The 12-speed HG chain delivers smooth power transfer with a tighter chain guide and a quieter and smoother drive thanks to larger parts on the end of the inner plates, in combination with the Dynamic Chain Engagement Plus crank or chainring. The combination with Hyperglide+ facilitates shifting without interrupting pedalling.
The CN-M8100 chain has an asymmetrical design. This means the running direction must be observed during installation. The specially-shaped tabs optimise engagement on the sprocket and result in even smoother shifting, even under load. To save weight, these chains have recesses on the inner link plates. The side with the marking is the outside.
