YBN has also led the industry with the development of Ni-PTFE coatings and was one of the first two chain manufacturers to introduce an 11-speed chain in 2008.
A big company doesn't necessarily equate to good products, but with YBN this is unequivocally the case.

It's important to note that YBN's steel chains are made with the same technology and quality as their titanium counterparts. YBN may make over 20 million chains a year, but their high tech equipment and skilled personnel closely monitor each chain during production.
