SRAM PC-971 9 Speed Chain

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

easy install, low cost
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.

Can't be beat.
Great product. And at a mere 21 dollars, it's a steal. SRAM's Powerlink is the best I've used. I was running this chain singlespeed without a problem and now have it on two geared bikes. Shifts great, cleans easy, and set up was excellent. I see no reason to use anything else.

Another reviewer mentioned changing the cassette and chain together. While this is recommended, I installed on two different existing cassettes without issue. Both were fairly new PG990's however, so not a lot of wear. YMMV.

For reference, one drivetrain is SLX and the other is X0, this chain works fine with both.

PROS: Powerlink Is Excellent, Shifts well, Long Wearing

Great basic chain
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.

PROS: Durable

CONS: Not The Lightest Chain

BEST USES: Upgrade, Mountain Biking, Casual Riding

Easy installation
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.

An outstanding chain
There is not much to say about this chain other than it's a piece of cake to install and uninstall, and it's ultra-reliable. I've been through 3 of these with zero problems.

PROS: Attractive Design, Durable, Easy To Install
