WHAT IS A BIKE CHAIN BRACELET?
A bike chain bracelet made from a bicycle chain. It consists of a minimum of two sections which would be the bike chain itself and a clasp. Elchains bike chain bracelets have 3 parts: the bike chain, the unique s-biner clasp and a flat split ring which increases flexibility and comfort. All three combined make a bike chain bracelet.
WHY BIKE CHAIN BRACELETS?
Bike chains durability is unmatched. After all the life of a human is in it’s hands. From a jewelry standpoint it doesn’t need that durability and engineering, however it adds an unseen factor of ruggedness and durability to jewelry which is overlooked. Men’s bracelets and women’s bracelets shouldn’t be so fragile. We don’t want to lose a piece of jewelry due to flimsy material. Elchains make jewelry with an industrial approach, thereby choosing function first and aesthetics second.
Are your bracelets made from used or new bike chains?
New. All bike chain bracelets are made from brand new bike chains. We were selling recycled ones before, however there is a health concern with selling used goods so we do not do that anymore. We still donate 1 dollar per sale to various environmental organizations.
ARE THE BRACELETS AND WALLET CHAINS DURABLE?
Our bracelets and wallet chains are the most durable on the market. We’d venture to say they are beyond the standard military grade of testing. Not only are the chains themselves superior in strength to regular chain links but our clasps are industrial products used for securing and fastening heavy loads. We use s-biners which were not built for jewelry, however the jewelry gods and bike chain legends in the sky got together and gave us this gift of a clasp. The fact that it is dual industrial/fashion allows you to apply the bracelet to numerous tasks such as using it as a key chain.
I’M HYPOALLERGENIC WILL YOUR BIKE CHAIN BRACELETS AFFECT MY SKIN?
No they will not. The founder of Elchains is hypoallergenic as well. We make two types of bracelets:
1. Stainless Steel
2. Regular bike chain metals such as alloy and nickel plated.
You should not have any kind of reaction with stainless steel and nickel plated bracelets. Now with the regular carbon alloy metals which are of the highest grade anyways, we treat them with a special treatment to make them weather resistant, rust resistant and non irritant to your skin.
