Chris King R45 Ceramic was chosen the as the top of the range hub for the Fleet Wheelsets. The 218g R45 Ceramic hub was designed 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 Campagnolo compatible. 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 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. The bold choice of a Chris King hub will set your wheel apart from the standard pack of factory wheels.
