Chris King R45 Lightweight Road Racing Rear Hub
Chirs King’s R45 hubs are lightweight and feature a jewel like finish. Their beauty is not only skin deep as these hubs have over 100 professional and elite victories in just 2 years. The Chris King R45 hubset is 20% lighter than the Classic hubset. This diet comes from designing a driveshell with a twin bearing design that carefully removed as much weight as possible from the inner components without compromising safety. Chris King’s patented RingDrive engagement system was redeveloped resulting in a quiet and fast-engaging 45-tooth stainless steel system unique to the R45 rear hub.
Hubs are judged, ultimately, on how they roll and this is where the Chris King R45 excells with their made in Portland stainless steel sealed bearings. Making the bearings in-house allows each bearing to be hand inspected for precision and smoothness. R45 hubs also feature lightweight, low friction seals that can be easily serviced using only a single 2.5mm hex wrench and a pen knife. Find the Chris King R45 Hub Service Manual here.
