Chris King R45
One of the biggest name in the bicycle industry, the Chris King R45 is indeed a mark of its commitment to high quality and durable components. It's no secret that Chris King hubs choose to invest in making their own proprietary bearings rather than selecting the standard bearings. In the R45, some of these bearings are sealed with a thin rubber and a snap ring is further pressed onto them. This ensures the longevity of the bearings while keeping out any unwanted foreign particles like dirt and moisture.
While the name R45 is an indication that the rear hub has a 45 points engagement, however it's patented ring drive enhances the feel of instant engagement the moment you step on your pedals. Not forgetting the signature Chris King Buzz when you start coasting on these hubs.
Lastly, the anodise finish appears like a gloss mirror surface which set its aesthetic quality apart from its competitors.
