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, they manufacture each headset in their 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.

Whether you are on the road or in the dirt, Chris King’s classic NoThreadSet is an iconic addition to your bike. The NoThreadSet has seen glory underneath world cup XC racers, gravity riders, and has even ridden into Paris under the Yellow Jersey.

    Comments about Chris King 1-1/8 Nothreadset Bold Headst:

    You can cut your own hair so why pay for a haircut? Sometimes it's nice to treat yourself and sometimes you find just the right bike that deserves a nice part or two. I am completely happy with Cane Creek and feel that the Forty series has a nice quality to it, it will just never be a Chris King.

      The Chris King headset, which I installed in my first mountain bike build, has proven itself through years of hard riding in harsh conditions, including multiple crashes (even being hit by an SUV), to be an invaluable investment, providing consistent performance year after year. It is truly money well spent when included in the parts list of any high quality bike build.

      Comments about Chris King 1-1/8 Nothreadset Bold Headst:

      Installed on my S-Works FSR frame in 2002. After a decade the cups are still flawless and the bearings are still perfect. I've never had such a great headset ever. Bar none I can not think of a better brand out there. Granted CK headsets are quite pricy but well worth it in the long run.

      A little disappointed

      Comments about Chris King 1-1/8 Nothreadset Bold Headst:

      I purchased this headset after my FSA headset bearings wore out. I bought it after being told how when you buy any Chris King product you will never have to replace it again. I ride a 29" bike and after about a year I have started to notice that the headset loosens occasionally. When it starts to creak and pop around, I take it apart, clean it and tighten, it works great for a week then starts again. Chris King has indiated that it is definetely not the headset, althought I have talked to 2 of my friends who have the identical headset on a 29 inch bike and have had similar results. Not totally dispointed but probably not worth spending over $100 more than I spent on the FSA headset that never loosened or creaked.

      So smooth, super bling. It's worth shelling out for a quality component like this because it lasts, and is the smoothest headset out there. Period.

      I have the same purple headset I bought in 199X - It was on a purple Nishiki Alien...I bought the threadless adapter... and it is now on its 5th bicycle. Now it rides on the single speed 29er. I have never even added lube.... All cycling products should be build this well..

      Spend the cash - you get what you pay...

      Comments about Chris King 1-1/8 Nothreadset Bold Headst:

      After replacing pretty much everything else on my bike I gave in to my friend's suggestion and went for a Chris King headset. I've only had it a month but it does FEEL excellent. That said, all of my other headsets were fine. But if this Chris King is as solid and durable as people say, I'll be happy.
