None are currently in production, well one maybe but it has issues and the maker disputes this so best avoided. The best alternative is a big pin chain from Andy the Chainman, the big pins reduce wear and its comes pre stretched ie run in with the initial wear already complete so its fit and forget. Its based on a Mercedes timing chain made by Iwis, the pins are the largest size possible and this is where a chain wears, its like increasing the diameter of a big end bearing.
