The MTB chain: the link between crankset and cassette
The MTB chain
is one of the most important parts to be monitored on your MTB as well as the condition of your brakes
to be checked regularly. It's exposed to mud, dust, sand and shocks.
The MTB chain is made up of a multitude of links that are assembled to one another.
It makes it possible to connect between your chain rings
(fixed to the crankset) and your cassette
, and the chain makes the transmission work. It's thanks to the chain that the energy provided by pedaling will be transmitted to the rear wheel.
How to choose a mountain bike chain?
Your choice depends on your type of transmission. The chain must be well-adapted to your cassette.
Indeed there are as many models of MTB chains as of types of cassettes. There are chains more or less fine and more or less long (about 112 to 116 links) to adapt to cassettes of 6 speeds up to 11 speeds.
Maintenance of your chain is to be done regularly to avoid premature wear. It's necessary to lubricate it after each cleaning session with special MTB lubricant chain
Finally, to disassemble/reassemble a chain easily and quickly, you need to be equipped with a chain derivative
