Renthal R1 Chain: Ultimate durability and performance
The Renthal R1 MX works chain is a premium high strength offroad chain with excellent impact load resistance, designed specifically to withstand the stress found in off road applications. This chain is the choice where a combination of high strength, light weight and maximum power transfer are important considerations.
Shot peened - the steel plates are shot peened to give them a high tensile strength and maximum impact load resistance
Chamfered Links - The inner links are chamfered - this process helps reduce the chain of chain derailment in the toughest conditions. (excluding the 420 R1 chain)
Chromised Pins - specifically for the offroad market, the bearing pins are chromised, giving them excellent resistance to wear in the gritty conditions endured in off-road racing.
Pre-formed bushings distribute the load, resulting in greater chain life. The bushings extended to reduce friction between inner and outer link plates, maximising power output.
Special finish - the gold side plates have a corrosion resistant plating that provides it with an attractive colour to match all motorcycles.
Perfect Match - Pair with any Renthal Chainwheel (sprocket) you'll get the maximum power at the rear wheel with an extended life for both chain and chainwheels.
Each chain includes a masterlink and a pair of latex gloves for mess free installation.
Average tensile strength for the 520 pitch chain is 7644 lbf
The 520 chain is suitable for:
- 2 strokes - up to (and including) 250cc motocross bikes
- 4 strokes - up to (and including ) 450 cc motocross bikes
- 400cc trials bikes
If your offroad bike does not fall between these cc ranges, please see the Renthal R3-3 O-ring chain.
