CHRIS KING rear hub Road R45 ceramic | 5x130 mm quick release | Freewheel Shimano / SRAM
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.
When Chris King's engineers started developing the R45, everything was created under the motto "light & fast". Every detail was haggled and the result is quite impressive. Not only is it lighter than its predecessor, it is also significantly stiffer axle
The unmistakable sound of the freewheel is the hallmark of the rear hubs. It is generated by the 45 grid points of the stainless steel tooth lock washer. With this 3-part RingDrive system, every step is immediately converted into propulsion without a large amount of idle travel. 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.
