Besides the new Chris King bottom bracket we just posted about, there are a few other cool products they’re launching over the next couple of months. Ã‚Â First up is the addition of their 10th color…Brown! Ã‚Â Then, they’ve gone and made three alternative ways to mount your front wheel to your fork. Ã‚Â Hit the “more” link for the full scoop and lots of pics.
Here’s the entire range shown in the new Brown color:
Besides the new color, King’s playing with the way there colors are represented. Ã‚Â While some companies just keep making their logos larger and more blatant, King’s making theirs harder to see. Ã‚Â The pic above is black, and you can see the difference between the original and the new “Sotto Voce” scheme. Ã‚Â Say it fast and it sounds like “Side of OJ”, which is what I thought their rep was saying until I saw the sign below:
For those of you running bigger forks, King is now making a 15mm Thru-Axle design to fit some of the new forks.
But let’s say you don’t have the coin to get a fancy new fork, then what? Ã‚Â Well, have no fear. Ã‚Â They’re making the new ISO FunBolts and Bolt On front hub. Ã‚Â This hub uses standard Quick-Release hub sizing to fit in most current and older suspension forks, but by using a bolt-on system, they get the stiffness up closer to what you’d get from a thru-axle design.
Lastly, they’ve also put together a front hub that can switch hit between 15mm and 20mm thru-axles and 24mm clamp on forks. Ã‚Â Of course, you’ll probably want to run your hub with the disk brake on the other side…
