Chris King products have an unparalleled reputation for excellence in the MTB world, and it’s easy to see why. Cycling Malaysia reviews some major highlights from their product line, and gives you the rundown on why Chris King’s reputation is well-deserved.
Chris King hubs are extremely durable, reliable and long lived, mainly because of the high levels of quality control used in their manufacture, and very robust sealing system that allows the bearing and free hub to continue turning under the worst off-road conditions.
Chris King makes their own bearings, and the patented RingDrive™ engagement system allows riders to engage the hub 3 times quicker than standard systems.
In keeping with their reputation for high performance bearings on bikes, Chris King bottom brackets show their customary high attention to detail and quality. Designed to work with a variety of OEM and aftermarket cranks, there is a Chris King bottom bracket for almost any fitment. Again, all Chris King bearings are made in house and the bearings just last, no matter how much abuse a rider can throw at them. The anodised finishing comes in 9 different colours, letting a rider match the bottom bracket to the frame, and the coating lasts despite hard use.
…the high levels of quality control used in their manufacture, and robust sealing system allows the bearing and free hub to continue turning under the worst off-road conditions.
Perhaps the most well-known product to Malaysian MTB riders from Chris King is the ‘NoThreadset’. Many riders have upgraded their OEM headset to Chris King, and none have had any regrets. The NoThreadset has been upgraded with the GripLock upper bearing cap that uses a new compression design. Doing away with the old o-ring type assembly, the upgraded system uses a split compression ring to provide a safer and more secure headset installation. As always, Chris King products are fully serviceable, and thoroughly sealed against the mud and dirt of off-roading.
This year’s flavour of choice in headsets is Chris King’s Sour Apple Limited Edition colour, adding bling to your bike along with Chris King’s unrivalled quality and durability.
For rider’s looking to enhance the performance of their bike, increasing reliability and durability, look no further than Chris King’s range of hubs, bottom brackets and headsets.
