Chris King - Interbike 2010

Sep 21, 2010
by Mike Levy  
Like a treasure in the desert, Chris King had their full range of components on display in the heat of Interbike's Outdoor Demo. Included in that lineup was their new 12 x 142 mm hub and axle, as well as an updated headset that uses a split wedge for better reliability on long travel bikes. Inside you can see the photos, read the info, as well as listen to audio from the men behind the changes!

Read on...
Chris King in 2011


Functional bike jewelery exposed. You are staring into the heart of Chris King's beautiful rear hub with all of its inner workings exposed to the public's prying eyes. While the freehub's inner workings remain the same and will probably last much longer than the rest of your bike, King is introducing a new 12 x 142 mm axle option to fit the emerging standard. The new aluminum axle is easily installed and is fitted with durable stainless steel end caps that fit into the recessed dropouts of the 12 x 142 system. It will be available as a stock unit on new hubs or as an upgrade option for older models. While King's components are unarguably more pricey than many other options, the durability of their hubs and the fact that they can be easily configured to new standards make them a smart choice when looking for long lasting reliability.

For many years Chris King's headsets have relied upon an O-ring to align the compression assembly and while it is a simple and mostly effective system, there were certainly some drawbacks to it as well. The O-ring design was not known for being overly reliable on bikes that are being ridden hard, as well as having limited success at compensating for misalignment or steerer tubes that were out of tolerance. For 2011 King has incorporated a new tapered split wedge design that is far better suited to higher loads that are found on bikes that use longer travel forks. No, the technology isn't new, but it is great to see King addressing issues that some riders may have had. Like any of Chris King's evolutions, this system will be available as both an upgrade to certain current models, as well as offered in a new headset. Listen to the audio for more information on headset updates for 2011.

Not only were there new headset internals on display, but new models as well. 2011 sees additions to fit tapered steerer tubes so no one should feel left out.

 Stupid new "standards"(12x142). Shouldn't a standard, you know, be standard?
  • 4 0
 Standards are never standard when they are introduced. They become standard when manufacturers start using them more an more as standard on their products and the industry 'agrees' that it is a standard.
But that does not make a piece of technology less relevant. Check www.pinkbike.com/news/12x142-explained.html>; for more info on 142x12.

 i'm sick of them. really, is it going to be THAT much stiffer or stronger or lighter or whatever reason you have for making stupid new sizes? its a money maker...cause then everybody has to buy into it.

 read the info on it... its to help align the hub with the frame when putting the through axel in Blank Stare

 That makes it even more pointless. I have never had trouble putting a rear on...

 its more to improve the 135x12 system, the flang spacing and the rotor mounts are all the same, just the clap area is farther out.

 Its a small improvement on 135x12. I did have frustrating moments when my hub wasn't aligning as my QR was, so when I got 142x12 on my Scratch, I was happy with the system. Just note that on my Scrath I also got adapters to convert the rear dropout to 135x12. So far as I have read, all bike manufacturers do the same when they sport a 142x12 rear.

 that and im thinking this way there is less pressure directly on the axle, where was now the hub/frame takes the force, just my two cents and what i understand from it 2 cents

 I have never had anything ever fail or break. You shouldn't install it your self then. You should take it to a shop so they can install it correctly. That has been the only time I have seen any problems with Chris King. I really ride and I have never had any problems nor has anyone I ride with and that's a ton of people. Good looking out on fixing the headset issue it hasn't happened to me but something I have heard about. Big ups on the 12 x 142 that's nice for people that have old hubs that get the new standard. If you want something that will out last your bike then buy a King, if you like replacing parts then go a head and buy something else. They have a great warranty's if you have any thing break send it in and boom you have a new one. "Would never ride anything but"
  • 1 1
 Not so man. Some people have luck with them and they have blingin product with nice bearings, but the number one creakiest headset we get in the shop is Chris King. Way less problems come in with basic entry level headsets of other brands. And as for warranty, try calling their warranty department and see how far you get. I used to think Chris King was a good company before I worked at a bike shop.

 they should make bmx hubs. if they did i would so buy one. and not the racing ones. ones built for street. with 9t drivers and all that. it would be the best hub ever.
  • 3 0
 Hope should make a BMX spaced hub too!
  • 2 0
 I agree on CK making BMX hubs. They'd blow G-sport, profile, and all that, outta the water! =P
They'd probably be like $300 per hub though. lol. As for the headset thing, bmx integrated headsets have had the split ring thing forever, how is this new technology?
  • 3 0
 xxirocxx, they do presently make BMX hubs, but they're designed more for racing than street riding or jumping.
  • 2 0
 yeah. i know about the racing ones. but a street one would kill everything. yeah it may be $300 or so, but it would be the last one you would ever buy..

