RCG36 Disc, Chris King CLD Shimano/SRAM drive
The RCG36 (Road/Cross/Gravel) is a 36mm deep, 21.5mm internal/28.5mm external width, 420g disc specific tubeless ready 700c rim that covers everything you might want to do on a drop-bar bike. The soft v shape provides aerodynamic benefit while negating any crosswind handling issues that deeper rims can cause. Time trial fast, climbing wheel light, light armored vehicle tough. You'll want to use it on every ride.
Chris King hubs need little introduction but here we go anyhow. Built in Portland, OR to maniacal quality standards, King hubs feature their own in-house made bearings and a unique, ultra durable and reliable drive mechanism. Both SRAM/Shimano and XD drive are available (this order page is for Shimano/SRAM drive). Matte slate, matte jet and mango also available as color options, they just don't fit in the product page. If you need a 15mm front hub, King has a hub for you but it's not an R45 so just contact us.
Laced with black Sapim CX Rays and black brass nipples (other options available as custom orders), 2x crossing throughout. Includes tubeless ready rim tape (the best for tubes, too).
