No matter how hard will put curves or the pedals, for these axes, it is a breeze. Words such as twisting or bending, are foreign to them. Furthermore, a new freewheel body was developed, wtube weight has been reduced to the minimum feasible. The highlight of the new rear hub is the 45 dentate toothed disc freewheel titanium. This material was ctuben not only because of its light weight, but also because it sounds with the lower in comparison to the classic look tooth number not as aggressive, but nevertheless Chris King characteristic.

The high precision and high quality stainless steel guarantee legendary durability and smooth running of Chris King hubs. In the Ceramic design the bearing balls have ceramic.
