Izumi Japan is THE track chain specialist for over a century - Yes, leading 100+ years of history and technological advancement.
Drive the optimal power down to the track below you through your Izumi chain. Designed for maximum efficiency and durability, they will give you the confidence to be able to push harder on the pedals, knowing that they are more than capable of handling high levels of torque and power.
There’s no better chain for the price than the hard-working 410 series. Need extreme rust resistance? The 410TG’s special surface plating fends off the worst corrosion. Want a beautiful, long-wearing chain to match your frame, wheels, or grips? With seven different color combinations including the signature Jet Black finish, there’s a 410 that’s perfect for your ride. Every 410 chain uses the same side-plate steel as the Izumi-V for unparalleled abrasion resistance.
The chain is the heart of a bicycle: what connects it, what drives it, what animates it. Izumi has been making chains for over a century and only chains. That singular focus gives us an unparalleled advantage in developing new innovations and improvements in quality and performance. Read on to learn more about why the world’s best track racers trust Izumi chains for their bikes, and why the world’s largest component makers trust us to make theirs.
No one knows bicycle chains like Izumi. We started in 1916 as a maker exclusively of high-quality bicycle chains. In the century since, bicycles have changed dramatically: from one gear to 12, with increasingly sophisticated drivetrains that require light, durable, efficient chains for peak performance. At every step, Izumi continues to drive innovation in bicycle chains with advances in materials, surface treatments, and design. Today, Izumi remains family-owned and operated, and manufactures more than 4.5 million bicycle chains a year, including the legendary Super Toughness, and chains for Shimano’s high-end road, mountain, and e-bike groups, all made entirely in Japan.
1916: Izumi Chain is founded in Osaka, Japan as a maker of high-quality bicycle chains.
1954: Izumi achieves licensing for the rigorous JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) for bicycle chain manufacturing, which sets engineering requirements for tensile and fatigue strength, and wears resistance, among other parameters.
1976: Izumi starts manufacturing bicycle chains for Shimano.
1981: Izumi patents a multi-speed chain design that becomes the prototype for all multi-speed chains currently sold today
1985: As indexed shifting takes hold and rear cogs increase in number, Izumi pioneers narrow chains with bushless (flush) pins for quieter, lower-friction performance.
1990: Izumi invents the breakaway chain connector pin, co-patented with Shimano.
1995: Nine-speed drivetrains spur Izumi to create super-narrow chains and even more sophisticated side-plate shaping for smoother, faster shifts.
2010: Izumi achieves ISO 9001 quality management certification.
2017: Izumi opens the high-tech PCN Factory for chain assembly, its third manufacturing facility.
2019: Izumi opens a US subsidiary and continues its robust R&D program to create new innovations in drivetrain technology.
