Chris King has updated their R45 road racing hubs to accommodate the new 11spd drivetrain systems. The new 11spd compatible hub will feature a new slightly longer driveshell and a new axle. R45 11spd maintains a strict 130mm axle spacing for seamless integration.

- Light -
The R45 hubset is 20% lighter than Classic hubset.

Chris King designed and built a bearing specifically for the R45 hubset. As with every King bearing, these stainless steel sealed bearings are made in-house in Portland, Oregon and individually hand-checked for precision and smoothness.

- R45 Options -

R45 rear hubs are available in 20, 24, 28, & 32 hole options

At Urbane we believe that how a wheel is built, is as important as the components with which it is built. We build all of our wheels to exacting standards including spoke length, spoke tension, spoke-count and stress relieving.

On the technical side of things, our build process includes repetitive spoke stress relief, meticulous tension measurement/balancing, and truing tolerances of less than .5mm.

We stand behind every wheel we build and offer complimentary truing for 5 years on any wheel we build. If a spoke ever breaks that has not been obviously damaged by impact we will replace it free of charge.

For more information please check our Hand-built wheel page or call our Service department on the phone number at the top of the page.
