Chris King Road R45 Rear Hub - 130mm QR - XDR

£680.00 Out of stock

Colour: Black
Size: 28H - Steel Bearings
Sku: CKEBB1BC4
Overview

The lightweight Chris King Road R45 Rear Hub - 130mm QR - includes a re-design of the King patented RingDrive system, which has 45 teeth for engagement with the hub body, rather than the 75 points of contact that distinguish the original model. This adjustment means there is less drag and the hub's angry bee sound is less noisy that usual. However, the power still reaches the ground wonderfully quickly when you pedal.

Key Features
  • King Lifetime Warranty
  • Legendary made-in-house bearings
  • Patented RingDrive system with 45 simultaneously engaged points of contact for virtually drag free engagement
  • Compatible with standard QR skewers
  • Available with Shimano/SRAM HG or SRAM XDR driveshell
  • Hub spacing of 130mm
  • Easily serviceable with a 2.5mm hex and pick or pen knife
  • Completely re-buildable with our R45 Hub Service Tool
  • Ceramic bearing upgrade available
  • Available in 28h and 32h

The lightweight Chris King Road R45 Rear Hub - 130mm QR - includes a re-design of the King patented RingDrive system, which has 45 teeth for engagement with the hub body, rather than the 75 points of contact that distinguish the original model. This adjustment means there is less drag and the hub's angry bee sound is less noisy that usual. However, the power still reaches the ground wonderfully quickly when you pedal.

It also features an SRAM XDR cassette body and Chris King's trademark smooth surgical steel bearings, which are heat treated and machined simultaneously for perfect matching and get faster as they burnish. A bit of simple servicing will ensure this hub keeps on going, even with a generous share of heavy use and abuse!

The expert craftsmen at Chris King originally designed this R45 Front Hub as the cornerstone of their hub product line, and the hard work and care they put into creating it has paid off, since it achieves a perfect balance between weight, performance, durability and looks.

With a selection of beautifully finished colours, Chris King products add a finishing touch of understated elegance or pop of head-turning colour to suit your riding style.

They're built to last from raw materials sourced in local mills, using environmentally sound manufacturing processes and vigorous quality control. They are also fully rebuildable, and Chris King's Lifetime Warranty means that, if any bearings or other part becomes damaged and hinders the function of your headset, the company will repair it free of charge.
