CHRIS KING Rear Hub MTB Ceramic Center Lock | 12x148 mm thru axle | Freehub SRAM XD | midnight
There is a certain myth attached to CHRIS KING hubs. They have been on the market almost unchanged for years and yet they 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 wheel hubs. Described by Chris King himself as the "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 much free 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 wheel.
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. Due to the multiple seal, the ingress of water or dirt is almost impossible. Before installation, each bearing is checked by hand for any quality defects and sorted out if necessary. The ceramic bearings installed here are the highest level of evolution. Their smooth running is phenomenal and their durability unmatched. In addition, they even save some weight. Adjusting the bearing clearance is very simple and can also be carried out when installed. 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 it by giving a lifetime guarantee on their hubs. You must register your hub on their website after purchase.
