Matte Bourbon and Matte Violet are here...
If you've seen pictures from some of the recent shows, like the
Rouleur Classic or Philly Bike Expo, over on Instagram you'll
have already seen previews of Chris King's latest special edition
colour options on some gorgeous show builds.
Now they're available to order for everyone, individually or as
part of your new bike build.
A Chris King BB or headset is one of those components that many
of us take from bike to bike over the years, they're that durable,
serviceable and treasurable.
Precision made in the USA, Chris King even produce their own
bearings in-house to ensure absolute control over quality and
specification. The famous buzz of their freehub mechanism is one of
those hidden signs that cyclists use to identify like-minded riders
- a signal that real thought has gone into your bike.
There's a wide range of colours in their permanent collection,
but we're always excited to see which special editions will be
released, for a limited time only.
Matte Violet is available now, and Matte Bourbon from early
December (but you can pre-order now to ensure delivery). The
colours are available across their range of components; headsets,
bottom brackets and hubs.
Both colours work well with a broad spectrum of bikes, the
Bourbon looks particularly awesome on a raw finish Titanium bike
with matte carbon contact points, and the Violet goes brilliantly
with white or cream framesets. The beauty of these though is that
they complement such a range of colours.
We can supply parts separately, build your dream wheelset with
the R45 hubs (they pair particularly well with ENVE rims) or fit
them to your new or existing bike in our workshop - get in touch to discuss options and to order.
