HED + Chris King

The HED Belgium has gone by a few names, but it has always been the first choice for gravel riders who prefer an alloy wheel, now paired with Chris King R45 hubs for an amazing wheelset to carry you over the rough roads of the world.

In 700c, this is a quiver killer wheelset, taking tires from 32mm on up to 45mm and beyond. At any size, you're looking at a versatile, bombproof alloy gravel wheel with easy tubeless set up and a wider rim profile that lets you run lower tire pressures. What's not to like?

The Chris King Difference

The Chris King R45 Centerlock™ hubs pair a lightweight hub body with their legendary, made-in-house bearings. They give you 45-points of simultaneous engagement, and that means more of your power gets to the ground and your traction is better. These hubs roll better, last longer, and looks way more handsome than anything else out there. The stiffness of the one-piece axle translates to laser-precise bike handling.

CK bearings, both steel and ceramic, have heat-treated, surgical grade steel races that are machined simultaneously to ensure perfect matching. The quality and speed of these bearings is what you will feel (and hear) on every ride. As Chris King bearing tracks burnish they get actually get faster. A little bit of regular love (i.e. service) will keep this hub rolling for years upon years of demanding use.

This wheelset comes with the legendary CK "angry-bee" sound and you can choose from a bunch of sharp hub colors, including basic black.
