The venerable SRAM PC-971 chain is a great choice for riders using Shimano XT, LX/SLX, or SRAM X.9 level drivetrains (and will also work with any 9 speed setup that might be higher or lower-end).

Like the PC-991, the PC-971 features inner and outer plate designs that offer faster and more accurate shifting at an affordable price point.
  • Nickel-plated outer, gray inner plates
  • Includes 1 Gold Powerlink, making the initial install (and future removal for cleaning) very easy
  • For use with 9 speed SRAM/Shimano or other Shimano-compatible cassettes
  • claimed weight: 298 grams
  • 114 Links

Works great, but only install it with a new cassette so they wear together. Have not had a chain pin come out yet in many hundreds of miles. Have had no chain snap. I will buy this product again, and have. I have used the 970, the 950, and the 990 and really see no performance difference -- they all work well. I like shiny nickel plating because it looks nice and is easier to clean, so 970 rocks.

The chain, alas, wears out when old, and you have to replace both the cassette and chain when replacing it, or the new chain will skip. This generally occurs if the cassette has over 500 miles (Mt. Bike). So don't buy this chain and put it on some ancient hardtail without replacing the cassette or you will at least have a noisy drive train, or worse, but this is true of any new chain on an old bike.

This may be ok for 9-speed use, but not nearly strong enough for single speeding. After not breaking a single chain in 30+ years of serious riding and 10 years of single speeding, I have broken two of these within a year, each with less than 1000 miles on them.

            Hope it's better than the 951 I have had those break. I haven't installed it yet so I can't attest to its function or durability. But sram chains shift pretty good in my experience.

              Use this chain on my road bike the Powerlink makes it super easy to install this and Jenson's great price makes this my chain of choice I watch the chain and I am finding my chain checker says it is time to change at 1000-1100 miles. I am about to put on my third chain hopefully I have changed chains quick enough to avoid changing the cassette which costs quite a bit more.

                Went from a Shimano chain to this new SRAM chain. As I am definitely not mechanically inclined to wrench on my own bikes, I love the PowerLink feature of the SRAM chain. Haven't put too many miles on the new chain yet, but installation was a breeze and so far everything's shifting nice and crisply.

                  I rock PC-971 chains all day long on my bike. Have done so since I got into mountain biking 10 years ago. Best blend of strength, durability, and weight for riding up mountains then shredding down them. Double fist pump in the air, oh yea!

                    This is the replacement chain I get once a year-I ride in dusty dry Phoenix, and while I do keep the chain clean and lubed, wear and tear neccesitates changing a chain once a year. The difference in shifting is always noticeable. Good chain good price
