Chris King is best known for colorful, anondized hubsets and long-lasting headsets, but the company also has the Cielo brand of bikes, including a steel cyclocross model. This year, former Danish National Champion and pro racer Joachim Parbo will be racing the Cielo. “We’re pretty stoked,” said Kyle from Chris King. “He’s going to race this all year on our steel ’cross bike.”

He continued, “Parbo is going to race this in Europe and as he’s traveling throughout the States he’s going to do outreach to different places about cycling and stuff. So it works on a couple different levels. He’s going to run a special version with all turquoise parts, and stuff from Enve, Challenge and Microshift and a couple of other things.”
