    The hardest working chain in cycling.

    For 2015, Shimano's 105 groupset got a few high-profile upgrades. It's gone to 11-speed, and now has many of the same crankset technologies seen in Dura-Ace and Ultegra. As you'd expect, changes to the cassette and crankset also necessitate changes to the chain that connects them. Shimano designed the new SLX/105 CN-HG600 11-Speed Chain as one of the new 11-speed chains from the Japanese manufacturer. The HG600 differs from the HG900 in that it uses solid pins instead of hollow. This amounts to a weight gain of about 0.08 grams per link, but it also adds to the durable reliability of the only chain worthy of being associated with the hardworking 105 group.

    Despite its slightly higher weight, it does receive the same revolutionary new Sil-Tec ultra-low friction treatment as its more expensive sibling. Sil-Tec reduces friction dramatically while also increasing the chain's longevity and decreasing noise. Please note that while it's specifically designed for the new 11-speed 105 5800 and SLX M7000 groupsets, the CN-HG600 chain is also compatible with all of Shimano's 11-speed drivetrains.

    Unsung hero of the drivetrain

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Sure the cranks are the sexiest part of the drivetrain followed closely by the cogset but without a good chain, beauty is only skin deep. Durable and strong without a lot of hype.

    Great chain!

      The 105 group is the known as the mechanics group for a reason. Dependable, reliable, and wears well. This chain lives up to its family heritage too!
      You shouldn't have to think too much about your chain beyond keeping it clean and lubed. Easy to install with a decent chain tool. I've had great luck with the Shimano pin as well. In my experience the pin will last the life of the chain.

      Keep On spinnin!

      Bought this bad buy to replace my old Shimano 105 chain on my commuter bike. Sure it is a little heavier than some of the better chains out there but on my commuting bike i could care less. The price is right and the chain does its job well.

      I bought this after Shae( She is great) from the bike dept at backcountry recommend it as part of the parts ( Race Face Narrow Wide Chainring, Shimano XT CS-M8000 Cassette,Shimano XT RD-M8000 Rear Derailleur, Shimano XT SL-M8000 RapidFire Trigger) to convert my baby (2016 Santa Cruz Heckler) to a 1 x 11. After a 100 miles the chain is doing great. The chain is a little heavy but that was not a concern for me. I could not be happier; all done at a very reasonable price. My only regret is that i did not changed sooner to a 1 x11

      105 = Awesome

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought this chain to put on a spare frame I had laying around. I decided to go with 105 because the 105 has had a history of being Shimano's workhorse group and this 11 speed group is priced great, which leaves money for wheels or cockpit parts. Every component within the group got a good upgrade and resembles features found on the higher priced 11 speed Dura-Ace and Ultegra groups. The 105 groupset also allows for a pretty easy gear configuration if you're interested too (11/32 cassette, long cage rear derailleur & a 50/34 crank). If you're on a budget or want a group for a training bike, the 105 11-speed group is no-brainer option.

      No, I'm not inviting you to be linked into my network. But rather explaining how this chain will tie your drivetrain together.

      Now there are lots of lighter weight chains on the market. They also cost a bit more than this. So if you are looking for a reliable chain to link your cranks to your cassette this is an affordable, durable option.

      My one gripe will all Shimano chains is they don't offer an easy link, so taking your chain off to clean it can be a hassle. Other than that, this chain works well, and though it is heavier than most, it will last for a long long time.
