A bicycle is only as good as its chain: it’s the link between human power and forward motion. Yet surprisingly few high-end equipment users are aware of the enhanced shifting precision, reduced wear on expensive drivetrain components and the extended chain life offered by a top quality chain.

Be it mountain bike riding over rough terrain, leading the peloton on a racing bike, or en route with a trekking bike – with a Connex bicycle chain, gear changing will always be effortless, quick, and precise. 

Connex chains are precision made in Germany from selected high-quality materials to withstand enormous strain with minimal wear.  Each Connex chain comes with a Connex connector that can be easily assembled and disassembled in seconds – for most systems this is a tool-free process. (A spare Connex connecter is a must for any saddle bag - whatever chain you use)

Connex chains are compatible with the corresponding drive systems from Shimano, Sram, and Campagnolo.

So how are Connex chains so strong and last so long? Tom Petrie explains;
