We started making headsets in 1976 and have been refining them ever since. Our DropSet™ 5 is built to be dependable and sets the standard for quality. The integrated headset function delivers precision performance that is built on the same pedigree of Chris King headsets from the past 40 years.
Compatible with many Specialized mountain bike frames, see headtube specifications here. Not compatible with the 21'-22' Stumpjumper EVO.
