    from what ive gathered it should work. i used KMC (not shimano) and worked wonderfully on my Superfly.

    Any Shimano HG type chain will work. I was using a XT level (HG-94) on my SLX drive train. I tried a KMC but my cassette is too far gone, it keeps slipping.

    Just make sure its a Shimano MTB chain not road.

    The only difference between the different levels of Shimano MTB chains are the coating, and the XTR gets hollow pins for weight saving. Personally, I use the XTR M980 chain on my SLX drivetrain simply because its zinc plated so doesn't rust!

    Many also use SRAM, KMC, Connex 10sp chains without a problem on a Shimano system, and Giant seems to ship all Shimano equipped bikes with KMC chains these days, so they obviously don't think mixing them matters!