 Once you get the feel of those 72 engagements, you can never ride anything else.. Especially for trials use, these are the best. About other I9s or Hedleys, after 72 engagement, your legs can barely feel the difference between 72 engagement and 120. AND I9s and Hadleys got nothing on Chris Kings reliability.
  • 2 0
 I used to have a true precision stealth, absolutely instant, and I can honestly feel a little difference. to do the math:

average crank: 175mm
175mm times Pi = circumference
circumference = 550 mm

550/72 = 7.6

so that means you'll get a maximum movement of about 7.6mm before engagement at the pedals on a 175mm crank. it's something.
  • 2 0
 It all adds up and there is no doubt that you can feel a difference, but I've heard that the Stealth hubs pay for their near instant engagement with a fair bit of drag. Is this true?
  • 1 0
 I posted a video of the internals: www.youtube.com/watch?v=K76bQm6DOKI

it's tough for me to compare as I don't have the stealth anymore, I'm currently on a king wheelset with much lighter rims and tires.

if I did for whatever reason backpedal, the chain wouldn't slacken. I do remember it rolling pretty smoothly when mounted to the frame.

In hindsight, I should have used a much lighter lubricant when servicing the hub as disassembly was so freakin easy.

I bought that hub used for about $130 and it lasted me for 2 full seasons, I could have replaced the axle bearings and had a perfectly good hub.

from memory, the drag wasn't any worse than the king. it was a fantastic hub, aside from weighing a ton.

 Very pretty bling, props on addressing the headset thing too. However, I've had standard "Aheadsets" and FSA Pigs on multiple rigs with no problems... But, very pretty bling I do say Smile

 Long live Chris King! Ride it, test it, break it. Design it stronger, lighter, and faster. If it wasn't for companies like Chris King we would all be riding around Huffy equivalent bikes that only last a season of riding. We need more companies like this that invest in new technology and force others to step their game up. Sure their stuff is pricey but that's only because they invest a lot more into their products then most. They make their own bearings.....think about that, most wouldn't even try. Long live Chris King! Oh, and their customer service is awesome too.
Rant done, go ride. :-)

 awesome chris king finally admits their headset design is shit. but i love how they've done it they've blamed everyone else for it yeah right, pull your head out of your ass chris king your headset has always been simple but it has NEVER been effective your headset would FAIL by any engineers standards, simply put. if a headset does not actually grab the steerer tube tightly, with a compression ring, as in, NOT an o-ring and a piece of plastic. THERE IS PLAY it will always allow creaking, however slight, or not slight as is usually the case. and will eventually wear a dangerous gouge into your steerer tube. congratulations on finally moving forward with an effective design chris king but don't blame everyone else for the fact that your design has been shit for 20 years p.s. your bearings are amazing, good job there.
  • 8 1
 bigtard,

Where have you been, I've missed you! I've been told by people that would know these things that CK has always had to pay for the Dia-Comp patent, regardless of using an O-ring instead of a split wedge. The O-ring was a conscious decision on their part and was still covered by the patent. While the move to include a split wedge in some of their headsets may look like it is happening because the Dia-Comp patent is/has expired, that isn't the case.

Just a bit of related info.
  • 3 5
 thats possible but i don't personally believe it. regardless. that isn't the point i'm trying to make. the point is. the o-ring steerer tube idea is total crap.
so you're saying they're only putting a split ring in some of their headsets?
sooo... some of their headsets are still totally garbage?
  • 4 0
 Correct, only certain models will come equipped with the split wedge. It will be available separately as well. Strangely enough, the King headset I had many moons ago on my Super 8 (I did say many moons ago) was noise free for the entire time it was on my bike, which was a long time. And that was back when I was quite a hack! Never marked my steerer tube either. But what I had an issue with was bearing life, they went south very quickly. Do they still do that crazy long bearing warranty these days?
  • 4 1
 Wow, bigtard, simmer down a bit, lol. The King headset is great and it's hard to match against others. Plus, I have used better bearings from Japan then what King makes.
  • 4 1
 Mike, CK has a 10-year "no questions asked" warranty on their headsets.
  • 5 0
 10 years! That should be a big selling point for a lot of people. I know that they are expensive, but surely that should be taken into account. Do any other headset besides King's come with a warranty like that?

