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.
  • Fits 1 1/8” threadless steerer tubes

  • Stainless steel sealed bearings
  • Stainless steel baseplate and Chris King custom starnut with bolt

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.

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.

    Best bike component company out there. Everything they sell is top notch. I have never had an issue with anything I have bought with the name Chris King. I installed a CK Headset because I know it will be durable, I know it will give me years of reliable service w/o a single complaint. How do I know this? B/c I have 3 bikes now with CK, 1 being a 94 GT Zaskar. It is as smooth today as the day it was installed.

      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.

        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.
