Q & A

A lightweight disc compatible hubset designed for the new era of disc brake equipped road and cyclocross bikes.

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.

R45 hubs are 10/11spd compatible and available in Shimano/SRAM or Campagnolo versions. Like all Chris King hubsets the R45s are designed to be easily upgradeable and convertible. Changing one version to another is simple, only requiring the use of version specific Driveshell assemblies and axles.

Backed up by Chris King's 5 year warranty.
