For almost hundred years, Tsubaki has been dedicated to improve the quality of roller chain. No one knows exactly when the idea for roller chain was first conceived but brilliant 15th Century inventor Leonardo da Vinci produced a series of sketches illustrating basic chain. Until today these sketches are still fundamental for the design of today’s roller chain. A magnificent testimony to the effectiveness of its original design.
Although the basic principle of the roller chain still remains unchanged, developments to the product are made constantly in order to meet today’s requirements of the motorcycle industry. Tsubaki has been developing motorcycle chain products for over 40 years, starting from standard ASA 50/60 series to first sealed O-ring series in the late seventies to today’s premium TX4-ring chains series. Today our program is based on customer demand. From small moped chains to premium TX4-ring racing chains.
Tsubaki products are produced according to the highest Japanese manufacturing standards. These high quality standards ensure a product which will guarantee maximum performance under all riding conditions.
