CHRIS KING Front Hub Road R45 Disc Centerlock black | Quick release
CHRIS KING hubs depends on a certain myth. They have been almost unchanged on the market for years and yet they do not belong to the old iron. Thanks to the proven technical interior, continuous development in detail and distinctive look, they have become a cult object.
When the engineers of Chris King started to develop the R45, everything started under the motto "light & fast". It was haggled at every detail and the result is impressive. Not only is it lighter than its predecessor, it is also much stiffer thanks to the 17 mm axle . As a result, it twists less and passes steering commands very precisely. One thing remained, the soul of Chris King.
Due to the enlarged hub flange, shorter spokes can be used for wheel construction. This not only saves weight, but also allows 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. Thus, they can be completely adapted to the specific loads and forces. Due to the multiple seal penetration of water or dirt is almost impossible. Each warehouse is checked before installation by hand for any quality defects and, if necessary, sorted out. The setting of the bearing clearance is very simple and can also be carried out when installed. With the help of the Chris King hub tool kit, 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 their hubs a 5-year warranty.
