The Chris King R45 Centrelock Hub combines a lightweight hub shell, legendary bearings, and a stiff one-piece axle with centrelock disc rotor compatibility to harness the increased power and modulation of disc brakes on your road or gravel bike.

Considered by many to be the pinnacle of bicycle hub engineering, Chris King R45 Centrelock hubs are available in a range of beautifully anodised colours, including limited editions, with either steel or ceramic bearings. Their Lifetime Warranty and Chris Kings commitment to product support ensures they may well be the last hubs you ever buy.

Driven by the Chris King Ring-Drive, engagement is fast and efficient, with freewheeling accompanied by the famous buzz.
