Product Description
R45 Disc Road Rear Hubs by Chris King
Cyclists have long gravitated toward Chris King components for a variety of reasons, one of which is that everything it produces is still manufactured in the USA, using only the best parts available. And when you combine that with the notorious reliability and serviceability that comes with all of King's products, it's not hard to see why this tradition lives on. These same qualities are found in King's new R45 Disc Road Rear Hubs, which were built to handle the rigors of road and cyclocross racing, where durability and smooth-rolling reliability is a must.

These rings slide over one another while coasting, but a spring ensures engagement when you pressure the pedals forward. King manufactures all of its stainless steel bearings in-house, with each hand-checked for precision and built with a resilient sealing system. These silky bearings run smooth from the get-go, and the overall hub design lends itself to easy service when the time comes. King's strong, cons...
