Campagnolo fans rejoice. Thanks to Chris King, you can now purchase a super lightweight hub that is just as reliable as the rest of your Campagnolo drivetrain. This is a great alternative to heavier high spoke count hubs or pre-built wheels from the manufacturer. We offer these R45 Campy specific hubs in several colors and spoke options to choose from.
Tipping the scales at a scant 215 grams, the R45 is insanely light without compromising build quality or durability to get there. This is due to Chris King's sensibility when it comes to designing a product. Weight loss is achieved through a cleverly designed hub mechanism that is primarily machined out of alloy to incredibly tight tolerances.
Beyond low weight, the hub functions flawlessly and is completely serviceable and adjustable. The low friction bearing seals allow the hub to spin without drag while the titanium 45-tooth engagement drive provides almost instant engagement. The 17mm one-piece alloy axle provides plenty of strength and stiffness. These Chris King rear R45 hubs are compatible with all Campagnolo 9, 10 and 11 speed drivetrains.
These Chris King R45 hubs are compatible with all Campagnolo 9, 10 and 11 speed drivetrains.
