FAT KINGkong Hubs

For Fatbikes

Based on longtime experiences with our KINGkong and KONG hub combination, we have developed an offset hub set for Fatbikes.With its 130 g the FAT KINGkong is ploughing a lonely Fatbike-furrow. The hub will be available as version quickrelease (135 mm width) and 15mm thru-axle skewer alike (142 mm width). An additional FAT KINGkong for the Rock Shox Bluto suspension fork (150mm width) will be available from December 2014. Thanks to the same flange distance of the offset hubs, both wheels can be mounted symmetrical. The consequence are highest stiffness and durability. The hub body has been stiffened in favor of a constant load spreading onto the spokes. Furthermore the flanges are sloped towards the spokes and therefore towards the direction of load. The result of all the measures is a stable, durable and ultralight product, simply made in Buggingen/Germany.



For our hubs we only use standard bearings adjusted for our necessities. This means our bearings have the same width and diameter measurements as standard high precision deep groove ball bearings. Whereas the insides are especially tuned for us. For example, we use a special bearing grease whereby the friction can be reduced, and the lifespan extended. The inside bearing of the freewheel body creates a specialty. The characteristics were individually adapted for the high load experienced by the bearing. To ensure best performance we also adjusted the bearing play exactly for our hubs. Advantage: Standard bearings can be used temporarily, if tune TUNE bearings are not available.
