KMC e12 chain

Strong 12-Speed e-Bike Chain

KMC’s e12 chain is especially made for all 12-speed e-Bikes. It features all of KMC’s 12-speed chain tech – combined with an increased strength to withstand the mechanical strains of e-Bike drive trains.

The e12 features KMC’s Shield Tech, a patented new riveting technology that utilizes a reinforced pin design, significantly increasing the chain’s pin power.

The e12 also comes with an enhanced tensile strength and rigidity that absorbs the constant load generated by strong mid-motors. Furthermore, Shield Tech provides a smoother rivet surface, which lowers parasitic drag and decreases interference between the chain and cassette. Special heat treatments enhance the durability of the chain and prolong mileage.
