This Corrosion-Resistant Chain Elevates Any Ride

Noticing your bike is looking a bit worse for wear? Make sure to make an upgrade to a chain that provides you with a noticeable difference. The Shimano CN-HG40 8 Speed Chain has 116 durable links to power your ride better than ever.

New Hyperglide technology allows extreme durability and fitness to be applied to your old setup with a new wave technology. This HG power creates a slick, low-friction surface treatment for a better ride with more improved shifting ability. Because this impressive chain is compatible with 6, 7, and 8 speed systems, this speed chain is the perfect addition to any setup.

The Shimano CN-HG40 8 Speed Chain can be used with an Interactive Glide chainring, but not with IG chainrings. Made up of 116 durable links, this ultra-tough chain uses mushrooming of the pins for unsurpassed side-plate retention. This enables the chain to far exceed the BS/ISO standard for braking force.
