The legend that is Chris King will be heading to this weekend’s Bespoked, the UK’s only handbuilt bicycle show, where he will be showcasing his latest products, presenting a custom trophy to his favourite builds and doing a Q&A session.
Chris King will be on the Saddleback stand, the UK distributor for the brand.
“Having Chris King and Cielo as a part of our portfolio is a great fit and we are honoured to have them,” says UK brand manager Ashley Matthews.
“We want everyone to get to know the people behind these incredible brands and Bespoked is an ideal opportunity to do so. We are looking forward to talking product in more detail at the show.”
Chris King recently introduced three new matte colours - Matte Emerald, Matte Jet and Matte Slate - to the hub range, joining the existing polished colour options.
As well as showing off his latest hubs, Chris King will also be exhibiting his line of Cielo frames with design manager Jay Sycip on hand to talk through the key details. From the Cielo range will be the Road Racer and Cross Racer, and of course they’ll be kitted out with the latest components from Chris King and Saddleback’s other high-end brand, Enve
Aside from the latest products, Chris King will be taking part in a Q&A session on manufacturing on Sunday at 1pm. It promises to be an interesting talk.
