Before launching any new model, the chains must first be thoroughly tested to withstand the highest loads in Connex's R&D plants, followed by experienced pro cyclists in extensive tests in both everyday and racing conditions.
Connex started to produce drive chains for the industry as early as 1929. Today, the Hagen-based high-tech enterprise with approx. 300 employees develops high-quality systems for drive and conveying technology and ranks among the most important producers of roller chains and sprockets worldwide.
As a successful family enterprise in its fifth generation, Connex still produces at the company’s Hagen domicile and is the global supplier of innovative high-quality products to customers.
The company dedicates the wealth of experience and know-how it has acquired over the decades and the high technological expertise to continuous research and development. Thus, new ideas for products and production processes are created which not only benefit the industrial segment but also the chain segment. Since the 1990s, the brand has successfully established itself in the accessory market for bikes.
