When You Need Uncompromising Performance
Ultra-lightweight, and ready to rail for long and fast days in the saddle. Built to the Chris King R45D hubs, riding ENVE G23 rims feel like you've gained a sixth sense and lost ten pounds. These wheels are ready for adventurous all-road pursuits, and the inevitable high-speed impacts.
The ENVE G23 is ultra-lightweight, without compromise. This bell-shaped rim features ENVE's wide hookless bead design drastically reducing pinch flats and increasing durability. Engineered for high volume slicks (35-40mm) and gravel tires with tread from 35-45mm. ENVE rims are made in Ogden, Utah, and backed by a five-year warranty. Tubeless-ready to reduce weight and rolling resistance, in addition to providing a more supple ride with increased traction. 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.
Chris King bearings have 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 Chris King 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 their hubs and bearings are fully serviceable for years upon years of demanding use.
The patented Chris King RingDrive with 45-points for the R45D will get your power to the ground fast, provide unmatched engagement, and give you that legendary Chris King angry-bee sound.
