Chris King R45 Hub Set
Chris King really bring it when it comes to hand made in the USA - they are no doubt King.
Made in Portland Oregon from locally sourced materials Chris King is the company everyone wishes they could be and makes products that do these ideals proud.
The R45 hubset is 20% lighter than the Classic hubset. with a sleek new hubshell bodies and new 17 mm axles. That's 17 mm from dropout to dropout resisting deflection during cornering or when the power is full on. Chris King designed a driveshell with a twin bearing design that responsibly removed as much weight as we could from the inner components. Even our patented RingDrive engagement system was redeveloped resulting in a quiet, fast-engaging 45-tooth stainless steel system unique to the R45 rear hub.
Chris King designed and built a bearing specifically for the R45 hubset. As with every King bearing, these stainless steel sealed bearings are made in-house in Portland, Oregon and individually hand-checked for precision and smoothness. Our proprietary bearing design allows us to place 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.
