Chris King designed the 224g 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. The hub is 11-speed Shimano and Camagnolo compatible. All Chris King hubs are manufactured in Portland, Oregon.

Unique to the R45 rear hub is the King patented 45 tooth RingDrive engagement system, creating a quieter, faster engaging freehub body.

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.

Yes. The Campagnolo version ships with a lock ring compatible with Campagnolo cassettes that start with an 11 tooth cog. A separate lock ring is required if you run a cassette with a 12 tooth cog. http://www.wheelbuilder.com/chris-king-r45-cassette-cog-lock-ring-campy.html
