Izumi KAI Super Tough Track Chain, already dominating the professional scene with their V-Chain, Izumi have stepped things up with the KAI. 

Debuted at the Tokyo Olympics, Izumi have produced a chain that features a very slick, highly-functional new ceramic coating on the plates, bushings and rollers which is said to reduce resistance and drag by at least 10% compared to the market leading Izumi V-Chain Super Tough Track Chain.

We didn't think chains could get better but the Izumi KAI is quite simply the best chain we have ever used. 

Increased hardness, durability and corrosion resistance make this the strongest, fastest track chain ever produced.
