The hybrid toothed chain and sprockets incorporate features of roller chain, half link chain and gear transmission. For power transmission, it has the advantages of roller chain: simple, strong, reliable and lightweight. The consistent pitch of half links decrease vibration and allow flexibility for bicycle sizes. The toothed profile engaging system on both chain and sprockets enhance efficiency and reduce the noise of gear transmission. Consequently, this product is smoother and quieter with higher transmission efficiency, making the hybrid design the future trend of bicycle drive chains.
