Shimano HG54 Deore 10 Speed HGX Chain
Shimano HG54 Chain, Deore quality, 10 speed compatable
- Hyperglide (HG-X) series 10-speed directional Dyna-Sys compatible chain for use with 10-speed MTB drivetrains
- HG-X Chain uses a directional design with specifically shaped inner and outer plates to optimise shifting over the chainset and cassette
- Outer plate design has been developed to reduce the chance of chain suck
- 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
- Durability is assured through a chromising treatment on link pins, and the heat treatment of rollers, pins, and plates
- Open design of inner links increase mud shedding ability
- Mushrooming of the pins gives unsurpassed side-plate retention, enabling the chain to far exceed the BS/ISO standard for breaking force
- Chain is optimised for Shimano 10-speed HG-X MTB drivetrains only
- Corrosion-resistant grey finish on inner and outer plates
LC Going back to Shimano after trying KMC as it was noisier. As chains are a consumables, having to be replaced every 6 months, I just went with HG54 instead of HG95. Merlin prices are always competitive.
Loren I've been running the HG54 for years on my MTB. I recently had the chance to upgrade my fat bike, and at the price, and based off past performance, I opted for another Shimano chain. In the last few rides this chain has performed just exactly as I have come to expect from mid-level Shimano components. Great product at a reasonable price.
Myron Works faultlessly with my 7800 duraace groupset. Great buy.
Dmitri Bought this to convert the bike from 3X8 to 2X10. So far, I've replaced the rear end (10 speed cassette + rear mech) but left the front end intact (3 chainrings). This chain seems to work just fine in such a setup.
Mr Partington Would have been a lot better with a split link but still a very strong durable chain
Mayne Works perfectly and a doddle to fit.
Mr ROQUE No slip or slaps. Great buy
Edgeworth Silent operation, does the job very well. Highly recommend as its such a cheap price. Couldn't be happier :) made my budget 1x10 speed conversion much cheaper.
Shires Does the job, no real world difference to the XT chains I have used in the past.
Velottante Fits the Deore cassette nicely & shifts smoothly. Another good value piece of kit from Shimano
Iggy Excellent economical chain!!!
Le Jordi Cheap as chips. Not noticed any difference in performance between this and more expensive chains and I can live with the increase in weight. Just removed all the rubbish from my Camelbak to compensate.
Mr jones Quality chain as always from shimano, and YBN link fits perfect
Mr Hawker-Yates Great value, lightweight, doesn't come with quicklinks though hence the dropped star.
Mr Mendes Very good chain
Mr black Great chains & well priced. But don't forget to also buy the connector pin which isn't included. Will buy from again Fast Delivery.
Mr Tracey Seems the same performance as the XT so worth replacing regularly to preserve the more expensive cassette and chainrings.
Mr Barratt Service I cannot fault. Ordered the previous afternoon and it arrived next morning. Fantastic. Excellent price for this chain. The best on the web.
