Chris King Precision Components was one of the first bicycle component manufacturers to offer a threadless headset. The modular design of the headset Chris developed in 1976 served as a platform for him to transform the concept of threadless into one of the most iconic pieces in the cycling universe. The Chris King NoThreadSet™ is simple yet without limitation. It is equally appropriate on road or mountain bikes. It has been ridden to mountain bike world titles in both endurance and gravity disciplines and has crossed the finish line under yellow at the Tour de France.
The NoThreadSet™ features aluminium cups, bearing cap, and stemcap built around our renowned stainless steel sealed bearings. Each NoThreadSet™ includes a stainless steel baseplate and our custom starnut with bolt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alec1986 Don't scrimp, it'll pay for itself with long service.
I second the first reviewers comment, bought one of these in 2003 and it's still silky smooth! Seen many many miles of varied use.
Serviced maybe twice during this time, it's simply a case of removing the split ring & seal, injecting some fresh grease into the bearings to push out the old stuff and re-assembling - easy.
On another note, always get the headset cups professionally pressed into a frame, do not be tempted to use the 'block of wood' technique, I have seen many instances of premature bearing wear (albeit on cheaper headsets) due to improperly seated cups.

Had this king in pewter for nearly 10 years. Amasing. Never serviced. Used for trials and xc. My bros use the slightly cheaper hope and regret their 80quid purchase. 30 more go king
