Chris King R45 Road Racing Front Hub
Chris King Hub Colors Chris King R45 front hub in blue from Wheelbuilder.com

Chris King designed the R45 hub with the goal of creating a lighter hub that could meet the demands of road racing. Inside the sleek hub body is a stiff 17mm alloy axle for superior performance under the lateral stresses encountered in corners and aggressive sprints. All Chris King hubs are manufactured in Portland, Oregon.

The fast rolling, stainless steel standard bearings (designed and made in-house by Chris King) feature lightweight low-friction seals and are hand checked before they are installed in the hub. A ceramic bearing upgrade is also available. Built to the same high quality standards as their stainless steel bearings, the ceramic bearings are filled with a minimal amount of low viscosity silicone-based lubrication for the lowest possible drag. King ceramics are designed with more rolling elements per bearing for greater durability and precision. They also offer better corrosion resistance and a weight reduction.

Chris King hubs are available in a wide variety of beautiful colors. Anodized in small batches, each hub has its own unique color and character. The bold choice of a Chris King hub will set your wheel apart from the standard pack of factory wheels.

The R45 is the only front hub in the Chris King line that can be radially laced.
