User serviceable and likely to outlast a few frames.

Chris King designed the first sealed bearing headset in 1976. Thirty-four years later, the King headset remains a benchmark for quality. No other bicycle component can claim the precision, performance and absolute reliability of a Chris King headset.

At Chris King Precision Components, we manufacture each headset in our own facility to exacting standards, using quality-at-the-source methods to minimize waste. Even the sealed, cartridge style bearings are made in-house and are hand-checked.

We believe this component so well represents us that we offer a 10-year warranty on all models.

Our standard headsets are available in 4 different models, 4 sizes and 9 colors. We make a stainless steel headset and 3 absolutely gorgeous titanium models. You’ find our headsets are ideal for every type of bicycle and all styles of riding.
