Launched this weekend at the Chris King Open House event (stay tuned for more in depth coverage and photos...) are 2 brand new colors, Violet and Matte Bourbon.
The polished Violet (aka Purple) is available now in all current Chris King hubs, headsets and bottom brackets. We're working on adding the new color option to the AVT site so in the meantime if you'd like to get your hands on this sweet new color, just place the order with a different color and let us know in the notes section of the checkout that you'd like Violet.
Matte Bourbon is still a little way off and is scheduled for release around Dec 2nd, but we're taking pre-orders now as it will be a limited edition release. SO as with Violet if you want to make sure you don't miss out on this limited edition color, just place your order with one of the current colors, and let us know in the notes section of the checkout.
In the meantime, enjoy these awesome photos of the new colors...
This week's wheel build of the week is another super versatile gravel set up that's equally at home on road or CX.
Astral's Wanderlust Carbon rim is originally designed as a lightweight adventure / gravel rim capable of running up to 2.5" tires. But given their rim profile (23mm internal, 29mm external) they can perform double (or triple) duty as a pure road rim or cyclo-cross race wheelset.
