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

            I've been using these chains for several years now. They wear exceptionally well. I've never had an issue with one. One of the better chains you can buy for the money.

              Comments about SRAM PC-971 9SP Chain:

              Got the chain converting my old mountain bike to 9 speed (from 7!). Settled on this one since the reviews were great and because of the Powerlink. The Powerlink makes it super easy to install and take of for maintenance or other work. Can't comment on durability yet since I've only had it for a few weeks but it shifts great and I've had no problems so far.

                    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!
