Chris King R45 Disc Hubs

A lightweight disc compatible hubset designed expressly for the new era of disc brake equipped road and cyclocross bikes.
Our high performance R45 Disc hubs are built to meet the requirements of the world’s most demanding road and cyclocross riders with the long-term performance, durability, and serviceability that you expect from Chris King components. We equip our R45 Discs with the same race proven 45 point RingDrive engagement system and exceedingly smooth in-house.
These hubs feature an exquisitely machined 6-bolt disc mount that melds current disc mount specifications with elegant design for a beautiful finish and seamless integration. The front hub retains traditional 100mm spacing while the rear hub is designed around 135mm spacing, which has been established as the industry standard for disc compatible road and cyclocross bicycles.
The stainless-steel R45 Disc bearings are made in-house in Portland, Oregon and individually hand-checked for precision and smoothness. Our proprietary bearing design allows us to place more rolling elements per bearing meaning greater durability and precision. Our bearings also feature lightweight, low-friction seals for fast rolling and can be easily serviced at regular intervals using only a single 2.5 mm hex wrench and penknife.

ENVE 7.8 SES Disc Tubeless Ready Rims

What is it?

A revolutionary new disc brake specific, aerodynamic, carbon fiber triathlon and time trial rim. The SES 7.8 Disc is both aerodynamically and structurally optimized for use with disc brakes.

Who is it for?

Road racers and triathletes on modern disc brake equipped aero road and triathlon bikes will benefit from the SES 7.8 Disc's reduced drag, light weight, and rim shape optimized for larger volume road tires

Why did we make it?

Many modern road bikes are now equipped with disc brakes and the triathlon superbikes of tomorrow will be as well. The elimination of a braking surface opens up the realm of aerodynamic and structural possibilities. When you don't have to engineer a flat braking surface that must manage high temperatures from braking you can reduce the rim's weight, adjust the rim shape for improved aerodynamics and provide better tubeless performance.

Disc brakes are beginning to appear on the most aerodynamic bikes in the world and the SES 7.8 is ready. While most wheel manufacturers simply repurpose their rim brake optimized wheel models into disc brake wheels by covering brake tracks with decals and adding disc hubs and more spokes, this leaves substantial amounts of performance on the table. Removing the constraints of a braking surface on the rim allow us to completely rethink the shape of the rim and more specifically the brake track area itself. The SES 7.8 Disc features patented SES rim curvature that has been optimized for disc brakes. Additionally, the SES 7.8 Disc carbon fiber clinchers and tubulars are much lighter because the material used for heat management has been eliminated. With no braking surface, the rim can be made more aerodynamically efficient and impact resistant. Finally, the SES 7.8 carbon clincher is tubeless compatible and can also be run with standard inner tubes and tires. Like all of the current generation SES carbon clinchers and tubulars, the SES 7.8 Disc has been aerodynamically optimized around fast rolling 25mm tires.

Sapim CX Ray Black Spokes

As light as a titanium spoke, the CX-Ray still receives the best results in fatigue testing of any spoke. Its unique strength and flexibility make the CX-Ray suitable for most bicycle disciplines. The middle section of the spoke is drawn then pressed in a special mould to form its specific profile. CX-Ray spokes are used by top bike racers and triathletes around the world. Even downhillers use them, recognizing their strength and flexibility. Special alloy treatment and sophisticated production make this all possible. The CX-Ray fits is all standard hub holes.
No more extra hub hole design; the hub manufacturer's guarantee is unaffected.
Almost as light as Titanium.
More long lasting than any other spokes on the market.Extremely high fatigue test results
Special alloy treatment and sophisticated production.
The best aerodynamic spoke available.
Produced from high-tensile, fatigue-resistant 18/8 stainless steel conforming to the Sapim quality standard specifications.

Spoke Count - 24h front & rear
