The new C13 chain is a vital element of the Ekar mechanical groupset; along with providing an efficient drive, in gravel riding a chain must work perfectly to contribute to the derailleur smooth, quick gear shifts, and always remain secure. It must also be strong and durable – and the Ekar C13 chain delivers impressively on all fronts. At just 4.9mm wide the C13 chain is 0.25mm narrower than the highly efficient Campagnolo 12-speed chain but delivers exactly the same high performance and durability that Campagnolo chains are renowned for. The C13 chain mates effectively with the wide-narrow teeth design of Ekar's 1x13-speed chainrings and cassette sprockets for a positive, efficient, low-friction drive, and benefits from high security. Despite its narrow profile, the C13 chain is very strong; its C60 steel inner links have a Nickel-Teflon surface treatment to withstand the higher rate of wear they are subject to. They are pinned to the high tensile strength C67 NiCrMo2 steel outer links – a more resistant steel with a higher carbon content, coated with a Nickel surface treatment to withstand the greater mechanical stresses they face. The whole chain, made in Campagnolo’s dedicated facility in Vicenza, is subject to a unique lubrication process, with an ultrasound bath system that ensures the special lubricant formula coats deeply and evenly in every part of every link of every chain. The result is efficient operation and high resilience, providing longevity even in the tough conditions faced in off-road riding, with less demanding maintenance requirements.
Our "waxed" chain option offers a unique approach to maintaining your brand new chain. This option involves a multi-step process that ensures your chain is well-prepared before use; cleaning, drying, waxing, curing and inspection.
Please note that the entire process will take a few days to complete, as we want to ensure that your chain is properly cleaned, coated, and cured before it reaches you. While this option requires a short wait, many cyclists find that the benefits of a waxed chain, including smoother operation and reduced maintenance needs, make it well worth it in the long run. Thank you for choosing our "waxed" chain option to enhance your cycling experience.
