Packaging/appearance


Long story short, they could work on the packaging but it is what is advertised.

Neutral Review

Inexplicable to me but that’s the packaging as of jan 2020.

Neutral Review

Competitiveness


(considering prior to switchintg to kmc i destroyed 4 more-expensive chains in one season!

Positive Review

Wish it had a few more links but decent chain for the price.

Positive Review

So i went through a bunch of other more common name-brand chains at 3x the cost, breaking links and experiencing a lot of stretch.

Neutral Review

And it's actually $1 less than the kmc z7 as of this writing for a better chain!

    Nice chain, but did not fit my old school 20 bmx chain wheel.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Anyway the link width was too narrow(tight) so the chain would not sit fully onto the teeth.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Just could not use for my bmx application.

    Lastly: i see several reviews complaining about receiving the wrong chain from amazon.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Kmc has changed their packaging and there is now no mention of the model number.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I also thought i’d received the wrong product until i checked the upc code under the bar code.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    It in fact matches the upc in the kmc product catalog.
