Wippermann ConneX 11sX Chain
The Wippermann 11sX chain sits at the top of the 11 speed range and is compatible with all 11 speed drivetrains. The solid design features stainless steel inner links with steel outer links that receive a high-grade nickel coating. The stainless inner links are nearly stretch resistant, while the nickel coating on the 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, result in a high performance drivetrain product.
The polish and finishing of the stainless links and nickel coating are world class on this professional chain. The steel pins that connect the links are extremely robust and measure in at a pin length of 5.6mm. The reliable design is easy to install and remove, and the package includes a detailed photo description and simple how-to instructions. The process is designed to be tool free, be it in the shop or on the road. The 11sX chain comes in at 118 links long and 270 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.
