A Chris King Cross Rear wheel vs Shimano Deore Rear is not exactly fair due to they are completely different wheels. The setup I have is a Chris King Coss High Flange Rear Hub with DT swiss 465 rim and a Shimano Deore Rear hub with a Mavic A319 rim. Forgot to weight them before putting the cassettes and Michelin KRYLION CARBON tries on. The Chris King is 1540 g and the Deore is 1860 g.
Reality is the use that Chris King can take for 10 years is what the Deore would take for 1 year. The price difference is about 5 times as much initially. Expect if you put in the hard miles the Chris King becomes the lower cost option.
