R1 Chain is a premium high strength offroad chain with excellent impact load resistance, designed specifically to withstand the stresses found in off road applications. This chain is the choice where a combination of high strength, light weight and maximum power transfer are important considerations.
The Steel plates are shot peened to give them a high tensile strength and maximum impact load resistance.
The Inner links are chamfered, this process helps reduce the chance of chain derailment in the toughest conditions.
Specifically for the off-road market, the bearing pins are chromised, giving them excellent resistance to wear in the gritty conditions endured in off-road racing.
Pre-formed bushings distribute the load, resulting in greater chain life. The bushings extended to reduce friction between inner and outer link plates, maximising power output.
