Chris King 1 1/8" NoThreadSet Sotto Voce

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.

Best money can buy
Bought this headset after my 10 year old Ritchey finally gave up the ghost. I like the look of external headsets on sleek steel frames and this one looks awesome! You can feel the quality just by holding it and it installed quite easily with my home made headset press. Super smooth and no regrets!

Expensive but Hassle free
A really nice bit of gear, set and forget.

Lasts and lasts worth transferring between bikes.

Baseplates are available separately so you can have two forks for your bike and 'hot swap' them in 15 mins, this is great.

Expensive but after a few years and a few bikes you get your moneys worth.

PROS: Spare Baseplates Avail, Works flawlessly, Set and Forget, Looks

CONS: Expensive

1 of the best
I had to stay with king for head sets. I broke 3 crank brothers I weigh 155 2 were on my xc 1 was on am. I think kings are 110g when the crank bros was 68g. I got to pick color also with the king and if you have an older frame and head set gets loose buy a king steel set 1" deep cups wiggle is gone
