    Replacement for Shimano HG601

    Needed a new chain to "hot wax" and this upgrade to my old HG601 fit the bill. I was really surprised and happy when the 30-day price guarantee kicked in and BTD credited the balance to my account!

    Always have a fresh, waxed quality chain ready!

    The Shimano's CN-HG701 11 Speed XT/Ultegra Chains are flawless on the electronic shifting drivetrains. I routinely clean and then hot wax all my chains. They�re whisper quiet, the entire drivetrain stays clean as a whistle, and I keep several chains cleaned, waxed, and ready to go. Having several chains saves time as I can quickly clean and wax several chains at once, and no dirty chain lube products on me, or my bike!

    Arrived quickly in good order

    Purchased to replace Shimano Ultegra 11speed road bike chain. It arrived in good order and is working perfectly. Installation is in a specific orientation so chain engraved notations are facing outward. A chain break tool is required to remove links and properly size the chain by pushing out a link pin. Requires a surprising amount of force. Reconnecting using the supplied quick link which adds two link pins. In my case 112 total links = 110 plus two from quick link reconnection.

    Genuine Shimano, no worries about fake chains

    During covid when parts were hard to come by I was a victim of a fake chain bought on eBay . No worries of any fakes on BTD.

    The standard for quality

    The ratio of longevity to weight can't be topped. I wax my chains, ride about 150 miles per week, and these never seem to wear out. Even if you happen to have a DuraAce groupset, I would use this chain.

    Works well.

    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.

    Out of spec out of the box, reached 0.75% after 742 miles.

    This chain came out of the box with 0.5% chain wear and hit 0.75% after just 742 miles.

    I suspect that some of these chains are counterfeit.

    Smooth shifting and durable

    I just can't find a better chain than this for my Shimano 105 set-up. I ride mostly gravel and this chain hold up to constant sandstone and limestone gravel roads. I ride about 4000 miles annually, and go through 3-4 chains/year.

    Way better than KMC

    I put a KMC on my Gravel bike and it only lasted a couple hundred miles before it was stretched out. The Shimano has held up quite a bit better.

    Good chain, better when on sale!

    Have never had any issues with Shimano chains, and this one is no exception. Got this for my friend's bike that I tuned up for him. Really like that it comes with a quick link, as I always order a KMC link to go with the 10-spd ultegra chain for my bike if it happens to be on sale. Not sure if it's just in my head, but I feel like Shimano chains run just a little quieter than KMC, but shifting performance and longevity are very similar, so I tend to go with KMC more often simply due to price, but I like grabbing Shimano occasionally when they have a good deal going.

    0.5% Chain wear out of the box

    I urge you to check your chain with a chain wear tool before you install it. I�ve had several new Shimano chains arrive with 2/3 of their wear already present (0.5%) in the new chain. The KMC chains I have bought arrived with 0% wear.

    Shimano chain. Always good

    Been using Shimano chains for the past 20 years. 9spd, 10spd, 11spd. They work fine. Don't last forever, but they work fine. Now it's nice, Shimano includes quick-links with their chains.
