Wippermann ConneX 10sX Chain
The Wippermann 10sX chain features stainless steel inner links and steel outer links that get a high-grade nickel coating. The stainless inner links are nearly stretch resistant, while the nickel coated steel outer links do a great job of preventing corrosion. The combination of these quality materials and construction, paired with Wippermann's Speed Wing plate design and Diamond Shape chamfering, results in a great choice to upgrade and replace your current 10 speed chain.
The polish and finishing of the stainless links and nickel coating are superb. The steel pins that connect the links are extremely robust and measure in at a standard pin length of 5.9mm. The chain is connected by the proven Connex link and is easy to install by hand. Wippermann provides a detailed photo description on how to do it in the box and online. Removal is also designed to be tool free, in the shop or on the road. Simple practice at install will make field action much less stressful. The 10sX chain comes in at 118 links long and 264 grams including the ConneX connecting link.
When comparing Wippermann to the competition, three basic design details help distinguish these innovative chains to stand apart. The proprietary Speed Wing profiling on outer plates increase both the speed and the accuracy of each shift, while the Diamond Shape chamfering allow the chain to glide up and down the cassettes and chainring ramps with ease. Power Pin technology give each chain pin a radial riveting inset, to produce an extremely wear-resistant surface for much improved wear times and increased strength. With these proven technologies combined with high quality materials and craftsmanship and the clever Connex connecting link, it becomes easy to see why Wippermann is a choice for many seasoned riders.
