We are honored to
offer you this Chris King® R45 hub as an authorized Chris King® dealer.
This is Chris King's most serious, dedicated road bike hub, engineered to be
strictly for road. This hub is compatible
with Campagnolo 9, 10 and 11 speed drivetrains.
features ceramic bearings, offering the corrosion resistance of
ceramic ball bearings with Chris King's proven sealing system for greater
flexibility with greasing options. The ceramic bearing R45 hubs are
built with a very small amount of silicone-based lube for a system with
very low drag. With these user-serviceable bearings you can run minimal
lubrication for the ultimate in race-day performance.
This R45 Campagnolo Compatible Rear Hub comes
standard with an 11-tooth lock ring, but you may choose a 12-tooth lock
ring above at no extra cost.
Ultralight at only 216.5 grams, the R45
is much lighter than Chris King® Classic bicycle hubs. The driveshell
utilizes a twin bearing design that removes weight from the inner
components, and a new patented RingDrive engagement system was redeveloped
creating a quiet, fast-engaging 45-tooth stainless steel system unique
to the R45 rear hub. R45 hubs also offer low spoke count
Because of the specially designed flange, this hub is radial lacing
compatible. The bearings are a reduced size
implementation of Chris King's time tested and proven hub bearings. For
extra smoothness and very low rolling resistance, low friction bearing
seals are used in this hub.
Because we are an authorized dealer, you also get a full 5 year
worry-free warranty no matter where in the world you are. Like a
fine watch, the meticulous craftsmanship of Chris King® hubs make them
a precision component that you will be proud to own for years to come.
