Chris King Adds Carbon Mountain Bike Wheel Options, XD Driver Upgrade Option
In April, Chris King announced their XD Driver Body freehub option, giving SRAM 11-speed users a way to add their existing King hubs/wheels to their 1×11 bike.
Now, they’re making that available as an upgrade option on prebuilt wheels, and they’ve got a new hoop to show them off. Technically, it’s an upgraded wheelset, but there’s a lot new about it. Their Carbon Race Trail wheelset is now built up with ENVE’s new M60 forty rims and come standard with ceramic bearings. And they’re promising to ship them within 14 days of ordering.
Need something more aggressive? Look for new Chris King Carbon Race All Mountain wheels built with the ENVE M70 thirty rims, coming soon.
Retail on the Carbon Race Trail is $2,850 with standard freehub body. Add $40 for XD driver body. Weights are 1560g for the 27.5″ wheelset and 1600g for 29er.
