YBN Quick Release Chain Link 10 Speed
YBN Quick Release Chain Link 10 Speed
- Quick and easy joiner link for YBN 10 speed chains.
- Also works with other brands of chain.
Mr PapadimitriouHas worked as well as the KMC quick link. I've opened/closed them many times without premature failure. It has lasted as long as the chain.
TarbettQuick and easy to fit and split chain
DeetsI've always used these on all my chains - just as good as SRAM but cheaper
DomBetter than faffing with the shimano joining pins, swapping and cleaning chains much less bother with one of these
Mr ThorpMuch easier to work with than split pins, and it appears SRAM quick links.
TuckerNo brained purchase, you'll understand when you snap your chain. Always carry one
Mr HarrisVery useful trail aid and easy to join. Allows easy chain removal for cleaning.
Mike AVital component to carry (with a chain tool). Not used yet following change to 10 speed but previous experience with 9 speed suggests well worth having.
Mr WindassCheap 10 speed quick links for easy on the road repair. Not used them yet but they fit nicely in the off-cut of chain that I have.
Mr brisleyVery useful and simple to use
HarttyBrillant, works perfectly with shimano 10 speed chains.
Mr RobertsEasy to use. So much better than using the rivet on the chain.
Mr HowellsUsed these links for years, I replace with every new chain never had an issue.
Mr StoodleyMuch easier than trying to use the Shimano pin.
Mr McCreddinExcellent value.....does what it is supposed to do and reusable too. Worked fine with a Shimano chain.
Mr EdmondsSo much easier than using a pin on a shimano chain. Hassle free.
Mr KlingnerThese are an excellent product that works as intended and at an exceptional price
John LeverStill the easiest and cheapest way to join a chain - never leave home without one.
Mr CRIPPSGreat simple piece of kit at sensible price, quick and easy to fit and disconnect as long as you have a chain tool to set chain length. Also worth carrying one as a spare in tool kit incase of chain failure.
Mr GórniakI use it with shimano chain and cassette and it works very well, in my opinion better then SRAM quick release
Mr CottonI have a Shimano XT 10 speed chain and have started to always carry with me at least one of these quick links. They make the difference between potentially having to walk for many miles to find a fix, or continuing with your ride as if nothing had happened! I would definitely recommend these as you never know when your chain might snap and leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Mr WatkinsA product to make cleaning and bike maintenance easier and more effective
RossThe best way to link a chain, simple and solid
Orange DI bought two of these a couple of months ago just as emergency spares (see my previous review) & gave them five stars for quality & price. Since then I have had to use them both on my mates bikes whilst stuck in the middle of nowhere; both shimano & sram setups. These are a brilliant bit of kit for the price & that is why I've just bought two more. Five stars again.
Mr DietzWorks fine on Shimano 105 chain. Great combination
Mr geeEssential bit of kit. Haven't used it but small and portable and could be vital should my chain break far from home.
Mr jonesWorks great with shimano chains, used one kept another as a spare, easy to fit in seconds.
Chris2dhsSRAM had a real winner with Powerlinks, no need for a black pin, easy chain removal and re-fitting. Then along comes 10 speed and Powerlocks, with single use stupidity, thus negating any advantage they had over shimano. These links remedy that.
Orange DExcellent product, really good value for money. I would highly recommend these for any emergency spare kit.
Lee VanDerSlikThese little guys make chains a breeze to work with.
Mr NottinghamAlways use these links now. A doddle to open, (important if you need to do it on a ride because some are a pain without the correct tool) and they join and rejoin easily. Top product.
Bruno H HWorks as the sram and kmc ones, only for less dough... Why pay more if these get the job done??
Mr GrantEasy to install, snaps closed without fuss. Saved me on a journey where I had no chain tool. Keep a spare one sealed (to prevent rust) in my saddle bag. Parfait!
Mr ScottGreat product. Works well and is robust. Better than SRAM which locks so you cannot undo on the trail. I have used these for the last 2 years and never had a breakage.
Mr WheelerFit perfect on my shimano chain
Mr SlaterSeems to do the job fine - my chain didn't come with quicklinks, and SRAM ones aren't reusable so this seemed like a good bet. Only a couple of rides in, but so far so good. Decent price too.
Mr FernandesWorks with shimano and sram chains, very good.
Mr brewsterEasy to use, great to have with you just in case of emergencies, a must for your camelbak
Mr O HeathGreat little product, better than SRAM 10 speed Powerlocks because not being quick release they defeat the object. All in all very handy!
Mr stevensonJust the job, makes splitting chain for cleaning easy. Looks to be top quality. I kept one in the saddle bag, along with a chain splitter.
Mr bakerGreat quick replacement link for my chain, does the same job as a power link at a fraction of the cost
Mr fowlerQuick links, never leave without them. Fixing your chain has never been so simple, as the name states, "QUICK". This is the best price on the net.
Mr MarshallThe easiest way to join a broken chain. Bought too keep as spares in case out on the trail as9 and 10 speed are different sizes.
Mr BarrThese are great, cheap and seem to be strong. Only use a new one when I replace the chain.
Mr bruntGood quality link in case of emergencies
ChocoWhats to say, works with Shimano 10spd and makes chain removal & cleaning that much easier!
Mr GreavesReally good product and as always Merlin's prices cannot be beaten
Mr chappellVery good no problems fitting the link. Not problem with transmision when fitted.
Mr SalmonsIt locks, it releases, essential item when on long rides as a spare in the pack.
Mick PageSuper easy to use, why pay more...
Jay AstonWell, it works..
PaulWorks as expected.
Mr GarnettGreat value quality purchase
Mr HammondThese are the only joining links that I have successfully unjoined and rejoined repeatedly for regular chain cleaning. I also keep a couple in the pack in case of roadside chain repair. Cannot be faulted for quality or price
Mr WhitneyEssential item for your tool kit.
Mr HeynsExcellent quick release
SteveGreat item to cleam your chain after each ride.
Mr SpeckGreat little peice of kit that makes life nice and easy.
Mr WhiteSuch a small item but when needed it is the difference between a long walk home or a good day cycling. Everyone should carry a couple of theses. Not used YBN before but they look and feel well made.
Mr WrenGreat little device that allows you to remove/put back chain very quickly!
Mr HarrisThe only removable quick link I have seen for 10sp chains. More of a fiddle to remove though than the old 9sp Sachs/ SRAM system.
Mr J LansdownI run Shimano XTR chains on my MTB and have used other common known brand name connector links. The YBN brand has matched the performance of the others and is good value for money. Would I buy this again, simple - Yes.
Mr BecconsallBought as a spare link in emergencies, but looks a quality part
Mr dawsonAs always, next day arrival of items, great price and no nonsense. Merlin always sort you out!
