Wippermann ConneX 10s1 Chain
The 10s1 chain serves up every feature and technology in the Wippermann arsenal to offer what many consider to be the best 10 speed chain available. The stainless steel inner and outer links are durable and stretch resistant. The stainless outer links also receive a high-grade electroless nickel coating for added corrosion protection. The chain links are connected with polished hollow steel pins for a large weight reduction of 15 grams. All of the latest Wippermann's technologies are in play, including, Speed Wing plate design and Diamond Shape chamfering for quick and reliable drivetrain performance.
The finishing of the stainless links and nickel coating are professional grade, while the hollow steel pins that connect the links are strong and measure in at a standard pin length of 5.9mm. The chain is connected by the classic Connex link, which 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 10s1 chain comes in at 114 links long and 249 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 top choice for many service center, teams and riders.
