Chris King

The performance benchmark since 1976.

Legendary Quality & Performance

Carefully perfected through stringent production and testing protocols, Chris King has been building performance components using quality materials carefully sourced from domestic mills since 1976.

Chris King Gen 4

Gen 4 Chris King hubs feature small tweaks that update the hub system with universalized drivers and axles. The aim of these upgrades is to lower hub coversion costs and increase longevity by making G4 parts cross-compatible, backwards compatible, and easier to service. Chris King states, “Once outfitted with the Gen 4 system, transitioning to different drive systems will cost just $80 [USD]. This represents a significant reduction compared to our previous conversion kits priced at $380 [USD] in 2023” (Chris King, 2024). The Chris King hubs we carry feature this update as of Chris King’s announcement in May.

Durable Bearings

Chris King bearings are precision manufactured in-house. They’re exceptionally durable and due to their unique sealed angular-contact design, bearings actually adapt and improve with use. 

Patented Technology

Chris King hubs are built with their patented RINGDRIVETM technology offering 72 points of simultaneous engagement (45 points in R45 road hubs) and are capable of handling an industry-leading 800ft/lbs of torque.

Easy to Service

Chris King hubs are also well constructed making maintenance minimal and easy. We suggest carefully reading their servicing guide before attempting maintenance on your own.

Made to Last

With 40 years of experience as industry leaders, Chris King backs up their hubs with a lifetime warranty supporting their top tier claim.

Available Chris King Options

Chris King hubs used to be solely available in centerlock, but we are now thrilled to be the source for 6-bolt Chris King sets. There have been minor tweaks to the hub shell measurements to accommodate the transition to 6-bolt, as well as adjustments to the 6-bolt internals to better improve compatibility. All Chris King hubs also use the same rear axle across freehubs, which makes conversions a breeze.
