I've been running the XSL chains on my freeride bike for 4 years now and will keep doing so. I run a Saint 9 speed drivetrain and bought the X10SL to eliminate the side to side slop that came with running the 9 speed chain. Contrary to popular belief, I found that a 10 speed chain works better than the 9 speed on my 1X drivetrain. The shifts are more crisp and accurate. The tolerances are just much tighter and I'm cool with that.

I've used this chain in the past without issue but for some reason it does not like my current bike setup. I am running a 1x10 setup with a Wolftooth 42T expander, a Renthal 1XR ring, and an XT mid cage 10 speed derailleur. For some reason, this chain makes a grinding noise when it is under load. I can actually feel it in the pedals. It doesn't happen when I am spinning and it doesn't happen when the bike is in the stand...only under load. The bike also shifts just fine and there are no ghost shifts or anything like that...just makes noise. Noise seems to be getting better after about 100 miles but...this is an expensive chain and I like my bikes to be quiet.

      Comments about KMC X10SL 10 Speed Chain:

      I bought this chain just to try something new, I have been on Shimano chains for about a decade without complaint. Since using this KMC u found my shifting to be just as crisp, wear to be just about the same, but with a bit less weight and much better looks.

                  my friend has a chain checker and my old chain was beyond gone. he suggested this chain, since he has one. Jenson had it and on sale it took only one day to get it. I am very happy with it and the fast delivery

                  Run one on my XT equipped Anthem X29 and one my Campy Chorus Colnago. It's easy to install, omni-directional (so you don't have tho think too hard during installation). Shifts are quick and precise on both of my bikes and it is practically silent.

                  Fantastic chain.
