Rail 55, Chris King R45, Pre-order

Regular price $1,436.00

That's right, Rails are back. 55mm deep, 18mm inside width, 25mm outside. Tubed or tubeless. Grooved brake track. Built with black CX Rays and black brass nipples. Rim tape, brake pads, and sexy "whoosh" sound included. 

Road racing, crits, the Wednesday Night Worlds, Saturday Morning Smashfest - these are your wheels. Wide enough for sure footed cornering and aerodynamic benefits with a 25mm tire, but they'll still fit in your frame and allow your brakes to work correctly. 

PLEASE NOTE: Chris King hubs are currently severely backordered and lead time is about 120 days from order. Please also note that King no longer produces 20h front hubs or 24h rear hubs, so these are laced 24/28.

Carbon rim brake braking has come a long way in the past decade, and Rails will provide excellent all conditions braking in "normal" flat to rolling terrain. We do not recommend Rails or any other carbon clinchers for use in mountainous territory with continuous demand for heavy braking.
