Legendary Chris King Quality, Now With In-House Rims—The Complete Package
The Chris King GRD23 is comfortable on the road and extra-comfortable off it. They are hyper-versatile. They love all your tires. They love all the places you want to point your bike.
The GRD23 wheel is part of their first generation wheels to use CK's proprietary carbon hoops. The company got the opportunity to participate in the development of a new rim, tuned to their performance specs, and made of a recyclable material that doesn't add to landfills.
This tracks with Chris King's commitment to the environment and being a certified B - corp. Performance, good looks, minimal carbon impact, AND backed up by a lifetime warranty? Yes please.
The result is an all-road wheel that offers you a bit more compliance than other carbon all-road wheels. It's not soft, just a bit friendlier to your bones when you ride on less than smooth surfaces. Hit the pavement with the FusionFiber™ rims, made of a ground breaking thermoplastic alternative to traditional carbon fiber custom tuned to hit a sweet spot in road feel not provided by other wheels.
The GRD23 rims are paired with Chris King R45D Centerlock hubs and their RingDrive™ system with 45 points of engagement for lower drag and near instant simultaneous engagement.
The quality and speed of Chris King bearings is what you will feel (and hear) on every ride. As Chris King bearing tracks 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.
