Review of the KMC X9SL Chain: 9 Speed 116 Links Ti Nitride Gold:
I've been using KMC Titanium Nitride chains for years. They weigh a little less and shift smoothly. The TN they coat the chains with makes the steel harder and less prone to stretching so they really do last longer, and no they don't chew up your drive train. They may cost twice as much as a good quality plain steel chain but they will last twice as long or longer, even under heavy use so I don't have to replace my chain as often. Oh, and I have never snapped one which is saying something.

Summed up: It's worth forking over the extra bucks for something that works great and lasts longer.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the KMC X9SL Chain: 9 Speed 116 Links Ti Nitride Gold:
I abuse SRAM and Shimano chains on two different bikes one FS Epic and a GF Hardtail 29er...Up until this chain I would break 3-4 chains per year. This chain has lasted me all season through my normal Clydesdale shifting abuse and mashing style. The Gold bling is a bonus!!!

Summed up: KMC Chains Rock!!

Great chain. Shifts good, looks good, weight's good. Only thing is the gold doesn't last too long, and fades really fast.

Review of the KMC X9SL Chain: 9 Speed 116 Links Ti Nitride Gold:
I bought this for my 2010 Scott Genius that had a beat up shimano on it. This KMC chain shifts QUICK and SMOOTH. Maybe because the interior of the side plates are beveled and the Ti makes everything slick. A great combo and rust free. Ill be buying another one when this one wears.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the KMC X9SL Chain: 9 Speed 116 Links Ti Nitride Gold:
I really like this chain so far, it shifts really smooth. I have only rode about 50 hard miles so far on my geared bike. I also have this chain on my singlespeed which has been on there for a little over a year. It is strong and has held up to a lot of abuse.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Noticeably lighter than others; quiet; smooth shifting. Prefer to Wipperman or Shimano.
