Chrome Hardened rivet pins for increased durability
As far as decent price chains go, it seems just fine. The initial layer of grease was thin, so it needs help there from the beginning which is too bad because usually chains are great out of the box for a long time. The quick link was extremely tight and hard to snap together. It is releasable, but takes a good effort to do so. It's not a bad chain, but I've seen better ones at the same price point.

Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
This is a decent chain, I used it for commuting in a wet marine environment and was satisfied with its performance to price ratio. I'm about 160 lbs. and ran the chain on my somewhat heavy commuter, which got me a little over 700 miles before it was time to replace it . . . not bad considering how cheap it is when you can get it on sale. The tool-less master link works really well and the chain runs pretty quiet as long as you don't used dry wax lubes.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
