VeloTech, we are honored to offer you this Chris King® hub as an authorized
Chris King® dealer.
hub comes standard with heat-treated stainless steel drive and driven rings
as well as a heat-treated stainless steel driveshell. It’s the perfect hub
for tandem cyclists who want world-class performance along with light weight
in a hub that can stand up to the abuse of 2 powerful riders.
Chris King® hubs are truly engineering masterpieces. They're light, super strong, and very user serviceable. In fact, a hex wrench and a pen knife are all you need for regular maintenance.
Chris King® rear hubs are the only hubs that use their patented RingDrive™
engagement mechanism. Unlike traditional hubs that have relatively few
engagement points, the Chris King® RingDrive™ engagement mechanism uses 72
teeth on each drive ring, making it engage over 3 times faster than a
typical 24 tooth pawl-type freehub. The unique RingDrive™ engagement
mechanism provides you with instant, positive forward movement that no other
hub can match. When you start out or go for a surprise attack, you won't
waste any of your precious power moving forward. This hub is super strong
too! Chris King® has found that it has a handling torque load of over
800ft/lbs (1085 Newton meters). That's over three times more than most other
high end hubs that Chris King® has tested. There's no doubt about it... the
Chris King® patented RingDrive™ engagement mechanism is the heart of every
Chris King® rear hub, and it's just one of the precision features that makes
it the best hub you can possibly buy.
This hub also features the Chris King® ultra stiff 19.5mm axle, with a
constant diameter from the bearings to the dropouts. The bearings are
special too, time tested and proven to be the most reliable hub bearings
available. Because we are an authorized dealer, you also get a full 5 year
worry-free warranty no matter where in the world you are.
