CHRIS KING rear hub MTB ceramic Center Lock | 12x148 mm thru axle | Freewheel SRAM XD
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.
The unmistakable sound of the freewheel is the hallmark of the rear hubs. Chris King himself called it "Angry Bee Sound", the sound of the angry bee, which is generated by the 72 grid points of the stainless steel toothed disc. With this 3-part RingDrive system, every step is immediately converted into propulsion without a large amount of idle travel.
Due to the large hub flange of the hubs, shorter spokes can be used when building wheels. 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 ceramic bearings installed here are the highest level of evolution. Their smooth running is phenomenal and their durability is unmatched. They also save a bit of weight. 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.
