The HKK Vertex Gold is one of the toughest track racing chains in existence.
This chain is black and gold, but the black appears to shine blue from certain angles, A side-effect of the hardening process the chain goes through during production.
NJS approved for use in Japanese pro keirin track racing!
Beautifully finished, super-tough race chain, with small NJS stamps on the chain links. This chain uses a bolt/nut quick-link system, like all NJS certified chains. You can instead choose to cut and install it with a chain cutter, though.
The Vertex Blue chain from HKK is the most popular chains amongst Keirin pro track riders.
The HKK Gold, and Silver chains have a secondary coating to improve their corrosion resistance over the standard HKK Blue. If you are riding outdoors it is recommended to select one of the Gold or Silver HKK chains.
106 Links - Included is joining Nut and Bolt.
Available stock with anti-corrosion lubricant applied, or pre ultrasonic cleaned for reduced friction and greatest performance when lubricated with low viscosity race lubricants.
