Just what I had expected on my new S-Works Tarmac with SRAM Etap shifting, but pricey. I like the quick fastener, but Shimano has switched to them also. Anyway, I went back to Ultegra (for the much lower price) and noticed no difference in performance. Great shifting and longevity.
Chains cost a lot less than cassettes, especially the high end ones. I change my chain three times a year (2500 miles approx. per chain) and my SRAM Red drivetrain shifts fast and quiet.
Iï¿½m using this chain on my gravel bike. I normally run a different manufacturerï¿½s chain thatï¿½s a little more expensive but seems to wear a little better.
