X-ring or XW-ring chain?

I will be buying a new chain for my bike, to go with 16T conversion. The shop has RK x-ring and xw-ring chains. The price of XW ring is a little higher than the X-ring. Which one should i buy?

but if your dead set on RK then judging by their chart the 520GXW seems to be the best (8,400lb tensile strength)

I was actually set on DID but they don't have it so I decided to go with RK, just didn't know which type to pick. We're not a big market like U.S. so parts can be hard to find sometimes.

520GXW won't be suitable for mine, i will keep the 525 size to go with z1000 16T. Sounds like XW-ring is the way to go.

prolly a good idea to stay with the 525. that said the 525XSO or 525GXW W/8,800lb tensile would work.
