SRAM CN-Red-01 12 Speed Chain: Redefining Performance and Precision

Introducing the all-new SRAM CN-Red-01 12 Speed Chain – a chain that sets new standards for performance and precision. This chain was not just redesigned; it was reimagined from the ground up to deliver unparalleled cycling excellence.

Innovative Design: The SRAM Red chain boasts an innovative link shape that revolutionizes chain performance. This design allows for a narrower and lighter chain, all while enhancing its strength. Experience a chain that defies limits and redefines what's possible.

Optimized Space: The unique link shape of the CN-Red-01 also provides increased space between the outer plates of the chain and the cogs on either side. This optimization translates into a chain that operates smoother, quieter, and with unparalleled precision.

Shift with Confidence: Experience faster and more precise shifts that elevate your riding experience to a whole new level. The SRAM CN-Red-01 chain ensures that every gear change is seamless, giving you the confidence to conquer any challenge on the road.

Lightweight Performance: Redefine your cycling with a chain that not only performs at the highest level but is also remarkably lightweight. Enjoy the benefits of reduced rotational weight without compromising on strength and durability.

Technologies of SRAM CN-Red-01 12 Speed Chain

Hard Chrome:

The SRAM Hard Chrome chain has four times the elongation (wear) resistance to our other chains. This is due to the new finishing process on the inner links and rollers. Push pin strength and ultimate strength are equivalent to our current chains. The Hard Chrome chain lasts longer and is just as strong.


SRAM employs HollowPin construction on all its top of the line PowerChains. HollowPin yields plate retention strength, and low weight benchmarks unreachable in solid pin chain applications.


SRAM chain engineers developed PowerLock as a tool free, sure and consistent way to connect our chains. While PL does not require special tools for install, the especially tight tolerances of 10-and 11-speed drivetrains mandate that each PowerLock is good for a one-time application only.


To enable X-Range gearing technology, we developed a narrower chain. The unique link shape of Flattop technology not only allowed for a wider gear range, but also results in quieter drivetrain operation and increased chain strength and durability.
