Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality headset for the price Got this with some money off for my wife's bike and will only buy something with sealed cartridge bearings. Happy with the quality of the part, was fun trying to install it mind the tolerances are very tight but that means it's been made to more accurate control. so far all seems good and the race is a decent solid one not like the hope race which has a rubber O'ring around it allowing the ali' to split. Anodizing seems durable too 15 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheap and cheerful. Cannot fault the FSA Orbit headsets in any way. They are made from quality materials and the bearings run smooth in all weather conditions with no hassle. Whenever I'm on a tight budget and am in need of a new headset, this is the first place that I would look and I strongly recommend it. It comes complete with sealed cartridge bearings. upper and lower cups, crown piece, top cap, top race clip and a star-fangled nut. Used Orbits on my Cotic and Intense 5.5 and had no issues. 21 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job well Have used 3 of these on 3 different bikes, find them always well made and always hold up well with no issues. Great value for money. 02 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by smmoooothh So smooth! Feels good quality with a solid metal build, feels brilliant when riding, and also looks great with the FSA decals. Looks a lot better than the pictures show. 12 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ever lasting headset with quality bearings Another great headset from FSA. Great quality bearings and fine finish at this price is hard to match. 20 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Super Steuersatz mit leichten Schwächen. Habe den Steuersatz jetzt schone eine ganze Weile verbaut. Er sieht top aus und macht gute Arbeit. Allerdings hat er leichtes Spiel, was man dann doch auf ruppigen Trails spührt. Aber für diesen Preis kann man da nicht viel meckern. 29 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super smooth Just fitted this to my new build. The red finish looks awesome. Feels super smooth and should be pretty easy to service with the cartridge bearings. 06 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by jeu de direction de qualité J'ai été agréablement surpris par la qualité de fabrication de ce jeu de direction. De plus, il semble indestructible. Je l'ai monté facilement sur mon vtt (attention toutefois à la hauteur des cuvettes). En XC, il est largement dimensionné, de plus il donne un look classe à mon vieux vtt, pour un prix correct (merci Chain Reaction). 01 August 2013

Answer: 
This headset will not be suitable for a 06 Scott Scale.

The Scale frame requires a semi integrated headset such as the item below.

Answer: 
No it won't. You need either an Internal or Integrated headset. These are standard, E.g, they fit on the outside of the frame, whereas your frame requires bearings that are inside the frame.

Answer: 
As we are not a Whyte dealer it is advised to measure the internal diameter of the frame headtube; however research shows that the 2012, 2013 and 2014 models use a Integral 44mm Internal Diameter headset.

The suggested model below is a good option.

Answer: 
Not being a Norco dealer I am unable to confirm which headset standard you need. This headset is for a 34mm internal diameter headtube (conventional style) where the bearings rest in cups on the outside of the headtube. If you have a 41mm headtube you need a Cane Creek Integrated system, a 41.8mm headtube is a Campagnolo Integrated system, and 44mm is a Semi-Integrated/ Zero-Stack system.

Answer: 
Not being a Genesis dealer I have no way to confirm, but their Equilibrium 10 appears to be running a standard 34mm headtube, so any conventional headset should be fine, yes.

Answer: 
While designed as an MTB headset this will work fine with any conventional 34mm headtube. The 2013 Chrono TT ran a 44mm headtube so will require a zero-stack/ semi-integrated headset such as those below.

MTB. If you have a 1 1/8 size steerer tube with the bearings on the outside of the frame, then yes. If the steerer is 1.5" and you have internal bearings, then no.
