The Ride:

If you have the legs for it, we have the wheelset that can do it all. This is the workhorse “road” wheelset, we’ll leave it to you to decide what to call a “road”. The HED Belgium R Disc laced to Chris King R45D hubs with Sapim CX-Ray Spokes, our ultra-smooth bearings and lightweight hubshells is the most versatile, race ready, dependable, aluminum “road” wheelset available. 

The Rim:

The HED Belgium R Disc is a versatile rim with a deep cycling heritage. At 25mm wide, the Belgium R Disc will provide a wider tire profile and a rounder contact patch that reduces rolling resistance and creates a more supple ride, and they come tubeless ready to make the ride even smoother. HED goes above and beyond by shot-peening every rim and welding the seam to make them one of the strongest rims available. 

The Hubs:

The Chris King R45D Centerlock is the culmination of over 30 years of bearing experience and more than 20 years of hub building experience. Our R45 rear hub combines a redesigned RingDrive™ system with 45 teeth, for lower drag and near instant engagement, a lightweight hub body, and our legendary made-in-house bearings.

Our bearings, available in steel and ceramic, surgical grade steel races that are machined simultaneously to ensure perfectly matched inner and outer races. The quality and speed of our bearings are what sets us apart from the competition and they are what you will feel and notice on every single ride. As Chris King bearing tracks burnish they get faster with age and all our hubs and bearings are fully serviceable for years upon years of demanding use.

The patented Chris King RingDrive with 45-points of simultaneous engagement will get your power to the ground fast, provide unmatched engagement, and give you that legendary Chris King angry-bee sound.
