This latest Shimano Dura ace chain HG-X11 version is smoother, quieter and longer lasting than the Dura-Ace CN-9000 chain it replaces. To achieve these improvements, it features a new special asymmetric plate design so make certain the writing is on the outside during the install. The CN-HG901-11 is Shimano's top 11-speed chain offering and the latest and greatest chain for Dura-Ace 9000 and XTR M9000 11-speed components. additionally, the CN-HG901-11 can be used with all Shimano 11-speed groups.

The Shimano Dura Ace chain CN-HG901-11 eleven-speed chain is 9 grams lighter and 20% more durable than the CN-7901. The CN-HG901-11 is 5.62mm wide - slightly more narrow than the 5.88mm 7901 chain. One of the key features of the CN-HG901-11 chain is the Sil-Tec coating that contributes to a claimed 20% increase in durability. The special PTFE coating also provides a smoother feel during shifts and less drivetrain noise even when cross-chaining. Chain pins for installation are included with the chain.
