THIS WHEELSET IS COVERED BY A LIFETIME WARRANTY

Why We Make This
We came out with our own wheel because we got the opportunity to participate in the development of a new rim, a rim that is of outstanding quality, is tuned to our performance specs, and is made of a recyclable material that doesn't add to landfills keeping us in line with our commitment to the environment and being a certified B - corp. Performance, good looks, minimal carbon impact, AND backed up by a lifetime warranty? Yes please.

Why You Want It
The GRD23 is not like other wheels in many respects. It's an all-road wheel that offers you a bit more compliance than other carbon all-road wheels. Having said that, it's not soft. It's not noodly. It's just a bit friendlier to your bones when you ride it on all the stuff you ride.

The GRD23 rim is made of FusionFiberTM, a cutting-edge thermoplastic that incorporates long-chain polymers. Without diving into the science, FusionFiberTM has a wider range of compliance profiles, and that means we could tune this wheel to hit a sweet spot in road feel that we didn't see being served by more performance-oriented carbon wheelsets that focus on using resin to create unforgiving stiffness.

Unlike other carbon rims, the GRD23 rim is recyclable. If you manage to break it somehow, we'll take it back and make it into something new.

Another reason you want this wheelset is that it's built around our R45D Centerlock hubs, the culmination of over 45 years of bearing experience and more than 20 years of hub building experience. It features a redesigned RingDrive™ system with 45 teeth for lower drag and near instant simultaneous engagement, a lightweight hub body, and our legendary made-in-house bearings.

Those bearings, both steel and ceramic, have heat-treated, surgical grade steel races machined in tandem to ensure perfect matching. The quality and speed of our bearings is what you feel (and hear) on every ride. As the tracks on Chris King bearing break in and burnish they actually get faster. A little bit of regular love (i.e. service) will keep this hub rolling for years upon years of demanding use.

This wheelset comes with the legendary angry-bee sound and you can choose from a bunch of sharp hub colors, including basic black.

WHAT EXACTLY DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAY "LIFETIME WARRANTY"?
Lifetime warranty. You hear about it, but it can mean a lot of different things, especially when you get into the fine print. So, this is how it works with our new Chris King Fusion Fiber rims. The main thing to remember is that it doesn't matter if you buy your set from your local dealer or directly from us at chrisking.com. Either way, we've got you covered.

1. Shop online while you're bored at work to find the perfect set of carbon wheels.
2. Decide that the new Chris King wheels (with a Lifetime Warranty) are the way to go!
3. Pick them up from your local Chris King Dealer or order them on chrisking.com
4. Get the wheels, ride wheels, love wheels.
5. In the unlikely event they get damaged because you're just too gnarly, contact your local Chris King Dealer or email info at chrisking.com. We'll send an RA # and shipping label to send us back the wheel.
6. Once we receive it, we will rebuild your wheel with a brand new, box fresh rim and give your hub a proper once over to make sure it is in tip-top shape (free of charge, of course).
7. We ship your wheel back to you so you can get back to having fun on your bike and ship the broken rim off to be recycled.

There it is in black and white: free shipping both ways, a hub tune-up, and prioritized rebuild scheduling. We know it's a big investment and we want to keep you on your bike and stoked on your purchase, for life.
