Pros

This kmc chain is great the last one lasted 3. It's not a cheap chain, but it's transmitting the torque of a mid-mounted motor as well as my legs. Worth the extra money.

Quality


This is a good quality piece of kit

I know 5 months doesnt seem like a long life for a chain but with the extreme environment it sees i think its reasonable

Competitiveness


But it does come in 2 finishes from kmc and this one is less expensive and is the one that rusts corrodes faster


My only complaint is this chain is about twice as expensive as the x9 chain sold by kmc

    I am a fit bicyclist but my son has down syndrome and barely puts out any power

    On very steep hills i will gear down and add up to 750 watts to help us over the top but this amounts to less than 1 of our ride

    I installed the kmc e9 chain in march of this year and 5 months later my wear indicator said it was time to change it
