The GX Eagle™ chain is designed with SRAM’s Eagle™ geometry, the GX Eagle™ chain features solid pin construction, Eagle™ PowerLock® and smooth, efficient shifting that you can count on every time out.
Using ground-breaking new chain design and technology, the Eagle™ chain has been completely re-engineered and is produced with new manufacturing technology. All-new Eagle™ PowerLock® chain connector with FLOW LINK™ technology provides better chain-guiding and increased longevity. Unique features and design also provide significantly improved wear resistance on Eagle™ cassettes and rings.
SRAM chain engineers developed PowerLock® as a tool-free, sure and consistent way to connect our chains. While PowerLock® does not require special tools for install, the especially tight tolerances of 10, 11 and 12-speed drivetrains mandate that each PowerLock® is good for a one-time application only.
Ultra-smooth chain inner-plates are completely devoid of square edges, resulting in a chain that engages the cassette and chainring with far less friction, for quieter performance and better wear life. The design allows a narrower overall profile that can withstand greater angles and allows for a flatter outer-plate which means more consistent chain riveting and enhanced overall strength.
