With their Inset line of headsets, Chris King demonstrates their commitment to the contantly evolving landscape of bicycle standards. But, for the record, the Inset is not an integrated headset; Chris King said he would never make an integrated headset, and he's still saying it. InSet, in the most general of terms, is the same heirloom-quality King headset, now available in many different varieties to fit just about any modern frameset. Whether you have a staight or tapered steerer, straight or tapered headtube, external or internal cups (confused yet?), there is most likely an Inset available for you.
Absolutely the finest and most expertly crafted headset available, InSet uses King's in-house manufactured and user-serviceable stainless steel sealed bearings. All Chris King headsets are manufactured with pride in Portland, Oregon and backed with confidence by a ten year warranty.
Each headset's SHIS code is listed in the specs table; if you need help deciding which particular headset you need, feel free to give us a call.
Proper frame preparation and installation are required to ensure the longevity of your Chris King headset. We highly recommend that these services be performed by a professional mechanic.
