Description: Zephyr Chain is a progression of Daisy 0 Chain. Zephyr Chain consists of a Straight 2 in 1 Chain made with smaller rings and larger rings that weave through its alternating sides. For Daisy 0 Chain, the side rings weave through 2 rings on the Straight 2 in 1 Chain, so all the rings can be the same size. For Zephyr Chain the side rings weave through 3 rings on the Straight 2 in 1 Chain, so they must be larger. The AR lock feature on this weave is unique in that the size of the large rings is forcing them to alternate sides. If the side rings were smaller they could slip to either side. I tried this and the result was less symmetrical. Small rings are 5 in 1 and large rings are 3 in 1. Sample is made with stainless steel 16swg 29/128" and 5/16" ID rings with corresponding 3.78 AR and 5.34 AR.
