Chris King GRD23 RD45D 24/24 Disc Clincher Wheelset: The GRD23 is not like other wheels in many respects. Itís an all-road wheel that offers you a bit more compliance than other carbon all-road wheels. Having said that, itís not soft. Itís not noodly. Itís just a bit friendlier to your bones when you ride it on all the stuff you ride.

The GRD23 rim is made of FusionFiber, a cutting edge thermoplastic that incorporates long-chain polymers. Without diving into the science, FusionFiber has a wider range of compliance profiles, and that means we could tune this wheel to hit a sweet spot in road feel that we didnít see being served by more performance-oriented carbon wheelsets that focus on using resin to create unforgiving stiffness.

Unlike other carbon rims, the GRD23 rim is recyclable. If you manage to break it somehow, Chris King will take it back and make it into something new.

Another reason you want this wheelset is that itís built around our R45D Centerlock hubs, the culmination of over 45 years of bearing experience and more than 20 years of hub building experience. It features a redesigned RingDrive system with 45 teeth for lower drag and near instant simultaneous engagement, a lightweight hub body, and our legendary made-in-house bearings.

Those bearings, both steel and ceramic, have heat-treated, surgical grade steel races machined in tandem to ensure perfect matching. The quality and speed of our bearings is what you feel (and hear) on every ride. As the tracks on Chris King bearing break in and burnish they 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 angry-bee sound and you can choose from a bunch of sharp hub colors, including basic black.
