CHRIS KING Headset DropSet 5 GripLock Ceramic Tapered SHIS IS42 / 28.6 | IS52 / 40 1 1/8 "-1 1/2"
For many years, CHRIS KING tax rates have been the reference product in tax rate construction. The legendary durability of the multi-sealed high-end industrial bearings, as well as the classic design, have shaped the appearance of the products of the manufacturer from the USA for years. As is typical for Chris King, the precisely milled and anodized surfaces are of extremely high quality.
The newly developed GripLock system improves the steerer tube clamping in order to counteract the increased forces that occur with long-stroke forks. The multi-part end cap is equipped with a slotted conical ring, which enables an even easier connection between the steerer tube and the head tube.
As with all CHRIS KING components, the heart of the headset is also in the bearings. These are produced directly at CHRIS KING and, thanks to a special manufacturing process, contain more balls than the competition, which results in a more stable system overall. Each bearing is checked by hand for any quality defects before installation and, if necessary, sorted out. The ceramic bearings installed here are the highest level of evolution. Their smooth running is phenomenal and their durability is unmatched. They also save a bit of weight.
Chris King has confidence in his products. They show this by giving a lifetime guarantee on their tax rates. All you have to do is register them on their website after purchasing them.
