If you're committed to your 9-speed setup, the KMC X9SL Chain keeps the shifting smooth mile after mile. It's lightweight construction and a Ti-nitride coating ensure you'll always have the gear you need.

KMC chains are designed with hollow link pins which help to lighten the weight of the chain. They are designed with a quick connecting link that makes replacing it easy.The outer plates of the chain have chamfered inner surfaces to ensure smooth shifting from cog to cog. This chain will save you about 40 grams over a typical XTR or SRAM 991 chain. 

The KMC X9SL Gold 9-Speed Chain uses a Ti-nitride coating to give it a superior degree of toughness and durability. And the best part of Ti-nitride? The super sweet gold finish will add some serious bling to your bike.  The KMC X9SL Chain is available in standard CP silver or Ti gold. It comes in one length which has 116 links.

Best chain ever!!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I cannot break this chain! I bought my first X9SL after destroying 2 shimano chains in the same month. This chain lasted 4 years through very aggressive trail riding. The reason I retired it is that the nitride coating was wearing off. No stretch!

I love the gold coating as well. This is one of those cases were bling and performance are wrapped up in one package.

Assembling bike after winter tear down and tune with a shiny new X9SL


Awesome CS

    I have not installed the chain as yet but in the shipment was a Nature Valley bar which was delicious 😋, that for me took into consideration the athlete. I will add to this after I use the part, Thank you competitive cyclist. Amazing.
