Chris King NoThreadset Tapered Headset

User serviceable and likely to outlast a few frames. Chris King designed the first sealed bearing headset in 1976. Thirty-four years later, the King headset remains a benchmark for quality. No other bicycle component can claim the precision, performance and absolute reliability of a Chris King headset.

At Chris King Precision Components, we manufacture each headset in our own facility to exacting standards, using quality-at-the-source methods to minimize waste. Even the sealed, cartridge style bearings are made in-house and are hand-checked.

Chris King sealed bearing headsets now feature the Sotto Voce logo mark in all colours. We believe this subtle logo style better complements a quality bicycle. For those who desire the classic King style, black headsets are available with either a Bright Silver King logo or Sotto Voce style King logo.

Sotto Voce (sot-toh voh-che) is an Italian term used in music to denote a dramatic lowering of the tone. It literally means “under voice" but can be translated as “soft voice". Tapered Steerers & Headtubes. To accommodate today's newest frames and forks we offer a complete NoThreadSet featuring a 1 1-8" upper cup and a 1.5" lower cup and baseplate.

Our devolution™ headset solves one tough problem. Or is it two? How to use your new frame with your old fork? What about using your old frame with a new fork ? Upgrades and crash replacement can lead to all sorts of combination and in today’s electronic marketplace, you can buy all sorts of stuff from all sorts of places. Want to do something out of the ordinary? Devolution™ can make it happen.

For tapered 1-1/8" to 1.5" steerer tubes but can be used with 1-1/8" steerer tubes by purchasing a Devolution 1.5 to 1-1/8" Baseplate/crown race.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Performer... But can be bought for less than £100 elsewhere. Utterly bomb proof, and has outlasted both my Hope headsets. 03 April 2014
