    Strengths:    None, broke to easy.

    Weaknesses:    The weakness is they are weak. lasted only a couple of hours at lysterfield.

    Bottom Line:   
    Buy a SRAM or SHIMANO CHAIN it will save you from walking. KMC haven't made good chain for a while in my opinion. This chain only lasted a couple of hours, no chain has ever done that to me before, no matter the qaulity or conditions. Came on the bike so if it comes on yours have it replaced ASAP.

    Strengths:    none

    Weaknesses:    i got my ibex ignition super 1 day ago this was the chain it came with, the day after i got it i went for a very easy warm up ride on a local atv trail, when completely unprovoked one of the links came undone, got caught on my deraillure and ripped it clean off

    Bottom Line:   
    I have never had a chain brake on me before, the chain was brand new and i wasnt doing any jumps, drops, or trying to go 40 mph, just easy riding. It was completely idiotic, that after 48 hrs with a thousand dollar brand new bike that I would have to pay 50 dollars to take it to my LBS just because my F***ing chain decided to brake!

    Bottom Line:   
    The previous posted complained of it being weak - I've never seen a stronger chain. I hammer mine and with all the sand and gunk that gets in it at Woodhill it should be toast but it just keeps on going. Value compared to Shimano.

    Weaknesses:    About as strong as Dental Floss

    Bottom Line:   
    The chain came with the bike -- brand new -- two rides in and a rivet buckled on a rock and snapped. The chain has snapped twice since then... and not only that but proved v. difficult to fix on the trail... not at all impressed!

    Just replaced it with an SRAM 69 ...
