First look: Sunstar XTG Works Chain

Sunstar’s XTG Chain, an o-ring chain designed for off-road and the most durable chain in the Italian maufacturer's line-up.


Sunstar chains and sprockets are well known in bike sports and both come as standard equipment across a range of motorcycle manufacturers plus stand as the choice for many factory race teams in Enduro, Rally and Motocross.

The seal is naturally designed to guard the critical areas against sand, dirt and ingress.
