ceramic ball bearings with Chris King's proven sealing system for greater

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 special too, 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.
Ultralight at only 99 grams, the R45
is much lighter than Chris King® Classic bicycle hubs. Match
this front hub with a Chris King® rear R45 hub with ceramic
bearings for a complete hub set
that weighs in at only 315 grams.
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 makes them
a precision component that you will be proud to own for years to come.
