Shimano HG95 10 Speed MTB Chain

The HG95 is Shimano's new XT-level chain specifically designed to work with the Dyna-Sys 10 speed MTB drivetrains and features Shimano’s new ultra-low friction surface treatment, “SIL-TEC”. Thanks to this new surface treatment, XT chains will now operate smoother with less friction resulting in less noise, requiring less maintenance with better mud shedding performance, and lasting longer than before with better wear and abrasion resistance. The new “SIL-TEC” coating paired with Shimano’s Dyna-Sys 10 speed system means closer ratios, smoother shifts, and a more stable pedal stroke. This chain is directional for maximum shifting performance, for use with Dyna-Sys cassettes only.

  • More efficient, more silent, less maintenance
  • Dyna-Sys 10-speed new ultra-low friction surface treatment “SIL-TEC” used
  • Directional chain, further evolution of shifting performance
  • Standard pin (HG95 / HG75)
  • Weight: 273g (114 links)
  • For use with 10 speed Shimano drivetrains only, will not work for Road use

This chain is well integrated into the level of performance you would expect from the XT groupset. However, as many others have said, it seems that performance is obtained at a cost, being reliability. I weight 145 lb and I do shift under load, I´m also a pedal with a lot of power. I have never had a broken a chain before until now, I normally keep my chains well lubricated and maintained, but when I first got this chain, during the first trip I broke it power pedaling. At first I thought it must have been the standard pin which wasn´t installed properly, but it happened again at a later trip. Even though I quite like it, it defeats all purposes if it brakes ramdomly. Works good, but always carry a chain remover tool, for racing I would stay away from this chain.

Shimano makes a great product. My issue is with the master link pin Shimano uses. It is difficult to determine if is seated correctly. I have had 2 chains out of several, that have separated at this link. My current solution is the use a SRAM master link to eliminate any doubts of integrity. Problem I have is that this adds an extra $5-6 cost to the chain.

    Comments about Shimano CN-HG95 10 Speed MTB Chain:

    I can't speak to the durability of the chain yet because it's only been out for 3 or 4 rides so far. No complaints so far. I recommend you Get a kmc quick link to add to this chain for quick removal on the trail.

                Installs easily with a KMC missing link. Runs smooth and is very durable. When purchased on sale at Jenson is affordable.
