This is the Shimano Ultegra CN-6701 10-Speed Chain. The Shimano Ultegra CN-6701 10-speed road bicycle chain uses optimized plates for improved power transfer and shifting performance.


  • Asymmetric design with redesigned inner/outer plates virtually eliminate chain suck and improve contact with the cassette sprockets for smoother, noiseless shifting under heavy loads- for double chainrings only
  • Reshaped outer plate is perforated to reduce weight and chain suck
  • Reshaped inner plate lessens drivetrain friction for smoother rear shifting
  • Enhanced press-in construction offers stable shifting action

Speeds: 10 Speed
Links: 116
Chain Width: 6.1mm
Chain Connector: Pressed Pin
Pin Type: Solid
Color: Silver
Weight: 267g


  • Pressed Pin connector

Be careful when you buy this Shimano chain. Three of the last four that I bought or checked at the store already showed 0.5% of chain stretch out of the box, using a Park tool. In other words, two thirds of the wear was already present in the "new" chain. I gave up and bought a KMC chain which was solidly at 0% wear.

Shimano should be ashamed of their quality control.

Absolutely fantastic chain. I wish the price of these hadn't gone up so much over the last few years. Coupled with either my 5700 or 6700 cassette I get lightening fast up/down shifts with very little running noise. I'm currently using two of these with my own paraffin wax and graphite mixture, after 7,500 kms per chain they still measure perfect length wise with my ruler but started to develop enough lateral play to affect shifting. For reference on what kind of life they've lived I'm 77kg with an FTP of 290W. Looking to replace these I'm leaning towards the Tiagra CN-4601 since they are more economical and design wise appear to be identical (now that Tiagra is 10 speed).
