Chris King understands what makes wheels fast. The keys are fast bearings, power transfer, and a rim that absorbs road chatter and holds its line. When King began working with FusionFiber®, the revolutionary thermoplastic carbon fiber in their rims, its ability to eat road noise and stay planted suggested it could be part of a super high-performance wheel build. King make the ARD44 because they think it’s the best a road wheel can be, and that’s the idea, the kind of product, that makes them want to ride further, longer and faster.

Why You Want It

The ARD44 is designed for serious cyclists who want all-out speed on flats, climbs and through corners. It’s an aero wheel that shines across a wide range of terrain, from smooth pavement to rough gravel roads. Built to surpass even the most rigorous industry standards, the ARD44 Wheelset is built around King’s industry-leading R45D hub and an aero-profiled, 44mm deep FusionFiber® rim. The combination delivers unparalleled power transfer, speed, and stability.  

King’s R45D hub serves as the perfect core for this wheelset, with their superior, house-made bearings, perfectly matched races, and single-piece axles. The R45D’s flanges are optimized for lateral stiffness and durability. The final piece is Chris King's unparalleled RingDrive™ system, which maximizes engagement throughout the pedal stroke by providing 45 points of simultaneous engagement. King’s reputation throughout the industry is built on bearings that wear in, not out coupled to RingDrive’s™ high engagement super-efficient core.  

The ARD44’s rim produces a stable, responsive and nimble ride while reducing bodily fatigue and strain on the rider, due to the superior damping attributes of FusionFiber’s® thermoplastic technology. It effectively minimizes unnecessary road feedback and vibrations, resulting in better traction and a smooth, comfortable ride that will keep riders fresher, longer, and make the next day’s ride easier too.
