What difference does it make if you use an O ring or not
Also what is an x type chain
Orings don’t get crap into the rollers in the links. X section orings have a much better surface area seal. They’re both with the extra pennies IMO...

One of my favourite people on YouTube, RyanF9 does a pretty good job explaining the difference + their benefits in this video. He also does a really good job explaining to you why depending on the type of chain you have it’s quite important to use a certain lube.

@stevie-wonder Cool vid - thanks for sharing.
X ring chains are supposed to be better, more flexible and longer lasting, whereas O ring chains are more rigid and last less. But X ring are pretty much twice the price of O ring chains, so its a personal choice really. Personally I would go for a quality JT X ring chain like this one;
Also I have been using this stuff of my mountain bike and motorbike chains for donkeys years and can highly recommend it;
