Renthal's R1 Works Chain is a high-strength, non-O-ring chain with excellent impact load resistance designed specifically to withstand the stress found in offroad applications. This chain is the choice where a combination of high-strength, lightweight and maximum power transfer are important considerations. Shot-peened alloy steel side plates for high-tensile strength and maximum impact load resistance. Chamfered inner links to help reduce the chance of chain derailment. Extended bushings to reduce friction between inner- and outer-link plates. Shot-peened solid rollers and chromized pins help to extend service life. Gold-anodized side plates help prevent corrosion.
