Q & A

Chris King hubs have a well-earned reputation in the marketplace. Whether for their long-wearing durability or their ease of service, King hubs are a favourite of shop mechanics and tech editors the world over.

Loosely based on Chris King's Classic hub, the R45 has been crafted with a smaller and sleeker shell and a new 17mm axle for stiffness under power and cornering.

Chris King ceramic bearings are build to the same exacting standards as the classic, time-tested stainless steel ball models. Pairing the corrosion resistance of ceramic balls with the proven sealing system allows for greater flexibility with greasing options. R45 ceramic hubs are built with a very small amount of silicone-based lube for a system with very low drag. Take advantage of the user-serviceable bearings and run minimal lubrication for the ultimate in race-day performance. R45 bearings also feature lightweight, low-friction seals for fast rolling and can be easily serviced at regular intervals using only a single 2.5 mm hex wrench and penknife.

Backed up by Chris King's 5 year warranty.
