All of this comes with the standard Chris King 5-Year Warranty and is compatible with Campagnolo 9,10 and 11 speed drivetrains. Lock Rings The R45 for Campagnolo comes standard with an 11-tooth lock ring which is required for use with the Chris King driveshell. An optional 12-tooth lock ring is also available at your favorite shop or directly from Chris King. Fast 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 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.
