HG for Hyperglide+
Revamped HG chain features an extended inner link plate that connects seamlessly with new chainring tooth shape for ultra-efficient drivetrain performance. This design change reduces the vibrations normally caused by the inner and outer chain plates rolling onto the chainring, and provides better chain engagement, stronger retention, and smoother pedaling.
Benefits & Features
- Improved chain retention encourages more aggressive all-terrain riding and relieves chain-issue anxiety.
- Smoother drivetrain transmission and enhanced shifting performance sharpens riders’ concentration and improves acceleration.
- Better chain engagement cuts abrasion, reduces maintenance, and lengthens the lifespan of the chain.
Tool-free assembly for current chains provides great convenience to user.
