Pretty much everyone who has a Chris King headset or a set of Chris King hubs already knows that the colorful, American-made components are built to last. Now a new King Lifetime Warranty makes it official – offering true lifetime protection for the original owner of any newly bought King headset, hub, bottom bracket & house-built carbon wheels, including bearings, with a guarantee of free repair or service to get you riding again.
King Lifetime Warranty on Chris King headsets, hubs & BBs
Chris King components don’t come cheap, but their precision components really have always been built to last. And they have always been serviceable. My wife & I personally have at least four wheelsets with King hubs more than a decade old, plus some headsets more than twice that age, several of which have been reinstalled more than once, often outlasting their original bikes.
King Cycle Group have always strongly backed up the performance & durability of their bearings and machined aluminum products since they started crafting them back in 1976. A large part of that has been a mission towards environmental sustainability, but also just a commitment to high-quality products.
Now Chris King just made it official. All new headsets, hubs & BBs, plus wheelsets laced to Santa Cruz Reserve or Enve carbon rims (and all of their bearings inside) sold since Jan 1, 2019 are eligible for lifetime backing for the original owner. You have to prove you bought them with a receipt, so King recommends registering new products within 30 days or purchase.
Then, if you ever have any problem that keeps your King component from functioning properly, you submit a claim and Chris King will either direct you to a local dealer for service & repair, instruct you how to service simple adjustments, or have you send the part directly back to them to be repaired – all for free.
Sounds like now, you just have to pick which color ano headset, BB & hubset will look best on your bike!
