Renthal R1 Chain: Ultimate durability and performance

The Renthal R1 MX works chain is a premium high strength offroad chain with excellent impact load resistance, designed specifically to withstand the stress found in off road applications. This chain is the choice where a combination of high strength, light weight and maximum power transfer are important considerations.

Shot peened - the steel plates are shot peened to give them a high tensile strength and maximum impact load resistance

Chamfered Links - The inner links are chamfered - this process helps reduce the chain of chain derailment in the toughest conditions. (excluding the 420 R1 chain)

Chromised Pins - specifically for the offroad market, the bearing pins are chromised, giving them excellent resistance to wear in the gritty conditions endured in off-road racing.

Pre-formed bushings distribute the load, resulting in greater chain life. The bushings extended to reduce friction between inner and outer link plates, maximising power output.

Special finish - the gold side plates have a corrosion resistant plating that provides it with an attractive colour to match all motorcycles.

Perfect Match - Pair with any Renthal Chainwheel (sprocket) you'll get the maximum power at the rear wheel with an extended life for both chain and chainwheels.

Each chain includes a masterlink and a pair of latex gloves for mess free installation.

Average tensile strength for the 520 pitch chain is 7644 lbf

The 520 chain is suitable for:

  • 2 strokes - up to (and including) 250cc motocross bikes
  • 4 strokes - up to (and including ) 450 cc motocross bikes
  • 400cc trials bikes

If your offroad bike does not fall between these cc ranges, please see the Renthal R3-3 O-ring chain.
