Technologies used

In this chapter we explain the technologies that the manufacturer uses for this product.

The special HYPERGLIDE chain impresses with its higher chain holding force, improved shifting efficiency and more even transmission on rough terrain.
The increased chain holding force gives you safety on aggressive off-road driving - no more worries about chain problems. The smoother drive transmission and the improved gearshift performance encourage the driver to concentrate and make it easier to accelerate. The better chain binding ensures less wear, reduces maintenance requirements and extends the service life of the chain.

Shimano's extremely low-friction surface treatment, SIL-TEC, is a superior, modern coating process that improves system performance through the use of embedded fluorine particles. SIL-TEC products run smoother and show less wear under all conditions.
