Traditionally, "Tensile Strength" has been used to measure the strength of a chain. But Tensile Strength is only a laboratory measurement of a chain's "breaking point".
Rigidity increases a chain's ability to withstand forces that occur in a rider's real world experience. Rigidity increases power transfer from the engine to the ground and greater resistance to stretching under load.
To maximize performance, ZVM-X chains have D. D's race proven low friction X-Rings.
D's PRO-Street VX Series Chains are a perfect match for your dual sport, sport bike or sport touring bike. D's PATENTED X-Ring construction reduces friction by twisting between the side plates instead of being squashed. Normal O-Rings and other makers' modified O-Rings have squashed points that increase friction. The twisting action of the X-Ring disperses the pressure and minimizes power loss. 1.5 to 2 TImes Longer Wear Resistance.The X-Ring's four contact points greatly increase its sealing performance. This keeps the dirt out and the lubrication in much better than any other O-Ring. X-Rings have the greatest wear resistance of any other type of O-Ring or Non-O-Ring chain.
