Effortless Performance. Effortless Perfection.

The SRAM Red E1 12-Speed Chain takes the lightest and most durable chain they've ever made and makes it lighter. With no compromises. HollowPin construction is lighter and stronger than a solid pin, and cutouts in the outer and inner plates drop 13 g from the previous generation. This results in a lighter, faster, stronger and more durable chain.


  • Flattop technology enables a narrower chain with quieter operation and increased strength and durability
  • Hard Chrome plated inner link plates and rollers for reduced wear and prolonged life
  • HollowPin construction for increased strength and efficiency
  • Super-light outer and inner plates with cut-out design
  • 13 g lighter than previous RED chain
