Wheelset 28" Disc GRV | Chris King Road Center Lock Hubs | Duke Gravel Carbon Rims
Area of intended use : Gravel GRV, road bike RR
This light yet stable wheel set is the first choice for dedicated gravel or cross bikers. The balanced selection of components guarantees you high reliability and a long service life.
When Chris King's engineers started developing the R45, everything was based on the motto "light & fast". Every detail was haggled and the result is impressive. Not only is it lighter than its predecessor, it is also significantly stiffer thanks to the 17 mm axle . As a result, it twists less and transmits steering commands very precisely. But one thing has remained, the soul of Chris King.
Due to the enlarged hub flange, 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. Adjusting the bearing clearance is very simple and can also be carried out when installed.
The unmistakable sound of the freewheel is the hallmark of the rear wheel hubs. It is generated by the 45 grid points of the stainless steel toothed disc. Thanks to this 3-part ring drive system, every step is immediately converted into propulsion without much idle travel.
The carbon rims developed and manufactured by Duke for gravel use are made for tough off-road use with their large internal width and the high approved system weight. They will definitely not let you down. You have the option of driving very wide tires, which increases comfort and grip. They are also tubeless compatible, which reduces the risk of punctures.
Impeller construction at R2-Bike
Our wheels are assembled entirely by hand by our wheel builders. During the entire construction, it is important that not only the concentricity is right, but also that the spoke tension is as even as possible. The special care allows us to give a lifetime guarantee against broken spokes, as long as this is not caused by violence!
You will also receive the following services with our wheels:
A universal impeller bag for all common sizes.
A spare spoke + nipple in all required spoke lengths to be able to repair the impeller at short notice even after an accident.
A free initial check of the impeller, where the resulting work is completely free! Only shipping costs are charged.
A crash replacement promise. If your wheel is damaged due to force majeure, we will rebuild your wheel once. We grant a 100% discount on all labor costs and only charge for the material!
