Used this on a new frame build. The frame required a zero stack, tapered headset (this and a spacer worked for a non-tapered fork).
The bearings are sealed and very smooth. The bearing race itself is keyed with the headset to make it relatively idiot proof on installation.
These are press fit headsets (upper and lower) so you will need some way to press them into the frame. Once in and fully assembled, the bearings were very smooth and solid with little/no play in the bearings.

Better than stock

Took some mixing and matching to get this back in place of the stock piece and the lower bearing isn't sealed

      Great headset, especially for the price on Jenson. Works as it should, nice and smooth. Watch out for the crown race install, as the blue seal is easy to damage. Not as blingy as the 110 series or a Chris King, but it's also half the price.

                          Will this work with a 2012 trek fuel ex 8? The stock forks are Fox 32 Float RL, Trek DRCV and stock headset is a FSA NO.57E, E2, with ACB sealed bearings

                            I have s 2012 Fuel EX7 and I ordered this headset. I believe the crown race is wrong though. The 40 is for a tapered steerer tube and the bike has a 1 1/8 steerer tube. Need the 30 crown race instead. I sent an email to CC to see what they say. Hopefully they will just send me a new 30 race.

                            A:

                            Per FSA's website, the No. 57 is a zero stack headset for a tapered headtube
                            (50mm/62mm OD). The top bearing set is for a 1 1/8" steering tube with the
                            bottom with a 1.5" angular contact bearing set. The No. 57E headset is not
                            explicitly listed, but we can assume that it has similar characteristics to
                            the No. 57.
                            Additionally, the No. 57 is indicated (on websites that sell FSA No. 57)
                            that this is for a headtube with 44mm ID upper and 56 mm ID lower (tapered
                            50mm/62mm OD).
                            If all that logic wasn't enough, Cane Creek has a headset finder where you
                            can type in your bike make, model, and year to find the size you need. For a
                            2012, Trek, Fuel EX-8 you need a ZS44/28.6 stem clamp diameter for the top
                            and a ZS56/40 crown race diameter. These are the dimensions for the Cane
                            Creek 40 ZS44/56 tapered headset. So yes, this will work on your bike.
