    Is KMC or Shimano the better make of chain? If helps its for a 10speed Shimano SLX derailleur.

    Both as good as each other as a brand, there are a lot more KMC chains to choose from though, personally I use the x10.93, haven't had one break yet and they seem to last well.

    I've had both in the past and never had a problem with either of them. I'm currently using the Shimano CN 6701 although I was after the X10.93 at the time I bought it as it is cheaper. They're both good brands and I'd be happy to use either of them.

    Either or, I buy which ever is cheaper or on sale at the time! Some of the more expensive KMC chains are lighter, but that's a lot on ££'s for a few grams weight saving, best reserved for the weight weenies ;)
