will this KMC chain work with Shimano drivetrain?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

KMC X10 Silver/Grey Chain

It just says x10.

I thought it should mention a s or a c or a sc for comaptibility with Shimano/Campy? Currently have a KMC DX10SC which came stock with my CAAD9, but am planning to change my cassette so thought that I would put on a new chain as well.

Alternative - 105 chain with KMC missing link? Any ideas on how this would be?

Plenty of folks here use those w/Shimano IIRC.

It's both Shimano and Campy compatible and also my choice for Shimano 10-speed.

Last I heard KMC makes all the Shimano chains up to Ultegra.

DA is still made in Japan. This could have changed though, but you should be fine.

Thanks guys.

Was a bit unsure as the website does not saw which 10 sp chain it is. Going by the pricing and comparing to US e-bay, I guess its the KMC x10-93.

So I guess I'll just order it and see.
