Low-Noise Roller Chain

Uses Tsubaki's uniquely structured spring rollers for the chain rollers.

When Tsubaki's Low Noise Roller Chain engages the sprocket, the spring roller deforms and absorbs the force of impact, reducing impact noise between chain and sprocket for 6-8dB lower noise levels compared to Tsubaki's standard (pre-lubed) RS Roller Chain. (In-house comparison testing)
