    Great Chain

    I have ran this chain for about a year with no problems. I take the chain from the box and run it with the wax that it comes on it. It lasted about a month to five week and stays fairly clean. Shifts smooth as well.

    Innovative design

    Seems well made and like the design- flat top

    Too early to rate longevity- time will tell

    Like the rainbow color- incentive to keep extra clean

    Like red but only more rainbow!

    What's not to love about a SRAM Red flat top chain in rainbow color? Really hoping they decide to keep this color around and not have it remain a limited edition. Don't sleep on this! It looks fantastic in person. I grabbed three since they look so amazing paired with the new RED rainbow cassettes!

    An Improvement Over SRAM Red-22

    A much smoother and quieter chain than the old SRAM Red-22 chain and eTap system. Chain also lasts longer.

    Good shifting

    I am new to the 12 spd world but run wrap 11 and 12 speed on three separate bikes

    Love the range the 12 speed gives you. The chain is light and quiet. But pricey for sure and rarely on sale.

    Sram flattop

    These new chains look like they are lasting longer than my old 11 speed chains according to the chain checker tool. I have not had to put this chain on yet because the one that came on my bike still shows good. I went with the Red chain for the first chain change but will probably go with Force on the next one it is half the price.

    Excellent

    Happy with the SRAM chain. I find the flattop is a bit harder to keep lives and quiet but the AXS system is excellent.

    The only chain recommended for SRAM RED AXS

    This is the "flat on one side" SRAM RED AXS chain. Cannot really compare to anything on this group set, but the data is that it is not a fast chain. I use Silca wax on it and the original lasted for a long time. With proper maintenance one can get 20K out of it.

    Love the colors and had to have the bling for Christmas.

    Looking forward to when my chain needs to be changed out for this new Rainbow SRAM Chain. It goes with my bottle cages with the same rainbow colors. I purchased the usual silver and the rainbow chains for my new gravel bike. It helped to use the one time 25% off coupon too!

    Manage to break the original!

    Seems a little sensitive chain. I am not a big guy with brutal power, still managed to brake this chain on my gravel bike. Probably my fault - at least partially. Managed to "hack" it back together and get home without a chain tool - also my fault. Still I have not had this problem before with any other chain. I got a new one - quite expensive but reluctant to try something else with the SRAM Red 12 setup.

    Only recommended chain for SRAM RED AXS group set

    Good chain but pricey. The original lasted more than 10K miles with good care.

    SRAM Red - 12spd

    Best group set on the market and one of the best pieces is the chain, solid, extremely quiet and durable...
