After getting up close and personal with the new Chris King Lefty hubs at Eurobike, the single sided gems are now on their way to bike shops world wide. Available in either the LD or the SuperMax version, the hubs combine to cover the spread of all Cannondale Lefty forks. Built with typical Chris King precision in Portland, Oregon, the hubs are completely rebuildable and come in all standard CK colors including the current Sour Apple Limited edition.
Divided into two separate hubs, the CK ISO Lefty SuperMax is a wider hub meant only for that specific fork. The CK ISO Lefty LD hub on the other hand is not only compatible with all the other Lefty forks, but is convertible to standard 15 and 20mm thru axles as well. Both Lefty hubs come standard with CK’s own stainless steel bearings with ceramic bearings available as an upgrade.
Weight is listed at 215g for the stainless steel/ 211g ceramic SuperMax hub (which Tyler measured 219g at Eurbike), and 200g for the stainless/196g ceramic LD hub. Each hub carries the standard CK 5 year warranty and are available now from your local shop in hub only, or Chris King’s prebuilt wheelsets.
