CHRIS KING front hub Road R45 | 5x100 mm quick release
There is a certain myth attached to CHRIS KING hubs. They have been on the market almost unchanged for years and yet are not old fashioned. Thanks to the proven technical inner workings, constant further development in detail and unmistakable optics, they have developed into a true cult object.
When Chris King's engineers started developing the R45, everything was created under the motto "light & fast". Every detail was haggled and the result is impressive. Not only is it lighter than its predecessor, it is also significantly stiffer axle This means that it twists less and passes steering commands on very precisely. But one thing has remained, the soul of Chris King.
The enlarged hub flange means that shorter spokes can be used when building the wheel. This not only saves weight, but also enables a very stable and durable bike.
The heart of the hub are the ball bearings. These are also developed and produced directly by Chris King. This means that they can be fully adapted to the specific loads and forces. The multiple seals mean that water or dirt cannot penetrate. Each bearing is checked by hand for any quality defects before installation and, if necessary, sorted out. The adjustment of the bearing play is very simple and can also be carried out in the installed state. With the help of the Chris King hub tool set, which can be purchased as an option, replacing the bearings and maintaining the hub is child's play.
Chris King has confidence in his products. They show this by giving a lifetime guarantee on their hubs. You will need to register your hub on their website after purchasing it.
