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

      Comments about SRAM PC-971 9SP Chain:

      I've bounced around Shimano and Sram product lines since about 1990 or so using chains (Sachs chains), shifters and cassettes from both brands. The Powerlink is awesome and I keep a couple of old ones in the pack. Also, Sram chains don't require special pins, so you can break the chain and use the pin you just extracted. The 971 is a very tough chain lasting me a thousand miles or more without breaking, where my Shimano XTs were breaking after just a couple hundred miles. The 971 is a great compromise between the lightness of the 991 and the sturdiness of the 951. Works great with Shimano cassettes, too!

            Strong, solid chain. Works with my 3x9 setup just fine. Remember not to pop the pins out all the way when sizing the chain to your bike!

                Ive been using these chains for my bikes and my buddies' bikes for like 2 years. they're cheap and work really well. shifting is nice with a new chain so i replace mine fairly often.

                  Install with the powerlink was a breeze, powerlink also makes cleaning a snap, take off the chain, soak it, clean it, lube it, slap it back on. You cant beat the price and I've beat it to heck without incident. I would never buy a chain without a Powerlink again.

                  I'm typically a Shimano fan. I've had durability issues with SRAM chains and have been using Shim XTR chains. I've found , Shim chains to work great with their cassettes but slow shifts with a SRAM cassette. I bought one of these chains and was surprised how well it shifts with Shims and SRAM cassettes. I've only had this chain since the beginning of the season. Been beating the snot out of it and still haven't broken a link yet. Good chain, good, price. I'm impressed

                  Lighter and smooth but mine was too short out of the box even at 116 links it was 4 inches too short. They sent me a whole new chain free of charge free shipping. Its a much smoother and quieter chain than the stock. It maybe possible to run an 8spd chain on 9spd set, but the width and weight is worth it not to mention no chain noises.

                  This is a great mid range chain. Not the lightest out there, but reasonable. I also have found them to last as long or longer than the nearest competitors. Also I have never broken one of these. I can't say that about the others.
