Anybody recall when king started doing hubs? My memory says late 90s but I'm basically not sure.

The website claims they started work on new products in 1993. I've got a Bontrager set of rebadged kings which is about 1997. So i'd have thought late 95 at the earliest :)

Suspension front hub was available for the 95 model year (ie late 94) and rear was definitely available in 97 but not sure when it actually was released.

Additional: Early front hubs only have King on them, which was changed to Chris King when the rears were released, so matching sets of hubs is only a period fitment for latter 90s bikes (97ish) onwards.
