This is Chris King's most serious, dedicated road bike hub, engineered to be strictly for road, and compatible with 6-bolt ISO disc brake rotors. Because of the specially designed flange, this hub requires 2 or 3 cross lacing.**One Only - Discontinued Green Color. 24h. Rear. Shimano Driveshell **
This 11-speed Shimano compatible Chris King R45 rear hub features an 11-speed cassette driveshell with road 135mm axle spacing. 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.
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, and at only 276 grams, the R45 is much lighter than Chris King Classic bicycle hubs.
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.
