    InSet 2 Headset

    Chris King headsets are often considered the gold standard for headsets in the cycling world. Building on a reputation for bombproof reliability, the Inset 2 Headset retains Chris King's storied quality and precision with a new design to meet the needs of frames that use a semi-integrated headset.

    The main difference between the Inset 2 and the well-known NoThreadset is that the Inset 2's bearings sit inside the head tube instead of being housed in cups on either side of it. The big bonus of the Inset 2 is that all those riders with frames requiring a semi-integrated headset can now get in on the Chris King train of awesomeness.

    The Inset 2 Headset also utilizes Chris King's new GripLock compression ring assembly in its top bearing for a safe and secure headset fit. The Inset 2 is compatible with tapered fork steerer tubes and can be adapted to pair with straight 1 1/8-inch steerer tubes by using a Devo baseplate (sold separately).
