When Chris designed his first headset back in the mid 70's, his idea was simply to create a headset that would last more than a season or two. No one could have known that his efforts would revolutionize the bicycle industry the way they did. The Chris King headset has been considered a benchmark of quality for almost a quarter of a century. No other bicycle component can boast the longevity, performance and absolute reliability of the Chris King headset.
Each Chris King headset is manufactured from materials and components hand picked and evaluated precisely for use in their headsets. Each headset was developed with every attention to detail and each part of every headset is made by King. They even go so far as to make our own sealed, cartridge style bearings - a practice unheard of in the bike industry. Their bearings are made from surgical grade stainless steel and are fully serviceable. The constant contact seals are easily removed to allow for user servicing, yet provide an impervious barrier to the worst grit and grime of riding. This headset has a stack height of 31.4mm and weighs 126grams.
