With the Shimano XT CN-M8100 chain you can perform smooth manoeuvres on rough terrain
The Shimano XT CN-M8100 12 chain is a key component of the XT M8100 groupset and has therefore been optimised from the ground up. Precise, fast and smooth shifts in both directions, even under load, are ensured by high-precision formed contact surfaces to the chainring and cassette. In addition, the CN-M8100 chain has chrome-plated inner plates, which noticeably increase its durability.

Application: MTB, E-Bike
Gearing: 12-speed

Technical Information:
Number of Links: 116, 126, 138
Closure Type: master link (Quick-Link)
Pin Type: solid
Directional: yes
Recommended Groupset: XT M8100
Material: steel

- HG chain for 1x12, 2x12
- smooth manoeuvres over rough terrain and obstacles with constant rhythm
- enlarged inner plate for improved chain retention
- chrome-plated inner plate
- shorter shift times, improved shift behaviour
- with master link for easy installation

The 12-speed HG chain delivers smooth power transmission with tighter chain guidance and a quieter and softer drivetrain thanks to larger parts on the end of the inner plates in combination with the Dynamic Chain Engagement Plus crank or chainring. And the combination with Hyperglide+ makes shifting possible without interrupting pedalling.

The CN-M8100 chain has an asymmetrical design. The direction of travel must therefore be taken into account when installing. The specially shaped plates optimise the mesh between sprocket and results in smoother gear changes even under load. To save weight, these chains have recesses in the inner plates. The side with the mark is the outside.
