Great Chain!

The Good:

Strong, Durable, Comes with halflink preinstalled, easy to install, Heat Treated, Style, etc..

The Bad:

Only is currently offered in 1 Color!!

Overall Review:

This chain is basically the KMC 710. Which I own as well. They are great chains. I’m not a half-link type person. So this chain is perfect for me. Way stronger than the 410 and the 510. It’s not that heavy. Some might think it is. But overall it’s a great chain. I just wish you could get different colors. What I think could be the difference in this chain vs. the KMC 710 is the Hoder chain is stamped with animal logos, it’s heat treated to make it stronger, and that’s about it. I have never broken a 710 or this chain. I’m a bigger guy and I ride hard sometimes. So if your looking for a reliable and strong chain. Go with this!!! 

Strong and solid

The Good:

No pins popping out, heavy outer plates

The Bad:

Thinner weaker inner plates, the half link stiffens up leaving a stiff link tried using chain tools to fix but still persisted also halflink has a smaller distance so feels either too short or too long. Chain has a different length then a 510 slighly longer.

Overall Review:

Not as great as i thought but no breaks or real issues.

Switched back to 510hx and found the sweet spot on my dropouts. With no halflink

With the 710 it felt short or too long so has a different spacing then the 510 regular full link types
