Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 41 reviewers.
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
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible Had this headset for a while on my v10, but after a few rides it started making noises. I stuck with it for a while, but it got worse and worse. Now on a holiday in the alps and it's making horrendous noises! Took it apart, it all seemed ok so put it back together and it quietened down for a run or two, but soon started making the noises again! Going back to a pig dh pro because that lasted me years no issues! 03 July 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not a 97g headset Looks solid but disappointed with the weight - no where near the 97g claimed. This headset is closer to 120g. 16 November 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by not so green anymore i've had a few of these on different bikes and they have all worked great i'm still using one now and can't fault its working but i got the green ano and sadly it has fadded quite a lot in a short amount of time. 28 September 2012

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.

No it won't, these bearings are standard, E.g, they are on the outside of the frame. You need either an Internal or Integrated headset. And yes, these do come with the bearings inside.

Answers

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: 
I believe it will not. You will need an integrated headset for your rig- your headtube is 44mm I believe.
