Built to the same standards as all Chris Kings, the Inset Headsets offer fitment for more modern bikes.  Offering lots of choice for different headtubes and fork types, most bikes are now covered between the 7 different versions of Inset Headsets.

The Inset 8 is for fitment into 44mm top, 44mm bottom headtubes, and for 1 1/8" top, 1 1/4" bottom tapered forks.  Can also be used with 1 1/8" straight forks combined with 1.1/4"-1 1/8" Devolution baseplate. Check the diagram in the above tab for more information.

Chris King introduced the concept of sealed bearing headsets back in 1976, quickly gaining a cult following amongst professional riders that has seen King headsets ridden to mountain bike world titles in both endurance and gravity disciplines and cross the finish line under yellow at the Tour de France.

Made in the USA from 7075 aluminium, the Inset utilises high precision stainless steel cartridge bearings made to Chris King's proprietary specification, assembled in house and hand checked to ensure they meet the exacting standards that allow the headset to be covered by a comprehensive 10 year warranty.

The patented design allows King headsets to be user serviced with little more than a pen knife and some high quality grease. Whilst the modular construction and wide availability of replacement components ensure it will outlast any number of frame and fork combinations.

Specification:

Note: Threadless headsets require the use of specialist tools for fitment. Tweeks Cycles recommend the headset is fitted by a qualified mechanic using Chris King's headset press adaptor (available separately)
