Strengths:    Keeps shifting well and has been pain free over 18 mths of long weekend trail rides.

Weaknesses:    I was alternating two of these chains and in race conditions I kept snapping them. Twice each. Just don't seem durable under trying conditions.

Bottom Line:   
It's great until you really put the power on, then it has a tendency to snap!

Strengths:    Corrosion resistant, easy to open up and clean, fairly light.

Weaknesses:    Expensive compared to other makes, chain snapped during a tech ride (not at the Power Link though).

Bottom Line:   
It is a nice chain even though it broke on me. But then I had similar experience with Shimano's chains too. I rate 3 chilis on it for durability (value)and 4 chilis on overall as it is one of the nicer chains around.

Strengths:    Minimal wear, seems to shift pretty well.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This chain has provided good reliable service over the last six months of dealing with riding in abrasive sand and dealing with a first time rider doing some pretty scary shifts. The chain is now showing minimal wear so I have shifted it onto a bike I use for wind training. Have just bought a new Shimano CN-7701 (XTR chain) which appears to shift slightly better - but then I am comparing a new chain with one that has had six months wear and tear.

Strengths:    Easy to fit and take apart

Weaknesses:    It WILL snap.

Bottom Line:   
It'll probably snap at the powerlink if you weigh more than a small child (a slim one). Mine went after about 2 months of XC riding on a new XT chainset that was cleaned after every ride. I'd had a stock Shimano jobbie on for over a year of heavy XC abuse in all conditions without any problems. Buy a normal chain, and put up with cleaning it on your bike.
