FSA Orbit C-40 Tapered Integrated Headset

Tapered headsets are a combination of the other styles. Usually a tapered steerer tube will have a 1.1/8" or 1.5" lower diameter, and a 1.1/8" upper diameter. The headsets for these frames & forks can be any combination of traditional, internal, or integrated headsets. It is very important to accurately measure the inner diameter of the headtube top and bottom to narrow down the headset model needed. In some cases, Tapered headtubes can be used with a straight 1.1/8" steerer tube if a reducing headset race is available for that headset.

FSA Orbit Headset Specification:

  • Steerer Tube OD: 1.1/8" to 1.5" tapered
  • Upper head tube ID: 42mm
  • Lower head tube ID: 52mm
  • Fork crown seat OD: 39.8mm
  • Stack height: 8.9mm
  • Weight: 83.4g

This headset runs a 51.8mm diameter lower bearing, in a 36x45 degree size.
I am not aware of any 36x36 51.8mm bearings in our stock. Feel free to contact our Tech team with details of your frame and existing headset and they will be able to help you further. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/...
