A half link only has a bearing on one side and its smaller than a normal link. Most of the time people only use like one half link in a chain just to get it to fit their bike properly. I don't have the shadow chain but i know some people that do and some like it and some don't.

The halflink chains allow for more precise chain adjustment, and back wheel placement.

Half Link chains are nice I used to be a firm believer but anyone ive known including me has had constant problems. They seems to not be able to withstand as much abuse as a normal one and a kmc z chain is like $15 and the hald link is close to $30 so its a no brainer

Half links are alot heavier than standard link chains but you do gain the ability to adjust through the entire length of the drop out. I do not think they are as strong though. On a half link each half link at some point has all the torque weight on it (on 1 pin) standard shares the
torque load (standard= 1 link / 2 pins). Therefore I have repeatedly broken any half link I've
owned. I broke the Shadow Interlok 3 times, then tossed it, and then the new DK EXO chain, 5 times.Then I put a cheap light KMC on and haven't had a prob yet. Oh yea I ride 25-9 or 22-8
