Pros: Easy installation. Lightweight, solid shifting, good compatibility with Shimano / SRAM.

Cons: Poor Durability

Recommendation: I'm a clydesdale (215lbs) and snapped outer plates on two of these chains multiple times during hard effort climbs on fat bike and commuter bike. Chains showed little wear with chain tool, but links did not hold up. Would not buy if you're a masher or clydesdale.

Model/Year: X10 / 2015

Pros: Lightweight, well constructed, sheds dirt, strong, and quiet.

Cons: NONE!

Recommendation: Great chain for road or dirt. This chain won't collect a lot of dirt or mud. Just remember maintenance is key. Clean your chain every 100 miles or so and it will continue to give you great performance. I have snapped many of chains in the past and have 300 hard miles on this one already. Not one issue.

Pros: Lightweight. Durable. Comes in different colors.

Cons: None

Recommendation: If you're running a 10spd drivetrain, this is the chain you need. These will outlast any shimano chain that i have used in the past by at least a few hundred miles.
