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 11-speed Shimano compatible Chris King R45 hub features a wider 11-speed cassette driveshell while maintaining standard road 130mm axle spacing for seamless integration. A driveshell spacer is included so this 11-speed hub can also be used with Shimano 9 and 10-speed groups.
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 options.
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 223.5 grams, the R45 is much lighter than Chris King® Classic bicycle hubs. Match this rear hub with a Chris King® front R45 hub for a complete hub set that weighs in at only 325.5 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 make them a precision component that you will be proud to own for years to come.
