Applying the legendary form and function of their world renowned range of headsets Chris King have created the InSet3 Tapered Headset which is a low-stack, threadless headset designed for use with contemporary frames featuring what would traditionally be called "oversized" headtubes. Comprising a 44mm Inset upper cup, standard 1.5" external baseplate and a 49.6mm lower external cup it is designed for use with 1.5" Tapered steerer tube forks. It also features a bearing cap design called GripLock™, a multi-piece bearing cap that utilises a split ring that improves steerer tube interface. Like other Chris King headsets, it employs user-serviceable stainless steel bearings to give you years of trouble free performance with only routine maintenance.

This i3 NoThreadSet GripLock headset fits bikes from a number of manufacturers. As long as your bike doesn’t require an integrated headset and matches the precise specifications set out below this Inset™ headset will perform beautifully on your bike. However, it is absolutely essential that proper reaming and facing of your bike’s head tube be performed by a qualified mechanic during installation of this Inset™ headset.

Please be aware that modifying a frame to make the Inset™ fit is not a proper method of installation. The proper installation of this headset is so important that you are encouraged to choose another headset if you are not able to have this Inset™ headset properly installed. We at PUSHYS highly recommend that you carefully check your bike's specifications before ordering this headset and contact us or your bike manufacturer, if necessary, for any clarification required. Once properly installed, this Chris King® Inset™ headset will give you years of world class performance.
