High Quality Chain worth the price.

I have run the connex 908 and have been able to get 30% more life than the shimano chain that came with the bike. Same riding conditions (wet, muddy, dry, dusty), same lube (dumond), and cleaning every other ride.

Every chain going on the mt bikes will be this one.

Comes with an easy to use quick connect link too!

Pros: No rust, long running life.

Cons: Costs more.

Best Chain, Best Connection

I used to use SRAM exclusively, and then I discovered UC and decided to try the Wippermann.

It is great, the connex is fantastic.

German engineering at its best.

Pros: Durable and easy to use

Cons: connex connectors are not available everywhere, best to carry spares.

Wipperman makes the best chains. The 908 isn't the best they make, but it's still a really reliable product that is easy to clean. My favorite manufacturer. If you're going to buy a chain, buy a Wipperman - they are reliable.

Pros: Easy to clean
Durable

Cons: Not cheap

Love these chains for their price/weight and durability. No problems yet, and we've used a number of them on XC and road applications.

Great Chain

This and all other connex chains are my "go to" chains. My commuter bike and mountain bike are both equipped with connex chains. I don't have a car and get everywhere by bike, so I put on some heavy mileage on these chains. Never had a failure. The quicklink is fairly easy to put together and take apart also.

nice chain, but leaks rust

I am huge on chain maintenance. But this chain wouldn't stop leaking rust. The NI plating shouldn't be hard to get even but they failed somehow. I actually prefer their link to sram, but after snapping a few 990 chains, I went back to a 990 cross step no rust and its held up in the same sections that broke the regular chains. And no rust. I use pedros in a chain machine every post ride due to the sandy conditions. I use rocknroll (blue). My chain always looks very new. Except this one which would rust between rides and even stained my xg999 cassette

Pros: tough
nice link

Cons: rust, only thing on my bike that could/did

I really wanted to like this chain but have gone back to Sram chains. I found this chain to be loud, shift poorly and wear quickly.

Pros: Connex link

Cons: Wore out quickly

Reliable, easy to install

Love the connecting link in the Connex chains versus SRAM equivalent. Quiet and dependable

Pros: Does the job without fail. Superior system for its connecting link

Cons: Costs a bit more, but is worth it
