SuperBoost Hub Spacings Are Now Available
We have a bunch of superboost Chris King hubs in stock, and more on the way! They follow the same centerlock only brake style rule present in both Chris King’s boost/non-boost hub spacings. A pair of Superboost hubs weigh about 458g, with weights varying a little depending on driver choice. For an extensive list of hub weights, including Chris King’s, visit our Hub Weights blog. You can shop Chris King superboost hubs on all of our mountain bike wheels!
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. The latest iteration of their hubs come in at a lighter weight and in a few new colorways.
The most noticeable change to the new line-up of Chris King hubs are that they are now solely available in centerlock. The switch to centerlock saves a few grams when compared to the 6 bolt standard. However, the most noticeable improvement comes from the all new alloy XD driver. The move away from steel saves a whopping 82 grams! There have been minor tweaks to the hub shell measurements to accommodate the transition to centerlock. The new CL MTB hubs all use the same rear axle across freehubs, which makes conversions a breeze. The previous version required a different axle and tension collar for microspline setups.
