SRAM PCXX1 Eagle 12sp Road or Chain
The Gold (or Black) SRAM PCXX1 Eagle 12 Speed Chain weighs just 256g, and has 114 chain links. The top of the line SRAM PC-XX1 Eagle 12 Speed Chain boasts a ground-breaking design that encompasses the very best of SRAM's technologies, construction, and materials. SRAM have produced the quietest, strongest and most wear resistant chain on the market. As it is manufactured from SRAM's hard chrome material, this chain has a durability that is four times the current standards of SRAM's other chains. It provides ultimate performance by using "Flow Link" technology, which provides ultra smooth inner plates for a much quieter operation and increased durability. The links even have a Titanium Nitride coating to reduce friction and increase the durability even further. Within your SRAM Eagle drivetrain, it is the biggest contributor to ultra-smooth, quiet, precise and durable performance. It's built to last and has all the features you need to put you on top of the podium. Features: Material: Hard chrome Speed: 12-Speed Narrower Profile for 12-speed compatibility Chain connector: PowerLock (R) Technology Inner link finish: Inner link finish Chrome plated +PVD Outer link finish: Nickel+PVD Pin variant: HollowPin Pin treatment: Chrome Hardened. Chain Weight: 256g (Based On 114 Links) Technologies: PowerLock (R) : SRAM chain engineers developed PowerLock (R) as a tool free, sure, and consistent way to connect our chains. While PowerLock (R) does not require special tools for installation, the especially tight tolerances of 10-, 11- and 12-speed drivetrains mandate that each PowerLock (R) is good for a one-time application only. Flow Link: Ultra-smooth chain inner-plates are completely devoid of square edges, resulting in a chain that engages the cassette and chainring with far less friction, for quieter performance and better wear life. The design allows a narrower overall profile that can withstand greater angles, and also allows for a flatter outer-plate, which means more consistent chain riveting and enhanced overall strength Hard Chrome (TM) : The SRAM Hard Chrome (TM) chain has four times the elongation (wear) resistance to our other chains. This is due to the new finishing process on the inner links and rollers. Push pin strength and ultimate strength are equivalent to SRAM's current chains, but the Hard Chrome (TM) chain lasts longer and is just as strong.

SRAM began life in Chicago in 1987, named after it's founders Scott, Ray And Sam, and is known primarily as a manufacturer of drivetrain and braking components. It's first revolutionary product was the twist action GripShift, which became available in 1988, with the MTB version released in 1991. In 1995, they launched their first ESP rear derailleur, which featured a 1 to 1 cable actuation ratio. The X.O drivetrain products were released in 2001, marking the introduction of the trigger shifter, and a year later, MTB Suspension pioneers RockShox was acquired. A year later Avid - a MTB Disc Brake company - was also acquired, giving SRAM more market share of the MTB industry. By 2006, a focus was shifted to producing road components in addition to their MTB stable, with the launch of Force and Rival groupsets. The following year, Doubletap was introduced, enabling users to switch gear in either direct using a single shifter. This steady growth was sustained, and over the years SRAM acquired several more cycling household brands, such as Truvativ (Chainsets and components), Quarq (power meters), Sachs (drivetrain components) and Zipp (carbon fibre goodies!).
