ML5CF Chain-breaker/splitter in carbon fibre-filled plastic
Replacing ML3, the top lever with the thermometer and clip, the ML5 contains a cast stainless steel chain-breaker/splitter.
The chain splitter is precision-cast in Sheffield and is made of a very tough, corrosion-resistant stainless steel used in petrochemical, offshore and other rigorous, demanding applications.
The bolt is made of hardened stainless steel. The chain spacer helps keep the chain together once you've split it and are looking to put it back together again with the split-links that you have stored in your ML1.
The base plastic of this lever is a new carbon fibre-filled, injection-moulded plastic that is not just lighter than the metal-replacement plastic but is also 3x stronger!
