If you're building up your new dream machine to run on any of SRAM's new 11-speed drivetrains, don't just scrounge up a chain from your garage to throw on your bike. Make sure your shifting stays smooth and precise within your new, wider gear range with the SRAM PC-Red 22 Chain, developed specifically for SRAM's new 11-speed drivetrains. In addition to being burly enough to handle more acute angles from bigger 11-speed cassettes and chainrings, the PC-Red 22 is impressively light, with hollow link pins and a lean, narrowed shape, and it comes with SRAM's PowerLube grease to keep things running smoothly for miles.
SRAM keeps installation pretty straightforward with the PC-Red 22, including a strong, durable PowerLock connecting link that you can set up tool-free. Please note that installing the PowerLock link tool-free can only be done once, so if you end up having to break a chain later on for maintenance, you'll need to grab an entirely new PowerLock link before you can set your chain back up.
