Race BMX Chains

How to pick the right Race BMX chain

The chain is a pretty essential part of a race BMX bike. The chain is the part responsible for transferring the power from the front chainring to the rear sprocket.

Half link vs single speed - what to chose for a race BMX?

When you want to replace the chain, there is generally one big question to consider: Do you want to buy a halflink chain or a single speed chain.

There are pros and cons of both types, but if the difference is to be boiled down you can say, that half link makes it possible to make finer adjustments to the length of the chain than the single speed chain offers. The single speed chain usually weighs a little less, and that is why many race BMX riders often prefer the single speed chain in order to save weight.

The race BMX chains are less exposed than freestyle BMX chains, this is why, the weight is of higher importance than the durability.
