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.
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.
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.
The majority of products sold on our website have a 1-3 day processing time to prepare each order for shipment. In some cases this can take up to 5 days especially with the wide range of different colored components we sell such as hubs, headsets and bottom brackets.
In order to offer you the widest possible selection of colors, specs and sizes we assemble many products on demand according to your order.
Once your order ships you will receive an automated email from ShipStation, our shipping platform with tracking information (please check your SPAM folder if you dont see this). We ship the majority of orders using USPS First Class Mail (both domestic & International) which provides cost effective rates, especially to overseas locations. However, USPS is not the fastest shipping service and can take a week or more to reach some locations in Europe, Asia and Australia so please bear this in mind if you are in a rush, and select one of our expedited shipping options.
Finally, while were happy to ship anywhere in the world, orders do sometimes get held up in customs or with foreign postal services. Both of these are outside of our control and are the responsibility of the customer to follow up on any delay or additional duties that may be payable.
