This Chris King thread-less headset features Chris King's GripLock bearing cap that utilizes a split ring design that optimizes the steerer tube interface.

InSet Model 4 with GripLock bearing cap is intended for 1 1-8 steerer dual crown forks, fits bikes from a number of manufacturers and is for long travel applications. As long as your bike doesn't require an integrated headset this Inset headset will perform beautifully on your bike.

This Chris King Inset headset is a low-stack thread-less headset. Like other Chris King headsets, it features user-serviceable stainless steel bearings. Chris Kings bearings are legendary because their design gives you years of trouble free performance with only routine maintenance.
