The Chris King R45 Front Hub combines precision made-in-house bearings, hassle-free longevity and great aerodynamics, all within a low profile hub body that’s purpose built to take on the rigours of road and cyclocross racing.
King designed and built a bearing specifically for the R45 hub set. 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. Their proprietary bearing design allows them 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.
When you’re building your next set of dream wheels, don’t opt for a second choice hub – use the best and you’ll notice the difference almost immediately.