 hmmm.

mike, guaranteed your chris king headset creaked. it was just so long ago and you weren't as careful a mechanic back then, and you didn't notice, or you don't remember.
and to you other two. the blanket statement of "king headsets are great" is a bit vague. sure your bars turned, but if you understood what i was talking about. you wouldn't disagree.
but clearly you aren't very demanding of your bike parts
so maybe you should just stay out of it?
the ten year warranty is for rich people who aren't demanding of the real qualities of a bike part. who keeps a bike, or headset for that matter. for ten years
i've got lots of friends who think their king headset is "great"
then i get on their bikes, hit the front brake, and it sounds like the head tube is gonna break off
obviously some people don't care about that stuff.
i do

 Mike, here's what Cane Creek says on their website: "With the exception of the 110 series, Cane Creek warrants its headsets for a period of one year from the original date of purchase (headsets in the 110 family carry a warranty of 110 years)" so CK definitely has some competition in the "long-ass warranty" department.

tard, I have owned and installed more than 25 Chris King headsets in the past 12 years and not once have I heard them make any noise, no matter the amount of time they were on the bike. If you face your headtube, use the proper amount and kind of grease, and use proper Chris King headset cup press tools, one should have no issues with their CK headset.

  • 1 1
 They did used to carry a 10 year warranty on all parts.

 I am in agreement about the headsets. I work at a bike shop and guess what the number one creakiest headset is? Chris King. Try to warranty it and what do they say? Someone must have installed it wrong. If you have a warranty back it or don't have a warranty. Also had issues with their rear hubs coming loose. Warranty on that was useless too, customer ended up having to pay for parts that they admitted were defective.

 yep the warranty stands for fekk all when you actually get a problem with the head set , " it must of been installed incorrectly" is the common result

 I picked up a Stainless headset off of eBay and after facing my frame twice I still had issues with the top race interfering with the lower cup. I contacted CK about the issue and they said send it to us and we will look to see if it's out of spec. They sent it back with in a week with a new top race and lower bearing for no cost to me other then shipping one way. I even told them I accidently damaged the lower bearing while trying to remove it from my frame. Turns out, the set was fine all along and it was the frame steer tube that was to blame, they didn’t tell me that, I found out myself. CK stands behind their high priced pieces of crap products and they do it well in my experience with them. Every part on a bike that houses a bearing (minus pedals and suspension joints) CK makes, and I doubt that is because they make crap. I’ve never heard a King headset creek and I’ve used/installed many but what do I know.

 you guys who haven't heard your headset creak, are either
a) ignorant
b) deaf
C) full of shit
d) don't care anyways
e) super lucky

because
to be TOTALLY HONEST. almost every one of those headsets i've EVER seen. on ANY kind of bike. has creaked to some degree. maybe not when brand new. but soooner or later.
so once again seraph.
i think its pretty clear. you're not a very observant mechanic.
but most people aren't. and thats why most people don't hate chris king.
i do however know lots of people who support me completely on this.
smart people, engineers, people who hold serious positions in the bike industry. people you would respect. as its very clear i'm not one of those people. because of my sweet name, and my jackass behaviour. but its more fun this way.
  • 3 0
 It's pretty funny, you're so full of shit it's coming out your ears.

Most people don't hate Chris King because they make some awesome products that last the test of time and are of an extremely high quality. Not everyone shares your opinion, ever think of that? If you claim to know "smart people, engineers, people who hold serious positions in the bike industry," why don't you give me some names? Because I could sure as hell name a few names of people in the bike industry who swear by King headsets.
  • 2 1
 Just a thought but has to be said,if chris king had the design right in the first place why the change ? mr king blame's all other mfrs for an inferior design yet those designs worked without creaking,he also said that the internal headset was inferior but still produces them,mr king is here to make money same as all the others and if he was 100% behind his own products he wouldn't in all honesty change the design.

I have in all honesty nothing against king,what i am against is over hyped crap from people who have ridden one product from one mfr and claim it's the be all and end all and will defend it's honor no matter what,the design change shows that his o-ring design was flawed like it or lump it.

