The Shimano Ultegra XT HG701 chain is an 11-speed chain designed for use with Shimano 11-speed drivetrains, including the Ultegra and XT groups. It features Shimano's HG-X11 asymmetric design which promotes smoother and faster shifting while reducing chain noise. The chain is also treated with Shimano's SIL-TEC surface coating for improved durability and corrosion resistance.
The Ultegra XT HG701 chain uses Shimano's CN-HG701 chain pins, which are designed to be used only with Shimano chains. It has a chain width of 5.62mm and a weight of approximately 257g. The HG-X11 design allows for both road and off-road use, making it versatile for different riding styles.
As with any bicycle chain, proper maintenance and lubrication are essential for the longevity and performance of the Shimano Ultegra XT HG701 chain. It is recommended to clean and lubricate the chain regularly to prevent wear and damage, and to replace the chain when it reaches its wear limit, which can be determined using a chain wear gauge.
