Just one hub left in Sour Green Apple!
This is Chris King's most serious, dedicated road bike hub, engineered to be strictly for road.
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 102 grams, the R45 is 20% lighter than Chris King Classic bicycle hubs. Match this front hub with a Chris King rear R45 hub for a complete hub set that weighs in at only 317 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's hubs makes them a precision component that you will be proud to own for years to come.
