SRAM PC 1051 Chain

Smooth and reliable.

SRAM’s PC-1051 Chain features a corrosion-resistant nickel plating on both the inner and outer links to deliver smooth and precise shifting. The PC-1051 is built for 10-speed drivetrains and is designed to work seamlessly with the tooth shaping and pickup/release points on SRAM’s cassettes and chainrings. Thanks to SRAM’s PowerLock connecting link, the PC-1051 can be easily installed without needing special tools. Most importantly, the PowerLock link is as strong (or stronger) as any other link on the chain, and won’t impede shifting performance. The SRAM PC-1051 Chain is compatible with both SRAM and Shimano 10-speed drivetrains.

  • Nickel plating on both inner and outer links
  • Chrome-hardened pins at link pivots
  • PowerLock connecting link
  • Compatible with SRAM and Shimano 10-speed drivetrains

great

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

the quick link is awesome for being able to take the chain apart and off the bike for cleaning.

Budget Chain That Works

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased for my downhill bike and since I'm not worried about weight, it's been an awesome choice. Tough to do better for this price.

Awesome chain.

I am very happy with the Sram 1051 chains. They work great with my Campagnolo drivetrain. Shifts great & is way less than campy.

Solid budget workhorse chain

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Sure you could go lighter weight or more bling, but this checks all the basic boxes of a great chain. Good value 10s chain at sub-$20. Corrosion resistance is a plus. I went for this one to stack the miles on in all conditions and eventually replace so don't need top of the line product. Satisfied.

Solid budget workhorse chain

It s work's on the Shimano XT Dyna-Sys CS-M771 Cassette???

Hey Facundo, the Sram PC 1051 would work with the 10speed XT Dyna-Sys CS-M771 cassette (Backcountry Item #SHI0332). Let me know if you have any other questions or would like any help putting together an order for a new drivetrain! You can reach me at my direct line 801.204.4547 or email cojohnson@backcountry.com. Cheers, Connor

What? It's a chain!

Totally works as a chain. Great price, long lasting, and the powerlock link is miles nicer than any Shimano chain to install. Go this route unless you love pushing pins.

long lasting, durable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I only use these on my shimano bikes. They are really durable, outlasting even the cassette, despite PNW mud

Sram PC 1051 chain

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Chain on my bike recently stretched out so it was time for a new one. This chain is the best bang for the buck. No need to go for a higher end one.

Value

Fantastic for the money

A great budget chain.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is by far one of the best values as far as chains go. Price is right and it shifts much better and last a lot longer than comparably priced options.

No need for bling

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Keep it simple. Simple, functional, and durable. This chain is a great option for 10 speed drive trains. While it may not have the nicest coating or lightest weight, it will get you home and be a solid, reliable component.

My Preferred SRAM Chain

16g's is the advertised weight difference between the 1091 and 1051 chain.Same Ni plated inner and outer plates and no hollow link. The slight increase in price over the 1031 to get better wear and corrosion resistance thanks to the Ni platting and a very small weight penalty over the 1091, thats a no brainer.

Perfectly adequate chain

    I run the SRAM 50-series chains on all my bikes, because it's half the price of the 90 series, and in the 10-speed version, less than 20 grams heavier. I love the powerlink/masterlink, and the ability to fix it trailside with incredible ease, but I also haven't broken one of these chains, yet. The powerlink makes it a lot less finicky than Shimano's chain pins, as well.
