Keep it together.

Shimano's Shimano HG701 Ultegra/XT 11-Speed Chain uses an asymmetrical plate design and a SIL-TEC coating to produce a chain that ekes out the highest performance from your 11-speed groupset. The SIL-TEC ultra-low friction plating on the links and rollers makes for a quieter, longer-lasting chain that also sheds mud 30% better than normal zinc-nickel plated chains.

Claimed average weight is 257 g for 114 links.

 

Chain Application: 11-Speed

Got a noisy one

Usually happy with Shimano and especially Ultegra, but this time I got a very noisy chain. (Yes, it was on the right direction.) It sounded like it was always rubbing the front derailleur, but it wasn't. After trying different lubes and fiddling with it, I noticed that the chain would jump on both of the front chainrings, and in several different places along the chain (i.e., not just a quicklink problem). I suppose I could have worked each link independently to find the culprits and see if I would get them to loosen up, but I just replaced it with a Sram, and now the bike is quiet as a mouse. Guess I just got a bad one.

Tough little chain

I'm a big boy (245 lbs) and usually ate at least one chain per season if not two with Ultegra 10 spd chains. After upgrading to 11 spd Ultegra and chains I now get about a year and a half to two years from the newer Shimano 11 spd chains. Articles suggest using these chains for 10 spd drivetrains as well because of their superior construction, materials, and longevity.

The durability of the UltegraXT chain stands the test of hundreds of high torque elevation climbs on my Diverge, it's smooth and superb on my gear changes. Bravo

Excellent chain for Shimano 11 speed
rating

High quality chain for your Shimano 11 speed drivetrain. Lasts well and smooth shifting. Almost as good as the Dura Ace for less money. Though watch the Dura Ace chain prices. Sometimes the price between the Ultegra and the Dura Ace chains is very close if Western Bike Works has a sale on the the Dura Ace. They're both fine chains, the Dura Ace is just that little bit nicer.

I like the smoothness, durability, and price of Shimano Ultegra chains. This one came with a quick link instead of a breakaway pin. Once I figured out how to install it, it was easier than the pin. You don't need the pliers. Just line up the link, and put pressure on the cranks to snap it into place.

Nice shifting chain. Quite expensive. Of course, how many choices do you have in 11 speed chains? Here in Portland Oregon ,expect about 2000 miles wear in the summer. Much less in the winter if you ride in all conditions. We have highly abrasive grit locally, so expect better wear in more benign environments.

Just put this new chain on. It uses a quick link instead of the old pin technology. That seemed to simplify installation for me.

I'll definitely pick this chain for my the replacement on another bike.

I especially like the quick link to join the chain ends after sizing. Its not reusable (per Shimano) but it seems to be more foolproof than using a pin like older models required.

Ill use this chain when I need a replacement too.
