    Details

    Built for your frame.

    Chris King’s InSet Headset series is designed for very specific applications, which is why you’ll find numbers 1 through 8 attached to each one. The InSet 7 seen here includes a 44mm internal, zero stack upper cup paired with a 44mm external lower cup. This means that if you have a straight, 44mm head tube, and a fork with a 1.5 to 1.125in tapered steerer tube, this is the Chris King product for you.

    Each King headset is warranted for ten years, spins on King’s house-made, ultra-smooth bearings, and comes in a variety of color options. It’s the perfect finishing touch for your bike, no matter what kind of bike it is.

    • Designed for 44mm head tubes with tapered forks
    • Spins on King’s proprietary bearings
    • Includes headset cups, bearings, crown race, griplock, and top cap
    • Item #CKG0037

    It will Outlast Your Frame

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Installation was easy on the 44mm headtube of my hardtail. After installing and an easy adjustment it has not required any other service or maintenance. King headsets are built to last a long time and will outlast your frame. The bonus is that you can put it on your next bike, the one after that, and the one after that and it will still work like the day you purchased it.

    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.

    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.
