Equivalent of powerlink for campy 10spd ?(4 posts)

Equivalent of powerlink for campy 10spd ?PeterRider

by looking at the archive here, it seems that the equivalents of the powerlink are the superlink, or wipperman connex link. Which one runs smoother ? Which one is the easiest to connect/disconnect ?

Thanks !

I use the Wipperman Connex and it shifts fine and readily comes apart, when I want it to. Follow the directions cafefully sinced it does make a difference which way it goes together.

For the Campy Ten chains, I know of 3 different companies making quick connect links. Whipperman makes their Connex link in Campy 10. IRD makes one and KMC makes one as well. They all are about the same thing and about the same price too. I have used the Connex and IRD links, and I can say both worked equally as well as the Sram link on my Shimano chains. They all sell for about $10. It seems the Connex is the most available for Campy 10 chains, but I have also used the IRD and it works well too.

I've been very pleased with the Connex--no problems and easy to use.
