The last headset you may ever buy.

Your fancy new carbon frame has a massive headtube to quell chatter so you better make sure you installed a Chris King Inset 7 Headset to ensure your steering is as smooth as your freshly-shaved legs.

  • Low-stack height minimizes weight and provides a clean look
  • Completely serviceable angular contact bearings means the Inset 7 will outlive your next three carbon frames
  • Stainless steel sealed bearings keep grime and dirt out, while providing buttery-smooth operation
  • Upper cup:44mm InSet; Lower cup:44mm External
  • Compatible with tapered 1-1/8in to 1.5 inch steerer tubes

The Best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

CK headsets are where it's at. Over the years I've strayed from them, most recently was for a Cane Creek 110 (super awesome by the way, same price range too) but I keep coming back to CK. It may have to do with all the color options they offer... Anyhow, it sure is a ton of coin to drop on a headset, but they work flawlessly.

Tech notes: I almost went with the Inset 1 since my current fork is a non-tapered 1 1/8, but then I got to thinking, most forks these days are going the tapered route. I plan on upgrading in the future. Keep that in mind when ordering.

I decided to future proof this build by getting the Inset 7 so I could run 1.5's in the future. Hopefully not that distant of a future!

Will this model fit a Specialized Epic...

Will this model fit a Specialized Epic Comp Carbon 2013? Don't want to buy unless certain of fit.

Doesn't look like it. Specialized says on their website that the headset on the Epic Comp Carbon is 1-1/2", which is only 38mm. So I think this one would be too small. Keep in mind though, there's an unconditional return policy so you could order it and try it out, and then it if doesn't work just send it back. No harm done.
