Shimano HG40 6/7/8-Speed Chain 116L
The Shimano HG40 116L Chain is compatible with 6, 7 and 8-speed gear setups but is particularly recommended for Altus or older Alivio and STX drivetrains. Shimano’s Hyperglide technology is used to shape the inner plates, optimising shifting performance when used in conjunction with a Hyperglide cassette. The rollers, pins and plates are all heat treated during manufacturing and this combines with the mushrooming of the pins to heighten strength, durability and side-plate retention.
The chain comes complete with a handy connecting link so that installation is quick and easy.
