Chris King I2 Inset Headset

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.

InSet™ is the classic, unbeatable Chris King sealed bearing headset built into six configurations for contemporary bicycle headtube dimensions. As a low-stack style headset, the press-in cups and bearings are housed within the headtube allowing for an overall lower ride height. The InSet also features Chris King’s GripLock™ bearing cap design that uses a multi-piece bearing cap and a split ring for improved steerer tube interface.
  • Fits 1 1/8-1.5" tapered steerer tubes
  • Fits 44mm upper and 56mm lower headtubes
  • Includes aluminum cups, bearing cap, and stemcap
  • Stainless steel sealed bearings
  • Made in the USA
  • 10 year warranty
  • Weight: 166g

You get what you'd expect with Chris King components. Easy to install and super smooth bearings.
They may cost more than other headsets but they're worth every penny.

The KING
I put Chris King headsets on every bike I own. I see online people bashing the company but I still see quality in all his products. The warranty is a plus and the smoothness of the bearings is second to none. I will always recommend Chris King products to people because all you have to buy is one and your done!

Love my King Hubs, now have a Headset to match!
Bike's front end was creaking every time I even 'looked' at it. Was worried it was the fork creaking, but was able to pin it down to an older headset. Replaced with this King, and its gone away (as it should have). Picked up the King because I've been impressed with the hubs, and an old, old, old model I have that is still going strong on a friend's bike. This Inset has lived up to expectation so far. Haven't needed to adjust it yet, and is running smooth and quiet. No long term durability claims can be made yet, but based on the King hubs I have, it shouldn't be an issue.

PROS: Pretty!, Durable, Quality Construction

CONS: Pricey

will this fit the 2017 yeti sb5c?
A shopper on May 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I purchased the I2 for a 2016 Yeti SB5c and it's the right fit. Assume it will also fit the 2017, but worth cross checking Yeti site for headset spec and cross referencing a chris king site's fit guide.
Hi, is this the correct headset to fit a 2015 Kona Process 153 with the original RockShox Pike forks?

Keen to get the nasty ball & cage that's in there out!

Thanks
