Probably the best-selling 11-speed chain of all time, Shimano's workhorse HG 701.
This chain comes with 116 links and belongs to the Ultegra and XT groups at Shimano. Except for my priority A competitions, where I usually ride a DURA-ACE version, I use this chain all year round on all bikes, including off-road and also with other 11-speed SRAM gears. Of course, it also fits the higher and lower groupsets of the Japanese with eleven sprockets
This chain is completely degreased with white spirit, ultrasound and ethanol and then waxed.
Depending on the version, you can close this chain once with the supplied rivet pin or Shimano's chain lock SM-CN-900-11. Or (better!) order YBN's reusable lock separately
