Questions & Answers
Are the links reusable or do you have to purchase a new link each time the chain is removed?
Removing the chain is all I need to do if there is no other purpose for the chain The same one should be used. On the other hand, if I am getting a new chain, I will also replace the master link with a new one. It would not be worth my while to run again This is something I'll use more than once.
This link applies to Shimano 11 speed XTR chains, right?
As I have used Shimano Ultegra 11 speed chains, I am confident that they will work with XTR
To install the link, what do you need? Topeak multi tools are not as effective as special pliers and therefore do not warrant the purchase. ?
Chain links are easy to install without the use of tools. It is necessary to use a chain tool to ensure that you have two similar ends on the chain (inside links). All that's needed to lock it in is to attach and crank the pedals hard.
Have any of these ever been tried ?
As well as the 8 speed version, they offer the 10 speed version.
Selected User Reviews For SRAM PowerLock Chain Connector 11-speed, Silver, Pack of 4
This is a used product
I'm comparing it to a brand new SRAM quick link that came in its original packaging (these worked fine but were loosely packaged). In comparison, I am comparing these to the one I am comparing it to which does not have those tell-tale scuff marks. In addition to shiny stainless steel appearance, the one I'm comparing it to has also a chrome finish. Gray in color, these have a dull appearance. It is evident that these are not newly manufactured.

it's not what it appears to be
SRAM's own packaging was NOT included as these shipped from the UK opened and loose in an envelope without any packaging at all. There has been a change since the picture was taken. In the next picture, I tried to show the abrasions and discoloration on the links. As of now, I don't have a new PowerLock to compare it with, but it looks like these are just cleaned up used links, which is sketchy given SRAM's recommendation not to re-create The links are invalid as a result, and as such cannot be used. I'm very disappointed in this.
A chain link is one of the best things you can have
When you have finally been able to give up chain pins and a breaker, these gears are a must-have. When you catch it at the right time, a four-pack is a terrific value. Because the four-packs are geared for different speeds, make sure you choose the right ones. In most cases, they cannot be removed without a tool, although it is usually necessary to use one in order to swap them in. This tool (which is guaranteed to appear on the item page) is relatively inexpensive and allows changes to be made easily. It will be necessary to use a chain breaker for the initial installation, so if you don't have one, or cannot borrow one, a bicycle multitool like those from Lezyne, Crank Brothers, or Park Tool can save the day. Videos and instructions can be found online, and Park Tool offers some great videos in case you need them. In addition to what others have said, I also reuse With this price, they are easy to throw away after a few uses, and it is easy to carry one with you. They are handy for swapping out your chains if you wax your chains, which make what used to be a tedious task much easier (without worrying about finding Suitable for

What I expected did not happen
My purchase of 2 each of 4 SRAM powerlock link sets cost top dollar I waited 18 days for delivery, and received 8 link sets in an envelope (i. e. It does not come in a package from the manufacturer). It is only a saving grace that they actually are SRAM 11-speed Boost your powerlock with this link. There are some vendors that offer better service than this one. If you have 3 weeks to burn and enjoy keeping track of tiny expensive parts in your toolbox that blend in with your other nuts, bolts, and spare parts, then choose this one.

The SRAM are of high quality and are easy to use
In other words, quality is the same as with other products from SRAM. In terms of master links, they are quality links from the United States. It is simply a one-time use item, since SRAM links are designed as such. It is possible to reuse them, and I have done so The products are ONE TIME products, however, which is why Sram sells them. They continue with a 'snap' sound, because that is what happens. Do not believe Sram directly if you would like to learn more.

SRAM powerlocks from the original cartridge
It is an original SRAM power lock. My bag will always have one in it when I'm For a set of four, the price was reasonable. I should add There are four in the description, but I only received one, and I noticed that this seems to be a common theme among them. As a result of my call to Amazon, a replacement set is on the way. No one seems to be able to get the quantity right, and I can't figure out why.

Buying in bulk is the best option
It is recommended that at least one set of flares is kept in an I have installed them, and they seem to work well. This chain is reusable and high quality, so I frequently take it off for cleaning and waxing.

I really like the link you provided
I use it with my Shimano 11S chains and it works great. Some of them can actually be reused more than once. I have tried lots of links since I got my waxed chains, and these are my favorites.
