 Campagnolo Chorus 11 Speed Chain
Campagnolo Chorus 11 Speed Chain
The 11 speed chain has been designed for shifting more rapidly and fluidly even under stress, and to be more resistant than the 10 speed one.
 

The info says you need the £100 campag tool to fit chain.

I intend to use an 11 speed KMC link to join the 11 speed chain as I have used their links for my 10 speed bikes.
I have the 10 speed Campag tool. Will this work to cut the 11 speed chain to length or do I have to have the specific and expensive Campag 11 speed tool?
Do you stock cheaper 11 speed tools if they are available?

Thanks

Mike
You will need the 11 speed chain tool to close the pin on the chain.
