The King front disc hub from German manufacturer Tune is all at once lightweight, strong, and attractive. After several years of production, the King remains one of the lightest and most durable front hub options, with a price that is equally competitive. In 2010, Tune updated this design to allow conversion between quick release and 15 mm thru axle versions. As a result, the hubs are also about 20 grams lighter with a larger diameter axle for improved front end stiffness. The King is available in several anodized colors, with Tune's logo laser etched on the hub shell. The white hubs are given a durable powdercoat.
Currently, Tune is beginning to release low spoke count versions of their King disc hubs in anticipation of future road disc, and low spoke count MTB systems.
