Stans NoTubes Valor, Chris King R45D XD Drive
Lighter and stronger than aluminum rims, the Valor’s carbon rim lay-up is engineered to absorb radial vibrations and impacts adding suspension to a bike. Non-compliant heavy rims that deliver a harsh, abusive ride have become the standard from most companies producing carbon rims. The ZTR Valor utilizes a construction that is both elastic and strong. Stan's NoTubes has constructed a lightweight carbon fiber rim design not just to be stronger than aluminum but also to perform better in real world riding conditions.
R45D hubs combine a lightweight hub body, our legendary made-in-house bearings, and a six-bolt rotor mount to harness the power of disc brakes. The result is the increased power and modulation of disc brakes, the fast, smooth rolling speed of our bearings, and the rail steering from our one piece solid axles. And the Chris King hub colors are legendary.
