KMC MZ9000 / X9.93 9SP Chain

The venerable KMC Z9000 (often supplied as original equipment on many complete bikes in the $1,000 - $2,000 range) is now the KMC X9.93. Its been upgraded with a new stretch-resistant design for long life.

With "Bulls-Eye" pin riveting and heat-treated construction, these put the "S" brands to shame in "bang for the buck".

Compatible with all popular 9 speed drivetrains (Shimano, SRAM, Campagnolo)

  • Chain Compatibility: 9-Speed
  • Weight: 235 g
  • Width: 6.6 mm
  • Links: 116 links

Updated Chain - Not same as old reviews
This is not the same chain as many of the (not so positive) reviews have rated it. This chain used to be the old Z9000 series, but was updated into the 9.93 chain. The biggest difference is the sideplates have been redesigned and are now zinc coated. The inner plates also have a new coating than the previous version. And finally, the pins are new. Oh, and it now comes with a removable missing link, for easy removal for cleaning.

That said, here's the pros and cons: Is it the lightest chain available? Absolutely not. Is it compatible with Shimano and SRAM 9spd? Yes it is. Does it last? In my experience, it lasts every bit as good as the low-end version from the two big S brands (Shimano HG-93 and SRAM 951). While I admire the Shimano chains for their excellent shifting and low tendency to break, they stretch faster than any of the others. Stretching is the #1 cause of drivetrain wear, because as the links get longer, the chain 'rides up' on the sprocket teeth and wear them thinner.

The price point is there with this chain. You could buy two for an equivalent premium model chain from the big S brands and change them out quicker. Meaning, not only will you get more life than having bought one premium chain, but by installing the second chain halfway through, you'll cause far less wear to your drivetrain.

PROS: Cheap, Compatible, Easy to Use

CONS: Heavy

BEST USES: Sprinting, Avid Cycling, Casual Riding, Commuting

No complaints, fine chain
I needed a new chain, and this one worked. It's actually been through a bit of hell, with a bent rear derailleur and a snapped hanger at one point that lead to some sketchy shifting and tension. I fixed all that, and tested the chain out, and it's still as good as new, and working very well. I've got no complaints.

PROS: Affordable, Smooth, Chain

BEST USES: XC, Trail

Based on my experience, I will not be buying another KMC chain. It shifts okay and thankfully hasn't broken, but is wearing too quickly. I'll probably buy another Shimano chain.

Chain broke within first hour of use while just biking down the road. Worst Chain Ever... If your new bike has one, replace it now and save yourself a ton of trouble.

As the JensonUSA description says this chain does put the "S" brands to shame. This chain works really well, best chain i've ever used. My friend and I both got new chains and I got this chain and he got a Shimano XT chain and right after putting it on his bike and riding it broke for no reason, he ended up getting this chain.

This chain has lasted for over 1 year without any problems. I ride an average of about 4 miles a day riding back and forth to work, so I've put this chain through its paces between riding to work and the occasional race or friendly trail ride.

kmc chains rock
Kmc has become my favorite chain. These chains wear out sliver than the shimano and sram. Missing link connector makes this the easiest chain to install also. You can not go wrong buying a kmc chain!!

Great Chain!
I bought this to use on a 2x7 setup with 9 speed chain rings. The 8 speed chain rubbed the large ring a bit in certain gear combinations, and the 9 speed chain solved the issue. It shifts very smooth, and the KMC missing ling is great.
