The Campagnolo Ekar C13 chain is one of the fundamental elements of the groupset of the same name. Gravel riding requires a chain that offers the most efficient transmission, smooth and fast shifting, and that is robust and resistant over time. The Ekar C13 chain is 0.25 mm narrower than Campagolo's 12-speed chain, but offers exactly the same performance, even over time. The C13 chain meshes efficiently with the special profile of the chainring of the 1x13 speed crankset and the Ekar Sprocket for a safe, efficient and smooth transmission. Despite its narrow profile, the C13 chain is very robust; its inner links made of C60 steel, with Teflon nickel surface treatment, withstand the higher degree of wear to which they are subjected on Gravel courses.
The entire chain undergoes an exclusive lubrication process, with an ultrasonic bath system that allows the special lubricating formula to cover all the links thoroughly and evenly. This treatment guarantees efficient operation and excellent resistance over time, even in difficult off-road conditions, and minimises maintenance.
The Ekar C13 chain is available in two closure options: the classic Campagnolo pin or the new C-Link™, for even easier removal and cleaning. Both versions have been designed to offer the versatility to meet the different requirements of all types of gravel use, worldwide. Whether you are a pure gravel rider, tackle long-distance endurance races or prefer to experience off-roading, you will find the same strength and efficiency in both versions guaranteed by the use of identical materials and processes.
