About Chris King
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.

As with every Chris King bearing, these stainless steel sealed bearings featured on the R45 hub are made in-house in Portland, Oregon and individually hand-checked for precision and smoothness. The proprietary bearing design allows placement of more rolling elements per bearing meaning greater durability and precision. 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.
