You won’t find a stronger, longer-lasting, or more beautiful chain than the legendary Super Toughness, made from pure Japanese steel. We use a special high-carbon alloy for the connecting pins—often used in low-friction ball bearings—which offers a 300 percent increase in durability compared to a standard chain. One of the few chains that meets the strict certification requirements of the Japanese Keirin Association (NJS), the Izumi-V is renowned among keirin racers for its strength and efficient power transfer. The proprietary surface treatment increases abrasion resistance and creates the striking contrast of gold outer plates against midnight-blue inner plates.
Specifically designed for the Tokyo Olympics and tested in partnership with USA Cycling, this chain features a very slick, highly-functional new coating on the plates, seamless bushings and rollers which is said to reduce resistance and drag by 10% compared to the traditional Model V Super Toughness when used in combination with a high-performance lubricant.
This new technology also increases hardness, durability and corrosion resistance.
