SRAM Force Creates A Lighter, Quieter, Stronger Chain
SRAM's latest Force D1 12-speed chain sets a new standard in shifting performance, and a big part of it is the incredible performance of high-quality SRAM technology. Thanks to the use of durable materials and an innovative design, the Force D1 chain is as radical as chains get.
Developed using technology from the Red D1 chain, the Force D1 chain features the all-new Flattop design that allows for the creation of a stronger, more durable chain that is quieter than ever. This unbelievable equipment also allows the chain to be made narrower, enabling the use of new X-Range technology on the XG-1270 cassette. The result is a quieter, more durable drivetrain with a bigger gear range.
Existing technologies such as SRAM's Chrome plating process and SolidPin construction were utilized and further improved upon. The result? Possibly the most radical chain ever produced, taking performance to the next level. The SRAM Force D1 Chain is perfect for your favorite 12 speed, taking your rides to the next level.

I have the force etap system on my Trek road bike.
The original 12-speed chain has over 9,000 miles on it. Lots of stressful miles of climbing and shifting.
I started to notice a little lag or sloppiness in the shifting. I use my part chain tool and saw that it was pretty well worn, surprisingly it was still at about 2% left. Anyway, long story short. I replaced it with a new one and it rides like a new bike now.
