In another thread I was surprised to see a poster recommend an X-Ring chain for replacement. Please educated this non-technical guy-what is the difference between an X-Ring and O-Ring chain? Any huge pros/cons for either one?? Thanks for the help.

D.I.D’s PATENTED X-Ring construction reduces friction by twisting between the side plates instead of being squashed. Normal O-Rings and other makers’ modified O-Rings have squashed points that increase friction. The twisting action of the X-Ring disperses the pressure and minimizes power loss.
The X-Ring’s four contact points greatly increase its sealing performance. This keeps the dirt out and the lubrication in much better than any other O-Ring. X-Rings have the greatest wear resistance of any other type of O-Ring or Non-O-Ring chain.
