Long awaited, but finally and actually here is Chris King's latest addition to their DropSet line of integrated headsets: the DropSet 5. This new DropSet is a 42/52mm 45x45º integrated headset designed specifically for the deeper ream of current model-year Specialized mountain bikes. What that means is that while the bearings have common dimensions, the top cap had to be modified to work with the placement of the bearings in the frame.
To the best of our knowledge, these headsets will only fit current model-year Specialized mountain bikes, but in any case, it's worth checking out this fitting guide to verify that this headset will fit your bike!
We've said it before, but why not just say it again: after decades of black wheels taking the top spot on the podium of desirability, it's just really cool to see more silver options that blend modern technology with classic looks. This wheelset blends classic looks with modern amenities.
