Chris King I5 Inset Headset

Chris King I5 49 Mixed Tapered 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 mixed style headset, the top press-in cup and bearings are housed within the headtube allowing for an overall lower ride height, while the lower bearing retains a traditional, external style. 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 49mm straight headtubes
  • Top internal bearing and cup, bottom external bearing and cup
  • Gold, Mango, Pewter and Pink are special order colors and subject to Chris King's availability
  • Includes aluminum cups, bearing cap, and stemcap
  • Stainless steel sealed bearings
  • 10 year warranty
  • Made in the USA

For help with installation and troubleshooting, Chris King has lots of info available here.
