Connex 11-speed chains are perfectly suited for the latest generation of shifting systems, which are used in state-of-the-art mountain bikes or road bikes for example. The Connex11sX top model with stainless steel inner links provides maximum wear resistance.
Speed Wing, the innovative outer plate, ensures particularly rapid and silent shifting on Connex 11-speed chains. The newly developed peripheral chamfering of the outer plate ensures optimum chain guide and gear-changing performance. And for optimal absorption of the high shear forces through extreme transmission, Connex have implemented a completely innovative process for radial riveting. This process, in combination with a special pin coating, guarantees top performance and long wear.
Mr Waymouththe best
Mr KoepkeI've always been impressed with this brand. Strong, elegant and seem to last forever.
Mr Arcillalightest chain and most precise shifting
HaemonMy 2nd order from MC and that justifies the shift quality, durability and its attention to chain detail of Connex 11sX. As always, Merlin’s signature fast shipping and quality customer service earns my business with them. Great job MC.
Ollie WHigh-end chain, (supposedly the best there is) which I bought to replace an HG-701 XT Shimano for my full XT groupset, which has an 11-46T and a 30T chainring. After about 3000 miles the XT was quite slack and needed constant lubrication. The Wipperman SX is very well finished and is immediately noticeably silent. It has a clear shine to it and shifts like butter over the cogs. This translates to a very solid connected feeling when pushing hard and ultimately I'm very happy that this chain will most probably outlast the Shimano by far and continue to look good also.
SteveRChains look great. I bought two chains as I've started waxing and looking forward to having the Connex quick link
Mr LutenerHaving read the reviews, I decided to give one of these a go. I have recently changed to waxing instead of oiling chain - and this chain and especially it's link are ideal. Having waxed, then installed on the bike, the ease of fitting the link does not inspire confidence, because I am used to having to use tools and then to give a good hard stamp on the pedal to properly engage. But this just slides together so easily. I went out on a ride intending to stay close to home and had a spare link in pocket just in case. But - phenomenal. Slightly noisy at first whilst the wax bedded in, but by end of ride - so smooth and quiet. And did the link let me down? No. Cannot work out how it works - but it just does.
Sergei aus MoskauA brilliant product that basically has no competitors. A+ durability and performance for its value, not to mention the famous quick-link that requires no tools to (dis)connect. Extremely handy for those who often switch their bikes between trainer/road or waxing chains.
Mr CampbellExcellent chain with a joining link which can be detached by hand.
Mr CurranBuying again, becasue it really does last significantly longer than the top quality Shimano and Sram chains I have used before.. Extra life more than extra cost.
Mrs SAUVAGEAUvery good chain
Mr BourneThis is the best chain that I have ever used. I've used Shimano , KMC, and Campagnolo. All 11-speed, top shelf chains. I use Smoove chain lube after trying Boeshield T-9, Rock 'N' Roll Gold, Chain-L, Dumonde (blue and yellow), and others that I can't remember. The 11SX is smooth, quiet, shifts well, and I expect will last 7,500 miles with Smoove. I normally get 2,500 miles from other chains. And Campy was so noisy I gave it away! My drive train is Shimano; maybe that's why!
HaemonLooks great on my Ti bike, crisp silent shifting too.
Dr panyavaranantConnex is good in general and the lightweight version even feels better.
LeslieBest chain money can buy. On time and very good price, thank you.
Mr Gen KaI have a good experience with these chains. I use it with 105 11S. Excellent switching, silence .... I use 3 chains in a circle, I ride 70% flat. 3 chains and one cassette, with lubrication every 200-300 km, I have enough for 15-17K. Thank you Merlin for a good price and excellent customer service !!!
Brian JonesMy reason behind buying this chain was the many reviews that stated this was probably the best chain for a silent drivetrain and had the added benefit of a hands only chain link for easy removal. I regularly remove my chain and have recently started using hot wax (with additives) instead of regular chain lubes. This chain has proved to be exactly as the reviews all stated. Great quality chain, feels more solid than Campagnolo, Shimano and SRAM chains. Now I have it installed and is smooth, silent and clean. Price from Merlin is the best so will be buying a couple more so I can rotate 3 or 4 chains as the wax wears.
AnthThe quality of material and finish in this chain is a step apart from the Shimano and Sram. Shifting is as good as the XTR/Dura Ace equivalents... will wait and see on durability. The link is the very best in the business, the fact it is so easy to remove and reconnect a chain is in itself worth the extra money.
WalSecond chain - bought as a spare when one in use is worn out. Easy to fit and with the Shimano 105 set up, chain works perfectly. While more expensive than other brands, I do like the fact that the connecting link is reusable. 600kms and no sign of wear, so I expect to get about a year's riding out of it (7000kms).
Mr SalafiaExactly what I ordered, quick delivery to Australia, first 50km of use no problems. Removable link comes with chain and fantastic to use, it is very easy to remove and install with little effort required. I think the chain and link is a very good quality and durable item and would recommend to anyone. Just be aware the removable link is directional.
