Why We Make This
Contemporary bicycle frame designs are incorporating larger diameter headtubes and tapered-steerer forks to improve the bike’s front end stiffness, and as a result handling accuracy. This move has made particular sense for off-road bikes. We evolved the form and function of our legendary NoThreadset to address the variety of tapered steerers and headtubes on the market today.
Why You Want It
Every Chris King headset is built with our heat-treated bearings, and surgical-grade steel races machined simultaneously to ensure they are perfectly matched. As Chris King bearing tracks age and burnish, they actually get smoother, and all headsets are fully serviceable for years upon years of demanding riding.
The Chris King InSet™ 2 delivers legendary Chris King performance in a precision, low-stack, tapered 44mm/56mm headset. The InSet™ 2 is equipped with our legendary in-house built bearings and is designed to give riders the option of a low stack height and effortless hassle-free performance.
