Dewey T.wrote a review of Shimano XTR/Dura-Ace CN-HG901 11-Speed Chain on November 10, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Although Shimano chains wear well and are light, I always preferred the quick-link offered by Sram and KMC. With a link tool, you can easily take the chain on/off the bike to clean or maintain it. The Shimano pins worked well but taking the chain off the bike isn't nearly as convenient.
