If you’re a die-hard Chris King fan and only run 6-bolt rotors, you’re likely painfully aware of the absence of those hubs in the lineup. According to Chris King, they were capacity-limited during the pandemic, and they made the tough call of discontinuing 6-bolt mountain hubs. They also figured that since centerlock-to-6-bolt adapters existed, riders would still be able to use their hubs with 6-bolt rotors.
But fans of 6-bolt rotors are generally also fans of keeping it simple and adding another adapter to the mix doesn’t qualify. Chris King knows this, and is happy to announce the return of their 6-bolt Boost mountain hubs!
Available only in Boost spacing, you’ll have the typical CK options of steel or ceramic bearings, Shimano HG, Micro Spline, or SRAM XD freehubs, and 28 or 32h drilling. The rear hubs are 148 x 12, and the front is available in either 110 x 20 or 110 x 15. There’s also a choice of eight colors.
Available starting April 2nd, pricing will be $322/$333 for the front (15/20mm) and $588 for the rear. As with all Chris King products, they carry the King Lifetime Warranty.
