But already in the advanced stage you will find only the ingenious invention of the chain type. Not only the optimized abrasion is an advantage, by the shorter limbs I have with the already mostly very short dropouts better adjustment. And time is of course not stand still but on the contrary, the brains of the manufacturers are in full swing, so it is not surprising that Shadow has recently already perfect introduced a newer version of your BMX chain on the Interbike trade show in Las Vegas.

The special feature of this chain be this will be the members of forged links is. One hopes that the new development for even greater durability, especially while grinding where chains are now exposed to very high forces.
