The HG95 is Shimano’s new 2014 XT-level chain specifically designed to work with the Dyna-Sys 10 speed MTB drivetrain. Shimano developed Dyna-Sys with the goal of increasing rider efficiency. This means closer ratios, smoother shifts, and a more stable pedal stroke. The new surface treatment technology on inner and outer link plates lowers friction and increases grease keeping capability for smoother shifts and longer service life.
This chain is directional for maximum shifting performance, for use with Dyna-Sys cassettes only.
New surface treatment technology on inner and outer link plates
Inner and outer plates have an asymmetrical design for optimum front and rear shifting
New design has better mud-shedding capabilities than current chains