 Marquis, King still does not make an internal headset. They make the InSet, which is basically a low-stack regular headset, much like the Cane Creek XXCii Flush.
  • 2 1
 i guess the other thing i'm considering is that our riding generally abusive environment, and that you can't disagree upon, may lead to a higher failure rate.
and i'm very willing to admit that they may work fine in other places, under other situations. as i know other respectable people who feel like chris king headsets work fine enough

the point i've always tried to make is.
chris king headsets have a loose fit on the steerer tube meaning there is play, and can mean there is creaking, they try to take up this play with a rubber o-ring and a plastic shim. this can work, but is not incredibly likely to work forever. and in adverse conditions, such as abusive riding, will not hold up without creaking.
the play, that everyone must agree is there. does lead to a worn groove in the steerer tube, especially carbon ones. this definitely leads to a stress riser and a likely place for the steerer to break. you certainly can't say this is a good thing can you seraph?

can you just not agree that a headset with a compression ring clamp on the steerer tube is a more solid situation?
it would seem that chris king has, as he has finally made the upgrade
  • 1 3
 seraph, that was my respectful response to yours here's the other one you are clearly fucking stupid i'd love to see you try to dispute my respectful response. but you can't. because they're clear facts, that even chris king would no longer dispute. but we've proven you're stupid, because you're still standing up for a product that even chris king doesn't, so you probably will lets hear it

 I just sent my 2008 no threadset back to CK because of the looseness problem. It also put a fairly deep score in the steertube of my 2010 Float 36rc2. I have not heard back from their warranty department yet, hopefully they set me up with the new split ring at no cost.

 I've got a CK headset thats been on 3 bikes (two of which I replaced as I broke the frames crashing) and has seen 4 winters of very regular welsh riding. What have I done to it?

Nothing.

I don't think that makes it expensive at all when you spread the cost over the amount of time you'll have it for and how little you'll have to do to maintain it.

 Why do companies spend so much time developing the strongest bar or headset or stem? When do you ever snap your handlebars or your stem? Its pretty much 1 in a million chance thing to happen yet companies spend a lot of time researching it, putting money into it and charging stupidly expensive prices stronger products. Im not really relating to this article, but still. It annoys me.

 HOLY SH!T is right. FINALLY! I have been bitching about this for years. Every dh/fr bike I have ever owned and put a chris king on always felt like the fork was loose even when it was waaay past tight. Some were better than others, but in the end the problem was always there.

  • 2 0
 Oli in a way I agree with you but in another sense for all of us weight wenies we want lighter parts, which is why so much designing goes into it, chris king makes one of the lightest headsets, and bars will snap/bend if you hit a tree because of going down the hill gravity is still pulling you hence you keep going in the forward motion if you hit a tree.

 @OilScale: I snapped a handle bar numbers of years back and was an inch from dying. The handle bar snapped on a landing and my body buckled to the side of the broken bar, with my neck flying past the remaining super sharp shard on the broken bar on the bike. 1 more inch to one side and i would have ripped my neck apart and probably have been toast. This is me after the crash www.pinkbike.com/photo/110

So yeah, why make things stronger? So people dont die. One in a million may sound like good odds, until that one is you. Keep evolving and make things stronger so you are safer and can go bigger.

WTF are you talking about "FINALLY" they've BEEN a viable entity to DH bikes ever since they first offered their 10 year warrenty, let alone the Steel-Set, and the 1.5"! Rolleyes

 umm... the whole o-ring system and it's issues? It doesn't hold up to any real abuse
Maybe you never had them, but i did.

Now that they've implemented the split ring, that issue shouldn't exist anymore.
  • 2 2
 BTW their 1.5 headset is one of the heaviest and has the tallest stack height of all the 1.5" headsets I could find/would want to put on my bike. So tall that I couldn't run my boxxer with a devo kit, even with the drop crown. Got a Cane Creek double xc flush fit and cut the weight way down and dropped my bars a ton. Really, I don't need bearings that are held to 0.0005" of run out and need very specific press fits and $400 worth of shop tools to install properly to maintain warranty. I like the king stuff and all, but I think that there are other components that are better suited for DH and FR use.

 "isolated the clamping force of the split ring on the steerer tube and isolated that from the preload on the headset"

exactly how is this achieved if there still is one bolt that squeezes the whole thing together?
  • 2 0
 Easy, you have a stem to lock it into place. The center bolt is for initial setup only and is useless once the stem is installed. No what I mean?
