Here are some kind words from Jim Langely, of and Praxis, on Connex chains:

"To me, Wippermann Connex chains are like that trusty cable cutter, spoke wrench or spanner you know will get the job done right every time. Since they first appeared in the early 90's I've been upgrading bicycles to Connex chains and links as a pro mechanic, as a technical editor for Bicycling Magazine and, and now as an engineer at Praxis Works. I've also logged tens of thousands of miles on Connex chains as a masters racer. I'm confident there's no smoother-running, quicker-shifting, longer-lasting chain going - at any price. Try a Connex. You'll be glad you did."
