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.
Match this rear hub up with a Chris King ISO Disc front hub for the most awesome hub set available. The meticulous craftsmanship of these hubs makes them a precision component that you will be proud to own for years to come.
