won't do you wrong.
Mr Lam No second choice for my bike except Dura Ace Chains.
Garry Wouldn't buy anything less anymore. Have three waxed and rotating. Drivetrain is the most important part of your bike and the most expensive to replace so what's an extra $15-20 when you get a a bunch more life out of your chain?
Mr AL-Buainian Good product. Better than KMC SL ..
Mr McNamara Excellent quality, nice smooth running. Definitely worth the little bit extra cost over the Ultergra chain.
sanalytis Good quality chain. I usually get about 5000km of use out of Shimano chains.
Mr Champagne Thanks for providing such quality components. My original components lasted me three years, for a total of 16,600 miles. I would not hesitate to refer any of my friends to purchase these components. Hope this chain will last me another three years.
Mags Not much to say about a chain. Usual Dura Ace good quality to pair with Dura Ace of the 9000 series.
Mr Weekes Smooth and precise, improvement on 105 chain.
Andrew B Best chain, it's the second Dura Ace chain I've owned, they're just splendid!
Mr Rollinson Exactly as advertised. This is a great chain and works perfectly with the supplied joining pin.
Martin Nice chain. Really the only sensible choice for Shimano drivetrain. A1.
shearer Go to chain, like the way this chain shifts compared to any other chain. Great pricing too.
stephen What an incredible price for this top level chain. Edges of plates are lightly bevelled so it slides over the sprockets that little bit smoother.
Mr Warman Smooth, quiet chain when paired with DA cranks and cassette.
Mr Robert Martin My bike felt new as soon as I fitted the new chain. So silent and smooth, a great Shimano product at a very good price.
Mr Webb The best, easy to fit and now another 5000 miles of trouble free cycling!
T.D Usual Shimano Dura-ace spec. Light, durable, silent during riding and shifting gears. Would recommend highly
K Wolferstan Best chain on the market even better now they've improved the connecting pin
Munro Smooth running and keeps its nice finish for ages.
shearer Top quality shimano chain. Shifts quick and precisely. Great pricing, as always.
Jackson Better shifting than KMC chains with a Shimano group set . Price is great at Merlin Cycles even when shipping to the US. Thank you Merlin so much. Not made of money here, so your great prices and service is a blessing.
zippnut Smooth quiet and easy to install. Great all around chain.
Pipe-Wolferstan Lighter, stronger, quieter and supposedly lasts longer - time will tell. Service from Merlin up to the usual high standard - good stuff!
Mr Nelson Excellent piece of equipment. Absolutely worth the upgrade even using Ultegra bits everywhere else.
Mr Munro I can feel the difference on my 5800 set up with a Dura Ace chain - runs smoother, quieter and shifts 'nicer'.
Austin Very high quality chain and so simple to install, easier by far than Campag due to the pin not needing a special fitting tool. Shifting is light and smooth, and the chain is a competitive weight.
Mr Loyd I typically run Ultegra components, although for the cost the Dura Ace chain is hard to beat.
Ginsterdrz Long lasting, reliable, smooth shifting chain at a bargain price.
Mr baker Great quality chain. Change them at 75% wear and cassettes will last for ages.
dreyer Love this chain, I run full Dura Ace gruppo on my bike so only the best chain will do. Shifts beautifully and nice and light weight too.
Mr bianchi Best chain in the market, I love this thing.
Mr Britten Great chain, very durable, very light. Never broken one yet
Mr aljaber Great improvement over the 6800/7900. I get around 3500km out of it.
Mr Murphy Smooth running, Shimanos best yet
Mr JAMILOSA Probably the best chain in the market!
Mr Munro As there is not much difference in price it is always nice to have a bit of Dura Ace on the bike. There is a small but noticeable improvement on my 5800 105 shifting - smoother moving across the cassette. Also the higher grade metals and coating means the chain cleans up nicer than the 105 one - it is not as susceptible to corrosion.
Mr Jerham Perfect smooth gear changes, great lifetime and dead reliable why buy anything else !!
Mr He Works great even on sram gears and never have I had the slightest issue with the chainset. Virtually silent noise and no flex whatsoever.
Greg D. About 250mi on this chain and so far I'm happy with it. I got very good mileage out of the 10-speed chain so I'm hoping for similar performance with the 11-speed. When combined with the 9070 Di2 Groupset shifting is precise, crisp and fairly quiet.
Mr Han Love this chain! Light, quiet, smooth and Merlin's price was just too great!
Hersh Quiet, smooth running
Mr Marshall Smooth shifting - usual DA quality.
Mr Makrypoulias Very light and more quiet than 7900 chain
Matt Great chain, very durable and runs very smoothly.
Mr Wade Good, reliable chain. Not that expensive, run them on all my bikes.
Mr hebert Bought this chain for my 10 sp Sram Red and it works great and is lighter then the 10 sp Dura Ace chain I've been using.
Mr Osman Nice light weight chain and very smooth
Mr Munro Seems very slick and no longer need to worry about the direction of installation.
Mr Chappell Quieter than the older 7900 chain. No longer one directional. Good price too.
Mr Partridge Nice chain and a very good price. I have this running with a Shimano 9000 chainset a 7900 10 speed cassette and ultegra 6700 rear mech with no issues.
TheOCCyclist These chains are fantastic, primarily due to their light weight and absolutely crisp shifting when paired with a properly tuned Dura Ace drive train. I use these on both my DA9000 and DA7800 bikes and it works like a charm. Only misstep is the longevity of the chain. Look to replace these every 1200 miles, max.
Mr Avery Good weight saving.
