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 1/2 tapered steerer tubes
  • Includes aluminum cups, bearing cap, and stemcap
  • Stainless steel sealed bearings
  • 10 year warranty
  • Made in the USA
  • Weight: 188g

      Comments about Chris King I3 44/49 ZS Tapered Headset:

      I just built a new trail bike up from scratch and this was one part that I didn't give a second thought about. I have several other bikes with CK headsets and have never had a worry or problem. This headset is for a tapered headtube with regular 1.5 inch lower and integrated 1 1/8 inch upper (not very common). Once you experience the quality and performance, you'll be a believer too.

      It's a Chris King. It might seem expensive but it's not cause it's gonna outlast your frame or bike. Just buy it, install it and fuggedaboutit! Plus it's the coolest and nicest looking out there which makes it even more worth it.
