Chris King I3 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 1/2 tapered steerer tubes
  • Fits 44mm upper and 49mm lower tapered headtubes
  • Gold, Mango, Pewter and Pink colorways are special order and subject to Chris King availability
  • Includes aluminum cups, bearing cap, and stemcap
  • Stainless steel sealed bearings
  • 10 year warranty
  • Made in the USA
  • Weight: 188g

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.
