CHRIS KING Rear Hub Road R45 Disc 6-Hole Black | 12x142 mm thru axle | Freewheel Shimano
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 .
The unmistakable sound of the freewheel is the hallmark of the rear wheel hub. It is generated by the 45 grid points of the stainless steel toothed disc. Through this 3-part RingDrive ? system, every step, without a large free travel, immediately converted into propulsion.
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.
