TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2018

KMC's Z1eHX chain's specific design maximizes performance when paired with single speed and IGH e-Bike central motors.
Unique O-Shaped Plates: 15% more plate surface than traditionally shaped plates allows for improved chain ring engagement and perfect e-Bike power transmission.
Inner chamfering balances the plates to enhance drivetrain harmonization, reduce noise, and provide smoother operation.
Central e-Bike motors inflict huge force on chains. Z1eHX chain offers tensile strength of over 1,100kgf, exceeding international standards by over 33%.
Enhanced Functionality: This sturdy chain possesses both high pin power and chain life.
