Shimano HG93 XT 9 Speed Chain
Hyperglide (HG) series 9-speed compatible chain, recommended for Ultegra, Deore and XT.
- HG technology has chamfered inner plates to optimise shifting performance on HG sprockets
- Durability is assured through a chromising treatment on link pins, and the heat treatment of rollers, pins, and plates
- Mushrooming of the pins gives unsurpassed side-plate retention, enabling the chain to far exceed the BS/ISO standard for breaking force
- 6.57 mm chain width, optimised for 9-speed Super Narrow HG drivetrains
- Corrosion-resistant grey finish on inner and outer plates
- Zinc-alloy silver finish on outer plates, and grey finish on inner plates increase corrosion resistance
- 114 links, 304 grams
Charles I use this chain for long distance touring and is perfect for my needs. I dont need ultra light, I need a chain that will not let me down in remote locations. Merlin prices are ausually very good.
Justin I have always used these chains and they are good and reliable
Mr Gibson The XT chain has been my preferred chain for a few years now and once on it is something I don't need to worry about. Survives my infrequent cleaning and lubrication very well. At the Merlin price it is a great investment in peace of mind every 6 months or so.
KS - Stafford Great value and good solid reliable performance.
Mr Koraska Good standard shimano 9spd chain. Comes with the connecting pin so you will need a decent chain tool.
Bailey Good chain at a fair price, skipped the Shimano link pin provided and used a 'missing link' as I have had the original supplied pins pop under stress in the past. What else to say, its a chain, I replace them every few months.
Watt Good value, easy to fit, never had a problem with them
Mr Johnson Did the job perfectly to replace a wrecked chain. Straightforward to fit with the right tool (used the Icetoolz Pro Shop Chain Tool) and I am no mechanical genius! Runs well, no problems.
Mr Crockford Great value chain that lasts well and shifts cleanly.
Mr Cunningham Bought to replace a PC991 that was noisy over my new 9spd Ultegra cassette, problem solved. Quiet drivetrain. Nice and easy to fit with the Shimano break pin.
rodmunch Shimano quality, 22 years of mashing groupsets to dust they have never let me down, this has the silver side plates which always look better than rust.
Mr Kendhammer Solid upper end work horse of the Shimano lineup
Mr Yates Smooth shifting, quiet and easy to install.
Mr foster This chain replaced a KMC that I find very good indeed (though I see people indicating KMC make Shimano's chains? ). Price was identical and more links for the wide gear system that I run. Used the Shimano joining pin as for emergencies I have KMC links and nor am I intending removing chain before its worn out. Early days but very smooth gear changes and quiet running, never had any previous issues with Shimano simply prefer KMC's installation method.
Whalley Roadie Good value for money. Used SRAM power link to join rather than the Shimano one-time-use pin.
Mr Jarvis Great experience ordering and low price. Will order from merlin again. So far the chain is working great. This is the forth one on this bike so I know I was getting a good product.
Mr Savage The chain is of the standard you would expect from Shimano and does not disappoint. Along with a new cassette it is as smooth as when I bought the bike new.
Chris James Working fine so far. Bit of a pain to install though. I just hope it lasts longer than its SRAM counterparts, which in my experience are abysmal at lasting.
Mr Steele Super slick at a great price. XT never disappoints!
Mr BARTON I've used XT chains before and IMHO they're slightly better than the SRAM equivalent. Very good price from Merlin, and quick delivery as always.
KMJ Does what it says on the tin... Good chain at a good price. Tried a few others, always ended up back with this one.
Mr O'Neill Used this chain for some years. I find it is exceptional quality, lasts well in extreme conditions and I would recommend it to all Mountain Bikers
Mr Bold Fantastic quality, great value product from Shimano. This is the second HG93 chain I've had and the previous one lasted 7 years, through all kinds of abusive mud, grit and sand. Keep it well lubed and it will last ages. Usual first class service from Merlin
Drew Great chain, I run full XT and I don't see why people choose anything else. It is affordable and shifts smooth and precise. These chains have never snapped on me and I only change them once they stretch far enough to warrant replacement. 5 stars for a great product and Merlin supplies at an unbeatable price again!
Mr Hagan Was looking to replace the chain on my winter road bike and saw this chain on Merlin Cycles website on offer. This is a nice looking and well made chain with a silver finish with enough links to cover any gear range. The only downside is the Shimano pin for fitting the chain although not a problem for me as I can use a chain tool which you will need to shorten the chain anyway, it may be a problem for those not used to this method of fitting a chain, but you can use a quick-link which has to be purchased separately.
Mr gill Run this chain on both my mountain & road bikes I have never had a problem and get good mileage before I have to renew. Measure the chain and renew when 1% streched
Mr Elliott Good product, great value, prompt delivery,
Mr Cox Shimano HG93 chain is a good no frills reliable chain
Mr Sole Excellent chain that I have never had fail. 5 stars
Mr Baumgartner This is an excellent product! Great offer!! Congratulations to Merlin for the great service and very quick delivery! Please continue with good prices in products and shipping.
Mr brown Top quality chain from shimano with the backup from merlin of fast delivery, discount at checkout & A1 customer service.
Mr atkinson Usual superb service from Merlin. All the parts you need, delivered super quick at unbeatable prices! what else can I say.
Paul Newton Don't waste your time with anything else - these are the daddy of chains - strong and light, easy to fit and you can get a good season out of one of them. What more do you want?
Fate One of the best chains, I have it on 2 bikes, used hard, - no complains. Decent chain for the reasonable price.
Mr Brooker Gret chain. lasted the course over 4 days in the lake District
Mr Allinson Good performance so far, shame Shimano don't supply with split link
Mr Kangurs Product was as expected, and faster than going to the LBS.
Mr partington cant really rate this component, its only been on the bike a few weeks.
