InSet™ is the latest addition to the Chris King® NoThreadSet™ family. InSet™ is a low-stack threadless headset designed for use with contemporary frames featuring what would traditionally be called "oversized" headtubes. As times have changed, so have the designs of many of our favourite bicycles. These new large headtubes allow frame manufacturers greater surface area on which to attach top tubes and down tubes with the overall result being improved frame strength and rigidity. We pride ourselves on adapting Chris' forward-thinking original modular designs into ever-evolving configurations to meet most new bicycle designs. The Chris King® InSet™ now brings King's legendary bearing quality and time-tested durability to even more bicycle models.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous great headset
Nothing else to say than superb...
I choosed the black one and it perfectly fits my new Yeti 575 with tapered fork steerer. As I bought in 94 the first NothreadSet in silver for my GT 'RTS Team'; and as it's still working smoothly despite an intense but non regular use, I guess this one should last at least as long!
Expensive but strong and durable, every one agrees...
But still a bit heavy, quality weight...
