Sales & Trends

KMC has created a new track chain, the X101, which addressed the two most important necessities of track racing – high strength for explosive starts and kilostarts, as well as high rigidity for an efficient power transfer.

The new single speed X Series, X101, has high rigidity, allowing for efficient transfer of power from input (the rider) to output (the rear cog and wheel). KMC uses advanced heat and surface treatments to enhance the durability and hardness of the chain, to cope with extreme drivetrain energy transfer.

Therefore drivetrain impacts and premature chain elongation are avoided. KMC always has a focus on performance while keeping an eye on style. KMC combined function and style on the X101 with wider inner plates to safely avoid chain drop, lightened chain links to save weight, and X stamped outer plates to look brilliant.
