Chris King's headsets have been regarded as the ultimate option for decades now, and the InSet 2 Headset makes sure this reputation is one that will carry on as industry standards continue to progress. Designed specifically for 44 mm / 56 mm tapered headtubes and 1 1/8” - 1.5” steerer tubes , the Inset 2 is made in the USA from surgical-grade stainless steel, and is user serviceable, featuring GripLock™ technology that keeps the headset from coming out of adjustment on rough terrain or long rides. King Components manufactures each headset in their own facility in Portland, Oregon 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. Due to the constant contact, the seal is practically impervious to dirt and grime.
Available in multiple colors. Claimed weight is 150 g. Chris King offers a lifetime warranty on all models (10 year warranty if purchased before January 1, 2019).
