For a steady-Eddy company like Chris King to introduce a new product, there must be a good reason. Chris King Precision Components introduced its 150mm rear ISO hub model, designed for freeride and downhill bikes, at the Downieville Classic in Downieville, California on July 14.
Featuring an aluminum hubshell and spinning on Chris King stainless
steel sealed bearings, the King ISO 150 rear hub was seen first by
attendees and participants of the feel-good mountain bike celebration
of the West. The weekend event, home to a 17-mile downhill race, also
saw Chris King himself behind the griddle serving up his famous
pancakes for breakfast and fajitas for lunch to all.
The ISO 150 rear hub joins the King line-up of ISO disc hubs including
ISO Disc front (110mm QR) and rear (135mm QR & Bolt-on), ISO 20mm
front hub and ISO 24mm front hub.
