Tech Specs

  • Stack measurements include top cover or crown race.
  • Note that some manufacturers list cup only to make them appear shorter than they are.
  • Angle headsets are the mid stack height and will vary by a mm or so depending on angle.
  • Our headsets are highly sealed with custom moulded wiper seal, this adds approximately 2mm over unsealed headsets but we feel this is essential to long service life.

    Basically its a hope headset without the price tag. Quality is easily as good, bearings are quality & filled with grease. The only bad point was someone forgot to cut the thread in the star angled nut!

    Cheap, really well made and easy to install with the split crown race. Love the seal on the lower to protect from water.

    These are very good, the sealing is great and the tolerances spot on. These smoke headsets at much higher prices and some others should be ashamed at what they are asking for their headsets. The gusset headset I had before cost more and died early and the non stainless topcap bolt started rusting instantly. Keep the chips and the parts flying out those cnc machines!
