Over 30 years ago, Chris King designed the first sealed bearing headset. Since then, King Precision Components has earned its current reputation for producing top-quality products that are not only strong, but beautiful as well.
This headset is equipped with a pair of King's proprietary angular contact stainless steel bearings - designed to last for years. In fact, with proper maintenance, this headset may outlast you. King Components does all their precision manufacturing in-house: bearings, cups, anodizing, and laser-etching. And they back all their headsets with an impressive 10-year warranty.
This headset is beautifully finished with a glossy anodization. Chris King now finishes their headsets in the "Sotto Voce logo", a subtle look which leaves the laser etched Chris King logo ghosted within the anodization . The classic styled Chris King logo is still available in the black series. Here is an example featuring the classic logo next to the ghosted Sotto Voce logo:
Headsets includes a nylon washer for unfaced stems, a steel starnut for metal steerer tubes, and installation instructions. Please note that for this headset to function properly, your headtube and fork crown must be professionally reamed and faced.
