Chris King Precision Components was one of the first bicycle component manufacturers to offer a threadless headset.

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.

I have the more ostentatious original (in black) with and I've had it 4+ years now its been transplanted from an Orange MsIsle to my Cotic Soul and still going strong its been stripped and cleaned a few times, but it really doesn't matter how much mud you put it through it remains smooth and solid. You just can't beat CK for their quality nobody makes a better headset full stop.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous It's the old King
I'm giving a mixed review. I've got a King on a roadbike and it'll last eternally there I'm sure, so 5 stars for that. However I'm not too happy I put one on my trail/am bike because I love rock gardens. The o-ring cap doesn't hold in this use which is not surprising, but come on, 6 months and the King starts dying, any headset can do the same and many do better without battering the steer tube of your fork. I'll go for some dh-rated stuff the next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Works a treat - if you have a really nice bike fit one now!!
I built up a Cove Handjob frame a few years ago, and fitted a WTB Greaseguard headset. Replaced it after 6 months. Fitted a WTB cartridge bearing headset. Replaced the bearings after 6 months. Got fed up with replacing the bearings, so when it came to a fork upgrade I fitted a CK headset. Despite frequent abuse in the mud of northern england & wales it still works. OK, some people comment that it is too "bling", but for a bike in the UK true fit & forget components are what everyone should be looking to fit.
I said it at the top, if you have a nice bike then this headset should be the one you fit, forget new headsets every year & risking damage to your head tube. Fit the CK.

Over the past 20 years I have had that many headsets. All of them rubbish but not all cheap. None have lasted more than 18 months in NW English weather. The Chris King headset is a class apart. 3 years on and three pretty miserable winters and it runs as smooth as the day it was installed. Zero maintenance. If I had known then what I now know I would have got the Chris King headset in the first place and saved a load of money!
