Why We Like The NoThreadset Headset

Chris King, manufacturer of some of the best headsets in the world, decided to upgrade its NoThreadset 1-1/8” Headset with GripLock to put a little extra magic in your cockpit. The new GripLock replaces the older version’s one-piece bearing cap with a new compression design. The new split ring design provides a more secure and safer interface (especially on carbon fiber steerer tubes) by increasing the surface area against the steerer. The NoThreadset still features the same sealed cartridge bearings that are fully serviceable and made (in-house) from surgical grade stainless steel. Chris King’s constant contact seals offer solid protection against girt and grime and are easy to remove for maintenance. The NoThreadset 1-1/8” with GripLock fits frames with a 1-1/8” (34mm ID) straight head tube and forks with a 1-1/8” straight steerer tubes.

HEADSET IS GREAT, but buyer beware!

Chris King is the gold standard, set it and forget it. However, I ordered the ?sotto voce red? headset because the red/red matches my bike, backcountry sent a red headset with white lettering. I know this is a very minor issue, but if I?m spending 150+ dollars on a headset I?d like it to be the colors that were advertised. Don?t want to deal with returning it so I?ll just install it or sell it. Lesson learned, go to your local bike shop instead of ordering online.
