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 bike.

These are beautiful hubs, designed and built to last in a range of axle sizes, drillings and eye-popping colours. With either Steel or Ceramic bearing options, and Chris King’s commitment to product support, they may well be the last hubs you ever buy. Driven by the Chris King Ring-Drive, engagement is fast and freewheeling accompanied by the famous “Buzz”.

Available to order online, the range of combinations means these hubs can take a little time for delivery. Please be patient: you will be contacted with an accurate ETA as soon as possible.
