Chains | Product code: 00.2518.005.003 | ID: 388598
The SRAM RED 22 chain features more heavily chamfered outer plates for improved shifting and quieter running. Other advancements include a inner plate finish plus chrome hardened pin construction, both for longer chain life. The HollowPin construction of SRAM's 11-speed chain provides smooth, precise shifting and weight savings without sacrificing strength.
SRAM chain engineers developed PowerLock as a tool free, sure, and consistent way to connect chains. While PL does not require special tools for install, the especially tight tolerances of 10- and 11-speed drivetrains mandate that each PowerLock is good for a one-time application only.
SRAM employs HollowPin construction on all its top of the line PowerChains. HollowPin yields plate retention strength, front and rear shifting efficiency, and low weight benchmarks unreachable in solid pin chain applications.
