CHRIS KING HUBS
Chris King products are probably the most desirable in cycling, and that certainly applies to their legendary hubs. We see these more as a work of art than a simple bicycle product, but look inside and there’s no doubting the superb and intricate engineering that has gone into their construction.
King’s RingDrive mechanism means that the more pressure you put through the pedals, the more positive the engagement. This results in pinpoint accurate pick-up and probably the most efficient hub ever. The quality of Chris King bearings is also something to admire, with every bearing handmade and individually quality checked in-house.
King are so confident in their hubs that each one comes with a five year warranty, surely enough in itself to justify the price tag.
Price: Front £190.99, Rear £378.99
