The Shimano XT CN-HG95 10-speed chain was developed specifically for MTB riding. This directional chain employs task-specific link plates to optimize front and rear shifting, and offers excellent mud shedding thanks to the special outer link plate design. A new Sil-Tec treatment on the plates allows them the freely pivot around derailleur pulleys, cogs, and chain rings with less friction. For use with 10-speed Shimano drivetrains only, will not work for road use. 283 g.
