What is the difference between a 9 speed chain and a 10 speed chain?

The main difference between a 9 speed chain and a 10 speed chain is that the 10 speed chain is thinner in width, because of the 10 speed cassette, which in turn means the chain is lighter.

Are 9 and 10 speed chains the same?

10-speed chains have the same inner/roller width as 9-speed chains while being narrower. Therefore, a 10-speed chain meets the compatibility requirements because it has enough inner space for a 9-speed sprocket and doesn’t cause rubbing due to its slimmer profile.
