    KMC X11sl chain a myth?

    is the KMC X11sl chain for 11 speed a myth?
    I have been looking for one everywhere and it seems like everybody is out of stock.
    Did they ever release it to the market?
    Does anyone know where I can buy one?

    Thank you

    The Holy Grail of 11 speed.

    Never seen one either.

    Good luck in your quest!

    I had a prototype, and it seemed production ready to me. So it does exists, but I think they did move back the release date to August/September.

    I just can't believe that KMC thinks there is euough of a market to make a 11-speed chain. Well, it is their business and I'm quite happy with their 10-speed chains.

    I've got a 10 sp chain and it works great. The price is another plus.

    KMC SL vs L?

    Looking at the Ribble site I see 2 -11 speed KMC chains. What's the difference between the X11SL and the X11L? I see the SL has hollow pins and plates, is that the difference...thus a lighter chain with the SL? Thanks.
