    Eagle Powerlink availability?

    Looking for a reusable Eagle Powerlink, not to be confused with a Powerlock which I believe is not reusable. I have these for my 11sp bikes, do they exist for Eagle yet?

    i think the "non-reusable" language is just a CYA thing SRAM does. never had any problems reusing a quick link.

    Availability? Have you looked?...I easily found 12spd SRAM powerlinks on line when I replaced chain a few months ago. Also, I've reused powerlinks for years. Just clean them up and inspect for any obvious problems.

    Any bike shop or online retailer has them,
    I reuse mine for the life of the chain and have been for 20+ years. unless it gets damaged.
    New chain = new link.
    Making shit harder than it needs to be isn't awesome, it's just...harder.

    Eagle powerlocks are common. Eagle powerlinks are not. They are not the same thing.

    There is only one style of sram connector for 12 speeds. Sram changed the name from link, 9 speed to lock 10+ speeds. They are reusable for the life of the chain.

    Other companies like KMC still call it a link. The designs are similar enough not to matter.

    I stand corrected and appreciate the explanation, thank you. My confusion was the different terminology to the 11 speed ones.
