R1 - MX Works Chain
A premium high strength offroad chain with excellent impact load resistance, designed specifically to withstand the stress found in off road applications. This chain is the choice where a combination of high strength, light weight and maximum power transfer are important considerations.
Renthal R1 Chain : Ultimate durability and performance
The Steel plates are shot peened to give them a high tensile strength and maximum impact load resistance.
The Inner links are chamfered, this process helps reduce the chance of chain derailment in the toughest conditions.
Specifically for the off-road market, the bearing pins are chromised, giving them excellent resistance to wear in the gritty conditions endured in off-road racing.*
Distribute the load, resulting in greater chain life. The bushings extended to reduce friction between inner and outer link plates, maximising power output.
The gold side plates have a corrosion resistant plating that provides it with an attractive colour to match all motorcycles.
Pair with any Renthal Chainwheel and get the maximum power at the rear wheel with an extended life for both chain and chainwheels.
Each chain includes a masterlink and a pair of latex gloves for mess free installation.
