I purchased two of them. Both for my road bike. I do not feel much difference between Shimano Ultegra and Sram PC-1110. I also like the quick link for maintenance. Keeping chain pins are the pain in the butt as well as breaking the tip after insertion, at least for my cases.
This is a top quality chain I use on all my 11 speed bikes, bought this as a spare because of the quality. Also the amazing Merlin service.
Does the job for a good price. Not as nice to look at as the chains further up the range, but works and is not much heavier. Links needed a good lube and wiggle to free up a couple of stiff ones.
Would normally have bought a more expensive SRAM chain but new road bike came with this version fitted. Was achieving nice smooth gear changes & checked weight to find it was only a few grams heavier than one double the price. Why pay more? SRAM chains are all good quality in my experience.
