Chris King R45 front wheel hub Ceramic intended use : road bike, triathlon, cyclocross
When Chris and his team of engineers began to develop the new R45, everything was created under the motto "Light and Fast". Every detail of the hubs has been reworked and a lot has been completely redesigned - dimensions and materials included. One thing remains the same: the soul of the King Hubs - consistently high reliability, high stability, easy maintenance and a 5-year guarantee!
The R45 Nabenset is 20% lighter than the already light classic Nabensätze. The front and rear wheel hub has been made smaller and slimmer, and the new 17mm axle further novelty. No matter how hard curves are taken or kicked into the pedals, it is a children's game for this axle . Words like twisting or bending are alien to them. Furthermore, a new freestanding body was developed whose weight was reduced to the minimum possible. The highlight of the new rear hub is, however, the 45 toothed toothed disc freewheel made of titanium. This material is not only chosen because of its low weight, but also because it does not sound quite as aggressive, but still characteristically Chris-King with the smaller number of teeth compared to the classic design.
The R45 hubs have fully sealed bearings made by Chris King. The high precision and high-quality stainless steel guarantee the legendary durability and easy running of the Chris King hubs. In the Ceramic version the ball bearing balls are made of ceramic. The ceramic is considerably harder than conventional steel balls and at the same time also significantly smoother. The service life of the bearings is prolonged with a simultaneous reduction in friction in the bearing!
